Block Comment[edit]

The user who posted that comment on my talk page is very new, and may not understand the difference between a block and an AFC decline. I declined the submission of the user's autobiography because it contained too much peacock language, a common problem in autobiographies. I have gone to the Teahouse to ask for additional, friendly but policy-based, advice from other experienced editors to this very new user. I hope that answers your question.

Discrimination against atheists[edit]

Please, see this. Chronus (talk) 16:19, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

I don't care what happens on Wikimedia. All I know is that you've made no use whatsoever of talk pages on Wikipedia, instead choosing to try to achieve consensus (I am assuming good faith) by edit warring and edit summaries. If I happen to unprotect the page, both of you will be blocked for edit warring the moment either of you touch that article without discussing it. --jpgordon::==( o ) 16:35, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

I apologize and thanks for not blocking me. --MehrdadFR (talk) 11:44, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

User:Socks 01[edit]

I see you declined the unblock request for Socks 01 (talk · contribs). I've been aware of this user for a long time as there's an overlap in the articles we edit. While he clearly has a limited understanding of image copyright, he is in other respects a productive editor, and the vandalism spree was very much out of character. I asked another checkuser about the case in IRC and was advised there was no indication of account hijacking, so I conclude that either Socks left his computer logged in and someone else used it, or he was under the influence in some way. The edits were made after 9 pm on a Friday night, local time. I suggest we give him another chance, and I'll happily block him myself if anything like this re-occurs.-gadfium 03:15, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Your call; feel free to unblock. --jpgordon::==( o ) 15:20, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Great minds...[edit]

Block of User:Gateofhorn[edit]

Hello! Is there a link to a sock puppet query regarding Gateofhorn (talk · contribs)? Given that there were so many user names that popped up out of nowhere on that page and given the regular harassment and insults I've been getting from them, I'd like to know how it went down and if all of those new users were socks or what. Thanks! :bloodofox: (talk) 19:59, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Here's a list of other apparently related accounts, btw:
If nothing else, might be of interest. :bloodofox: (talk) 20:11, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
There wasn't a WP:SPI investigation; you might want to start up one of those, based at least partially on the socks of User:Carlraschke that I've already blocked. I won't be much help -- I'm going on vacation for about ten days and will only be sporadically available. Anyway, I did block several of these as Carlraschke socks. --jpgordon::==( o ) 21:18, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
Okay, I'll see if I can follow up. Enjoy your vacation! :bloodofox: (talk) 01:07, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
