vandal on Murder of Riley Ann Sawyers[edit]

WTH was with that? the only connection with JonBenet Ramsey is that they were both murdered children and blonde... and JonBenet wasn't even a real blonde! Paul Benjamin Austin (talk) 22:52, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

@Paul Benjamin Austin: I don't know that I'd call it vandalism; the editor may have been acting in good faith. Cheers! —ATS 🖖 talk 22:58, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

...death vandal[edit]

Hi ATS, saw your template at Jeanette Nolan. I doubt this will be of any long-term use to you, because the geolocation doesn't seem to match up, but I recall a similar vandal that I reported at the subtle-vandalism task force in 2014. The details are here. That guy used UK IPs, not US-based ones, so that's why I think it may be a false alarm, but I noticed that your guy tended to add superfluous days of the week, and my guy would add "on the evening of" and "on the morning of" and crap like that. Also had a focus on death causes. I know that I've also seen instances of "she bore him", but nothing so glaring that I would remember where it came from. I don't know anything about how edit filters work or how they could help, but maybe they can alert you to phrasing like "she bore him"? Anyway, I figured I'd say something even if it turns up nothing. Regards, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 05:07, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

Whoops... Just did a search of my edit summaries and found this reversion of mine which led me to Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Stylized as "stylized" currently; formerly "stylizeD"/Archive. Hope that gives you some more info. If he springs up again, it might be a good idea to open an SPI and incorporate your links and some explanations of the behavior just to make it easier to find later. I'm sure I'll forget the details and won't remember where to look. Regards, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 05:13, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

Hi, Cyphoidbomb! I took a look and I don't think it's the same guy. Meantime, there've been a couple of reports already on the guy I'm watching; there's limited action to be taken against someone who jumps IPs virtually at will, and an SPI wouldn't tell us anything we don't already know. The talk templates, the category, the edit filter, and my manual search of IP strings helps revert him as quickly as possible, and every time he attacks anew his ISP gets another email. We'll stop him one way or another. Cheers! —ATS 🖖 talk 06:27, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
