Talk comments[edit]

I'm sorry, but your multiple sentences in multiple different comments were too hard for me to understand. I have removed them instead. (talk) 21:21, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

For the record, this is an asinine reply to comments I left on the IP's page during a dispute. He's making huge edits which produce effectively no meaningful difference in output but are quite hard to review because of how he changes non-functional whitespace. I'm not the only editor to complain and revert his changes. His response was to revert the edits to his talk page informing him of the reasons for the revert, with the above comment.

Hey after our productive discussion over at Drop bear. What do you think of Gunni? I just started a discussion on its talk page - doesn't seem notable at all.--ZayZayEM (talk) 13:19, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Never heard of it before, that single reference doesn't seem to advance the case of notability. I'm not a Australian resident, so I don't know whether that cryptocritter has any local traction or not. A quick glance on the web turns up basically Wikipedia and Wikia, which suggests a hobby-horse rather than any real rumor. Tarl.Neustaedter (talk) 15:34, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

IP on Space Elevator[edit]

FYI: This IP, already has an established account which he's still using. SW3 5DL (talk) 19:42, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

Any idea why he's using his logged-out IP address instead of his account, since he still uses it? I presume it's not a case of sock-puppetry. Tarl.Neustaedter (talk) 22:20, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
No ideas. I've seen him on other articles, one in particular most recently, where he caused a lot of disruption under his named account. He goes from page to page doing that. And yes, he's been a sock on a few articles. Under one of his named accounts, he's been indefinitely banned. He has several named accounts that he eventually abandoned, but he has one named account that he always goes back to. He's harassed me for a long time. I always know it's him because he always lets me know he's around. He always finds a way. Look at his talk page history. He deletes what he doesn't like. You'll get a better idea of him from that.

Hi Tarl, What do you think should be the status of the NPOV tag on Space Elevator? I'd really like to make it go away. I imagine that since IP69 posted it and because he's banned, that it could be removed summarily as the work of a banned editor. I'd prefer not to do that though. I'd rather there be some agreement. Have you had a chance to review the "will" --> "would" changes? Skyway (talk) 20:54, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Further revised the lede and removed the NPOV tag. As for the IP, as best I know, is not banned. If he is using that IP as a sock puppet of a banned account, you can complain at WP:SPI and get the IP banned, but I don't have any evidence for such myself. Regards, Tarl.Neustaedter (talk) 23:24, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, it's hard to say. Skyway (talk) 00:32, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

The only way to know is if you recognize him. Right now a checkuser would not be useful since they can't compare his old account with the new one. Too old. But he's on that article to make trouble. That's his goal and he'll manipulate and use policy, and keep at it until he gets tired of it. I agree, you should remove the tag. Also be alert to any interest in the article from a named account that suddenly shows up and supports him. SW3 5DL (talk) 15:40, 24 January 2016 (UTC)
