First of all, "no money" is how I've been described. It is not accurate. I'm retired, with erratic sources of some extra income, unpredictable. But I have enough. I'm active on two sites that lead me to Reddit posts. One is the WPO Discord server, which has a bot that reports all posts to the subreddit WikiInAction. The other is Reddit itself, I'm very active on the Sudoku subreddit, normally several times a day, which is the tip of the iceberg, because I research what I write, it can take hours for one post. but 15 posts to that subreddit seems like a lot. What would fuel those, especially, would be Reddit notifications that someone has replied to a comment of mine. Most of the day, most days, I am logged into Reddit. That has only been going on for a few months. What Anyone is commenting on happened 13 days ago, in a particularly active thread.
Breaking this down into threads:
01.*06:03 15 Sept 2019, long post opened the thread (by the OP)
02.*10:39 15 Sept 2019 I commented on the original post. I continued to research and came back with information as I had it.
03.*10:52 15 Sept 2019 I replied to a comment by the OP on another's comment.
04.*--14:02 15 Sept 2019 I replied to the OP's reply to the above.
05.*11:00 15 Sept 2019 I commented again on the original post.
06.*11:38 15 Sept 2019 I commented. brief response to OP'q question.
07.*13:14 15 Sept 2019 I commented again on the original post.
08.*--16:08 15 Sept 2019 I responded to a reply by the OP to the 13:14 comment
09.*----18:03 15 Sept 2019 I responded to a reply by the OP to the 16:08 response.
10.*------21:29 15 Sept 2019 I responded to a reply by the OP to the 18:03 response
11.*16:11 15 Sept 2019 I commented, responding to another comment.
12.*16:41 15 Sept 2019, I commented responding to another comment.
13.*16:45 15 Sept 2019, I responded to another comment.
14.*16:35 15 Sept 2019 tagged throwaway troll, probably Darryl Smith.
15.*17:52 15 Sept 2019 tagged throwaway troll, ditto.
16.*18:31 15 Sept 2019 tagged throwaway troll, ditto.
That is an unusual level of activity in a WiA thread. The OP actually engaged, so there was quite a bit of back-and-forth. In addition, I commented originally without having identified the user and the actual problem. I came back with that information, since he had announced it to the world (elsewhere.) His comments did not quite make sense, but I do AGF and kept asking him for clarification. He stopped responding, his privilege. And this all means what? I'm a writer, spend almost all my time writing, for substantial periods. I get notifications on Reddit whenever someone responds to me, and I'll often continue the conversation if I think it might be useful.
Inferring "obsessive behavior" from this essentially identifies as obsessive any serious engagement with others. I tag the throwaway trolls, briefly, because I track the behavior of this sock master, and he often deletes his accounts -- or they are deleted by Reddit -- and become very difficult to find, and certainly to correlate. Is that "obsessive"? He certainly thinks so. You wouldn't happen to know him, would you, Anyone? After all, you could be . . . anyone. (But this would certainly be new behavior.)
