Notice of Conflict of interest noticeboard discussion[edit]

Information icon This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Conflict of interest/Noticeboard regarding a possible conflict of interest incident in which you may be involved. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:306:3A29:9B90:7588:653:6216:2A44 (talk) 21:29, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

I can confirm that I have worked with ACE, and this is why I have never edited their wikipedia article. I did not realize that an AfD comment would count as a conflict of interest, though. I will edit the AfD page to make this more clear. — Eric Herboso 01:19, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

Notice of Conflict of interest noticeboard discussion[edit]

Information icon This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Conflict of interest/Noticeboard regarding a possible conflict of interest incident in which you may be involved. Thank you. NeatGrey (talk) 02:15, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

Although I have been involved with Animal Charity Evaluators and the effective altruism movement, I have had no conflict of interest on the articles in the linked accusation. I have never edited any of these articles. I am also not a "new account"; I have been on wikipedia since 2004. I have been active ONLY in the AfD discussion on these articles, and for good reason: because I am familiar with what the articles are talking about. This does not constitute a conflict of interest, asI am merely an editor who knows about the topic and is explaining why the article should not be deleted on the related AfD page. — Eric Herboso 03:52, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

Notice to Visitors to my Talk Page[edit]

As can be seen above, in the past two months I have been accused multiple times of having a conflict of interest, of having a single purpose account, and of having a sockpuppet account. In each of these cases, I have been absolved of wrongdoing. If you are on my talk page with the intent of further accusing me of misconduct on Wikipedia, please double check to ensure that you're not just lumping me in together with a group of others that are breaking WP rules. My edit history should be enough to show that I am being a good wikipedian. If you nevertheless think I am breaking some rule, please go ahead and make the accusation; I just want to ensure that future editors don't just group me in with other wrongdoers automatically as has happened three times in the past two months. — Eric Herboso 10:00, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

For reference, here's a copy of the related sock puppet accusation, which never officially made it to my talk page:

18 April 2016[edit]

This SPI case is closed and will be archived shortly by an SPI clerk or CheckUser.
Suspected sockpuppets

See Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Wild animal suffering. There were three votes in a row from accounts with few edits and red names, so it seemed like once again someone with multiple accounts voting at AfD as commonly seen. I have brought many such cases here before.

I also looked at some of the edits and there were some similarities. However the accounts were made months before, so it's a bit out of the ordinary. I think the core thing to check would be the red accounts since I estimate at least two will match each other.

Oh and Eric is less suspectible and I apologize to him for including him here, but I found some similarities in writing style so I thought it best to just make sure and clarify. It's likely just a coincidence. CheckUser will if anything likely just find two red names related and that's about it. I hope no ill will is held. Mr. Magoo (talk) 21:00, 18 April 2016 (UTC)


Additionally I just noticed that the accounts for the exception of one have also voted in unison at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Earning to give. Some of the accounts had also voted at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Abolitionism (bioethics). There was a red-name account with few edits there as well: Fredrik Bränström, but possibly unrelated as it was created many years ago. --Mr. Magoo (talk) 21:15, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

I don't think NeatGrey is a sockpuppet. They've given fairly objective critiques on EA-related articles and haven't been consistently "pro-EA" or "anti-EA". Eric Herboso and Fredrik Branstrom are both real names of people in the EA movement, so I doubt that those accounts belong to the same person, though Branstrom was recruited to the abolitionism page through canvassing.Pawg14 (talk) 15:06, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

Clerk, CheckUser, and/or patrolling admin comments[edit]

  • I did not check Eric Herboso based on lack of evidence, not to mention conviction, presented by the filer. If a clerk wishes to endorse a check of this user, I will reconsider.

Prevalence versus incidence[edit]

The ALS article was discussing incidence and what you added was prevalence. Thus restored. Best Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 07:05, 4 November 2016 (UTC)
