Basic information[edit]

Channel 6 (talkcontribsblock logautospiconfirmed socks
suspected socks
)

Comprehensive edits analysis
This user has been creating and recreating articles about one Sarey Savy, a non-notable teenaged singer from Cambodia. Despite the fact that this account and other subsequent socks have been blocked and the original title salted, Channel 6 has continued to post variations on the name since at least December 2008. User does not respond to concerns by other users; it is almost certain that this user is in fact the subject in question. He/she is almost certainly editing via proxies. One example is User:89.187.133.14 which resolves to the Czech Republic while another example, User:67.171.7.158 resolves to Tacoma, Washington.
