Apparently, because well, why wouldn't you, the Wikipedia user Roxy the dog named himself after his actual dog. Said dog is now dead, due to cancer. Which made me wonder, given how his owner behaves toward other people on Wikipedia......

Karma? :shock: :lol:

Or maybe the poor dog just didn't want to live anymore. Although apparently the sad looking dog whose picture is displayed on Roxy's user page is not Roxy, but belongs to Smallbones. Who is, of course, also a fucking asshole.

Dogs pick up on the subtle cues of their human owner's behaviour very easily. Perhaps PETA need to be informed, having an owner who is a veteran Wikipedia editor is likely to be damaging to the health of the dog.

For those wondering, I am of course, a cat person. It seems to me to be almost cruel to prey on the pack instincts of a lesser lifeform so as to provide yourself with emotional enrichment. Just like it seems inarguably cruel to use your superior knowledge of the inner workings of a website to prey on other other humans in a sick game of capture the flag. But that's just me.

HTD. For the sake of all dogs everywhere.

Blocked and unblocked for an episode of epic immaturity, during which he merely whined about how the blocker was wrong to take his block log into account because it misrepresents him. Quickly unblocked by Doc James, obviously because Roxy is anti-"woo", but officially because he promised to stop being disruptive. Which he technically didn't.

Well, as he requested, I looked into the circumstances of his blocks, picking May 2017 and September 2018 since they were both pertinent as having been lifted on the strength of his supposed reticence and reformability, and gee whizz, I was not in the least bit surprised to see they too were incidents where this guy did an immature thing, got blocked, and after much more immaturity, finally apologised and promised not to do it again.

He may be sincere, or he may be playing the game. What is clear is that this isn't going to stop. Not when he keeps getting unblocked without admitting what his problem actually is, namely immaturity.

Unsurprisingly, because it is quite a good predictor for immaturity, three days ago he told a vandal to fuck off. As part of the recent incident that saw him blocked, he told Andrew Davidson that he was a "piece of work". As is normal for Wikipedia's system of governance, he is only getting blocked for perhaps 1 time in a 100 that he is actually being disruptive.

Even after unblocking this time, he asked anyone who would listen, why Jytdog was able to manage what he had not. This was not a question a mature person would have asked, since it illustrated he either genuinely doesn't know the difference between disruption and normal editing, or he is asking the question as an attempt to justify the disruption he has since apologised for, sort of.

It seems Wikipedia is doomed to keep pretending these manchildren are valued assets. The effect, it seems, is that it is incredibly hard to even spot an adult on Wikipedia anymore.

Regardless of the matter at hand, I don't see how Roxy the dog's "Grow up, and grow a thicker skin" is a helpful comment, or even an acceptable response to a complaint about personal attacks. Bradv 18:57, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
On boy. If we go by the Tarage noticeboard trolley is not allowed precedent, Roxy the diseased dog is going to be blocked three months from now. He has had warning number 1. Now we wait for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc.

Definitely the Tarage playbook. After following up on the above unacceptable comment, an Administrator finds a month long record of similarly combative conduct from the diseased dog, and all he can think of doing is politely requesting he not do that. ... =876597060

And people wonder why Wikipedia still has a problem with its toxic environment. What's to wonder about? They are simply far too tolerant of established users breaking the rules. It is approached as if it is an optional thing, a lifestyle choice.

"May I ask if you could be slightly more mindful?".

Our Mies, Drmies aka Natuur12 is the best example. Sysop and formal Arb on both WPNL and WPEN. Trolling around, fixing even a SanFanBan. A friend of the woman who is in general pestling them by flaming there most times wiki-gender nonsens. No woman in this world will ever be helped by that.
"Helping" backward guys as he did with that "Ymnes" with that Global Lock of me. In short a huge troll.

He socks, he uses multiplay amount with acces to crap editors, he is flaming and gaslighting. Ok, they have sinked him this time as a arb.
But how many years is this going on? Covered by his wiki friends and WMF?
And what will be the result at the end, a better Wikipedia? Do you really think so?
