Today I ran across one I did NOT know about. Thanks to a Facebook post, of all things, that referred back to Twitter and thence to a Reddit thread. The Reddit thread, from which his username was censored. He used to claim to be a brony and to have a typical Myers-Briggs score for Wikinerditry, INTP. Good luck finding any evidence of this on a WMF server.

The lunatic's main account, which has admin rights on Scots WP and on Wikidata (don't ask me why):The problem is that this person cannot speak Scots. I don’t mean this in a mean spirited or gatekeeping way where they’re trying their best but are making a few mistakes, I mean they don’t seem to have any knowledge of the language at all. They misuse common elements of Scots that are even regularly found in Scots English like “syne” and “an aw”, they invent words which look like phonetically written English words spoken in a Scottish accent like “knaw” (an actual Middle Scots word to be fair, thanks u/lauchteuch9) instead of “ken”, “saive” instead of “hain” and “moost” instead of “maun”, sometimes they just sometimes leave entire English phrases and sentences in the articles without even making an attempt at Scottifying them, nevermind using the appropriate Scots words. Scots words that aren’t also found in an alternate form in English are barely ever used, and never used correctly. Scots grammar is simply not used, there are only Scots words inserted at random into English sentences.
He has only been on any WPs since 2012. Yet he's managed some admin and rollback rights, despite not knowing what the fuck he is doing. His sco-WP talkpage is full of screaming and Wiki-lawyering. A sure sign we have a "Bad Insider" who is asskissing on IRC or in PMs.
Excellent proof that Wikimedia Land is not a happy place, just a very dysfunctional little septic tank.
Amuse yourself and try to dox him.
