Xboxsponge15 (talk · contribs) does virtually all vandalism, zero engagement, zero learning, zero changing, with an edit history of 99% reverts. Check out that Talk page! Can you please block? WP:CIR WP:NOTHERE WP:TEND. Thanks. — Smuckola(talk) 22:12, 5 August 2022 (UTC)

Hi Smuckola, I'd be surprised if this is vandalism. It's clearly disruptive, though, and Praxidicae has warned them about the punctuation issues 2022-08-03T23:40:08‎, making clear that this is an "absolute last warning". I agree that Praxidicae's message is an absolute last warning, and I'll block Xboxsponge15 without further warning if the issues persist. That said, they haven't made any article edits since the warning so far, so I hope waiting for one last time before applying the block is an acceptable thing to do. I'll make sure that this thread here doesn't get archived until either a few months have passed or the user has been blocked, whichever comes first. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 22:22, 5 August 2022 (UTC)
I don't think this is a good faith editor FWIW. I'm with Smuckola on this one. PRAXIDICAE🌈 22:23, 5 August 2022 (UTC)
Okay, let's assume the user is a vandal. What would I do if I were them? I'd try to find another issue I haven't been warned for yet, to annoy other users for as long as possible, always able to claim I haven't been warned. Of course, there are other options Xboxsponge15 could take, but this strategy seems to match their modus operandi best. I'll take that into account; the (somehow expectably upcoming) block will not be prevented by such behavior. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 22:31, 5 August 2022 (UTC)
Yeah I think we're all sympatico here, thanks. Not-good-faith doesn't require a deliberately calculated vandal with a goal of vandalism, but in this case means grossly and irreverently irresponsible behavior akin to vandalism where outward motive is irrelevant. The user has a belligerent agenda for content and with absolutely zero regard for Wikipedia project, policy, users, or warnings. It doesn't matter why. We'll just wait and block, like ya said. — Smuckola(talk) 06:32, 7 August 2022 (UTC)

Leroy CroninEdit

Hey, Just a heads up. Previously you were involved in this article and cautioned a contributor/ contributors RE potential COI editing. They have come back to the article, not engaged in the talk section and just blanked the same section as before. Carver1889 (talk) 08:46, 8 August 2022 (UTC)

Hi Carver1889, thank you very much for the notification. If Alfienoakes continues edit warring through the new semi-protection, please notify me again. I hope three months are sufficient to discourage further logged-out editing and/or block evasion. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 19:43, 8 August 2022 (UTC)
