Don't be a baby about swear words. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 16:56, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

I'm not going to beat around the bush when discussing abusive language, though I do place such words in quotes to avoid the impression that I support them. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 17:00, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
The word "fuck" isn't going to cause anyone any harm. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 17:03, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
@Ikanreed Fuck banning the word fuck. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 17:06, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
I don't want to blow this out of proportion, he didn't "ban" it, he made it tag edits adding it as "potentially offensive", growing out of an edit filter built around racial slurs(that he also created). ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 17:08, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
I apologize, I was being a bit hyperbolic in my attempt at levity. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 17:17, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

You horse's ass[edit]

I didn't start the vote early, some other ding-a-ling did, I was just the first to vote. 172.58.15.69 (talk) 21:36, 26 February 2019 (UTC)

Misunderstanding[edit]

Carnivore diet[edit]

I would gladly return there, but if you read what you had deleted you would see the talk page is locked. Which is why I posted there. Liberosaurus Rex (talk) 11:12, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

@Liberosaurus Rex Don't worry, I read it. Unless I am mistaken you have the correct user-rights to edit said talkpage so you can continue with the debate. I am not going to unlock the page itself because the trolls will just do their thing again.
Mind you, I could mistaken and you actually need to get this: RationalWiki:Autoconfirmed. So if that's the case then go fix some typos or something and resume the debate later. β€” NekoDysk 11:16, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
I can't edit it so I guess it's locked at a higher level. But sure, I can wait to be autoconfirmed if that's the grade. Liberosaurus Rex (talk) 11:29, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
Yeah I was hoping that giving you the higher level autopatrolled user-right would allow you to override it, but that doesn't seem to work. And for some inexplicable reason this Wiki doesn't have any way to grant "confirmed" manually. β€” NekoDysk 11:32, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

Liberosaurus Rex[edit]

Some sock named User:Air Force One claimed that User:Liberosaurus Rex is a sock of a banned user. See here: User talk:Bongolian#request to block sock. Do you have any thoughts on this? Bongolian (talk) 22:48, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

On this occasion that user first appeared as Dinocrisis and was blocked by ikanreed for using a name too similar to retired contributor DinoCrisis. They then re-registered as Liberosaurus Rex, fairly quickly lots of sockpuppets appeared claiming that this is Mikemikev, and someone created an account called Defemation rex. Subsequently Liberosaurus Rex emailed me complaining about admin misconduct from John66, (also here) resulting in the section above on my talk page. Since then they started talking some bollocks about living crystals or somesuch nonsense on the Talk:Life, followed as far as I can tell by logging out and talking slightly more coherently about RNA.
In the meantime, I have received a great many emails from people claiming variously to be Abd Lomax, Mikemikev, Oliver Smith, and some others who are presumably their associates. Which has been a general assortment of threats (nasty kind), conflicting information, complaints about various people, and all caps rants accusing me of being a Zionist/neo-Nazi/Antifa scumbag etc. Someone has gleefully written an article on the Cold Fusion Community website which is supposed affiliated with Abd, and contains a detailed profile of me.
There is supposedly some kind of feud between Mikemikev and Smith, both of which have fought on other fora such as Twitter and Wikipedia (where everyone involved in this dispute is banned). This may have included some kind of lawsuit which resulted in the Aeschylus incident. Subsequently I attempted to resolve the issue with Smiths newer account, Arcticos in which nothing of relevance was concluded beyond them saying the lawsuit wasn't related to anything that happened on RationalWiki (directly contradicting what they had said the week before. duh).
Pretty much I would just block them all, except that we don't do that here much and the majority of these people(s) 85+ existing accounts (that I know as a definite) are not blocked. The "real" Smith is a sysop under a known account (and has been a sysop under two other accounts at least) with another sysop account that is probably also his, and the email-people who might be Abd seem to have access to viewdelete. Additionally, multiple accounts have not implausibly claimed that John66 is in some way related to Smith (supposedly a brother). In any case the abundance of long term sleepers makes the idea of blocking them all a probable exercise in futility.
Oh and this feud has been going on for years it seems, and the parties involved impersonate each other so much both on and off-wiki it is impossible to even tell who's who, or even if they aren't all just the same person playing an elaborate puppet game with multiple accounts. Such a bundle of fun.
To return to the topic of Liberosaurus Rex, I don't actually know for sure who they are. I would advise to disregard anything that anyone talking about mikemikev says and just make up your own mind on whether they are a formerly banned troll, or some new person that may or may not be a troll. It's not like there is only one mad neo-nazi, and being paranoid is bad. β€” NekoDysk 23:51, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
@ Bongolian, there's conclusive IP evidence:
Liberosaurus Rex = 82.132.215.120 (he exposed his IP while posting as Rex and has also admitted to being this IP on Talk:Life)
Now click on a related IP to see who this is:82.132.246.186. It's not rocket science - Vekimikem (spell backwards because of new word filter) has been blocked before using the same IP range.Air Force One (talk) 02:25, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
On a final note, you can simply compare social media profiles to see who is doing the impersonations. Vekimikem is banned from Facebook, Twitter etc for impersonating other users. ODS isn't and has normal social media profiles. Vekimikem is a nutcase banned on all of social media for deranged behaviours - he was creating fake profiles of other users so they suspended his main account. http://archive.is/2nPCM and deleted the fakes.

Until yesterday I had never heard of Mikemikev. I tend to avoid drama or talk-pages on this website. Most of my edits are creating articles. From now on I will totally avoid talk-pages. I use this website to document research, I am not here to get involved in petty arguments.

I spent about twelve hours writing the carnivore diet article the other day. The Rex account vandalised the article after I created it then out of the 38 sources, cherry-picked a single one claiming I had misrepresented it on the talk-page (I am open to fair criticism but this was blatant trolling), I did not misrepresent what was in the source. Early humans did not eat a meat only diet... there is not enough data on this subject to know eveything but the data we do have obviously demonstrates we are omnivores. This user Rex or someone associated with him then started socking and writing threats to me[2] which were deleted. He also harassed me on another sock on my talk-page [3]. Until last week I did not know who Abd Lomax was but he has written about 100,000 words about me on his blog claiming I work for a skeptic organization to debunk low-carbers on Rationalwiki and that I am a Smith relative. If Rex is Mikemikev then that is probably why he has targeted me, this would explain his trolling in relation to the carnivore diet. In regard to what Abd says on his blog, I am not related to anyone on this website. I have received funding before on other websites for debunking certain topics, but never this website.

Abd has apparently targeted me because I have been debunking low carb quackery and cholesterol denialism. I read over his blog today. He has heart disease and he has been eating a high-fat diet for the last 15 years... He refuses statins and is opposed to evidence-based medicine. He is basically offended by science refuting his irrational low-carb position so has chosen to take it out on me. I am not associated with Smith, Mikemikev or any of these other people, but I seem to be a target now. I use this website to debunk bad dieting ideas, nothing else. This is the only account I have, obviously I cannot prove that to you but it is the truth. I am in the process of adding an email, so I can talk to anyone in private if they need be. I could easily confirm my identity to anyone who wants a phone call or skype etc if needed. Take care. John66 (talk) 02:41, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for the background, Dysklyver. I can vouch for the quality work of @John66, and for the general avoidance of drama. I was the one who made him Sysop. Bongolian (talk) 05:10, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
John66, I appreciate your point about avoiding petty arguments and commend your viewpoint. If you could just block anyone else looking suspicious as and when they appear then everything should be cool. Personally I consider it amazing how one or two trolls can write such a huge amount of bollocks on that blog, and I haven't read barely any of it yet, but I understand that Mikemikev normally rants about racialism, and Abd rants about a variety of things, seemingly also including his favorite woo diet, but at least the drama (to the extent there is drama) is relatively contained. On the subject of Skype thingies, you are always welcome on the Discord. :) β€” NekoDysk 11:26, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
None of the socks that showed up with names similar to mine to harass and threaten my opponents were me. No threatening or harassing emails were sent by me. It was clearly some kind of false flag activity to get everyone banned and everything locked. Naturally it's impossible to say who was responsible. Liberosaurus Rex (talk) 13:04, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
Certainly the main concern with this situation is that legitimate users would be affected. How things turn out regarding your account is not yet clear to me. β€” NekoDysk 13:10, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

The IP evidence is undeniable that Rex is a racist banned sock that everybody knows here. He has been banned on RW on many socks before for racialism but now is trying a stealth approach. His recent IP addresses use the same IP range and trace to the same location:

The IPS Rex used yesterday 82.132.215.120, 82.132.215.134 match the banned sock 82.132.246.186 (check the talk-page). He is the same banned person. His obsession was racialism, 82.132.220.230 on many other 82.132 IPs has been well documented on RW. He is the only person who uses that range on RW, it is not a coincidence. It is not rocket science to see this. The IP evidence is undeniable. Tremors (talk) 14:52, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

IP evidence is bollocks, stop complaining about IPs, we won't block them for ban evasion unless they are really really annoying. In which case we will bloody well notice without having to be told about it every ten minutes. Plus, There are privacy reasons for not publicly discussing IP addresses in connection with named persons, so stop doing it. And finally, we aren't going to block a dynamic IP for a long time anyway. If it really really matters to you then email someone less pissed off with the whole affair. β€” NekoDysk 16:05, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
The Rex account is 100% Mikey, look at this edit. [4] "I can see how you would be useful if they needed someone to write sickeningly dishonest personal smear pieces to destroy the reputations of people who disagree with the regulars here. You people are lower than dog vomit." Long term editors like Bongolian and David Gerard who have been around here long enough and have seen Mikey's editing on racialism articles would agree that is him, the "dishonest smear" is a phrase he has used many times before. Tremors (talk) 16:13, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
Why are you still going on about it. Rex has been blocked for hours. β€” NekoDysk 16:23, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

Peters BSc(Hons). Peters was blocked today as an impersonation after I emailed David Gerard -- Mike is impersonating my family members, not only on this wiki, but other websites. The reference to the universities on Peters user page are universities I've attended and Peter(s) is an individual related to me he's impersonating across the internet, including using his photo on the Encylopedia Dramatica forum. Boglin is a reference to toys I collected as a child and Mike mocked me for collecting on ED; I now see that account is blocked, but Wang isn't. I provided proof Mike is Wang on his user talk.Paycheck (talk) 18:55, 6 March 2019 (UTC)

You know, they would probably go away if you did. You aren't half feeding the troll here. Just send your stuff to Gerard, or another board member/mod if he's busy, in private, and let them deal with it. I am pretty sure this on-wiki dialogue is encouraging them and exacerbating the issue. β€” NekoDysk 19:35, 6 March 2019 (UTC)
