And since I asked Conscience: any suggestions? Cømяade FυzzчCαтPøтαтø (talk/stalk) 05:26, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Witch hunting, new users, the election, and Avengerofthe BoN[edit]

In short:

  • The election result doesn't seem like witch hunting, since the users are old and the evidence is pretty clear.
  • Avengerofthe BoN is a genuine bad faith actor who delights in creating poorly-hidden sockpuppets. What's the proper response, and how do we avoid witch hunts?

I appreciate the invitation to code an extension; albeit completely unnecessary if the current RMF and moderators could be trusted with private data. I also appreciate your invitation to comment, but you don't have a problem to resolve. One moderator was elected who not many people like. Go cry into your cornflakes about it; what could he possibly do?
I like you FCP, but it's pathetic how scared RW is of dissenting opinion, and you seem to be picking up this bad habit. (talk) 00:19, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
Meh. When I and David were looking at the ballots, the first thing I saw was a bunch of near-identical ballots at the top of the vote. Or: Avengerofthe BoN wasn't the clue of fraud, nor was he the problem.
Aside: AOTB is hardly a dissenting opinion. You might know that I'm in favor of purging AOTB's precious Israel/Palestine articles altogether, something AOTB disagrees with me (and agrees with most of the community) on. They're just a whiny idiot. Sir ℱ℧ℤℤϒℂᗩℑᑭƠℑᗩℑƠ (talk/stalk) 03:18, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
I don't understand this sentence : "Or: Avengerofthe BoN wasn't the clue of fraud, nor was he the problem." AOTB is not a dissenting opinion? You might think he's a whiny idiot, I might even agree with you, but that's, like, your opinion man. (talk) 03:30, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
Some of the editors on the election page (eg. Bongolian) seem to be under the impression that AOTB rigged the election. I'm not sure if you think this too, but consider the implications of AOTB owning an account created in 2007 (or 2009 if you prefer). It's possible AOTB is MC reincarnate; I think it's more likely that he had nothing to do with the vote stacking and a group of other editors decided to elect him to fuck with you guys.
