The Interesting Case of User VLB Pocketspup

Since I don’t have much else to do these days, being banned and all, I keep tabs on the contribution histories of the prominent Team AGW members.  Well Stephan Schulz lead me to the following:

Disruptive_sock_or_pointy_simulator and User_talk:VLB_Pocketspup

Now this would all be run of the mill stuff, except when you pay attention to the edits of this account.  The edit summaries being used seem awfully familiar to some other editor I am familiar with.  So I dug a little deeper and low and behold every one of the article edits this account made were re-assertions of edits previous made by WMC … precisely the editor whose edit summaries these reminded me of.

Is this WMC?  Doubtful.  He’s not that stupid.  I think that the name and the edit summaries were left as clues to get someone to investigate further into the relationship between this sock puppet and WMC.

Now the tale gets better.  🙂  Check out the reasons the blocking administrator gave for why this sock puppet was being disruptive:

Your editing has been adding unsourced claims to plug a point of view, removing sourced information in an attempt to suppress anything which runs counter to that point of view.

Now is that a fair and honest description of WMC’s editing or not?  Hilarious!

So, in one fell swoop this sock puppet puts to rest all those claims that all sock puppets are skeptics AND makes the point that the exact edits being made by WMC would get someone blocked IMMEDIATELY.

Someone should ask JamesBWatson to block WMC immediately as well for the same reasons.

This is priceless.  🙂

UPDATE:

For anyone coming here from Wikipedia because of a sock puppet investigation that has been initiated against me, please see this follow-up response to that investigation.

    Either that or your observation that Hippocrite is actually a sockpuppet of WMC hot a bit too close to home and forced him to do something so blatantly blatant that he could claim he was being setup if a RfCU was filed against him.

  2. […] closest allies on the climate change pages, Stephan Schulz.  In his report he references this post from my blog asserting that this is somehow evidence that I am the sock master, because he deems it […]
