OccultZone sockfarm[edit]

Thanks for unearthing this.
I have interacted for years with some of the accounts, and seen other around on India/Hinduism related pages and while there were clear ideological matches, that ideology was not uncommon enough for me to to suspect sockpuppetry at such a massive scale. Genuinely shocked and wondering I was the only one walking around with such giant blinkers. Not sure how you go to the bottom of this, but real glad you did.

I was a bit surprised at the extent of it myself, but between the CU evidence and the behavioral evidence, I could only come to one conclusion. ​—DoRD (talk)​ 17:43, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
But OccultZone came in 2013 while Amritsyaputra was from 2008. Amritsya whatever his name is, is the actual sockmaster. 2013 2008.--Cosmic  Emperor  05:28, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
I realize that, but as I stated in the case, I named it that way to go along with the ArbCom case. ​—DoRD (talk)​ 12:29, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Hi DoRD, I realise you are limited in what you can say - if you have to reply now with "no comment" then so be it. Is it possible that active accounts were missed when you did the OZ check? I've got a couple exhibiting odd behaviour but it would definitely need a CU & there's no point filing if the CU has already covered that ground. - Sitush (talk) 12:21, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

My mistake[edit]

Oh, DoRD, I don't know what happened with this edit! I was looking at an old revision of this user page and then Chrome crashed and I just reopened it to find it undid your work. I'm sorry, I don't know how that happened. My apologies to you. Liz Read! Talk! 21:59, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

No worries, anyone with a rollback button is bound to misclick once in a while. A few days ago, I had to rollback my rollback of a rollback. Thanks for the note ​—DoRD (talk)​ 22:05, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
The thought that Liz would do this maliciously actually makes me smile - she's one of the most cautious and thoughtful editors we have.--Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 22:06, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
I know, right? ​—DoRD (talk)​ 22:08, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
Well, that is kind of you to say. But I still don't know how it happened. I was looking at a previous version of the page and I don't see how the browser shutting down would cause the most recent edit to be undone. I should take responsibility but I really don't remember hitting that button.
I've just been looking at the user pages of these sock accounts wondering if I could see any relation to each other. I still don't know how one person juggles that many different accounts with a different persona for each. Liz Read! Talk! 22:16, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
Hmmm...if you didn't misclick, I haven't a clue how the rollback happened. I've never seen anything like that before, but if it happens again, I'd mention it on WP:VPT. As for OZ, that remains a mystery. Unless he lets us in on what's going on, or some pertinent evidence surfaces, I'm just as much in the dark as everyone else. ​—DoRD (talk)​ 22:28, 4 June 2015 (UTC)


The user was brought for spi investigation by you. One of his socks "Fundarise" participated in an rfc on Barelvi article. He commented in defence of Gorge and sounds alot like GorgeCustersSabre because they both edit on South asian related articles. Fundarise's Barelvi ANI post is almost identical to Gorge's post in barelvi rfc, One other thing Gorge has been in conflict with xtremedood looking at his talk page. Can you check if they are related? (talk) 02:08, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

Muktar allebbey SPI[edit]

Hi! I know that you are very busy. I just thought that maybe you forgot about the WP:Sockpuppet investigations/Muktar allebbey case. Just to remind you, I sent you a (somewhat scaled down) copies of e-mails that Hadraa has linked at a discussion page trying to prove his point. They are hard to read, but if you enlarge, it becomes readable (at least I was able to read). The e-mail address and username is a clear evidence of connection between Hadraa and the sockmaster.
