Karasawa Takahiro[edit]

This is a single issue editor who harasses and threatens anyone who refers to Sakhalin/Karafuto, Kuril Islands and other contested territory between Russia and Japan as Russian territory. He has threatened to put them on his enemies list [1] [2] or made more general attacks against their character.[3] ,categorically refered to Russophiles (including people who just like Russian things) as "Traitors"[4] and has used racist slurs in edit summaries.[5][6] Oh, and personal attacks in edit summaries of him deleting talk page comments he didn't agree with just hours ago.[7] He's not very regular user appearing only sporadically. But whenever he does he goes to the same antics of attacking people for bullshit Japanese nationalist reasons. Hell, I don't know why he attacked FluffyDolphin in the first link I provided in the first place. I didn't find anything that Dolphin had done to offend him so. Is it possible that this person Karasawa Takahiro is just a completely toxic individual? I'm requesting for some sanction to be made to make clear that his anti Russian racism and harassment of other editors is not ok.

@Karasawa Takahiro is not autopatrolled. The relevant pages could be just be protected for a month. The coop seems unnecessary. You probably should have raised this issue on the RationalWiki talk:All things in moderation page instead. Bongolian (talk) 02:11, 7 November 2020 (UTC)
The pages related to his pet issues could be protected, but should his abuse and threats against other editors be tolerated? As demonstrated by the threat "I will recognize you as an enemy" at ThyFluffyDolphins talk page, he seems to be making this attacks against truly random people. Sure, they could be reverted, but I feel people have been sanctioned for less. Hell, GR was almost banned for creating an enemies list, and Karasawa Takahiro is threatening people with just that.

Why is this a Coop case? We're not even close to HCM. Why not just give this person a one-week block (if not an outright ban) or something? --Goatspeed. Fossil evidence of my evolutionCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee my latest prototypes 02:36, 7 November 2020 (UTC)
It seems like it's more like a threat of creating an enemies list. GR had an actual enemies list. We can wait till some other editors weigh in on this I guess. Bongolian (talk) 02:41, 7 November 2020 (UTC)
Just out of curiosity, who is this "GR"? Do they have anything to do with the recent D/Abd/Smith drama? --Goatspeed. Fossil evidence of my evolutionCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee my latest prototypes 02:47, 7 November 2020 (UTC)
The less said about GR the better. At any rate, this does not seem coopable. Perhaps we should message Takahiro on his talkpage, and make sure nobody demotes him until he has changed his behavior.-Flandres (talk) 02:55, 7 November 2020 (UTC)
(EC)"If you disagree with my claim, I will recognize you as an enemy" against User:ThyFluffyDolphin[8] and User:BluePink[9]. Both were made within the last week. His racist slur against User:Hastur[10] is from August (in the edit summary...is Hastur even Russian actually?). And he used that same slur two days later (also in edit summary).[11] And the personal attacks in the edit summary of this talk page deletion[12]
I mean his grasp of English doesn't seem very good and maybe he doesn't understand the implications of the "I will recognize you as an enemy", but the repeated use of the word "Ruskie" and saying things like "Fuck you Russophiles" or "Russophillia is traitor" (again, edit summary)[13] is pretty vile.

I would propose a lengthy block or topic ban. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 01:51, 7 November 2020 (UTC)

Since the user in question isn't even auto patrolled, I recommend moving this whole discussion over to the moderator notice board. I don't think this rises to the level of a coop case. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 02:43, 7 November 2020 (UTC)
Shall I do that now and archive this? --Goatspeed. Fossil evidence of my evolutionCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee my latest prototypes 02:48, 7 November 2020 (UTC)
I'm ok with that. I just feel some action should be taken against this recurring toxic editor. Where it's discussed is irrelevant to me. Sorry if this was the wrong place to put it in. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 02:54, 7 November 2020 (UTC)
