On man. Is there a surer sign that someone has lost all their Wikipedia status and powers than the sight of Timmy feeling brave enough to give you shit?
I'm afraid that you clearly don't understand what "fl. 1672" means. Your ignorance does you no credit. Eric Corbett 18:35, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

How about explaining the term instead of behaving insufferably? Fl. = Floruit = "flourished" — the time in which a person was most active. Not to be confused with a date of birth. best, Carrite (talk) 06:04, 30 May 2019 (UTC) ping: Medovar

How about minding your own business and stop trying to get under the skin of other editors? Eric Corbett 12:12, 30 May 2019 (UTC)

How about you stop being unnecessarily rude and chasing contributors from the project? Carrite (talk) 17:09, 30 May 2019 (UTC)

How about you fuck off? Eric Corbett 17:12, 30 May 2019 (UTC)

I should have known better than to have a conversation with Honeybunchesofoats after 4:00 pm GMT.

Interesting that the reanimation of the Corbett seems to be paralleling that of the Cassianto.

Somebody at the water board must have screwed up and dumped a load of ferret urine into the drinking water in the dirty industrial north, got them all riled up and looking for a leg to bite en masse.

Either that or they are both planning to attend the Manchester meetup......

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Meetup/Manchester/36

....and realized if they didn't have any recent edits, they might get turned away :shock:

Hopefully there will be an Administrator there, someone to apply the fifty or so blocks he has coming to him for sanctions breaches. Or for just being a tight git at the bar.

I will do as I please regardless of what you or anyone else may say. Eric Corbett 23:21, 22 June 2019 (UTC)
Doubtful now, if someone says it to the WMF.

The local system can't even be bothered to remove an obvious topic ban violation, much less block for it, not even when you show your characteristic good grace in response.

As ever, protecting Eric comes at a very high price for Wikipedia.

I'm quite happy to state that I'm one of the disillusioned Wikipedia editors behind that site. Eric Corbett 18:20, 28 June 2019 (UTC)
All hail Traditional Wikipedia.......

https://engole.info

It must be finished now. Can't think of any other reason he'd be wasting valuable writing time whining on SJW Wikipedia.

Get back to work Eric. :lol: :roll:

Well, looks like my hunch was right, he is trying his hardest for a martyrdom. Part of me really doesn't want him to get it, it has been hilarious watching him get ever more desperate. Nowhere else for him to go now really, except "please ban me". I think that disqualifies him as a martyr though, right?

I'd settle for another few short blocks and an ever growing list of things he must not do, to be just ignored a further five times with only one violation even being reported, while everyone pretends all this shit is just normal, like he's literally Wikipedia's drunken uncle and they're OK with that.

Fitting that NewYorkBrad is still around, trying to clean up the puke and change his soiled undies. It is largely his fault that Eric has had to suffer the long slow decline of the last few years, when he could have gone out with a proper bang. The swift sure cut of an executioner's blade. It's what he always wanted.

Still might be a way we can get the whole matter of how the fuck he lasted this long, rolled into these inquests and RfCs about Fram.

How fitting that his death throes gives everyone the chance to be a click away from gold like this......
For his breaches of the standards of conduct expected of editors and administrators, Black Kite is admonished.
.....which will serve nicely to focus minds in the Fram affair as to who really took a dump in the community's sink. After Eric of course.

As usual, Eric has achieved what he wanted, at least his second prize. Undermined the very idea there is anything anyone can do even when he is blatantly and knowingly breaching clear and unambiguous ArbCom sanctions drafted after hundreds of hours of deliberation, and forced multiple Administrators and editors to have to debate the Great Matter of whether he is just a minor irritant who should be ignored for the greater good of Wikipedia, or a major irritant whose efforts to get under people's skin cannot go unanswered.

You would think there would be some institutional memory in play here, given most responders know the whole sorry history. Whatever you think of Eric, it's undeniable he has wasted close to a million man hours of volunteer time as they try to decide what to do about him, and an ever increasing amount of that (close to 100% by now) is being wasted through deliberate acts of provocation, Eric knowing fine well what he is banned from doing, and that while trying to ignore his breaches is seemingly a preferred approach, if he does it often enough, he will get someone to file an AE request.

He will keep wasting everyone's time unless or until they create a one-off policy that simply says 'just ignore Eric completely, whatever it takes'. I mean, they have one that says that already - WP:DFTT - and it is looking like at least some of his former enablers are finally coming around to the idea that for all their efforts, he is essentially at this point just a little troll who needs the occasional smack to get him back under his bridge, at least for a short time, and doing anything more is just a waste of everybody's time. Even then, they still want to tweak the sanctions he is under, as if that were really the issue.

Bishonen of course thinks Eric is entirely blameless, his misconduct is of course always the fault of the people poking the bear, he is entirely a slave to his emotions. Because of course she would. It isn't like Wikipedia has a policy that says Administrators can't say things that are so clearly false the only explanation for their words being committed to print has to be a deliberate intent to deceive their colleagues and frustrate the system.

:lol:
For violating his topic ban, Eric Corbett is blocked for a month. The block may be lifted, either by myself on appeal or by another administrator, if Eric Corbett explicitly and unreservedly commits to observe the topic ban in the future, such that, in the administrator's judgment, the block is no longer needed to ensure compliance with the topic ban. To be clear, this does not require Eric Corbett to agree with or like the topic ban, ArbCom, or me. It just requires him to agree to comply with the ban as long as it remains in force. Sandstein 06:46, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
Not too short, not too long, but juuuuuust right.

In a month's time, his addiction will have worn off just enough that it will really grate on him to have to start the whole performance again.

Come on Brad, Bishonen, and whoever. Overturn that. Not an office action, just a local Arbitration Enforcement. Worthless, really. You've done it before and faced no consequences, so do it again. I dare you. Nobody's looking. Honest. I don't have Buzzfeed and Slate on speed dial, pinky swear.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

---------

By way of reaction, is of course the obligatory unsubstantiated accusation of harassment on the part of the enforcing Administrator from a notoriously toxic editor.

I'm so glad shop steward Jimmy has cut the legs of Trust and Safety. Now we can sit back and watch that high crime be completely ignored, and watch the health of the autonomous self-governing community blossom as a result.

So desperate......
@Sandstein: It'll be a cold day in hell before I ask you for anything, much less bow to your authoritarian style of "management". But I would like to say just one thing, which I wasn't allowed to say at the RfA that caused this storm in a tea cup. The reason I object to the WiR project isn't because it's attempting to address some gender imbalance in Wikipedia's biography articles; on the contrary, I see that as a worthy goal. The reason I object is because it's using the gender fallacy as a smoke screen to protect poor articles that ought not to be written at all, or at the very least written properly. There, I've mentioned gender again, so do your worst and see exactly how little I care for you or for what Wikipedia has become. Eric Corbett 18:06, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
It be were a dog, you would shoot him. Or more aptly, if he were a ferret, you'd stuff him in a sack with a stone, and chuck him in a river.

:lol:
could the block perhaps be altered to only cover 4pm to 4am in the editor's local timezone, as suggested by a thoughtful person on another internet website? This would remove the probability of inappropriate edits.
