Personal attack[edit]

Hi, Mike. Sorry to bother you. It looks like you have plenty to do.

I saw your name in a talkpage discussion with a user named Otterathome. The topic seemed to be crosslinking and redirects. I am just about out of my depth with such, so you tell me.

I learn a lot about concensus and policies/practices by reading userpages and usertalk pages. Otherwise I would not have seen this.

Otterathome's userpage seems to be redirected to his talk page. No problem. I see more and more people doing that. What surprised me was a link to MY userpage, thusly: "I don't like some people, particularly this user, and this other guy, but I put up with them." I'm having to paraphrase—I tried a copy/paste, but it didn't work. Point is, I seem to be "this user". These links won't work, either, but if you visit him "at home", the first link—in a hatnote at the top of his talkpage—links to MY userpage. Looking at his edit history, this link seems to have been there since 2008 or 2009. At that time I had only made one edit. I usually remember usernames, unless they are gibberish. but I don't remember ever interacting with this guy at all. From what I'm reading, though, he seems to have a habit of deleting comments from talkpages, if he sees them as off-topic. I have an idea he's made some enemies(I don't wonder), and maybe he has me confused with one if them.

Now I know Wikipedia is a big place, and I really don't care if the person likes me. I would just like that link removed from his talkpage. Were the situation reversed, I'm sure he would have already fixed it, but I try to keep my fingers off of what doesn't belong to me. You might not be the best person to bring this to, so maybe you can direct me to a more proper venue. My time here is limited, and I won't spend it on feuding and vendettas, so maybe it would be best to delete this message, once you decide what to do, or do not. I'll go with whatever you decide. rags (talk) 05:10, 27 March 2018 (UTC)

I didn't see your notice of a hiatus until I went into the most recent archive. Maybe it needs a {{}}, so it remains visible. I'll leave this here a few days, and then delete it myself. I wouldn't put it past this Otter-person to follow my contribs. rags (talk) 05:36, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
@Ragityman: Apologies for not responding, as I'm obviously nowhere near as active as I used to be. I think I know what you're talking about by looking at the history of that userpage, but it was considered an obvious abuse of usage of userpage and was removed by an admin back in 2009. Since then, everything on that page has been removed, and the page redirects to his talk page. Given that this was 9 years ago, I don't think I would worry about that specific userpage version. --MuZemike 02:53, 4 May 2018 (UTC)


You applied a speedy tag to User:MuZemike/User Windows 7 without surrounding it with <noinclude></noinclude>. That had the effect of sending the user pages of eight other users to CAT:CSD. It would have served you right if I had deleted them. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 21:12, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

@RHaworth: Sorry about that. I would normally know that, but it's been a long time. --MuZemike 21:38, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

Obvious sock is obvious[edit]

Just exposed to two other fellows some liaison to w:ja:LTA:YOT. Now noticed that User:JotCeVauDe should be marked on his edit-protected page, as obvious one, not suspected one, according to the Special:Contributions/JotCeVauDe. Please correct this as already these ones:

Something like this:

User:JotCeVauDe is sole suspected-marked, while all the rest is obvious-marked. Please correct. Special:Contributions/JotCeVauDe makes it obvious not suspected. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A00:1828:1000:2217:0:0:0:2 (talk) 10:19, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
