Wikipediocracy comment


In regards to your comment here, Auerbach told me he had sent only two e-mails to Wikimedia DC on June 7 and June 9, the second e-mail being to request a response to his first e-mail. He states that he then sent an e-mail to ArbCom on July 1st, exactly one day before Gamaliel started contacting his employer on Twitter with false smears. Whether Gamaliel had been told about the July 1st e-mail is unclear, though GorillaWarfare does say they didn't share the actual e-mail with him. A couple weeks after Gamaliel threatened his job, Auerbach then sent several more e-mails to ArbCom requesting a response to his July 1st query, most were simply requesting a response to his question. The last e-mail he showed me was sent on July 27th, four days before Drmies blanked some of the material on Auerbach's Wikipedia bio. Given my own experiences with Drmies, I sincerely doubt that was a coincidence. I have seen him do this in cases where it was clearly malicious, but also cases where it was apparently not malicious. Whether this instance was the latter or the former I leave to you.--The Devil's Advocate (talk) 22:07, 12 August 2016 (UTC)Reply

@The Devil's Advocate: If someone had been trying to go after my job, I would be careful/paranoid as well, so I do not blame Auerbach for anything. Gamaliel's comments on Twitter are a very different category from the incidents around Auerbach's BLP. I don't see any evidence of people trying to go after Auerbach's BLP. However, it would have been good if Drmies had not come anywhere near the article, because WP:INVOLVED applies. Kingsindian (talk) 06:02, 13 August 2016 (UTC)Reply
Well, I was just pointing out that he probably did arrive at that article in response to an e-mail by Auerbach, in contrast to what you say in that post, it just was not the e-mail on July 1st. You should correct your statement on Wikipediocracy implying there is no connection between Auerbach's e-mails and Drmies editing Auerbach's page.--The Devil's Advocate (talk) 14:57, 13 August 2016 (UTC)Reply
@The Devil's Advocate: Drmies participated in the AfD discussion for the article prior to all this drama. I don't see any evidence that he arrived at that article through the ArbCom email. Of course, these things can't be proven one way or another. Kingsindian (talk) 15:43, 13 August 2016 (UTC)Reply
The stuff he removed had all been in there during the AfD when he voted delete. I may not have a surveillance video of Drmies seeing the e-mail and immediately clicking over to Auerbach's page to fiddle with it, but given that only four days had transpired and this action is just the latest in a pattern of behavior, that is enough for me to say he edited Auerbach's page in response to that e-mail. Certainly it accounts for the time gap you mentioned in your WO post.--The Devil's Advocate (talk) 16:09, 13 August 2016 (UTC)Reply
@The Devil's Advocate: Sure, it is possible and you can draw any inferences you want. I have linked to your point on WO. Kingsindian (talk) 16:18, 13 August 2016 (UTC)Reply
