It's pretty clear vandalism (it's likely he's seen all the unofficial warnings on his talk page,) but I'm waiting for clarification by what Boxy meant by "This is your last warning..." (here) - is that now a permaban, or a simple 24 hour ban? Linkthewindow  Talk  07:10, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
My last warning meant that if he didn't start actually contributing in a worthwhile manner, and continued his vandalism, he would be permbanned on the next offense. And I can't seen any helpful contributions being made since my warning. He's just going around Mall danger report pages after they've been sacked by the Mall Tour, and posting "go survivor, ra ra" messages. Unless any other sysops object in the next few hours, I'll permban him (if no one gets in first) -- boxy talkteh rulz 08:19 6 March 2009 (BST)

Well, here it is. Vandalism by constant harassment of users. User has a history of being hostile, insulting, and creating nuisance cases here and on A/A. Requesting a ban for a user that has shown a majority of his edits are vandalism rather than actual good faith contributions. --– Nubis NWO 07:23, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Welcome to A/VB. Next time try and use specific edit difference when you bring a case. Now, assuming there's no bias in the ruling on the case, this is open and shut Not Vandalism. We have no civility policy on this wiki, also as much as you'd like to suppress the truth, everything I'm saying is true. Of course, Christians have been trying to silence those who have been disagreeing with them for the past two millennia, so this is hardly a surprise. Perhaps you should follow the advice of someone who understands the religion better than you. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem!

Since when do you need a reason to insult stupid suggestions? Not vandalism -- boxy talkteh rulz 07:49 5 March 2009 (BST)

Ah, yes, boxy takes the simple route and ignores the big picture. You never surprise us. You see, there is a pattern here. When people accuse Iscariot of basic vandalism most often it is NOT vandalism. When people accuse him of harassment it is ALWAYS harassment. It's that black and white. Is he blanking pages? No. Is he threatening and attacking users? Yes. Nice to see that you will let him stay around so that we can deal with more of his petty cases and general bad attitude. --– Nubis NWO 14:36, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Read everything you just said, and think about it for a while... it may help if you think of it in relation to your goon mates when they last invaded the wiki, and how they interacted with Teslita. Then come back and say it again with a straight face. Basically, if you put up a stupid, stupid suggestion, that includes religious content being used as flavour, suck it up when someone decides to ridicule those beliefs -- boxy talkteh rulz 08:12 6 March 2009 (BST)
That Tselita thing isn't really valid Boxy. Tselita had a history of harassing users who voted against her suggestions or pointed out something incorrect in the numbers for them. --Karekmaps?! 17:04, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
Also, the Tselita "issue" was really confined to Suggestions and follow ups on the talk pages that she bitched and moaned on. The goons did not constantly make petty A/VB, A/M cases, they did not dick around in A/A, and lo and behold after 2 months they stopped. I think we see the glaring difference here.--– Nubis NWO 14:25, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
He has been warned for dicking around on admin pages already, that's got nothing to do with this case, Nubis. This is simply about the edits in suggestions, and if you weren't on a witch hunt, you'd be ruling not vandalism too. There have been plenty of examples of much worse suggestions harassment, you know it, Conndraka knows it. You can't go around gagging people from giving their opinion on stupid suggestions just because they annoy you on a totally different part of the wiki (admin pages) -- boxy talkteh rulz 06:39 8 March 2009 (BST)
The report was about the insulting nature of his comments. It wasn't about him signing someone's name to his post, it wasn't about him blanking a page. It is a user complaining about being harassed by another user that has shown a history of harassing users. How in the world can you overlook that? This isn't the first report about this. This isn't a new problem with this user.
If I was on this alleged witch hunt I am pretty sure I would have voted Vandalism on every report against him. But no, maybe if you throw out enough accusations one will stick. Should I start calling you St. boxy? --– Nubis NWO 12:56, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Ouch, calling me a Saint. That hurts. He'll get banned soon enough, if he continues on his current path, no need to set ridiculous precedents like this to get him. Basically, some n00b makes suggestions on talk suggestions, and then takes them straight to voting despite the poor response they receive there, and he thinks he's being harassed because someone calls his shit shit. HTFU, or GTFO Suggestions -- boxy talkteh rulz 13:43 8 March 2009 (BST)
Silly me. I expected you to get the connection with the "St." part. What was I thinking? What are you thinking by making such an empty threat as He'll get banned soon enough, if he continues on his current path? The path he has been on for well over the last 8 months at least? Oh no, in 2010 you might consider finally maybe doing something about him! I'll mark my calendar.
You are like those worthless parents that say "I'm going to count to 3" and then do the 1 ...2... 2 and a half... crap. Do you not see what he has done? He gets away with being an asshole constantly to other users, any case brought up against him is either a drama bomb because he is guilty of vandalism (in which case he screams BIAS! and that the sysops are going against the will of the community), or it is a drama bomb because what he is doing is vandalism but most of you don't have the balls to do something about it. Look at this case. Why the fuck has it not been "decided"? There are other cases posted after this one that are decided. It doesn't make sense.--– Nubis NWO 23:19, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
It hasn't been decided yet because it is a tied decision. Yet again you don't make any case against the actual edits sited here, only more "but he's an arsehole" rhetoric. He's an arsehole, no question, but that's not the same as being a vandal. Plenty of others have reveled in being arseholes on the suggestions pages, so until he does something that is vandalism in that context, he should be given the same freedom there as anyone else (unless someone arbies his arse). Your parent metaphor is a bit off too... I'm not counting anything, I don't want to ban him, and have never threatened to do so. A/VB is here to try to modify behaviour before it gets to the banning stage, and if you step back a bit, it is actually working, even in this case -- boxy talkteh rulz 08:03 10 March 2009 (BST)
Umm... Boxy, it's two votes Vandalism, to three votes Not Vandalism. Unless I'm missing something here. Linkthewindow  Talk  11:38, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
Actually, it's the other way now because reading through this discussion Nubis actually does have a good point with this:
Nubis said:
The report was about the insulting nature of his comments. It wasn't about him signing someone's name to his post, it wasn't about him blanking a page. It is a user complaining about being harassed by another user that has shown a history of harassing users. How in the world can you overlook that? This isn't the first report about this. This isn't a new problem with this user.
And as such I have to change my comment. The case is about his harassing users in general and the admin edits and arbitration actions show a long and clear history of this behavior. Vandalism --Karekmaps?! 22:42, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Vandalism as Nubis. I would have ruled sooner but for some reason Vandal Banning doesnt show up on my watchlist. Conndrakamod TAZM CFT 18:53, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

The hell? There is no civility policy on this wiki. That's been shown in several cases across different parts of the Administration. How you can rule Vandalism here beggars belief.-- Adward  20:33, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
There is on suggestions which is why his vote is struck but it's not vandalism. Honestly though if he keeps up harassing users that's not a civility issue that is one of vandalism and users have been escalated for as much in the past.--Karekmaps?! 21:30, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
I ruled vandalism because we now have the Host TOS in play, and IMHO this violates restriction 1. And although the Wiki does not have a civility policy, TOS supersedes Wiki policy. The sysops will be working on exactly how things are going to have to be interpreted initially and then we'll go to the community from there once we have an impact evaluation and discussion. Yes ladies and gentlemen, the Red tape just got even better. Conndrakamod TAZM CFT 22:26, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Still even if he isn't blanking pages it isn't helping, and mostly harming the wiki to make needless insults on people's character and religion. This should be a punishable offense.--Super Nweb 22:42, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm not seeing a ToS violation here. His idiotic opinion isn't particularly at the point where I'd call it racist just characteristically uninformed and biased. --Karekmaps?! 22:52, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
So it would be fine if I called you one of the "delusional fuckwits" who doesn't agree with me. that is completely called for and relevant to a civil discussion on using a piece of wood to hit a zombie? Yeah I don't see the logic there. His statements are irrelevant personal attacks on users.--Super Nweb 23:01, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

I would like to point out that using the ToS page I just created as a backing reason for any ruling is just...dumb. We still have to set it up, find out it's interpretations and how they'd relate to us specifically with our policies and such, and everything else that's required with something like this.

Also, Not Vandalism as I've seen worse things being said. Also, lack of a civility policy FTW. Can someone point out to me how his user page insults those of a particular faith? The only thing I see is a lovely Dune quote (Ya Hya Chouhada! Muad'Dib! Muad'Dib! Muad'Dib!) and a quote I have only heard from the Legacy of Kain series.

All this is not to say that he will forever be excused from punishment should I decide that his treatment of other users goes too far. Iscariot, please tone it down some.--Suicidal Angel, Help needed? 01:10, 6 March 2009 (UTC)--Suicidal Angel, Help needed? 01:10, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

It's not his userpage, it's the comments on the suggestion pages I linked to in the post.--Super Nweb 06:47, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Who hacked Karek's account? He would never say something as asinine as this: Honestly though if he keeps up harassing users . Keeps up? Like this is the first time or he has shown any behavior other than harassment? Do I need to link the lovely rant you (Karek) typed up responding just to Iscariot's sysop nomination?

And SA, you didn't even know what the case was referring to (thinking it was his user page) not to mention that lovely "should I decide that his treatment of other users goes too far." How many times do we have to show that he has a long habit of being an asshole with no positive contributions?

Out of curiosity, shouldn't his second warning have not been counted towards this escalation as he incurred over 250 edits and a month passed since his 24 hour ban? --Johnny Bass 17:36, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

He's also at his 48 hr ban, not 1 week. --  AHLGTG 17:50, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
48 hr ban, anyone? --Pestolence(talk) 20:26, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
Should only be a second warning as he would only have 1 outstanding warning due to deescalation. Next escalation would be a 48 hour ban after that. At least that's what I read here --Johnny Bass 20:47, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
Yes and No... It should be a 48 hour ban...Clock on 250 edits starts over if you get hit with another Vandalism (As I understand it) so the 9 January warning wouldn't have cycled until 250 constructive edits after the 30 Jan 24 hour ban. Conndrakamod TAZM CFT 21:06, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
From his 24 hour ban until now he's had over a month and 250 edits. The escalation of the 24 hour ban should stay, but the second warning should be cycled out because of the time frame and edit quantity. To promote users to reform and become good contributors to this Wiki, a single vandal escalation can be struck out for every 250 good-faith edits the warned user makes, provided that one month has passed since the user's last infraction, with another month for every subsequent striking after the first in the series, restarting in the event of a vandal escalation. If a user has more than two vandal escalations, the first escalation struck shall be the second warning, followed by the bans in descending order of severity (If any), and finishing in the first warning. Last incident was January 30th, this case was filed on March 5th. The punishment should only be a second warning. If he gets another escalation after this, it should be the 48 hour ban, then week, etc. --Johnny Bass 21:12, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

This and other repeated vandalism to Mall Tour pages. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem! The Rogues Gallery!. <== DDR Approved Editor 03:28, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

So far we've had, repeated vandalism to every Mall Tour page, two suburb pages and impersonation of an admin. I want an IP check on this, I suspect I already know the culprit. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem!

I truely sorry, I am truely sorry about all the things I done in the webpages, I hope you can forgive me, and I will never do this again. I promise with my good-side of my whole heart.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Abcvirus (talkcontribs) 03:46, March 1, 2009.

Warned - and very close to an instant perm-ban, but the edits to the suburb page can be seen as trying to be constructive, perhaps. If the vandalism continues, it will be upgraded. Doesn't show up as an IP match for anyone here lately -- boxy talkteh rulz 03:49 1 March 2009 (BST)

A warning? Are you serious Boxy? Those edits in Shackleville were in no way constructive, nor were they in any way an improvement to the wiki. I don't think we should give him a perma-ban now that you've already pulled this shit, but Boxy, the fact that it happens to be something Iscariot is heavily involved with makes me wonder that for once, his cries of bias may be true.--Suicidal Angel, Help needed? 14:29, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
No, wait, strike that, he added an and into a place where it was needed. How could I EVER doubt that that was constructive?--Suicidal Angel, Help needed? 14:31, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
There's a difference between someone with a known problem and someone without one. Permabaning is a last resort and should only be used on a three edit in the most extreme cases where it is blatantly obvious that they will never attempt to contribute. If he keeps it up he gets permabanned, right now he's essentially a new user that broke some rules and Iscariot is gonna whine about and probably threaten instead of behaving like a grown up. Don't indulge him, Vandal Banning isn't here to ban users, it's here to let them know when they start crossing the line and provide them with the chance to alter their behavior. --Karekmaps?! 18:40, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Oh, come on now, Karek. You have to realize that in order to show how not biased they are against Iscariot they have to go to the other extreme and support Iscariot. It doesn't matter that banning was never meant as a punishment of a bad user, but as a last ditch effort to stop vandalism. You are either with Iscariot or against him in this world. --– Nubis NWO 15:21, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Before another round of complaints roll in, I noticed that he's started submitting danger reports without signing them (like this). So it looks like he's impersonating other users. However, considering he didn't sign his comment on this topic either, I'm inclined to think he does not know how. So I posted a WelcomeNewbie to his talk page, along with an offer to answer questions. I think he's trying to help, but he's on a dangerous course if he does not start to learn. ~ extropymine Talk | NW | 4Corners 04:32, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

The danger reports thing is the single most problematic part of that template. Has been for years which is why I started working on a auto-signer in ProjDev. It's not much to go by for making an impersonation case really.--Karekmaps?! 06:01, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
He is continuing to do so: [1] [2] [3] [4]. Now, these comments might be trying to be helpful, but they're really not. --Bob Boberton TF / DW 03:41, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
