Introduction[edit]

This page aims to keep track of the various known and suspected socks of User:Maleabroad. The motivation is to consolidate sock investigations in one place.

Note that socks sometimes appear as unregistered IP users, often from the IP range 136.159.32.*

This thread and this one suggest that there may be meatpuppets involved, too.

Anyone is free to contribute and add to this page, but for obvious reasons I (i.e. Abecedare) retain the right to revert/refactor any changes.

  • How to use this page:
    • If you spot an editor, who you suspect is a sock of Maleabroad, add his name as a new section.
    • List specific diffs and explain what ties the edit to Maleabroad.
    • If you are convinced that your/someone else's suspicion is unfounded, please strike out the corresponding entry.
    • Add the template {{sock|Maleabroad}} to the corresponding user page so that the Category:Suspected Wikipedia sockpuppets of Maleabroad is updated.
    • Maleabroad often adds many external links. You can quickly find the same URL on other pages using: Special:Linksearch
    • If you are an admin and are convinced by the evidence presented here, please block the corresponding account.
    • Once a sock is checkusered and/or blocked, please move it to the closed section.
    • Smile ... and repeat cycle. :-)

  • Familiar disruptive edits related to historical claims, angry edit summaries. First two edits made were to Shiva, both eidts involving controversial historical points that are part of the complex of Hindutva ideas. Buddhipriya 03:24, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

Philosopher1 (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log)[edit]

  • Familiar pattern of disruptive edits on Lingam and now Christianity. I think he is changing his pattern of pages following the very strong action against him. Buddhipriya 17:04, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
  • I suspect that Maleabroad is now involved with Lingam in connection with previous vandalism related to the Ligayat sect, as another confirmed sock of his (ChangeDetection) has been active there. See: [[7]]. For those who may be unfamiliar with this issue, the Lingayats are connected with certain social and political themes which Maleabroad espouses, and the Linga is an important symbol for them. Buddhipriya 19:20, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
  • In a clever twist, User:Philosopher1 has accused me of being a sock of Maleabroad. See: [8]. In response to my vandalism report he was given a short block per this edit: [9] Buddhipriya 19:20, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Share01 (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log)[edit]

  • Username fits a common pattern of his involving use of 1 at end of a capitalized word, plus tension between Buddhist and Hindus and concern about use of the word Hindu for Brahmanic. [10] Buddhipriya 04:25, 24 March 2007 (UTC)


Shiftgear (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log)[edit]

SolidStar (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log)}[edit]

  • Active in same time period as sock User:Solidentry, main activity is to tag things as "brahmin" including Buddhist items. He appears to be on a Buddhist theme today. Buddhipriya 21:32, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Straycode (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log)[edit]

  • It may be too early to be sure that this is Maleabroad, but I have a gut feeling that the disruptive pattern of editing here is a sign of a tactic change. The pattern of immediately going into an edit war is characteristic on this brand new account. If he is not getting results on Hinduism pages he may be moving to direct disruption of Buddhism articles. Please put Buddhism on your watch pages. Edits show preoccupation with the origin of Buddhism. [16] Buddhipriya 22:40, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

  • At first I was not not sure if this is a sock of Maleabroad or one of the other POV pushers, but it is definitely a sock of ChangeDetection, placking links to the web site, and editing on the same pages in some cases. It is proven to be Maleabroad by evidence for ChangeDetection. Buddhipriya 01:08, 30 March 2007 (UTC)
