Consider the 'yet'. So far it has not been bad compared to the last encounters, but I fear more is to come.

It's picking up speed.. insults, questioning people's intelligence.. next up.. gay bashing! Seems to me he's unraveling quicker than usual this time around.

That's the way it goes. WiKi had a 4(?) years reign, Sarah was much shorter but still longer than Mablung, so I guess if this continues he might get the axe in near future.

I guess I just think there are more people like those... and that it is not another pseudonym. Similar, sure.

Very similar. Same behaviour, same stock phrases, same political interests and convictions, same grammatical mistakes.


My little Inquisitorial guide on how to spot a witch:

- Uses Latin stock phrases, spelt wrongly.
- Uses German expressions, spelt wrongly.
- Makes outrageous comments, and later claims they are "traps".
- Interacts with other users as if having known them for a long time.
- Resorts to insults and sometimes bizarre non sequitur vocabulary if someone counters their argument.
- Solid knowledge on Tolkien, but extremely convinced of their own interpretation.
- Resorts to obscene remarks.
- Strongly in favour of a particular American brand of Anarchism; tolerates no other forms of American-ness.
- On the whole completely intolerant of other people's different opinions.

If the tone were for the most part civil, there'd be no issue at all. I don't need sweet or kind, just civil. I actually like hearing the opinions of those/them/him/her/whatever...
So, TWH, please try to take these critiques in the best possible way and try, or I fear your stay here will be short, and in some ways that could be unfortunate.

But that's the rub isn't it, always has been really. He posts like crazy which helps keep things lively, has strong opinions, good Tolkien knowledge... these are all good things. It's his inability to play well with others that messes things up.

I blame the internet [] , if he had to deal with people face to face he'd spend half his life knocked flat on his tookus if he acted so rudely, he'd have no choice but to learn some degree of civility. But the internet is anonymous, so our little web warrior gets to be brave and nasty.

I'm still not 100% convinced wiki & sarah were the same person, but this new kid is so similar that if it ain't wiki it's gotta be his twin.

I don't read the political threads, so I can't speak about those - but in other threads I find he has been more civil than wiki used to be.
And more willing to accept for others to have a different opinion, without calling them names for it. So far.

This is my first time posting in this thread, its been a good read []

Anyway, seems to have died down now. Though I don't think you should ban unless it gets really bad, I've always wanted my very own pet troll []

Regardless of whether TWH has walked among us before, he at least keeps his ugly side to the political threads, which already were(and are usually destined to become) pretty ugly. That said, his attitude is certainly excessive within those threads, and I've never been able to look favorably on someone who belittles others' intelligence as a tactic in debates. Ever.

Still, I'd like to hope he'd cool off a little with a warning, granted he keeps up his current tone. If he really is Wiki, however, that hope is most likely held in vain.

Ummm... not so much, his boorishness follows him where ever he posts, he seems incapable of turning it off to me.

I had many debates with wiki and sarah in the past, my tolerance for that kind of frustration has gotten decidedly low. Think I'm gonna try to sit this exorcism out and stay out of the threads he's posting in.. battle on folks [] [] []

The Steward watches his palantír. He'll take action if needed.

Actually, I think you were on point. []

I think Wiki must be related to the Steward’s wife. [] I certainly wouldn’t put up with crap like this from my own family, much less from a total stranger.

If picking up the public nastiness and taking it to an individual behind the scenes via PM is Wiki, then I can confirm that TWH engages in the same behaviour through direct experience.

I am retaining the messages, should they be somehow pertinent to future action or queries.

I'm not sure, however, that the Wiki we all know would bother with a half hearted attempt at conciliation via the "I was only joking when I called you the product of incest and cognitively impaired" line and then resume the assault. I've yet to be convinced that Wiki even knows of such a concept of conciliation, much less has the wherewithal to attempt even a half formed try at it.

So, the unfortunate hypothesis I am left with is this: there is more than one Wiki in cyberville. []
