I believe I've dealt with this editor before when he was editing similar articles using a different IP. He made the same "kids who know nothing hassling smart old me" comments. At the time, he claimed to be a University Professor in Media or some such, posting from his office. Of course, his IP info said differently. He was blocked then, and this new instance is blocked.

Thanks for all the info and the links JoeSperrazza. I appreciate you taking the time to do this and it will be good to have it in one place. In the AN report Binksternet supplied the link to a previous ANI discussion seen here Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/IncidentArchive887#IP troll Stubbornness or trolling either way it is a shame really. Oh, flunking students that disagreed with you is the opposite of what being and educator is about. Thanks again and cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 21:46, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) This is User:Nate Speed. Sro23 (talk) 22:19, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Ah - thanks for the explanation P. The flipping out in the edit summaries is familiar. If my memory dredges up any names I'll let you know. MarnetteD|Talk 22:22, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
Excellent Sro23!! Thanks for posting. MarnetteD|Talk 22:22, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks NinjaRobotPirate. This is all ringing some bells - I think you may have told me about this before. If so I'm glad you refreshed my memory. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 07:23, 4 November 2017 (UTC)


Hi @MarnetteD and DVdm: a quick look at the brief editing history [1] and user page of User:188hnsd strongly suggests they're a sock of Azul411. Just in case you also think the same — best, Darouet (talk) 23:43, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

Hello Darouet. I'm pretty sure that DVdm agrees since they opened this Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Azul411. Hopefully that report will be investigated sooner rather than later. Best regards. MarnetteD|Talk 23:48, 7 March 2019 (UTC)
Whoops, sorry I missed that — thank you! -Darouet (talk) 00:00, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
No worries D. It was a little confusing since DVdm's edit summary linked to the archive page for the SPI rather than the active investigation page. I think DVdm was anticipating the day when the new report would get archived. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 00:08, 8 March 2019 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Thanks for the backup on Christine (novel). I've informed Oshwah (talk · contribs) as they blocked the IP previously for exactly this behavior, but they're currently inactive it seems. I've also just filed a report at AIV, though I don't know whether that was appropriate (IP immediately resuming behavior they were previously blocked for seems blockable to me?). Anywho, thanks again! DonIago (talk) 05:47, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

You are welcome D. I'm winding my evening down so I hope at least one of your posts will help solve things by the time I return. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 05:50, 10 March 2019 (UTC)


Hi. I'm sure you've seen the latest space news. There's more than a hint of 2001 in the pics! Lugnuts Fire Walk with Me 09:07, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

There sure is Lugnuts. Thanks for the link. MarnetteD|Talk 17:30, 10 March 2019 (UTC)


Hi MarnetteD. You put a note on Johnnywalkerfan (talk · contribs) about him being possibly a VXFC sockpuppet. I'm not sure that's right as it's not VXFC's style, this seems more like the racist troll. Can the account be blocked? I don't know how to request that. Many thanks, --Viennese Waltz 08:40, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

You could be right Viennese Waltz (BTW I think your user name is great - it reminds me of when I learned to play Tales from the Vienna Woods on the piano as a youngster) VX has been active again recently and the two do crossover at times. As that editor has only made that one edit I don't know if an admin will block them though you could report at AIV and see what happens. The one thing you can do is add that name to the list at Wikipedia:Long-term abuse/Ref Desk Antisemitic Troll. Also feel free to change the name on the possible sockpuppet tag that I added. Thanks for your vigilance and best regards. MarnetteD|Talk 15:35, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Thank you for your detective work finding the answer to the question on Mme Meerson painting! Dr Dima (talk) 18:20, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
You are welcome Dr Dima and thank you for this barnstar. I found the history of the painting to be fascinating. I'm glad you asked the question since it helped me to learn something new. Best regards. MarnetteD|Talk 19:55, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
