Strange coincidence[edit]

Hi Geo Swan

I don’t believe we ever interacted on en-wikipedia where I am indef-blocked since January (February?) 2017. I am writing to you to let you know of a strange coincidence that seems to connect us.

Back in +-2014, a time when I was quite busy tying to build content on en-wiki, it felt like I was being followed by an editor who was involved in many deletions and reversions of my edits. I don’t remember the details, but I remember two IDs this user went by: Mike and Mrfrobinson (and others that I don't remember offhand). This user was causing me enough aggravation that I tried for a while to see what else he/she was doing on en-wiki by looking up his/her contribution history. I remember at the time that it seemed like this user was doing very little other than hassling me with one small exception: they also tried to hassle you shortly before starting on me (IIRC). I remember at the time being impressed by the way you were able to cut them short. The offending user (together with another user and an admin) finally got tired of hassling me and moved on, or so it seemed at the time.

And now comes the strange part: I was visiting the en-wiki earlier today and by some strange co-incidence landed on your talkpage where I was surprised to see a comment posted by WLC, who happens to be the user who initiated the ANI proceeding that got me indef-blocked in early 2017. Before WLC got me blocked he/she exhibited behaviour very similar to Mike/mrf, but was much more sophisticated with a much better command of the English language. WLC seemed to have no problem on ANI whatsoever, even though when he/she complained about me he was almost a wiki-newbie, and I was a 9 year veteran.

I hope you don’t mind me bringing this to your attention. Ottawahitech (talk) 10:49, 26 December 2017 (UTC)Please ping me

  • Thanks. That is interesting. I know of a couple of instances where both the harrasser and his target ended up being indefinitely blocked. It sucks. Geo Swan (talk) 01:22, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

Answer to your question[edit]

regarding the hidden revisions in the RfA is here. — Aron M (talk) 01:08, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks. I suspected it was something frivolous. Geo Swan (talk) 01:15, 30 September 2019 (UTC)
