Abuse and intimidation of other users by rxy (one of the stewards)[edit]

This user is not worth the steward. Not suitable.

Over the past month, this steward has abused his/her rights and threatening other users with inappropriate reporting to the T&S.

(Japanese)現時点で私はスチュワード権限をもっており、熱くなって濫用するタイプなら既にあなたは私の不適切なスチュワード権限の濫用によってグローバルロックや jawp やその他で無期限ブロックなどを受けているでしょうね。私が権限と私情を完全に分けて動く人間でよかったですね。もちろん、あなたは T&S チームへの通告の対象に含まれていますよ。しかし、案ずることはありません。あなたが利用規約に抵触するような活動をしていないと思うのであれば、何も起こることはないでしょう。利用規約に違反する行為があると認められた場合、注意や警告から一定の活動規制、最大のものではグローバル追放や法執行機関への通報といった措置が取られますが、本件ではどれだけ多めに見積もっても注意で済むでしょうね。/(English)At the moment I have steward permission, and if I am the type that gets hot and abuse that permission, probably you're already getting a global lock, indefinite blocks on jawp and others due to my improper steward abuse. You are glad I'm a person who completely separates authority and personal feelings. Of course, you are included in the report to the T&S team. But don't worry. If you think you are not doing anything that violates Wikimedia Terms of Use, nothing will happen. If T&S are found to be in violation of the Terms of Service, they will take precautionary measures and warnings to certain activity regulations, and in the largest case they will take measures such as global ban and reporting to law enforcement agencies. This time, you will be received warning even if they estimate highest.

  • This comment led to many oppose because other users pointed out that that was blackmail. I also thought that was blackmail. I was very scared.
    • The user with steward right has implied abuse of rights.
    • This shown that the user who made oppose and negative comments was considered to be in violation of the Terms of Use, and maybe banned globally.
  • This RFA ended on 13/27/0.

  • In the RFB(Request for bureaucrat) of one globalsysop, he/she voted for support. However, he/she made a very negative comment. Like the opposite reason.
  • Other user have pointed this out on the talk as inappropriate. He/she replied to this point:

(Japanese)T&S に通報します。/(English) I will report you to T&S.

  • After that, he/she explained the reason as follows.

    (Japanese)理由: 良いコメントの例 に記載されているとおり書いておりますが、賛成時に懸念点を書いてはいけないとはなっていません。これは自由なコメントを委縮させる悪質な行為であり利用規約の禁止事項「嫌がらせ」と判断しましたので、通報いたします。/(English)Reason: I wrote as described in the good comment example, but it doesn't mean that I shouldn't be concerned if I support. This is a malicious act that curtails free comments. I have determined that this is "harassment" the prohibited items in the Terms of Use, so I've report you.

  • He/she reported to T&S without answering any point. Improper use of T&S. This is a very personal use.

In these inappropriate remarks and actions, the Japanese Wikipedia has a discussion request for block(RFB)

  • As on other sites, he/she said:

(Japanese) ウィキペディア日本語版のコミュニティにはもはや WMF の基本理念や利用規約に従う気はないらしいので、利用規約違反の疑いがあるものには逐一 T&S チームに通報していきます。(English) It seems that the Japanese Wikipedia no longer wants to follow the WMF philosophy and  Terms of Use, so I will contact the T&S team every time I suspect a violation of the Terms of Use.

  • No apparent breach of the Terms of Use could be confirmed and is entirely his/her personal opinion.
  • He/she was advised to resign from stewardship twice, but he/she declined them. (1, 2)

I'm posting this logout because rxy is scared. All opposition to him/her could be reported to T&S and subject to global sanctions. Also may be locked due to the abuse of his/her right. Since he/she is a checkuser of the loginwiki, he/she can see the personal information of me and other objectors. He/she was also said be able to see them at logstash, on an external site, Twitter (his/her tweet).

From the above, I think rxy is not suitable as a steward.  Please comment from various perspectives. Although it is not the time for confirmation, I think we need to remove his/her steward flag as soon as possible. -- 00:19, 27 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Why on earth would rxy be banned as a Wikimedia steward. He is (1) a vandalism fighter (2) always blocks ISECHIKA socks. I strongly Oppose Oppose, without a doubt. 00:31, 27 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • I think this unrelated to his many services. He had also worked as an administrator, oversight, checkuser, and bureaucrat on Japanese Wikipedia. But, these things have made his support for adminship almost gone. On the contrary, many people want to his block. At the moment, his RFB (request for block) has 19 support. This means that two-thirds want the block. -- 02:37, 27 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Comment Comment The review process for stewards takes place annually in alignment with the election of new stewards. This process of anonymous comment by IP addresses is poisonous and should cease, especially those specious claims of abuse of checkuser rights at loginwiki. Processes and roles at jaWP are separate from their duties as a steward. Claims of abuse of use of stewards tools can be referred to Trust and Safety, Ombudsman Commission or discussed with Stewards, as they are the only group who can either review and act depending on the breaches claimed.  — billinghurst sDrewth 21:47, 27 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

rxy has lost all rights on Japanese Wikipedia. Also, he was banned from Japanese Wikipedia for half a year. He did a great deal of harm to Wikimedia projects, including Japanese Wikipedia. The riot he caused with steward right in Japanese Wikipedia destroyed the community that was working to compile the encyclopedia. Other stewards should immediately remove his steward right. He is very harmful to the development of Wikimedia projects. -- 22:39, 25 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Ruslik0: I recommend to remove steward rights immediately, and a global lock if this continues.

Statement by User:Green[edit]

Strong oppose I found today this comment page by coincidence. I do not understand what the IP users insist. I read the Japanese documents throughly, but a real problem was not found to me. There is nothing wrong to express he or her opinion. It seemed that he only performed his duties by expressing a comment like that. His comments mentioned above does not contain any threat indeed. What's more, "comment by IP addresses is poisonous and should be ceased, especially those specious claims", thus I agree too. If this is really a matter, an account user should claim, instead of IP users. --Green (talk) 12:28, 15 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Comment Comment jaWP can manage their rights, and their problems, there is no requirement to discuss someone's rights from that wiki here. Stewards rights are reviewed annually, and that is the place for the review of this steward's use of the tools. Concerns for Ombudsman can and should be made that way, and not advertised here, they will investigate as they need to for issues that fit within their domain. Come back in February and from a validated account that meets the criteria have your opinion then. I suggest that this be closed with no action required, utilise existing processes.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:34, 8 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
