CU evidence goes back three months. There's no way they could have told if the person using Spencer195 was the same one using it now.

Up to a point. If a checkuser is run now it can only go back three months. But maybe Spencer195 had been checked at some point in the past, whether for some reason or just because a CU felt like doing it That CU could have copied the results to a file and kept it. Or maybe Spencer195 was stupid enough to send someone an e-mail not using Gmail; then the IP would be in the e-mail header forever.


Given that he stopped editing in 2005, I find that highly unlikely. Also, I doubt Mikemikev knows Mandarin.


Mikemikev spent four months in China teaching English as a foreign langauge at the North China Electric University., although the timing is wrong.

Spencer195 has now been indefinitely blocked by Deskana, who gave these reasons for blocking.

Hello, did someone say "knows Mandarin"?

Secondly, you state that the policy on alternative accounts was different and asked what policy you violated. That is not an adequate defense. Policy is descriptive, not prescriptive; the fact that the policy has changed does not mean that community standards have. Thirdly, I was active around the time you left and I can assure you that this kind of behaviour was also unacceptable back then, regardless of what the policy stated.

Deskana concedes that no policy was violated but claims that Spencer's behaviour was nevertheless so unacceptable that a block was needed. Why? On what grounds?
QUOTE
Thidly (sic), you also stated that you don't see what you did wrong. This is the most disturbing thing, and the one (sic) of the main reasons I have blocked you.

Fancy that! He believed that since he acted 100% in accordance with policy he had done nothing wrong!! Block him immediately!!!

Ha, this led me to this gem of "original research" in the article on primogeniture:
QUOTE
The term "uterine" implies the woman in whose uterus a fetus developed, which is usually, but not always, the woman whose egg was fertilized to form the embryo. Prior to the 1970s, these were always the same woman, as remains the case for naturally conceived children. However, in cases of surrogacy, in vitro fertilization, and egg donation, it is now possible for a baby born from the uterus of one woman to be the genetic offspring of the egg of another offspring. Therefore, it is now important to distinguish between forms of primogeniture in which inheritance is determined by the woman from whose ovary the egg originated, which could be called "ovarian primogeniture" for clarity, and forms of primogeniture in which inheritance is truly determined uterinely, i.e., by the woman in whose uterus a fetus developed.
The section is titled "Uterine (or ovarian) primogeniture" to reflect the idiosyncratic musings of the feckless author.

Wikipedia, always good for a laugh.

Here we go again. After I confronted Mikemikev and he ended up blocked, Mikemikev crawls back to ED in order to fulfill his or her quest for revenge. Since another sysop decided to tolerate him, I won't attempt to reverse that sysop's decision and re-block him.

Jeffrey, since the ED material has all been deleted and the account blocked, the best is for you to blank your posts. Thanks.

On YouTube Mikemikev wrote a stream of racist attacks, so bad that his account was shut down.

Youtube postings of Mikemikev

On wikipedia he has invented socks with names like "Juden Raus", a username that expressed his personal racist point of view fairly succinctly. One of the newly found socks was not much better:

Old user page of Ghear5849
Their first edit

There are some very creepy people around.


Ghear5849 is nothing to do with me. I shut down my YT account myself. Mathsci is a liar and a troll. He has been called "creepy" by women (FeraghoTheAssassin) on WP, so I guess this is his way of projecting his inadequacies.

Mathsci didn't accuse you of possessing an sysop account; Mathsci accused you of being Rrrrr5 (T-C-L-K-R-D) . Although Mathsci was wrong about "Rrrrr5" being you, he was correct in saying that Rrrrr5 was a sockpuppet. A CheckUser later revealed that the sysop account "Spencer195" might've been compromised by the person behind the "Rrrrr5" account:

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...oldid=431521166

Mathsci's case against you initially didn't mention "Spencer195" or any other compromised sysop accounts, so he isn't "caught up in [his] own lies." The stuff about "Spencer195" was added later by users other than Mathsci:

Which is all entirely irrelevant to "Beer me"'s original false assertion that I was an admin caught socking.

BTW it was you that deleted my hilarious Dramatica article?
