. . . mostly Smith brothers. Two accounts are clearly and admittedly Oliver D. Smith. The others are, from long-term behavioral patterns, Darryl L. Smith.

A thread with extensive participation.

Abd Lomax created the global ban list yet is suing the Wikimedia Foundation for putting his name on it

Just to make it clear, the claim here was highly misleading.

I created a global ban list, covering community ban discussions, with results. The office ban list was created later by the WMF.
The WMF transcluded that list into the page I created. I never added the name of any office-banned user to that list.
Later, I noted that several people who had been banned or subject to a proposed ban were later banned by the WMF. It was pure information, not intended as defamatory. If the office bans were defamatory (I’m claiming that the publication is defamatory), my action did not increase it.
I have sued the Foundation over publishing a ban with no foundation, defamatory in context. They have the legal right to ban anyone they choose, as Section 230 of the CDA is interpreted, but that does not give them the right to publish it.

  3. Arthur Kerensa (Dysklyver) 12 comments
  4. Michael D. Suarez (michaeldsuarez) 8 comments
  5. Darryl L. Smith (many accounts, probably most throwaways other than Oliver). Identity from behavior, not admitted.
  6. Rome Viharo, identity reasonably obvious, as wqtjja

Other recent throwaways. (I follow WiA, but I have no means of tracking these in other subreddits, but may be informed about them by others, or then, if I comment, I do see notification of replies. I list them if they are Smith or reasonably suspected as such by the duck test. These are throwaways unless otherwise specified.)

mentioned by a throwaway, other than the above:

  • oliversmithantifa parody sock, easily could be Mikemikev. Not an impersonation because nobody would think this was Oliver.
Some process details. (needs updating)
