Global Warming - HG

An interesting theory that HG may have returned to plague with his global Warming theories. The edits which you mention on TK's page are identical, but I'm not buying it. I think it's just a troll who was looking at the history, liked what he saw and reposted it.--Bobbing up 05:46, 10 December 2007 (EST)

That would seem as likely as any explanation. On the other hand, TK's assertion that HoG was "run off" seems kind of like bullshit looking at his contributions history, more like he went kind of crazy and started posting about low flush toilets and vandalising articles... --JeɚvsYour signature gave me epilepsy... 05:50, 10 December 2007 (EST)
Actually HG left immediately after he lost sysop here, although he never confirmed that one was a consequence of the other. How much of what HG posted he actually believed I never worked out.--Bobbing up 06:06, 10 December 2007 (EST)

His final unfrocking was here. [[1]] He blocked me ( before I was a sysop) for pushing the "POV" that the tower of Babel was a myth. Being involved I remember it well. :-) --Bobbing up 06:14, 10 December 2007 (EST)
Yes, HoG blocked Bob in the middle of a small edit war. His excuse was "I thought everyone here was a sysop", which is semi-reasonable, although 1) he could have checked and 2) he never apologised. See Elassint's talk page for my apology over a misaimed block last weekend. Anyway, HoG was fairly reasonable for a while, engaging us, not agreeing with us, but we all "played well together". Then after a one week vacation IRL, when he came back, he was almost a different person. "Off the rails" seems about right. I think he may have spent a week talking to his buddies about us liberal swarmers and got all riled up, then came back here and unleashed the rile. humanUser talk:Human 17:32, 10 December 2007 (EST)

From TK's "too embarrassed to leave it up" archive #4

Is HoG really gone? Perhaps he's still here, only now just vandalising articles anonymously. Our vandals really seem to appreciate his work. Contrast HoG's magnum opus [2] with the latest anonymous IP vandal [3]. --JeɚvsYour signature gave me epilepsy... 05:35, 10 December 2007 (EST)

Two weeks?

Jebus, it's just TK. Okay, it's a given that he's going to insult those who insult him and maybe a few innocent bystanders. I'm not quite sure I like the idea of stifling one side of the conversation without any recriminations toward anyone (amesg) troll baiting him (TK). CЯacke® 21:02, 15 December 2007 (EST)

Yeah, to some extent I guess, but he was getting on my tits. Look back through his edit comments over his entire lifetime here, he's always like that. It's not just when people are giving as well as they're getting, it's just his attitude. We know he can be civil when he wants to be, he lasted quite a long time on Conservapedia before his inner arsehole got the better of him. It's just he doesn't want to be civil here. He has no intention of making any sort of contribution, he's just here to piss and moan. --JeɚvsYour signature gave me epilepsy... 21:12, 15 December 2007 (EST)

Well, I'll hazard a guess that no one is going to be editing over christmas/new year so it probably doesn't matter much if he is blocked during that period. Unless he's the kind of sad little prat who really does want to edit a wiki over his christmas dinner :D --JeɚvsYour signature gave me epilepsy... 21:18, 15 December 2007 (EST)
Well, my computer is an ENIAC (MarkV), which is slow as hell but it heats the house nicely. I almost have to edit to keep my pipes from freezing. My point above was mainly about how the "community" has to exercise a bit of moderation in its groupthink attacks of known provocateurs, otherwise we prove his point that we are like CP in that we cannot brook disagreement with using the banhammer. CЯacke®

"I'll hazard a guess that no one is going to be editing over christmas/new year" Why, is there some sort of event going on I should know about? --Kels 21:38, 15 December 2007 (EST)

I remain brainwashed naively convinced that RW's interactions with TK could be civil and even productive, if both sides could just bring themselves to let go of past feuds and present prejudices. Currently, every fight only serves to reinforce previous negative notions about the other side. I in no way see how a two-week ban will help matters - we are not CP, and banning a non-vandal user reeks hazardously of the type of totalitarian banhammering they engage in over there. I somewhat understand why you did so, Jeeves, but I believe two weeks is far in excess (of course people edit over Christmas - ???). Vandalism is solved with bans. Arguments (even with "troublesome" users) are solved with discourse. That's one of the most important ways we differ from Conservapedia, no?
Well, I'm no sysop, and I'm fairly new to the mob as well. But that's my opinion, I guess. And personally I'd like TK to be unblocked. UchihaKATON! 02:37, 16 December 2007 (EST)
Personally, I reckon he deserves it. It's in line with our blocking policy, it's not unusual that first time vandals get 314 hours to think about what they've done. TK, however, is a habitual and persistent troll who can't argue with people in a civil manner. In many ways, he's far worse than most of our vandals since it takes so much time to deal with his nonsense. His block isn't forever, he can come back in a couple of weeks if he wants to, but I'd hope if he does come back and still insists on trolling, then I'd hope he'd get a 2 month ban. Still, I can't argue with the mob, if I'm not persuading anyone here feel free to give him time off for "good behaviour". --JeɚvsYour signature gave me epilepsy... 06:33, 16 December 2007 (EST)
I agree, he deserves it. But I don't agree with doing it. (Even when he starts to refer to some "crone" as being named that by someone else - a blatant lie, and an attack on someone, apparently.) So, as pleasant as it is around here without him, a two week block - for what, lifetime achievement - seems wrong to me. I'd vote for (1) block for 1 day (pretty much time served by now?), and (2), if we can agree on it, a serious warning that we're gonna go fibonacci on him, in "days", if he persists with the vile and rude part of his persona. But, and this is a big but - if people pile up on him without provocation (and they do that, so many here simply hate the man), it's reasonable to expect a less than pleasant response. humanUser talk:Human 22:29, 16 December 2007 (EST)
So... is it agreed then? Has TK served his "sentence" well enough by now? In which case... would someone with the power to do so (i.e. not myself) let him back into the mob already? UchihaKATON! 22:58, 16 December 2007 (EST)

Uchiha, it's a nice thought that TK could play civilly with us, but I'm afraid that's as far as it goes. The reason I'm so angry with TK - and doing so much trollbaiting - is that, contrary to what he'll tell you, I'm the one who's cut him the most slack, listened to the most of his deranged ramblings, and given him the most second, third, and fourth chances. I've gotten nothing in return: he seizes on anything that disrupts his evil seekrit plans to become re-infuriated with you yet again, and if the Special Discussions Group taught me one thing - and it taught me many - it's that TK has never been straight with me, even when he's played nice. I'm sorry, but I agree with Jeeves. That said, I can also see that Human has a point. If we set in stone a rational way of dealing with him - no parole, no debate - and stick to it, he either (1) plays nice or gets blocked forever. So on the off-chance that clemency carries the day here, I vote to affirm a fibonnaci block sequence (in days), and that blocks be handed to him for insults/mindless trolling, but obviously not for polite criticisms, should he be able to utter the same. Mebbe.-αmεσ (ninja) 00:10, 17 December 2007 (EST)

See TK's talk page for my unblocking and warning comments. Seconds would be appreciated, if anyone is so inclined. Actually, without seconds, it's just me being an asshole, in TK-land. So let us try to not aggravate him, and maybe he won't aggravate us? humanUser talk:Human 01:15, 17 December 2007 (EST)
