The chap keeps IP-hopping and continuing his nonsense on my page and at Talk:Jesus. The latest one seems to be I think a semi-protect on my user page might be in order so this charming person can get back to his homework. —  Cliftonian (talk)  15:46, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

@Cliftonian: Yeah, it was happening pretty much as fast as I was blocking IPs! I've put a short-term semi-protect onto your user and Jeppiz and Talk:Jesus. If any of these need extending, shortening or otherwise, let me know. Harrias talk 15:50, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
Ta. Have a great rest of the weekend. —  Cliftonian (talk)  15:51, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Harrias. Seems the troll has since moved on to my talk page instead, could I ask for it to be semi-protected as well, and same thing for Cliftonian in case it becomes a problem and Cliftonian wants it semi-protected. Jeppiz (talk) 15:55, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I'd appreciate that as well. —  Cliftonian (talk)  15:56, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
Done and done. Harrias talk 15:57, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
Jesus Christ. He's now at, writing this crap on my user talk archives. —  Cliftonian (talk)  16:01, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
@Cliftonian:I just noticed that. I'm at a bit of a loss; whoever this is clearly has far too much time on their hands. Harrias talk 16:04, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
Similar abuse at User:DeCausa/Sandbox[1][2][3] by (talk · contribs · WHOIS), part of an intermittent attack on DeCausa's talk page, talk page archives etc that's been going on for a couple of weeks and led to protection of some pages - all expired at present, I think. NebY (talk) 16:31, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
@NebY: Cheers, I've stuck a block on that IP too. I'll take a look through the history and see if there's anything we can do to try and prevent this, but a dedicated person on varying IPs can cause a lot of trouble. Harrias talk 16:35, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
Interesting. Yes, that's definitely the same person who I've been getting. Latterly he's been IP hopping Emirates Telecom IPs (whois gives the same name consistently: Nour Eddin I. Hamdan, but I guess that doesn't mean anything.) Until recently he was routing his IP address randomly around the globe, but the MO changed. It started in May and I'm fairly sure it's a registered user socking - just don't know which one. DeCausa (talk) 16:53, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
DeCausa Have you had a checkuser look at any of them to see if there is any crossover with an active user? Harrias talk 17:09, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
No - my understanding is checkusers won't do that sort of 'fishing expedition'. But I'm no expert on that - do you think differently? DeCausa (talk) 17:21, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

IP block[edit]

Out of interest, did you mean to block (talk · contribs · WHOIS) indef? WP:IPBLENGTH. BencherliteTalk 15:37, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

Bencherlite No. I noticed at the end of a spate of blocks of the same person IP hopping, and dropped the last block down to a week, but then got sidetracked and forgot to drop the others. Thanks to your reminder, I've just gone through and sorted the rest, cheers! Harrias talk 17:41, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
No problem. I'd blocked a couple earlier on for 31 hours, and added some semi-protections, then you took over, for which I ought to have thanked you earlier. BencherliteTalk 18:49, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

User talk:Skiruba08[edit]

This page is not loading on my screen properly. Other pages are loading. --Galaxy Kid (talk) 11:31, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

@Galaxy Kid: It looks like they might have tried to create a page, but with html, or maybe copied source code from elsewhere (more likely). Either way, it was that user's only edit as far as I can tell, and it was in 2011, so I've deleted it. Harrias talk 11:45, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Thanks for grabbing that IP *pheww* Face-smile.svg samtar {t} 11:30, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
@Samtar: No worries. Nice work reverting them. Experience suggests that this particular bundle of trouble will reappear soon with another IP. I've re-protected Jeppiz's user and talk pages, as they were harassed before. I'm more than happy to do the same for your if it becomes an issue. There is an ANI thread Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#Disruptive campaign by IP hopper in United Arab Emirates, ongoing which I've noted this on. Harrias talk 11:38, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
Cheers again Harrias, Jeppiz is on my watchlist for some reason stalk stalk, so I'll keep an eye out Face-smile.svg samtar {t} 11:41, 19 November 2015 (UTC)


...for dealing with the IP vandal on my user pages. Much appreciated. DeCausa (talk) 15:44, 19 November 2015 (UTC)


Don't be shy about immediately blocking indef any of these sockpuppets with talkpage access and email revoked. 2116 was at least the 16th sock, and the ANI edit summary alone warranted aggressive action. Acroterion (talk) 11:38, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

@Acroterion: Cheers, I'd blocked for the personal attack on User:Curly Turkey's talk page, and then saw the rest. Didn't know that it was a sock, though I assumed as much. Will bear it in mind if I see the name around again. Harrias talk 15:19, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
It's hard to keep track of the socks, and I've done exactly the same thing from time to time when confronted with unfamiliar socks. It helps that some seem to be compelled to number them! Acroterion (talk) 15:33, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
