You're getting this from the Horsey's mouth: according to a very reliable source, I hear everybody's favorite old bag, Risker, has "strong reason" to believe that the list leaker was none other than the last Boy Scout himself, Rlevse. In Risker's mind, Rlevse still had some old access, emails, etc. It is also why the information was targeted in one direction (mostly against old enemies).
Do you think that Risker is on the right track? Or is she be sticking her thermometer in the wrong orifice?
A few days after the first leak appeared on WR User:Rlevse became a subject of SPI
. SPI was started on June29, the first leak was posted on June 23 I believe. I believe the accusations against suspected sock of Rlevse started to appear around June 21. At least the user who was suspected in socking tried to leave Wikipedia on June 21 see here
So, if Malice and BarkingMoon is Rlevse, the problems on Wikipedia that started on June 21 could have triggered appearance of the leaks on June 23.
I am not sure if BarkingMoon was Rlevse , but whoever the user was Rlevse could have known what was going on.
On the other hand if the new user even was Rlevse did it mean he was socking? After all vanished CrisO created a new account and is allowed to contribute to wikipedia.
Whatever Rlevse and BarkingMoon stories are I feel sorry for them, as almost for everybody, who gets mercilessly attacked by so called wikipedia community.
