SPAs in Stewards/Confirm/2015/Shizhao[edit]

Status:    Not done

These users only edit pages related to Stewards/Confirm/2015/Shizhao, and try to let Shizhao lose his steward bit.

  1. GarryWong canvassed a lot of users in different wikis, and already had 3 socks. One of them, Special:Contributions/Maintainwikifree, also opposed Mys_721tx being a steward.
  2. ChrishrursdssPDK put anti-Shizhao contents at the page. This user have no other edits.
  3. URYTOMMY says (s)he deserved Stho002's oppose being heard at Talk:Stewards/Confirm/2015/Shizhao, and have no other edits.

Are these the same user?--GZWDer (talk) 05:47, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Add one.--GZWDer (talk) 06:00, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
The first listed account has already been blocked here. From all listed accounts only one, ChrishrursdssPDK, commented on Shizhao's confirmation. Even if they are all related, a CU here would not have any benefit. Maintainwikifree has not voted on any steward election. I see no real purpose in running a CU here. -Barras talk 15:25, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
@Barras: These users are SPAs and Antigng also suspect ChrishrursdssPDK is a sock. In Talk:Stewards/Confirm/2015/Shizhao#Late Voices Still Deserved Being Heard, Matthew hk is also a victim of canvassing.--GZWDer (talk) 04:52, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
We know that some of them are socks. We don't need CU to deal with them. The qualification to vote deals with this matter.  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:57, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done. We've discussed this and we have come to the conclusion that a CU here is not necessary. It is true that the above listed accounts have engaged in disruptive activities. Be them socks or not, the block of them can be justified without the need of technical evidence, as all of them have per engaged in disruptive activities and canvassing to manipulate a community process. Steward confirmations are not votes, but a consensus-building process and the ElectCom has stated that clearly canvassed votes have been discounted from said confirmation. None of the listed accounts have voted in any steward election, so there's also no suspicions of votestacking at this point with the current evidence provided. Having said that, I'm blocking indenfinitely all named accounts here for disruption. -- M\A 12:05, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
