  • Juantheman96 (talkcontribsglobal account infodeleted contribsnukeedit filter logpage movesblockblock logactive blocks) I don't really want to deal with this, but this user (who has also edited as an IP) is questionably modifying pages for various sensitive political and religious pages, and undoing reverts. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 23:02, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
    Just blocked for a day. The person/people with the weird "Islamist" agenda are hugely persistent over many years and will be back. Equinox 23:17, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
    Leaving aside the politics, he also very obnoxiously changed "nationalization" to "nationalisation" with the edit summary "spelling correction"! Equinox 23:20, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Various ip addresses - adding perfectly formatted, plausibly-looking French words that have zero Google hits. SemperBlotto (talk) 21:14, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
  • (talkcontribswhoisdeleted contribsnukeedit filter logblockblock logactive blocksglobal blocks). Not sure if newbie or vandalism, but creating lots of broken entries – Jberkel (talk) 01:50, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
    They've been problematic before. Might've been @Equinox who dealt with it last time — did we just nuke the entries? —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 02:06, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
    Yes, I've done that several times. The user always comes back. Equinox 03:24, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
    I've got to rework the abuse filter- it only caught 18 of 60+ edits this time. This person is very persistent, and industrious, but apparently also extremely stupid- a very bad combination. I suspect there's some kind of neurological problem as well. They've been doing this for at least 5 1/2 years, they still have no clue about what they're doing, and they have yet to ask anyone for help or information.
