Ali Al Suleiman's new sockpuppet

Hello, Alaa! In enwiki, I nominated the article Kinda El-Khatib which is created by Ali's socks in various Wikis for deletion. User:Dw Journalist looks like Ali's sock. Also, User:Charles Matthews approved many articles which are created by Ali. Could you check these users? Kind regards,--Kadıköylü (talk) 09:53, 29 January 2022 (UTC)

There is a thread en:User talk:Charles Matthews#Speedy deletion nomination of Kinda El-Khatib arising from a (now rejected) speedy deletion discussion on enWP. I'd be happy to discuss what I'm doing. I'd prefer to do that by email. Charles Matthews (talk) 09:59, 29 January 2022 (UTC)
FYI Charles Matthews, I was about to write an email to you to ask about the details, but I aborted that idea once I saw your comment on the AfD where you (indirectly) asked us to assume good faith about the actions of this user, which gave me the clear impression that you did not know who you are dealing with.
This guy is not a newcomer, he has been socking for over 4 years and insulting everyone who disagrees with his ideas. He is constantly pulling up new tricks out of the hat to achieve his goal. This is not the first time he tried to look in good faith by editing articles about other journalists: he has this before with en:Alaa al-Siddiq and eventually convinced a different user to move Ali Al Suleiman to mainspace. Now he is attempting the same, with you. ~StyyxTalk?^-^ 12:34, 29 January 2022 (UTC)
Your assumption about my intentions was simply incorrect. AfD is bad enough without the personal attacks. Charles Matthews (talk) 16:23, 30 January 2022 (UTC)

I commented in en:Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#Request_for_a_temporary_ban. Best --Alaa :)..! 19:56, 29 January 2022 (UTC)

Global unlock for spesific IP address

Hi Alaa, my friend from Balinese community just noticed me that you block him at this spesific IP address. Can you removed the block so we can ask him to create a wiki account. Thanks. Sincerely, Joseagush (talk) 00:57, 23 February 2022 (UTC)

Hello Joseagush, unfortunately this IP range can't be unblocked now, as it was engaged in huge cross-wiki vandalism, and as you read that the block will end on 11 March 2022, (For more information, please see stalktoy/ So you can:
After the account created, he'll nor be affected by mentioned block, as it's on "anonymous only". Best --Alaa :)..! 18:10, 23 February 2022 (UTC)

Fulfilling global block request

Thanks for fulfilling my global block request for an IP. I was honestly a little afraid that they're only supposed to be globally blocked if the IP has edited on multiple other Wikis. Blaze Wolf (talk) 18:33, 7 March 2022 (UTC)

Also, I noticed that it says you are experiencing "real world stress" at the moment. Hope you get better. I probably won't encounter you much outside of Meta since my main Wiki I edit on is enWiki and you have stated (or at least, implied) that you mainly edit on Arabic Wikipedia and it's counterpart (Arabic Wikibooks, Arabic Wikisource, etc), however I hope you keep up the good work wherever you may prefer to edit. Blaze Wolf (talk) 18:39, 7 March 2022 (UTC)

Thanks Blaze Wolf! You are welcome at any time  . Sorry for late replay --Alaa :)..! 21:32, 18 May 2022 (UTC)


Greetings, I hope you are better This user has made a very good unblock request on UTRS. I've copied it to EN:User talk:Badehmasare. However, he is globally locked as an LTA. The question is, then, is this a sock of an LTA or was he locked for a cross-wiki rampage at the time of his block on ENWIKI? The things he wrote on ENWIKI were uncharacteristic, so compromised account? Are we being lied to? Thanks. --Deepfriedokra (talk) 08:33, 18 May 2022 (UTC)

Hello Deepfriedokra, thanks. Hope you are doing well! In fact, I can't remember this user, but after digging in his account data and logs, I remember that this conversation was one of main reason to lock this account globally. Also, based on loginwiki and arwiki CU logs, the check reason "Sock of User:أليكس" (Please see CA). I can't find anything more of that. So, maybe the "unlock" process should pass through Requests for comment, like /Global unlock for Ezekiel53746. Best --Alaa :)..! 21:31, 18 May 2022 (UTC)
Thanks. Was socking. --Deepfriedokra (talk) 06:51, 19 May 2022 (UTC)

Block of /28 range

The /28 range 2600:1000:0:0:0:0:0:0/28 is not an open proxy, it's a dynamic mobile network belonging to en:Verizon Wireless. Even if anon. only, the sheer collateral on that range is a lot. Wizzito (talk) 09:03, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
