I highly doubt the above "Real Davide Piffer" is actually Davide Piffer, but an impersonator, alongside most the other accounts with silly names. The same troll also appears to have impersonated both RationalP and me (Zeros), but adding a "2" to their names - unless the second RationalP is actually a sock of RationalP (I could have been mistaken above), this is all certainly a mess.Zeros (talk) 15:58, 2 December 2017 (UTC)

The individual I suspect doing this also has impersonated Emil Kirkegaard and John Fuerst on RationalWiki before, as well as on Wikipedia, e.g. the user: "Emil Kirkegaard" has been blocked as a sockpuppet of someone else and if you google that name it is blocked under at Wikipedia - you find a long history of trolling and online disruption. An admin from Wikipedia, Doug Weller and a RationalWiki sysop also have noted that this same person impersonated another user named "Maunus" (the blocked impersonator account) while also trying to create an attack article on him, that was deleted. I finally suspect "RaceRealist" a blogger, has been impersonated by the same troubled individual; see this comment on RR's blog that seems to confirm this. Note the impersonator as "RaceRealist88" edited Davide Piffer's article, although it has now been blocked. It is also claimed the person who created Piffer's & RaceRealist's articles was the same user impersonating an ANTIFA user here; I don't know about the latter, but the evidence almost certainly suggests it this person impersonating users here linked to OpenPsych (Piffer, Kirkegaard) since he's been blocked doing it on Wikipedia. I discovered this same person has been banned from the OpenPsych forum, so this might be his key motivation? Zeros (talk) 16:05, 2 December 2017 (UTC)
Great, the community on this Wiki is a bunch of socks. Admins (@CheeseburgerFace, @RoninMacbeth) should be called and informed about this suspects, use some tool to block them and their IPs, as well accordingly remove and censure their edits.--RationalP (talk) 10:18, 7 December 2017 (UTC)
They're all now blocked. The same troll [Talk:Steve_Sailer#Hey.2C_um.E2.80.A6 apparently created] the Steve Sailer article that reads as satire and has a ridiculous intro, as well as created an article on the hereditarianism/racialist pseudo-scientist blogger JayMan; he's been fooling around here for years; JayMan's article was deleted because it was so poor quality. The account that created all these was a mock account of an "SJW",[P Moxie14]. And this same troll on twitter seems to impersonate an alt right/neo-Nazi calling himself a "Racist Fascist Anti-Semitic Islamophobic Extremist Hate Tweeter". Clearly someone with mental issues. 21:33, 7 December 2017 (UTC) — Unsigned, by: Zeros / talk / contribs
This is Oliver. (talk) 21:49, 7 December 2017 (UTC) [blocked sock]
You mean the guy you're obsessed with and impersonate? Just one of many. You've left a trail here for years. People are now onto what you're doing. Don't try to shift the blame like you always do. Why is "Emil Kirkegaard" blocked on your Wikipedia sock archive? Just stop running around the internet like a nutcase using other people's names. Sysops here have also blocked you impersonating Oliver, Emil and now Davide Piffer.Zeros (talk) 22:17, 7 December 2017 (UTC)
Don't feed the Troll GrammarCommie (talk) 22:24, 7 December 2017 (UTC)


You should just lock this talk page for a month or more to stop all the sock accounts spamming. is spamming a wall of text from Metapedia on multiple accounts, probably trying to bury the above text that exposes his impersonations, socking & trolling activities.Zeros (talk) 23:25, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

Zeros, I'm only going to say this once. Stop talking about the troll, it's what he wants. GrammarCommie (talk) 23:27, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

Uri Geller[edit]

There is no evidence that Piffer promotes Uri Geller. Just sharing a link is not proof of endorsement. The user may or may not agree with the content that they share. In this instance, Piffer did not post a comment on the post. Please be rational, this should be a rational platform not a slandering toilet full of BS. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs


Piffer is not a pseudoscientist. The name of his website is obviously sarcastic and mocking people like those that have created this silly page. Perhaps you guys are not intelligent enough to see this! This page is just a disgrace and it is the outlet of a few highly irrational cranks. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

Your IP traces to Italy, why talk on third person, you are clearly him, lol. You believe in ESP and race pseudoscience. You are not rational. (talk) 13:40, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

So Piffer is the only person who lives in Italy? — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

ESP and PK[edit]

Piffer simply stated that he "thinks" he possesses ESP and PK. He is not sure about this. He stated he wants to test this hypothesis but testing hypotheses is what science is all about. If he was a pseudoscientist and if he was sure that he got these abilities he would not want to test them. Just stop defaming people. There will be consequences. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

Piffer says he possesses ESP, so the dude is clearly a pseudoscience advocate, [1] (talk) 13:38, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
He said he THINKS he possesses ESP. To me it looks like he's just leaving the door open. He is too smart to be sure that ESP and PK are real.— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs
stop lying. his thread title he created is called: extrasensory perception is real.
Piffer has since deleted the whole thread, not realising it is archived. Presumably he realised his support for ESP (that this article made people aware of) makes him look like a crackpot - so he's trying to remove his posts to deny he held this position. That won't work since there's an archive. Tuna (talk) 00:00, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

Request to delete talk page[edit]

The whole talk is filled with impersonations, trolling and Mikemikev socks: Welsh people are cool and Skinhead 1488; RationalP was impersonated by RationalP2 (blocked as likely Mikemikev); the user Zeros was impersonated as Zeros2 and the real person Davide Piffer the article is about has also been impersonated as Real David Piffer (not actually him.) I don't think Piffer has ever posted here. There's also several other troll accounts. I would advise to just delete this mess.Debunking spiritualism (talk) 23:56, 2 May 2018 (UTC) and several other IPs are also Mikemikev.Debunking spiritualism (talk) 00:20, 3 May 2018 (UTC)
@Bongolian, @GrammarCommie, @CheeseburgerFace, agree, yes, no? Debunking spiritualism (talk) 00:13, 3 May 2018 (UTC)
I think it is better just to archive the whole thing. Bongolian (talk) 00:43, 3 May 2018 (UTC)
Just archive it. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 01:48, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

I dont think sharing a facebook page once means you actively endorse someone[edit]

thats it. re: uri G.

IDK surrounding context indicates that he already promotes such beliefs. What other ways you think he can simply share without promoting it? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 00:09, 27 December 2021 (UTC)
