Don't worry about the vandal[edit]

Hey there. I just wanted to note that I'm trying to get admins to track down the repeat vandal who's been hitting a number of articles regarding spamfighters. I suspect the same person is behind the recent spate of vandalism, blanking, or libel at Brian J. Bruns, Steve Linford, SPEWS, and so on. I've put in a checkuser request to find out just how much of the recent harassment and vandalism are the same crook.

You don't know me, but I used to be a semi-regular NANAE participant, and I have a great deal of appreciation for the amount of work that people like you and Stiff Linefeed put into keeping the world's email system usable. --FOo 04:11, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia's LGBT Community[edit]

Gay flag.svg

Hi, Bruns!
You've indicated through various means (a userbox, membership in a category, etc) that you are part of the Wikipedia LGBT community, or are interested in Wikipedia's LGBT related pages. Welcome!

You may not know that Wikipedia has both an LGBT Notice Board and an LGBT Studies WikiProject. If you haven't yet done so, take a look at both of them. They sorely need attention and participation!

Some things on the "To-Do List" that merit particular attention include:

  1. Identifying topics/pages that need attention
  2. Identifying problems that need addressing
  1. Adding the LGBT template to appropriate pages
  2. Categorizing LGBT pages

Please feel free to participate in any or all of these activities! And if you feel like it, add yourself to either the Noticeboard Members or the WikiProject Participants - or both!

Glad you're a part of Wikipedia - and Thanks! This invitation posted here by SatyrTN -- talk
Please remove it if you so desire.

WikiProject LGBT studies[edit]

Hello! I noticed that your userpage mentions that you are interested in LGBT issues. Would you be interested in joining WikiProject LGBT studies? The WikiProject's been a bit inactive recently and some of us are trying to get it going again. We'd love to have you on board! Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 21:23, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Barbara Schwarz (4th nomination)[edit]

I think this may interest you. Kind regards, Orsini 05:55, 11 March 2007 (UTC)


This may be of interest. WP:RSN#The_Abusive_Hosts_Blocking_List Orsini 07:18, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Hmmm, thanks, interesting indeed. I need to figure out a worthwhile response I can make... Bri 18:11, 13 October 2007 (UTC)


Hello, hope this finds you well. I noticed that The4325 left you a barnstar for "being Homosexual." (showing a complete lack of understanding of the difference between gender identity and sexuality, which is unfortunately all too typical) He has since been blocked for adding defamatory content to Talk:Homosexuality. Just thought you should know, and you are obviously free to remove the barnstar if you so desire. Have a wonderful holiday season... l'Aquatique talk 02:37, 10 December 2007 (UTC)


You posted some warning for a user at "" - can you please cite evidence of any vandalism? The IP belongs to a shared server and we need to track down the offending user. Vague 'warnings' aren't really helpful. :( —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:16, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

The edit is here[1]. The information added was not NPOV, and was based upon opinion and personal feeling. Brielle (talk) 18:06, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

This is completely incorrect, and the statement should be replaced, and any "warning" removed. SORBS *has* blocked entire /16 blocks, incorrectly blocked vast spaces of New Zealand IP space, and listed several /20 blocks. It is completely false to say that this is based on "opinion and personal feeling." It is a KNOWN FACT. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:34, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

There is no reason for that comment to even be there, other then a spite or jab at Mat. I might take you more seriously if you weren't anonymous. *hint hint*. Regardless, I am not the first person to remove that type of comment. Brielle (talk) 04:59, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

You don't need to take me seriously at all. A simple Google search will verify the claims and prove them. So, you're removing things because you think that they're 'opinion and personal feeling.' I have absolutely no reason to take *you* seriously now either, and even less desire to wage a war with Wikipedia revisionists. Cheers! (And the Vandalism Warning will be removed permanently. It's not vandalism at all, so leave it alone. You can have your inaccurate SORBS page back.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:39, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

'...and a Spammer' ?[edit]

In The Abusive Hosts Blocking List I reverted the bit you put in, 'and a spammer' because I couldn't find the precise reference in the court documents. Did I miss it? If you have good reason to revert it back, just put a sentence of the the wording in the document you are citing in the edit summary, thanks. Jusdafax 04:53, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Its actually part of [[2]] which were part of the dismissal documents. Scoville didn't object to this characterization. Brielle (talk) 04:59, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
Ok. You might put the reference right after the word spammer, then. Happy editing! Jusdafax 05:06, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
That I did, thanks for pointing it out so I can reference it properly! Brielle (talk) 05:25, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
