The first thing we need to do is extract a set of discussion threads from the AN/I archive that mention wikihounding. Preliminary searches suggest that the term 'wikistalking' is also in active use, even though it's discouraged (en:WP:Wikistalking redirects to en:Wikipedia:Harassment#Wikihounding. So I decided to focus on threads that used either 'stalk' or 'hound'. For a couple reasons, I only search the thread titles, not the body text, because it looks like the words get bandied around a lot in heated disputes and I wanted to gather more straightforward or canonical cases for analysis.
