Malignant malcontent Giano still on trolling rampage

Some of you may recall that I retired from blogging—about 3 hours ago. However, the emotion-filled responses I received convinced me to continue, as did the reemergence of a notorious troll. Giano is a blight on our Great Wiki. It is time to purge him and his petulance from our community; now is our chance and we must seize the opportunity.

Nevertheless, realize that the trolls will crawl out from under their rocks and will not make it easy. For example, it should be no surprise to you, dear reader, that the same people that advocated the execution of an innocent man are now supporting a virulent disease-spreading beast.

This reprobate started his troll binge by berating FloNight with bizarre hate speech. Recall that FloNight, as Thatcher aptly points out, lacks male genitalia. Is the targeting of Flo a coincidence? Do you really believe that Giano asked her about the IRC admins channel because of supposed "assurances" she had made, or does it have more to do with her lack of a penis? The answer is clear to every non-troll reading. Undeniably, this is more evidence that Giano is an out-of-control-creature, motivated to destroy our collegiate atmosphere and spread his hate-filled misogyny to all corners of our Sacred Wikipedia. Thatcher, an important Arbcom clerk and checkuser, agrees with me. 'Nuff said.

Accordingly, in a subsequent discussion, many noted his obscene trolling; however, FT2 took the lead in supplying the diffs, proving beyond a reasonable doubt that Giano is King of the Trolls.

In this one, he is defending our Dear Leader, but he also says the F-word, something no honorable Wikipedian would say. Here, he suggests that Flo may have had a stroke and lost her ability to speak (this could also be a threat). Oh, but the troll has not finished! After hoping that Flo had a stroke, he said that she should be paralyzed! Giano is certainly implying that Flo contracted a neuromuscular disease when he started posting on her talk page. Is that the daydreaming of a demented troll or a threat from the criminally insane? Whatever the answer, this troll is begging for a blocking. He later threatened to pull out all of Ryan Postlethwaite's teeth, which is a particularly despicable threat, since Ryan has a gorgeous smile.
FT2 saw these comments exactly as I saw them: pure, unadulterated incivility. Back at the hideout, Giano winks and nods to his fellow trolls, high fives them and generally has a merry time. Although, he did let it slip that he speaks German, a known character trait of ripened and repugnant rascals.

Thank goodness that FT2 (a very concise and clear communicator) blocked
Giano for all of his treachery, just as we would any schoolchild vandal. The brainless and obtuse made arguments like, “but he is one of the best writers we have, surely there is another way to deal with this!” and “his commitment to the project cannot be questioned, wah, wah, wah, I’m a crybaby!” These are the imbecilic comments of ignorant people. If the imbeciles’ statements are true, then why does he set his sights on the Cathedral of Wikipedia, where our most respected leaders congregate? He is clearly a heretic and an inciter of Wiki-violence, attempting to induce fear, uncertainty, and doubt at every opportunity. The way to deal with this revolting insurrectionist is to shoot on site.

Why must we allow him to keep creating headaches for us? Is it all because of a few stupid articles that do not get half as many hits as the article about blowjobs? Is the content he provides really that important? Our readers do not seem to think so. It is time for a Great Leader, such as FT2, to tell him he can take all the architecture related crap that he writes and stick it where the sun don’t shine. Who gives a rats patooty about architecture anyway? There are certainly more important articles out there, zoophilia being one example.

It is the trick of the troll to question the perfection of our Wiki; Giano is a chief deceiver in this little game. All admins have a Jimbo given right to stay connected to the admin IRC channel for 4 weeks, 3 days, 52 minutes, and 18 seconds, non-stop. Giano wants to run rampant all over your Jimbo given rights. He wants to stop you from doing important things in the admins channel, like announcing that you’ll be right back because you are going to make a sandwich and complaining that your foot hurts. Yes, Giano wants to take this important medium away from you, so that he can head on back to the hideout and gloat about it with his clan of good time fun boys, while they utter obscene German phrases, such as “Leck mich im Arsch” (a catchphrase common among trolls).

What is more important, all that boring European poop that Giano types about day and night, or socializing on IRC? The answer is clear, trolls. However, just in case it isn’t, here’s a hint: this stupid place is surely not important. Why don't you work on something important, like the article about Labrador Receivers and the legality of having sex with them?

FT2, rid us of this brutal beast, for we have important things to do in our admins channel and this out-of-the-loop oaf is interfering. Fellow Wikipatriots, pray to the Wiki Gods! Pray that they grant strength to FT2, the fearless insurgent fighter, so he may toss out this tenacious troll forever.

Further, I issue a challenge to the malignant malcontent, Giano. Just before you were blocked, you referred to “logs” that some other baneful brute evidently passed on to you. FT2, sensing a field day for trolls, blocked you befittingly. You then made another terroristic threat, implying that FT2's noble action will not stop you from leaking these logs.

Normally, as a Good Wikipedian, I WP:Ignore all leaks. In spite my philosophy on leaks, I will make an exception in your case. Send those logs to me, Giano, or post them in the comments section of this blog and I will deconstruct the dossier and prove once and for all that the admins channel is not the den of iniquity that you describe; in fact, I will prove conclusively that it is entirely righteous and beyond reproach. I have it on good authority that the two most discussed topics, besides maintaining Wikipedia and keeping it troll free, are kittens and salt-cured meats—which, though I am allergic to cats and a vegetarian (meat is murder), are not controversial topics. So stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

Your action or inaction in this matter will be telling. Put up or shut up, troll. Otherwise, make like a tire and hit the road! FT2 already showed you the door. Take a hint...

As you say, there's no question that #wp-en-admins is completely beyond reproach. How can anyone think otherwise? Just look at this example, from April 2006:

6:20 pm| [Cyde] I just found the best science journal article ever. http://www.nmr.nl/deins815.htm

6:20 pm| [Cyde] " On 5 June 1995 an adult male mallard (Anas platyrhynchos) collided with the glass facade of the Natuurhistorisch Museum Rotterdam and died. An other drake mallard raped the corpse almost continuously for 75 minutes. Then the author disturbed the scene and secured the dead duck. Dissection showed that the rape-victim indeed was of the male sex. It is concluded that the mallards were engaged in an 'Attempted Rape Flight

6:20 pm| [Cyde] ' that resulted in the first described case of homosexual necrophilia in the mallard."

6:21 pm| [Amgine] [did *not* need to read that]

6:21 pm| * sean_black|out read that ages ago

6:23 pm| [mark_sweep] clearly, we now need to create an article on [[homosexual necrophilia in the mallard]]

6:24 pm| [Cyde] Dude, I'm writing it

6:24 pm| [mark_sweep] i foresee an entire series of articles along the lines of the "exploding *" series

As you can see, a fine example of admins using reliable published research to form a collaborative effort to build the encyclopedia.

Go admins!

It's awfully rich that YOU of all people would accuse someone else of sexism, after your post last week targeting Sue Gardner, which you only begrudgingly retracted after some REAL wiki heroes pointed out how you were willfully and deliberately misreading the diff. And let's not forget how heartlessly declared Kelly Martin to be you "not ... redeemed at all" - Looking at it all in context, it seems like you have some sort of odious vendetta against female wikipedians.

"Retiring" then coming back the same day? Which one are you, JzG or Alison???

I don't know about you, Wiki Defender, but after that unnecessary above comment from an anonymous troll (SPA, for sure), I would not think any less of you if you decided to retire once again -- maybe this time FOR GOOD. Or, until you have some free time after touching up the Vinod Khoslas article. Imagine with that $500,000 how many more foreign workers Sue Gardner will be able to hire without any public job description posting in advance! Glory be to the Foundation!

Wuh Woh Wiki D, ye are headed into treacherous waters here matey!
Between Scylla and Charybdis with the sword of Damocles dangling overhead!

For much like unto our God King (Blessings and peace be upon him) you are taking on the Big G!

Giano's Wiki-Fu is mighty...many noble Wiki-Heroes have fallen before it. Please don't let yourself become just another notch on his +5 Troll sword!

Do not underestimate him, he is a relentless mafiosi!

Safety conserns aside, though, you do make a valid challenge...I wonder, ala Jimbo, what could be in those logs...

(4:51 again) - It also hasn't escaped me that you continually refer to posters to a certain site as "Wikipedia Ruiners" - clearly the site is just an excuse and this is really a vile personal attack directed at Alison. I again implore you to clean your own house before throwing stones at other misogynists.

Sorry to see you blocked, and forced to resort to appealing to the Wikimedia Foundation. If you happen to be female (your username doesn't reveal your actual gender), you might be able to assist in getting a favorable resolution by the strategy of having a sexual relationship with Jimbo, provided that you refrain in the immediate aftermath from selling his clothes on eBay or other such vexatious actions. If you are male, your best bet would be to make a large monetary donation to the Foundation and promise more of the same in the future if your account is treated favorably.

You are spot on again, Wiki Defender. Giano is not interested in building an encyclopedia. He doesn't care about feeding Africa. He hates freedom.

Giano is only interested in emboldening the haters. He must be stopped.
