Michaeldsuarez (JuniusThaddeus)[edit]

I'm hereby bringing to the community's attention User:Michaeldsuarez, alias JuniusThaddeus (the name he uses on Encyclopedia Dramatica), and his pattern of concern troll shit-stirring & sealioning on RW while gleefully endorsing attacks on the site & its editors elsewhere.

If this isn't concern troll behaviour, I don't know what is. I have removed Michaeldsuarez's sysop status (and here he is once again playing the innocent, feigning bewilderment as to why he isn't trusted). But really I don't feel he should be welcome here at all. As doxxing is involved, I don't think a lengthy/indefinite block would be inappropriate as with Arisboch & Vordrak.

I refuse to click ED links as they do not let you view anything with an Ad-blocker enabled. I can only imagine what level of shite appears if the ad-blocker is disabled. So I will just take your word for the offsite stuff Weaseloid. Yes burn him and burn him long. Concern trolling of the most disruptive nature.--TheroadtoWiganPier (talk) 08:36, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
Agreed. There's only one way to handle someone like this. - Kitsunelaine 「Beware. The foxgirls are coming.」 08:50, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
Ha. Their ED edits don't even meet ED's standards. (no 'do you believe that' after 'legit complaints', repeatedly and awkwardly inserting themself into the article, etc.) Narky SawtoothNarky.png (Nyarnyar~) 08:59, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
ED has standards? - Kitsunelaine 「Beware. The foxgirls are coming.」 09:13, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, & kittens. WěǎšěǐǒǐďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 23:32, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
The on-RW nuisance would seem to merit sysoprevoke and a ban. If there's off-site shit-stirring, well, whatever. If there's off-site doxxing activity, permaban and salt the earth. I don't think anyone has been buying Michaeldsuarez's concern trolling act for some time now. Queexchthonic murmurings 11:16, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
Unfortunately, you're one of the users he's been doxxing. AFAIK it's the same stuff as was posted in that thread at that other site. WeaseloidWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 23:32, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
Hm, I was figuring Shouniaisha was Vordrak-related, but a Michaeldsuarez sock sounds far more plausible (one thing Vordrak doesn't have is even an ED level of humour). The account was really obviously set up for this sort of concern trolling and to manufacture a claim against RW - David Gerard (talk) 12:07, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
Oh, I wish that I were that clever, but no, I'm not responsible for creating the "Shouniaisha" account. I've alerted Shouniaisha (now "Ukuphendukela") to your paranoid accusation. --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 13:15, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
Kill him with fire, then. --Castaigne2 (talk) 15:25, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

31.4 yr ban w/ IP ban[edit]

  7. - Kitsunelaine 「Beware. The foxgirls are coming.」 23:10, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

I've given him a permanent ban, consistent with what Arisboch & other editors in the past have got for doxxing RW editors at other sites. WēāŝēīōīďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 23:32, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Just to clarify: to my knowledge Arisboch didn't participate in the doxing. He was "merely" participating supportively with the malicious views of the RW editors who were being doxed, and made absolutely no objections. That is also banworthy.---Mona- (talk) 00:27, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Block Japanese pedophile account too[edit]

  1. I mean really - David Gerard (talk) 19:20, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
  2. I feel like this goes without saying. - Kitsunelaine 「Beware. The foxgirls are coming.」 23:13, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
  3. Another no-brainer.---Mona- (talk) 23:58, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Uh... Why are people associating these two? Yeah, MDS was a prick about Ukuphendukela's former name, but that fits his general concern troll pattern better than a sock pattern. Fuzzy "Cat" Potato, Jr. (talk/stalk) 00:09, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

I am curious about why Mona has changed her tone on this. Correct if I am wrong, but I remember Mona felt sorry for the way people like Uk were treated and found no reason to remove him from this site. Also why is this even being brought, David, mds has been banhammered; has something else happened off site that I don't know about?--Owlman (talk) 00:24, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
That was not and is not my position. Along with Paravant I didn't think someone who stated they had attraction to minors but was inactive and affirmed that acting on it was intolerable, didn't merit banning. As a separate matter I feel empathy for all humans who are beset with compulsions that society properly cannot tolerate.---Mona- (talk) 00:29, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
I believe you on that so why are voting to remove this user from the site; has something else, that I most likely am unaware about, happened that has changed your position on hosting this user on our site?--Owlman (talk) 00:36, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Is it not the case that this user created the account at the direction of others to cause trouble at this wiki? If he actually is what he presented himself as then I'll withdraw my vote. But are there actual users claiming to be pedophiles targeting us? That is what I understand the situation to be. ---Mona- (talk) 00:47, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
No, I think you're misunderstanding some of what I posted above, or maybe I assumed everyone was more familiar with recent events than they actually are. Let me recap:
  • Shouniaisha (now renamed to something else) appeared in November, posted something about being a pedophile on his user page, made some benign edits & then vanished.
  • Meanwhile, the fallout over KotakuInAction & Vordrak's banning & whatever else meant a bunch of Gamergaters angry at RW were looking for things to be outraged about & started pointing at Shouniaisha.
  • Several of these trolls, including Michaeldsuarez, turned up at RW demanding that we ban Shouniaisha (who wasn't even editing at the time).
  • Since we didn't, Michaeldsuarez then posted the suggestion I linked to above in the "how to troll RW" section of ED's RW article ("Use non-English words for the word 'pedophile' as your handle").
Given the timing, I have wondered whether Shouniaisha was a sock created by Gamergaters to manufacture a controversy, but I don't think there's compelling evidence that this is the case, & I doubt that it's Michaeldsuarez specifically. More than likely it's a legitimate user, which makes it shitty to ban them just because of the fuss Gamergate trolls are kicking up. OTOH, tensions tend to run high around the subject of pedophilia, & having an 'out' pedophile around the site may cause more drama than it's worth, whether or not they're a concern troll. The best outcome might be an account block without the usual IP block, so he can make a new account if he wants to & not talk about pedophilia. WeaseloidWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 01:22, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
I would also like to make a point that these people have a long and well-documented history of manufacturing controversy in an effort to slander their opponents. It would be their MO to do something like this. - Kitsunelaine 「Beware. The foxgirls are coming.」 01:25, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
The account in question was clearly created to facilitate concern trolling in a ridiculous attempt to attack the site, and even if the two users in question are not in fact the same people, it should be banned regardless. - Kitsunelaine 「Beware. The foxgirls are coming.」 00:43, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
But why do we now believe this user is being a concern troll by lying about being a pedophile/hebephile in order to create controversy like this. The first time I saw his sexual 'preference' brought up was when two users, one being the now banned mds, who created a coop case; Paravant blocked both these users after one of them harassed this user to kill himself.--Owlman (talk) 00:59, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

RE: Is it not the case that this user created the account at the direction of others to cause trouble at this wiki? and The account in question was clearly created to facilitate concern trolling:

There's no evidence for this. Again, why believe this? Fuzzy "Cat" Potato, Jr. (talk/stalk) 01:06, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

The user has zero contributions to this site outside of talk pages, and despite nobody on-site giving a flying fuck about them, was almost immediately the cause of off-site concern trolling and scorn. The timing of this was also around the height of the events happening towards the end of last year, when we were dealing with a group who loves accusing every one of it's targets of being paedophiles or paedophile defenders. Simply put, it is too convenient. - Kitsunelaine 「Beware. The foxgirls are coming.」 01:08, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Unless I have missed something fundamental, all the evidence is circumstantial. I do appreciate the level of coincidence and this is suspicious. But there is nothing firmer than that right? Equally, I will say that I would not oppose the removal of this user account.--TheroadtoWiganPier (talk) 01:18, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
I might actually oppose the removal of this user if no non-circumstantial evidence is provided. Ironically, Kitsunelaine, you have become paranoid about doxxing from GGers et al. while Ryu admirably, in my eyes, tried to fight such claims on the GG page as non-sequiturs or doxxed info when people attacked various 'anti-GGers' as pedophiles.--Owlman (talk) 01:24, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
There are things you shouldn't expect from people when you don't know them. Poking the beehive of people like this is one of them. My method of dealing with this nowadays is mostly behind the scenes with mod contact. I've done a lot that you don't know about. - Kitsunelaine 「Beware. The foxgirls are coming.」 01:27, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Backchannel lobbying in non-public channels. Exactly like Conservapedia and everything RationalWiki strives not to be. Carpetsmoker (talk) 01:43, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Fuck off, Carpetsmoker. The "Email user" button exists for a reason. You lack the empathy to realise the danger you put other users of this site in, and you mock them for taking reasonable actions to circumvent it. You also only appeared in this thread to sneer at me, something you have done multiple times in cases that had previously been resolved. I would very much appreciate it if you didn't go out of your way to antagonize the userbase and cause any more damage to this site. Otherwise, it'll be you who's on the chopping block next. - Kitsunelaine 「Beware. The foxgirls are coming.」 02:07, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
The only thing I expect in this so called anarcho-syndicalist website which prides itself on "constructive dialogue" and "rational thought" against "authoritarianism" is critical thinking and evidence to support paranoia. Let's not entertain those offsite with the idea that their are "juntas" and "cabals", as MarcusCicero would say, within rationalwiki and that such "SJWs" have infected our moderators.--Owlman (talk) 01:57, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
First, there is nothing wrong with relying on circumstantial evidence provided it is compelling enough. People are convicted, rightly, all the time based on such evidence (and also when the evidence is not remotely strong enough). Second, if it is the case that the deranged GG people are openly advising that people create "pedophile" accounts here, I support banning any claimed pedophile who "just happened" to show up so recently. Among other things, the doxers who are after Goonie, and who attacked me through information about my family, are insanely shrieking that I and basically all editors here "support pedophiles." This bullshit has to end. And now, here we are, giving them more for fodder to discuss me and others. Hence my suggestion -- imploring, really -- that the mods handle this kind of thing in private. ---Mona- (talk) 02:01, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
I am in no way saying that the paranoia is unwarranted or that such doxxing was not serious or harassing, but we should not be, as a community, thrown in disarray where we begin to accuse any new user of being a ED/GG/KIA etc plant when they admit to something these people ridicule. Are we to assume that every new user who admits to being a fetishist, furry, otherkin, non-binary gender, and any various unpopular political ideology is a subversive element working to create offsite drama when the simple answer, in this case, maybe that a ED user who had used rationalwiki found someone who admits to being a pedophile on our doxxed several editors and tried to push this community to ban a user for the lulz?--Owlman (talk) 02:17, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Owlman, I reject your slippery slope reasoning. No one, including me, is proposing that we ban gender or sexual minorities, and I'd strongly oppose that. But pedophiles are beyond mere "festishists." I can't imagine that requires elaboration. Under the current circumstances I do not feel moved to permit posting from users who announce they are pedophiles. If you and others think Uk is prior to the recent issues, and need not be included in the policy I advocate, that I will listen to. But otherwise, no.---Mona- (talk) 03:59, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Well, Mona, even if we don't start bending to offsite pressure to ban certain users they will absolutely harass us to do just that which is why banning this user because of offsite harassment doesn't guarantee that the harassment will not continue or intensify. And I do not consider pedophilia to be a "fetish", but I was referring to those who may talk about their sex lives, e.g. BDSM. Just look at what offsite users were able to do to Goonie and you don't think they will go after David (who has a ED page) like they did with Ryu. People like this want to see us squirm.--Owlman (talk) 04:32, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Owlman, I understand, and even sympathize, with the principle you are articulating. Still, it is very hard for me to believe that users announcing they are, or have a strong interest in, pedophiles at this time suddenly show up is a large coincidence. Moreover, just because we can't remove all cause for harassment, doesn't mean we can't or shouldn't remove what appears to be a pretty obvious one. Recently, someone quickly banned an asshole who signed up with the name "Not a Zionist" purporting to be concerned about Zionists destroying this wiki. That, also, is bullshit. And I support that ban as well.---Mona- (talk) 05:00, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Leave it up to the mods?[edit]

When the problem user is behaving as Weaseloid describes, especially in the first two points, I strongly feel the matter should be handled by the mods in private back channels. Transparency is almost always the right choice, but the operative word there is "almost." In these cases holding a coop case simply feeds the behavior -- both on-site an -off -- and creates yet more possible targets for the malicious actors. Yes, it means accepting the mods' decision without much question, but in my view it's justified. And we elect the mods, presumably considering their judgment when we do---Mona- (talk) 20:45, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

I don't understand why we want to ban user Ukuphendukela. WHY? I see some people complaining that this person claims to be a pedophile. So what? Are we going to ban people because of their sexual attractions that they cannot help having? Shouldn't gays and lesbians be banned too if this is the standard? It doesn't make any sense.
What has this person done that is so egregious? I am looking through this user's contributions page and I don't say anything particularly damning. What's the big deal? What does this have to do with anything? If there is a specific complaint against this user, please make it below. Pbfreespace3 (talk) 02:31, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
This all started with the late 2015 doxxing and the now banned Michaeldsuarez who is apparently an ED user. MDS choose to bring up Uk's previous username in the coop before the doxxing incident occurred and there were accusations that editors here defend pedophiles. Since these events happened so closely together there is an assumption that Uk is a sock who would bring offsite drama and harassment because he is a "self diagnosed" pedophile/hebephile.--Owlman (talk) 02:45, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
I think that there is not enough evidence to convict this person of being a sock. Just because one user decided to throw another user under the bus doesn't mean we have to go along with it. And why is there "an assumption that Uk is a sock who would bring offsite drama and harassment because he is a "self diagnosed" pedophile/hebephile."? Why does that exist? Has this user ever doxxed anyone or brought about any off-site drama? Pbfreespace3 (talk) 02:46, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
It is mostly assumed from some circumstantial evidence which I see as heavily flawed. Another reason for people here to want him removed is the belief that this will relive us of offsite drama as "defending a pedophile" is a perfect scapegoat for our 'moral irreprehensibility'.--Owlman (talk) 02:55, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Just to clarify: my post about what the mods should do outside of public viewing is not about whether we should ban this particular user. My position pertains to Weaseloid's initial setting forth of the coop case, and especially to the first two items in his list. However, given that that similar situation from last month all involved nonsense about pedophiles and the support we here have for them, including especially me (and in my case, also my "anti-Antisemitism"), those victimized by the offsite assholes should not be expected to provide further entertainment and grist for their vicious mill here in the coop. ---Mona- (talk) 03:54, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Sorte/Mona Dispute[edit]

Apparently this belongs here. Most of the parties involved know who they are and already know most of the backstory, but here's a summary: Mona and Sorte got into an edit war on the Noam Chomsky article, which has lasted for over a week. The 2 have reverted each other dozens of times, often with no or a poor explantion. Sorte has repeatedly harrassed Mona by calling her names and egging her on to ban him or fight with him (trolling).

The purpose of this particular case is to bring about a decision which stops the bad behavior of Sorte Slyngel. Evidence of this is all over the Saloon Bar and both Mona's and Sorte's talk pages. Sorte has been a real trouble-maker, at the expense of the community and the wiki. He has been unusually fixated on Mona for weeks. His dozens of reverts and his constant badgering of Mona (and to a lesser extent myself) have done nothing but hurt the community, diverting attention away from more important things and towards a petty conflict over Noam Chomsky.

A quote by one side[edit]

One side in this "debate" has said "He's an utter asshole who needs to be gone.". Please let that sink in for a second before you exclusively blame one side, or are about to do Mona's bidding... (talk) 01:18, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Whose sock are you? How are things at Kiwi Farms these days?---Mona- (talk) 01:53, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
Mona has had to deal with almost 2 weeks of vicious arguing with this person. It's understandable that both of them hate each other. Trying to impugne someone's credibility by saying "they called someone else an asshole" is not going to work. Pbfreespace3 (talk) 01:23, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
In the Saloon I set forth a long litany of abuse and bad faith spewing from Sorte Slyngel. Starting here. All of that pretty much pertains to his commentary at the Noam Chomsky article, but there is so much more that precedes it. But I wasn't going to write an entire treatise. But Pbfreespace3, I expect many to say none of this misbehavior violates the rules. If I thought otherwise I would have done this long ago. If a mod(s) won't step in to stop this, and stop all the banned/binned socks and KWF BoNs, and the few accounts they've registered for, nothing can be done. The problem has been the lack of rules to prevent obnoxious, bad faith users from polluting the wiki and driving valuable editors out. These types of users made Paravant so miserable he eventually became harmed by it all. He did prohibit calling pro-Palestinian editors "antisemties" as well as some other of the more vicious name-calling, but he's gone. No one stops that any longer.---Mona- (talk) 01:48, 27 January 2016 (UTC)


I ask that the mods/community agree to vandal-bin him or ban him temporarily if he reverts anything of Mona's on Israel/Palestine or Chomsky, or if he argues with Mona at all. This will stop his ability to cause general riff-raff and end the conflict on the Chomsky page. This fight has raged on the pages for too long; it is time it is brought here to end this dispute once and for all. Pbfreespace3 (talk) 01:14, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

I spent part of December very upset at what they were doing regarding my family, and now they are just allowed to romp around here and spew shit at and about me.

    They appear now more and more because of events last month, involving Gamergate, but which also included me and charges of antisemtism. They were fucking invited here. And now, they watch and play games to see what trouble they can start here, with a focus on me. No mod cares to do a thing about it. They can harass me, target my edits -- including helping out Sorte, as much as they like. No one gives a shit.---Mona- (talk) 01:08, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

    Other have had it. For all his faults, Ryu deserved and was given protection from trolls. Kitsunlaine also has reason to not want all the BoN's coming here now. But at the moment they are most interested in targeting me. (Their good pal, the banned Arisboch, has announced he's be doing socks.) Of course that doesn't conern a thing like you. I'm talking to the people with normal moral development.---Mona- (talk) 02:20, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
    If Ryu had it, he shouldn't have. I won't let people have special protections. Unless we ALL get them. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. All I request is that all users be treated absolutely equally. --Castaigne2 (talk) 02:30, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
    Absolutely. No one should be afforded "special" protections. R's case is a difficult one to use as comparison, because of the utterly toxic nature of the issue he was narrow focused on. --Cosmikdebris (talk) 02:34, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
    No one should be subject to abuse on this wiki to the extent that's been demonstrated in this case. I don't see this case as narrow focused on Mona, but more on the nature and character of the site in general. --Cosmikdebris (talk) 02:27, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
    Depends on what you would call abuse, which is a purely subjective item. I could claim to being abused by Mona using her definition, but I wouldn't. --Castaigne2 (talk) 02:30, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

  1. No. This is written above by Pbfreespace3: „...ban him temporarily if he reverts anything of Mona's on Israel/Palestine or Chomsky, or if he argues with Mona at all. Argues with Mona at all? My dear fellow, it is nearly impossible to browse RW and not come across Mona and it very unlikely that you will agree with her. Of course you agree with her, but it seems you have not studied history. And why are we having this discussion here? Simply because Mona thew a tantrum and had a nervous breakdown. Or so she said. Pb I don't know long you have been here, but you do seem to have to learn the rules. For instance when you blocked me for not calling Mona — well whatever. That can be dug up. It's interesting how many people make their light shine here, but have apparently never had anything to do with me. As is, ask FuzzyCatPotato and he will confirm that I have promised a three weeks Chomsky silence. Cheers to all the benevolent souls assembled here Sorte Slyngel (talk) 03:58, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

This one told me right after I joined that most people here love Israel and none of my edits would stand unless I too "think Israel is great." Well, I don't think that, and my position tends to be the majority here, so I get called all kinds of things by these types, including a "nutjob" who should "pal around with some fucking terrorists."

    Mona, if you are so convinced about the nastiness of Zionists, I advise you to spend some time with their opponents. And I don't mean those you might find in a Boston Starbucks. No I mean the sheikhs of Qatar or some other place. But please, before you go there say something to the effect that you are atheist / gay / divorced or something to that effect. And as for GGers, I don't even know what that is supposed to be. Nor do I care. (talk) 05:40, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
    Accepted. But please realize that it isn't even just that you insult me; it's that this wiki has a toxic atmosphere because of things like that. That kind of behavior is why TheRoadtoWiganPier just called it quits here. As I just posted about below. I'm not the problem. I don't behave like you do, or Sorte does, or Avenger and Arisboch did, and also Castaigne. I do aggressively defend my edits with facts and documentation, but I accept it when I'm outvoted -- which is rather infrequent. That I'm right so often is a by-product of sticking to what I know. That causes people like you, Castaigne etc. to say I'm arrogant and to think I'm superior etc. No. It is simply that in the rather narrow range of my editing interests I tend to have an almost encyclopedic knowledge. Outside of those areas, I'm a schlub.---Mona- (talk) 13:23, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

    Please do not act as if you don't deliberately provoke people. You do. You are nastier than me towards anyone you disagree with. I don't care how old you are. I don't care what degrees you have.

I don't care that you worked with and are best buds with that hack attorney Greenwald, who likes to perform lawfare against those he personally doesn't like.You are neither dictator here, nor a mod, nor a setter of policy, and I and several others will not be ordered about by you as if we were some damn lapdog groveling at your feet.

    I see. Well, while I'm busy destroying the wiki, the subject of this coop case just did this: (Block log); 04:43 . .

    The proposition is to enact an order whereby if the user Sorte Slyngel edits any article related to the user Mona, Israel/Palestine, or Noam Chomsky articles, he is either banned for a short period (a few hours/days) or "vandal-binned", which means limited to one edit per 30 minutes.

    I still get a vote, right? There should not be a punishment. Or at the very least it should not be one-sided. If you watch Mona in this very coop case, she definitely deserves some punishment. Least of all for threatening to fill this wiki with her meatpuppets Pizzameister (talk) 03:27, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
    As of this time, until the mods have made a policy-wide decision, yes, your vote is still here.
    As for punishment, that would also be up to the mods. --Castaigne2 (talk) 03:29, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
    Sorry. Mods have decided; you get no vote. --Castaigne2 (talk) 00:38, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
  3. Banned for being mean and disagreeing with the RationalWiki consensus. Nah. BTW this page is now impossible to follow; I had to dig around just to determine who we were voting on and why. Mona you are a good editor, and I largely agree with your I-P positions. However, the wiki must have dialectic conversation, if you can't handle disagreement then the internet is not the place for you. Tielec01 (talk) 02:52, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
  4. ^^^^What Tielec said. Though I agree that Mona seems to have the long end of the stick on the factual matter (Sorte's rancour at Chomsky seems rather excessive and, his politics aside, Chomsky is actually regarded as a legitimate authority on linguistics - as far as I know). Sorte should probably also tone down the perfidy, but it would also be nice if Mona didn't go into hedgehog-mode when challenged, especially when questions are directed at her "icons" (e.g. Chomsky or Greenwald). The idea that Sorte should get a ban "if he argues with Mona at all" is frankly ludicrous, but a short term warning block(say, up to a few hours to basically send a "chill out" message) to call attention to his bad behaviour (excessively edit warring and perfidious bickering) might be in order, though this coop case might have had that effect already. Finally, I don't like the suggestions that moderators should be stepping in more as I perceive the mods' role as being an "emergency brake" and so far events haven't merited an emergency stop. ScepticWombat (talk) 08:21, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Yes, if Mona is punished too[edit]

  1. She has repeatedly insulted other members, de-sysoped others without reason, edit warred, locked pages to get her way. She's almost as bad as Sorte. CorruptUser (talk) 01:56, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
    You are not wrong, but Mona's frustration is understandable. It would be hypocritical of me to not extend her the same good faith I extended Ryulong in very similar circumstances. She is stressed out and exhausted for very personal reasons. Cut her some slack. - Kitsunelaine 「Beware. The foxgirls are coming.」 01:58, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
    That's bullshit [in answer to CorruptUser]. I very seldom insult people. And nothing rising to the level of Sorte's abuse. I had reason for de-mopping ppl, The last time was an accident. And it was all long ago. I have NEVER locked a page to get my way. AgingHippie locked the page; I merely extended it, and tried to keep these Avenger/Arisboch/Kiwi Farm asshats who have HARMED ME out of my article discussions. Jesus. You did not go through from them what I did.---Mona- (talk) 02:01, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
    I do believe that " Avenger/Arisboch/Kiwi Farm asshats" is intended as an insult, one you have used repeatedly throughout this page. Also, "my article discussions" is a concept that does not exist. ħumanUser talk:Human 19:20, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
    You never rose to my level because you can't see the funny side of things. That is why concepts like self-deprecation, mild jokes, understatements, overstatements allegories and so forth are out of your reach. Those are the professional writer's tools of trade among others, which makes me wonder why you call yourself a writer. You do know that there is a thing called allusion, but I've never seen you getting that right. Sorte Slyngel (talk) 04:56, 27 January 2016 (UTC)Cheers
  2. --Castaigne2 (talk) 00:44, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
  3. I'm not sure I'd word it as a "punishment," but maybe it would be a good idea from all parties involved to take a break from the aforementioned articles. I'm not entirely sure if this is more about Mona or the articles, but maybe Mona taking a two week break from those articles might allow things to calm down a tad. I agree with binning Sorte, at least temporarily, perhaps permanently if s/he doesn't cool down after a ban period. AyzmoCheers 15:15, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
    It's about me only insofar as Sorte stalks the articles I edit (and my user talk page) and spews abusive insults and has said he won't accept any documentation from me. I don't behave like that and it would not be right to bar me from the articles that are my major interest (but are not his, and he knows much less about it than I do -- he just doesn't like my POV) because he's been abusive and grossly unreasonable where I am concerned. I really wonder about your vote given that you appear to accept you don't even understand what the issues are.---Mona- (talk) 16:04, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
    Honestly, I don't feel I have much of hand in this game other than that it has caused a massive amount of chaos on here and, quite frankly, made Rationalwiki rather unbearable. I've been here for at least 4(?) years and haven't seen anything that has caused this much disruption. If nothing else that gives me a right to vote, regardless of how involved I have been (my comment about uncertainty meant I wasn't sure if Sorte would follow you if you started focusing on beeswax rather than Zionism/Chomsky for example). As I've said, I don't see it as a punishment. I'd see it as giving a break to the entire situation (in addition to blocking Sorte). I agree that Sorte has been unreasonable, I don't argue that in the least. I find it odd that you question my right to vote on the matter simply because I provided an alternative viewpoint. I'm sure several "yes" votes were just as uninvolved as me and I don't see you questioning their votes. AyzmoCheers 19:18, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
    I didn't question your right to vote. I questioned the vote itself. Whether you change the wording for yourself or not, you are voting under a section that says I am also to be "punished." I haven't done anything to be punished for. The coop isn't a place we go to tell people to take a break because we think it would be good for them. There are currently about half a dozen people editing the Chomsky article and a major copy-edit is going on; I've had no serious problems with any of the others. The problem ends with Sorte. We have a vote going on a link embed, and if I lose that vote, the majority wins. I know a lot about Noam Chomsky's writings and politics; why should I should I be barred as a "punishment" from an article Sorte targeted only because I was there? (I'm waiting for a friend I worked with to get me citations to pre-Internet rightwing slams of Chomsky, which is somewhere on an old computer.) That's what I meant about your vote-- not that you don't have a right to vote, but that you are voting for me to also be punished when I have not done anything wrong, especially at that article.---Mona- (talk) 20:00, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Ban everybody? (Note, this was not a serious proposal). But seriously, there appears to be more to the problem than what is happening right now... However. I don't think the solution should be banning or binning, because ultimately the side that does not dislike Zionism has to be heard as well. Because ultimately banning one side of a dispute (even if that side is in the minority) ends up diminishing the user-base. And no wiki can survive that in the long term.

Final Consensus?[edit]

So far, we've got 9 straight yeses, 2 straight nos, and 3 yeses-with-provisions for Mona. Excluding the last, there is already a great majority, and a two-thirds majority is all that is needed for a consensus to be reached.

Last nite I thought it too soon. But it's not likely the strong majority would be overcome in another day. So, yes. We have voted that: "Sorte Slyngel will be vandal-binned or banned temporarily if he reverts anything of Mona's on Israel/Palestine or Chomsky, or if he argues with Mona at all." I suggest that include any article Mona edits, or he'll pick some part of an I-P article I technically didn't write and try to cause trouble that way. Then I revert him, he says "But she reverted me!" knowing I would. So to keep it simple, it should just be any I-P article I edit, before or after he does -- in addition to not arguing with me about edits anywhere. (I'm not going to care a shit about most of his other interests, which appear to be pretty diverse and with almost no overlap with my own.)---Mona- (talk) 02:29, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Looks like there's consensus. He's ordered to leave Mona alone and stay away from I-P and related articles, under penalty of banishment. Do we sysoprevoke at this time? CorruptUser (talk) 02:19, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

This is apparently much of a problem. I gave FuzzyCat my word last night, that I would accept his breathing period and mentioned the day, when I could consider that I had anything more? Didn't think so.
Now, for a funny ending, I dare anyone to convince Mona that she is not only a trivial example of Homo sapiens — or Mulier sapiens to please her — and also get her to admitting that she isn't always right — or if you really want to take a huge risk that she's usually wrong on most things. Cheers Sorte Slyngel (talk) 02:31, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
Sure. I was wrong about a rape trial in Israel. CorruptUser had the most recent facts, of which I had been unaware. Also, early in my tenure here I edited at the PETA article. My position was wrong because I had not kept up with PETA outside of the context of civil libertarian concerns about animal rights activists. After that, I determined to stay well within topics and areas in which I am confident of my facts. That's a good idea for everybody.---Mona- (talk) 02:36, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Consensus is not reached after mere hours[edit]

Now I have absolutely no skin in the game here, the only thing I would want to have is more, and above all, more civilised debate, but does this wiki really consider consensus to have emerged after but a few hours? I do think we should debate a bit longer. As of now I have not heard any arguments that have convinced me of the utter vileness of the accused. Pizzameister (talk) 02:40, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

The community has seen this whole thing play out over the past weeks, whether they have been vocal about it or not.

  1. this is a major policy decision that, if enacted here, will need to be considered in everyvoting action - site wide. Therefor Mods rule or GTFO. Acei9 03:18, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
    And what part of "We welcome new editors" do you fucks not understand? People can edit wherever they see fit. If it is voting on a Coop case then so be it...until such a time as policy is changed. Acei9 03:19, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
    You're wrong here: http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/RationalWiki:Community_Standards#Voting This clearly states that users must have at least 75 total edits to vote on a penalty for a user. That means Pizzameister cannot vote here. Pbfreespace3 (talk) 03:21, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

And another one goes: TheRoadtoWiganPier[edit]

He can't take the bullshit here -- and he most decidedly does not mean me. He had told me early after my arrival here that the mods will do absolutely nothing about abusive and harassing users and that the site was falling to the level of the worst of any of the Internet cesspools because of what is permitted here. So, he just quit. I should add, he also reverted Sorte Slyngel with some frequency and found Sorte's treatment of me "unpleasant." He also used the word "stalking." I'm hoping he won't mind if I quote just short bit of his email to me:

RW is not salvageable and not worth the effort Mona. It’s an unpleasant place and not one I wish to be associated with in any [way] for any longer.

I could compile a list of the good people, including mods, we've seen fleeing this place since last fall.The community has to decide whether circumstances will be allowed to continue such that hard workers, including tech-savvy ones the site could use, are to continue to be driven out so that nasty users can romp and stomp as they please.---Mona- (talk) 13:11, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Users join & leave all the time. We don't need to wring our hands & declare a state of emergency every time it happens. & You're lumping together together people who have left for rather different reasons. ŴêâŝêîôîďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 13:53, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
I don't think so. The "state of emergency" isn't that. It's an ongoing state around here. I've heard similar from other editors by email, that they aren't going to participate as much, and will avoid the topics that attract the worst assholes, which means GG and I-P. Except for Castaigne; he will abuse the hell out of anyone just for shits and grins, as he did with Carpetsmoker, which drove CS out. And I am also close to just saying fuck it. This place is a toxic pit where people at the level of youtube-commenters can join up and spew bilge as they like. Just so long as they don't edit war or violate the other minimal rules here. They are free to make the experience here massively unpleasant for others, and they do.---Mona- (talk) 14:02, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
This is a bit rich coming from you considering your history. CorruptUser (talk) 14:39, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
Non sequitur. Talk page disagreements about my documentation of McKinney proves, what? I didn't spew insults at anyone. As is usual for me, I simply insisted on documentation for claims about people. Whether she is deemed a "loon" or not, the things this wiki writes about her should be accurate and honest. In any event, I fail to see how any of this is relevant to this discussion.---Mona- (talk) 15:01, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
You didn't document crap. You pulled some weird source declaring that Bush knew about 911 in advance or something, and both roadtowiganpar and paravant told you to, and I quote, either "shit-bag on some other site" or "fuck right off". And now you are here complaining that these two have been "driven off of rational wiki". And the worst part is your ego is too malformed to see it. CorruptUser (talk) 15:07, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
We've been through this before. I DOCUMENTED all of my claims. And TRWP and others eventually came to see that I could. In any event, both emailed me about their reasons for leaving, somewhat extensively. (We ended up friends) It's not me. It's what I said.---Mona- (talk) 15:50, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
Adding: I did just read that whole thing. I'd been here for three weeks at that point. It wasn't much longer after that that TRWP and Paravant both realized I really do mean it about documentation. If you can provide a credible source for Proposition X (and it's relevant), and it's not contested by reasonable other sources, it stands as fact. And, if I can document a relevant fact with a reliable source, that should stand as well. That's my approach, on everything. It took some time for people here to get used to me and see that I am in fact totally evidence-based. Once they did, all was well with the reasonable people. Including TRWP and Paravant, with whom I ended up friends. ---Mona- (talk) 15:59, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Her first edit was on August 13, 2015. (talk) 19:08, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
And the problems started when, you said? Pizzameister (talk) 19:15, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
Actually the I-P discussions started when an extremely pro-Israel BoN started posting videos as their only refs and purporting human rights abuses as acceptable.--Owlman (talk) 22:34, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
Yes Owlman, that one became Avenger, and with his pal Arisboch and a few others, they were gatekeeping all the I-P related articles. They announced no edits that I wanted would stand. That was bullshit, and I made it my business to break through it and found that a majority was of my POV (more or less). They never got over that.---Mona- (talk) 22:53, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
Dear Arisboch/Avenger-sock-who-also-posts-here-as-a-BoN, there have long been extensive problems here related to Gamergate articles. All kinds of shitfests. You already know that. You also already know that the Israel-Palestine topic was always touchy here (as it is everywhere), and that when I joined, Avenger and Arisboch told me point blank they would not allow to stand any edits they didn't like. Ever. But you see, it turned out that when I pressed ahead anyway, there was a (more or less) majority for my perspective. You both hated that with the heat of a thousand suns, and proceeded to get yourselves, blocked, binned and one of you is now perma-banned, the other perma-binned. Both of you exhibited great hubris in arrogating the authority to tell me and the wiki what could and could not be said about anything I-P related. And here you are still, having learned nothing.---Mona- (talk) 20:35, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
Mona I don't even know what you are on about. It appears as if you are trying to bully / harass / intimidate / block other users so far until they disappear from "your" precious wiki. Well, Mona, I don't know what those users ever did to you, but maybe, just maybe, you should ask yourself what your part in all that was. Trust me in this: The world is not out to get you. Nor is it out to get me. Pizzameister (talk) 21:15, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
I guess you wish to pretend that FR history isn't there. You got your accounts confused and posted one when you meant to use the other. The "other" initially asked why "your" vote wasn't being counted; you quickly changed it to "you" asking the same question. Can you explain that?---Mona- (talk) 21:33, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

We have socks of banned/binned user with multiple accounts[edit]

Pizzameister sought to vote in the coop but was deemed ineligible. He knows all about what is going on in that coop case, and the parties involved. But when his vote was stricken, he made the mistake of asking why "my vote" was stricken -- using a BoN account also participating here, http://rationalwiki.org/w/index.php?title=RationalWiki:Chicken_coop&diff=1614945&oldid=1614943 A mistake he tried to quickly change.
Isn't it time for the everyone, including the mods, to conclude that all these new accounts who head right for articles or coop cases where I am involved are obviously Arisboch, Avenger, or some of those Kiwi Farm derelicts whom Arisboch ranted with about my purported antisemtism? How likely is it that good faith new accounts are going to jump right into a coop case and/or articles pertaining to I-P where I am active? I've been a victim of extreme harassment from these people and should not have to endure them coming back after me here. That episode last December was deeply upsetting for me, badly. They, including Arisboch, were pushing all this vile crap about me in the context of publishing my sons's phone number, and those of his neighbors. They instructed all to call my son and his neighbors to tell them vicious things about me.
Please mods, get control of this situation. You can't possibly want this place to be inundated with all these bogus accounts, which in great likelihood are circumventing ban or perma-bin, or are coming from KWF as pals of Arisboch's.---Mona- (talk) 22:20, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Looks like standard issue accidental editing when logged out. Hipocrite (talk) 22:49, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
It also looks like a bunch of socks all signing up to head where I edit, and to coop cases pertaining to me. Why do you suppose that is? There is no way I should be expected to put up with a bunch of Arisbochs/Avengers, or their Kiwi Farm pals heading right for me, after what was done to me -- involving my fucking family -- last month.---Mona- (talk) 22:57, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
What % accuracy do you believe you have in this sock-of-banned-user spotting, and what % accuracy would be acceptable for you to be blocking them? I know for a fact you are wrong in one instance. Hipocrite (talk) 22:59, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
I would say the fact that there have been multiple accounts/IPs created here in the past 24 hours since this coop case started indicates there is at least a 50% chance each new user is a sockpuppet: they have almost all flocked to Mona or this coop case with no logical explanation whatsoever other than "to participate"(pizzameister). I would say that in a sensitive coop case such as this, we should not allow brand new people to participate; we should only allow prior community members who are affected by this case to take part. When there are already several essentially-known sock IPs, this further raises the likelihood of someone being a sockmaster who has diabolical intentions (Avenger or Arisboch) Pbfreespace3 (talk) 23:06, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
That's fine. Talking about blocking them for 3.6 months and what not. Seems to be a bit excessive to basically x out possible editors with a 50% false positive rate. Hipocrite (talk) 23:07, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
How about 1 day? Or until the coop case is over? How about we don't block them but prevent them from editing the coop case? Would you be willing to accept any of these proposals, Hipocrite? Pbfreespace3 (talk) 23:10, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
I'd vote for "just ignore them," but semiing this page would work, as would segregating their contributions, or just making note of Template:Spas. Hipocrite (talk) 23:11, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
Then where there is 50% likelihood, when they show up where I edit tell them they have to stay away from any I-P pages during their probationary period. Explain it however one wants. Otherwise, there is every incentive for them to continue making new accounts to bypass banning and/or harass.---Mona- (talk) 23:12, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
I asked you what your false-positive sock detection rate was and asserted that I know for a fact you got at least one totally wrong. Hipocrite (talk) 23:13, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
Will you at least accept that no accounts or IPs created after the start of this coop case should be allowed to participate in any aspect of it? I'm sure Mona would be willing to accept this as a temporary measure to prevent voter fraud, which appears to be occuring here. Pbfreespace3 (talk) 23:15, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Mods are not here to Gestapo for you, Mother Mona Superior.
Fix it how? By unblocking Pizzameister? An account that the user admits was created due to the coop case being opened, for the purpose of voting in the coop case? "Now I have absolutely no skin in the game here"-Pizzameister "This ridiculous coop case is one of the things that have made me sign up for an account."-Pizzameister

You know the word "trigger?" That's what happens to me when these fuckers show up, just by happenstance doncha know, to argue with other Zionists against me. All of a sudden there's quite a few.

Please don't make trigger warning jokes here - it's totally insensitive to victims of PTSD.

Hipocrite (talk) 23:20, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
It's not a fucking joke. I have PTSD regarding the death of a teen child, and those shitheads sought to harass my son and his neighbors. But I guess expecting to be protected from targeting by such cretins is more than the mods or anyone here can think about, much less do. But even without my issues about kids dying, no one should have to be subjected to these bottom-feeding assholes.---Mona- (talk) 01:24, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
A joke? Listen freak, I lost a teen son in an accident, and now your freak friends were after my other son, and his neighbors. And it made me have a mini-meltdown. One does not anticipate THAT from participating at a goddam wiki. Worse, one expects her colleagues aren't going to make her deal with the socks of her abusers. Jesus Christ, some fucking joke. The joke here is the "mods."---Mona- (talk) 01:41, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
If you have a mental condition that makes normal editing on a mostly unmoderated wiki/forum a problem, then you really need to a) seek help for this issue and b) not subject yourself to this situation. I say this in all seriousness.
Secondly, it is not the problem of RationalWiki to make a "safe space" to cater to you. We're not a mental wellness facility; we are not psychiatrists.

We'll have to disagree on should. That which is not absolutely forbidden is absolutely permitted. If you think that should be changed, I recommend a policy suggestion to the mods. --Castaigne2 (talk) 02:26, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
Castaigne: She's right, her personal life shouldn't be involved here.

"It" is posting at talk pages where I edit. :"It" made a beeline for a coop case involving my main Zionist protagonist. This is it. A fucking moderator -- A MODERATOR -- invited these cretins to pay attention ot us and me. And now, with one of their supporters here banned, no one gives a shit if they can make as as many new accounts as they like and target me. Fuck most of you.---Mona- (talk) 23:50, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
"It" has that right as an editor. Unless you can make a successful coop case for banning. --Castaigne2 (talk) 01:29, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
Mona, heed my advice... Anyway, I think she means that Pizzameister has been posting on the Chomsky talk page, which Mona edits a lot. I think what Mona is calling for is a temporary ban, but I could be wrong with my interpretation. I would like that disciplinary action be taken against Pizzameister too. It could be a sockpuppet, since it has an unusual fixation on everything Mona. We know there have been several other sockpuppets over the past few days that have had to be blocked. Seeing as this one came here for the original purpose of voting in a Mona-related coop case, I think it's a sockpuppet, and that it should be banned for the duration of the coop case, or at least a day. Pbfreespace3 (talk) 23:56, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
ADDING: People won't even let me page protect. It should be at sysop=level where I edit or talk about the articles. (Same should be done for Kitunlaine, for similar reaons.)THAT would disincentivize them from making accounts to come here and do that shit. But no. RW has traditions and even to protect a moderator-generated harassment of me involving my kids, and a fucking so-called "banned" user, I can't do anything to keep these pricks away from me.---Mona- (talk) 23:59, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

It should fucking NOT be protected where you edit. You are no better than anyone else here. You do not get special privileges no else has. --Castaigne2 (talk) 01:29, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
I added my two cents to the talk page of that Chomsky guy because he popped up in recent changes a lot. I probably would have done the same about pretty much every other topic. I don't have anything against Mona nor anybody else here. And for what it's worth I think the overlap between Zionists and this other group (whatever it is) is rather small. Pizzameister (talk) 00:10, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

I'd like to reiterate what Castaigne mentioned above: it is not the problem of RationalWiki to make a "safe space" to cater to you. This is an open wiki that invites people who disagree with "us" to join in the discussion. That means that all manner of people one has difficulty with are likely to turn up and get in one's face. If one cannot handle such an environment, there are plenty of "safe spaces" on the internet, with varying degrees of member protection operating. This is not one of them.

This is why blocking, banning, hatred of drive-by BoNs, and worrying about sockpuppets are severely frowned upon.

I am not sure exactly how to express this, but I am only reading this page because of various mod alerts. Otherwise I would either ignore it or get out the popcorn.

So take my opinion as being from where it is probably coming. ħumanUser talk:Human 19:17, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

    If it applies to more than one person, it's not a FUCKING COOP, Mona. Coop = ONE. Policy = MORE THAN ONE. Simple fucking math.

    Castaigne, do you realize that for days now you've been taking every opportunity to add stress and rancor, as well as bad faith bullshit about what is supposedly only a the mods turf -- anything that will cause me further stress and anxiety. Why do you behave like this? I simply do not deserve it. I went thru enough last month. All I'm doing is going to the community -- my community -- to seek relief. Can't you please, please just leave me alone? (We've done more than one person at the coop before. WE still are, in the Sorte case, one option is to include me in "punishment.")---Mona- (talk) 03:53, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
    No, I'm doing this in good faith. If another editor made the same exact actions as you, I'd fucking do the goddamn same. I'm just sick of your martyring attitude, your wikilawyering, and your assumption that you are somehow due special consideration because of whatever reason you decide is valid at the moment. You are not a special snowflake and I will not treat you as one. You get the same as everyone else who does what you do.
    Let me be clear - I do this in good faith and with a clear conscience. If a relative of mine were acting like you have been, they would already be sedated and under a 3-day observation in a psych ward. I get that you're probably mad with grief over whatever, but that cuts no slack with me. --Castaigne2 (talk) 03:59, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Okay, I know you're fed up with these three (you're not the only ones), but seriously, a week's ban? So far it's merely a case of the usual RW bickering although the level of tediousness has gone above average. If the three editors keep up their feud, then yes, we might consider grounding them, but I hope they'll take the very fact that this suggestion has been raised as the warning it is and chill out for a while.

    Some of you think this is funny? I'm weeping. This is just too much. People abused me, involving my family, due to a moderator inviting them here. And you think locking me in a room with more abusers is funny? I've done nothing to deserve this. Sorte has been vicious toward me, as has Castaigne. Anyone with two IQ points knows this sudden uptick in BoNs, who are heading straight for the articles I edit -- and a coop case touching on me -- is not an accident.
    AgingHippie had to page-protect the Chomsky article to keep them out. Is he paranoid as well? Really, this is affecting my mental health. I can't believe the coldness here. Even joking about it. Goddam.
    If I'm banned for a week, I'm canceling my account and leaving. I have done nothing wrong and will not tolerate a record here that I had to be banned. I'm the victim here, and if the mods had seen fit to intervene the many times they were absent, none of these coop cases would have had to exist. I begged them to do something. I didn't bring the coop case precisely becasue of what has happened; now I get more abuse here.
    If a mod had acted, Castiagne wouldn't have been constantly reverting me here, including collapsing my comments, and me not knowing how to revert his collapses without taking whatever comments he'd made. I told him to restore his comments, but to stop collasping my comments. Where was a mod? This is just all just sick victim-blaming. And the result of mods doing next to nothing.---Mona- (talk) 17:08, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
    Ok, Christ, for the record, my comment was of confusion, and an observation about the current state of the COOP page. I don't find this funny; I don't think I've ever even visited an Israel/Palestine-related article on RW, much less seen what's been going on in the edits/talk pages or heard of harassment towards family members. All I know is that some 12,000 words/70,000 characters worth of new COOP, including multiple votes that people are claiming have already been decided at least in part by users who've either only been created in the recent past or have been practically absent from the Wiki in the past several years, and regarding a topic that had been of issue in previous COOP cases that I had decided not to get involved with, has abruptly popped up seemingly overnight.

Putting this behind us[edit]

Following discussion & vote on Sorte Slyngel, I've posted some basic guidelines on his user talk page to avoid edit wars over & further conflict with Mona on the understanding that he may be vandal binned or blocked temporarily if he doesn't comply.

I suggest we close & archive the rest of this PDQ. The proposal about sysop-blocking a whole bunch of talk pages has only one vote in favour & no hope in hell of passing. The vote about blocking Mona & Castaigne is an acrimonious time-waster that's just exacerbating tensions. WéáśéĺóíďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 18:03, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Whatever this means: "I do think this does not mean Mona can blithely continue as if nothing happened." I assure you I have not been continuing as if I was not harassed by a banned user (Arisboch) and anotherAvenger, who was perma-binned, so left) and now a third (SorteSlyngel) who has been somewhat reined in. Nor have I exactly been continuing as if the foul cretins at another site (with Arisboch's encouragement) didn't publish my kids' contact info and ask everyone to call their neighbors, and them, and tell them I'm a a "pedo-supporter" and "anti-semite." Trust me, I'm not blithely ignoring any of that. BTW, there's nothing stopping us from insulting non-users here in the coop.---Mona- (talk) 19:38, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

We as in "we the people", i.e. the collective sentencing authority behind this decision.

I don't think we should have topic bans at all. They always lead to arguments about what's covered and not covered, then revising the scope of the ban to cover something we thought maybe should have been covered initially, and on an on. Unnecessary blathering. If someone's a net positive we keep them, if not, block or throw 'em in the vandal bin. Easy. – Sarah (HH) 18:52, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Mona, first: sorry for what you've been going through. Second: if we have editors violating basic policies or standards of behavior we should outright ban them.

Sorte's already announced he will not abide by decision[edit]

Weaseloid, as mod, explained the decision to Sorte and the compliance that is required. This is Sorte's answer:

Adhering to RW's guidelines is absolutely commendable and recommendable. But being subjected to what amounts to effectively Mona's censorship is not acceptable and I will not bow to that. This will not be a problem for a while. But when the time is up, I have the right to do what I mentioned above. If not, then RW is useless. If you want to kick me out right away. I did say „Come what may“ in my comment on my last Chomsky-edit. But that was not the full comment. If anyone is interested, it's there to see. In the meanwhile, biding my time. Cheers Sorte Slyngel (talk) 19:37, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Before the coop case, he violated mod FCP's instructions not to edit Chomsky, and ran right there, and edited Chomsky, saying: "Come what may." He's already announced he will also not accept the authority of mod Weaseloid, and the community via the coop. This is how unreasonable he is.---Mona- (talk) 19:47, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Endnote to this recent whatchamacallit[edit]

Relevant action has been taken. If Sorte wants to disregard Weaseloid's guidelines they are free to do so and face the consequences.

If we're all banned, I'll never have a chance to bash my keyboard until everyone agrees with me! But at the same time, what if rpeh disagrees with me, and is therefore 100% wrong?
