Hi Leonid, I hope this reaches you.

For I suppose masochistic reasons, I just looked in at plasma cosmology and its discussion and noticed you. I'd like to chat about your interest in plasma cosmology. You can reach me at As you no doubt noticed, I'm banned from editing any wikipedia article that I know something about, on the grounds that my expertise is a conflict of interest. Have you visited the website?

Regards, Eric Lerner


I sure will feel silly if you are exonerated, but at this point that seems very unlikely. Art LaPella 07:06, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

Removing sockpuppet tag per this Checkuser result showing Leokor to be unrelated to Iantresman. Cardamon 07:39, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Is this how you see it, then?[edit]

Continued from Wikipedia:Requests for checkuser/Case/Iantresman, because I'm not sure if this kind of debate is appropriate for that page. No, that matter was not somehow "already decided". I have never communicated with mainstream cosmology advocates except on Wikipedia pages you can read yourself. I promoted this investigation by myself, even though at one point it seemed to be dead just because I couldn't figure out the CheckUser procedure. The very phrase "that one side of the plasma cosmology/mainstream vendetta has once again outmuscled the other" implies that I often distrust each side's commitment to objective truth (some individuals in particular). Would you rather I said that Applecola was banned just to censor plasma cosmology? That seems very unlikely, and anyway I would need some very solid evidence indeed to make that accusation. So instead I said that going through with a CheckUser would prevent anyone from suspecting that accusation is true. As for my evidence against you, I certainly thought it was considerable, but I have been proven wrong. Art LaPella 04:58, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

But CheckUser was not performed. So why was Applecola banned? --Leokor 16:12, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

The CheckUser instructions say not to use it in case of obvious sockpuppetry. Raul654, who has presumably played this game far more often than I have, must have considered it obvious. Art LaPella 17:27, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

MastCell says that a CheckUser was performed on Tsyko in connection with the Martinphi-ScienceApologist case. The way to confirm this would be to ask Raul654 directly. (CheckUser can also be done in connection with Arbcom cases.) Cardamon 19:34, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Thank you. Although I got the details wrong, this confirms my main point: Ian had some nerve wanting to be released from a ban he was in the very process of evading. I'm glad I bumbled my way through this process, so I could help arrive at that finding. Art LaPella 20:44, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
