You don't happen to be the Halifax troll do you? DMorris2 (talk) 23:45, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

I'm not familiar with the Halifax Troll, but I'm pretty sure I'm not him. --MikeO (talk) 17:52, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
So then who's your ISP? Just curious. DMorris2 (talk) 22:01, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
That's a state secret Mr. Ontheconservapediablockingreformpanelman!--MikeO (talk) 03:16, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
That's okay, I think I know which one it was; my guess is that it was a certain wireless provider that I complained to. You think I overstepped? Perhaps you'd be surprised to hear I've gotten 11 year old cheerleaders in trouble with their ISPs and school IT departments for committing "minor vandalism" to Wikipedia articles, and their vandalism was a lot more harmless than your's. Not trying to hassle you on RW or anything, I just find the art of abuse reporting fascinating; I'm a real nerd you see. But seriously, give the vandalism up; it's childish, violates practically every ISP's terms, and WiFi owners don't want to have to deal with your silliness either.

Your third sentence is a masterpiece of unintentional comedy. Bravo, sir. <salutes> --Robledo (talk) 19:20, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
By the way DM: that's also known as bullying. Pippa (talk) 19:38, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
"your's" Hee! Pippa (talk) 19:39, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
Bully all you want DMorris2. I will be reviewing my ISP's terms, and making records of any vandalism I commit to prove that it is harmless and easily reverted. And switching up to more subtle vandalism (in fact I've already started) that is more concerned with putting facts into your articles.--MikeO (talk) 20:44, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
My friend, it's not really "bullying," it's just deciding not to put up with people's bolony when I don't have to. The way most ISP terms are written, they can shut you down for "any or no reason." This quite literally means they could shut someone down for having blonde hair, being "stupid," being too ugly, just because they felt like cutting someone off, etc. The only thing they couldn't do is cut someone off and say it's because they're black or something, because that would cause too much controversy. Trying to lawyer your way around things is fruitless; they care more about the 1,000s of rule following subsribers that would be affected by them being blacklisted by a website than one little trouble maker calling for their whaambulence.
