Recent events on simple and en wikipediaEdit

Hi there, I know how you feel with dealing with Ljupco, and from personal experience for the last 4 months, I can say, it sucks.

You'd have to ask the him to find out why exactly they harass you, because only they could give you a full understanding of what goes on inside their head. But please don't ask - attention is like oxygen to such people. But infact, I think it was because you were on my side when it came to edit warring with him.

While I understand how hard it's been for us here (particularly Antandrus for 16 years now), consider how bad it is for Ljupco. He has a mental illness going on his head, which prevents him from thinking what's real and what's not. So if he comes with his "so called chess team" with Tadeusz, Marko, Vesna, Ljupco, Michael, Jan, John, Goran, Wanda, Fred and there's probably more that I missed, it's because of his mental illness that prevents this.

Because of this, his claims sometimes don't make sense, such as thinking I, and Antandrus are sockpuppets of each other, when infact, Antandrus lives in California, and I live in Sydney, Australia and he is well aware of that. But he can't express himself coherently, leading to all this mess.

But this guy needs a shit load of help and support from his community. Unfortunately, Chicago is too big of a city for that to happen, and the health system unfortunately doesn't prioritise mental health patients.

Ljupco has also been to County Cook Jail before for three years, for doing things like these. But I'm really sorry that you have borne the brunt of so much harassment and anger in the past 72 hours. I appreciate that it can be annoying at times and at times, moments where you just want him to back off.

But a few things that I have done is change my ways of dealing with him. I've felt numerous times where I've wanted to call him a "fuckwit" or something else, or telling him to stop. But I resisted. Communication with him is what keeps him going. Now the one thing I wish Chicago police would confiscate off him was his computer and his VPN. So it's why you should never argue with him. It's like "don't feed the troll" Just rollback his edits in a click. Now since you're not a global rollbacker, I suggest you install Twinkle Global, which works on all WMF projects. Just revert with TwinkleGlobal or rollback if you have it. And for the most part, it works.

For you, all you have to do is revert his shit and then report him. But likewise, if you don't, someone else will in a few minutes time. That's alright, and well within the powers of a one month old user.

I apologize in advance about this long email like message. If it wasn't needed, then I'm sorry for wasting your time. But dealing with Ljupco is like dealing with a 4 year old child who throws tantrums and wouldn't resist. He may be offensive, but he needs more help than we do.

For those who might care...Edit

@SHB2000 @Sakura emad :I'd like to tell both of you I've been blocked due to Apple iCloud Private Relay. I don't think I'll be able to edit for a good few months, so if you guys are wondering what's happened to me, this is what. I've sent a steward request, but no response. I'm contacting you two as this info might help you not waste your time. SHB, please send an admin request for my user pages to be full protected until I return. Also some answers:

  • I saw this coming.
  • I have no clue how to turn it off.
  • Apple relay is basically the onion router.
  • I can't respond except on meta-wiki.
  • Two much Elytrian is also blocked.
    @Darkfrog24: See the above please. No issues or major changes in wlwsa21. Elytrian (talk) 16:09, 25 October 2021 (UTC)
Hey, for Apple relay, please see this under "If a website or network doesn’t work with Private Relay" there's a way to turn off. And also I will help you ask for protection in simple AN. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:10, 26 October 2021 (UTC)
Elytrian, how long would you like your user pages there to be protected? --Ferien (talk) 14:42, 26 October 2021 (UTC)
two months if I don't return. Elytrian (talk) 04:48, 27 October 2021 (UTC)
I've protected it for two months and if you return before then, just ask on my talk page or on the administrators' noticeboard for it to be unprotected. Regards, Ferien (talk) 11:49, 27 October 2021 (UTC)
Very late reply. I remember seeing a discussion on phab:T289795 about this issue. Haven't been very active on simple these days, so didn't realise this. SHB2000 (talk | contribs) 09:21, 20 November 2021 (UTC)
