Ikin has been a jerk ever since she joined this wiki. Calling user vulgarities, not following policy, and being rude wherever she goes. This just happened:

[20:34] <Evil1888> ikin, WTF DID YOU DO
[20:34] <Megan> don't call me rude.
[20:35] <Evil1888> ikin, you have been rude
[20:35] <Evil1888> many times
[20:35] <Megan> and you are a imposter
[20:35] <Megan> just like chess.

[20:36] <Zamorak> Hai.
[20:36] <Megan> What are you using to open the port 80?
[20:36] <Evil1888> idk, my brother set up the server
[20:36] <Megan> lul fail
[20:36] <Evil1888> i just need something to host my project
[20:37] <Megan> what program
[20:37] <Evil1888> just stop or udo what every you are doing
[20:37] <Evil1888> apache
[20:37] <Megan> just restart apache
[20:37] <Evil1888> i can't
[20:37] <Megan> why.
[20:37] <Evil1888> i'm 2 miles from there
[20:37] <Megan> lul
[20:38] <Megan> Hm then it can get hard
[20:40] <Megan> funny how I only did 40 mb/s
[20:40] <Megan> could have done harder
[20:40] <Megan> :/
[20:40] <Megan> but i've stopped.

I have no idea what she did but I was unable to get to my site (which is for a school project on a personal computer), connect via TeamViewer, or upload/download via FileZilla. Attacking me on a personal, real world level is unacceptable, inexcusable, and is beyond against RuneScape:User treatment policy.

Something extra

After an "interesting" conversation in IRC, Cook, Aeriana and myself gained access to a chat log for MSN after Ikin said that she had gotten someone else to attack Evil's servers. Below is a transcript, spaced for clarity.

(5:30 AM) Ikin:seth 
(5:31 AM) Seth:hi 
(5:31 AM) Ikin:could you fuck up some one for me? 
(5:31 AM) Seth:ok 
(5:31 AM) Ikin:He's trying to make a school project site lol 
port 80 
(5:31 AM) Seth:runescape info lol 
(5:31 AM) Ikin:yup 
ugly site too. 
(5:32 AM) Seth:done  
(5:33 AM) Ikin:aw 
I wanted him to timeout :/ 
(5:33 AM) Seth:? 
(5:33 AM) Ikin:he's at irc
(5:33 AM) Seth:lol 
(5:38 AM) Ikin:are you still doing it? 
(5:38 AM) Seth:yeah 
(5:38 AM) Ikin:it's a apache
not him
(5:39 AM) Seth:its hosted on his computer though 
(5:39 AM) Ikin:so you can stop
(5:39 AM) Seth:the isp is qwest 
(5:39 AM) Ikin:it's on a school computer 
(5:39 AM) Seth:oh 
(5:39 AM) Ikin:<Evil1888> i'm 2 miles from there 
(5:39 AM) Seth:his school needs to get better internet  taken down with 40Mb/s 
(5:39 AM) Ikin:yup 
(6:21 AM) Ikin:they want me banned X
(6:21 AM) Seth:lol
i forgot to stop 
(6:21 AM) Ikin:lul 
(6:21 AM) Seth:stopped now

Leading up to the above (in IRC)

<Cook_Me_Plox> Megan, shell booting is still illegal by that law
<thebrains222> ^
<Megan> You don't even know what it is
<Cook_Me_Plox> I know the basics, and that's enough to know that it counts as attacking under that law.
<Megan> Ok what are the basics
<Aeriana> When you're hitting someone with 40mbps with the intend to make their service unavailable, that's a denial of service, no matter how you look at it.
<Aeriana> *intent
<Cook_Me_Plox> Megan, what are you trying to do?
<Cook_Me_Plox> Are you telling me that you didn't break the law?
<Megan> See what you know
<Cook_Me_Plox> ..
<thebrains222> this isn't 20 questons
<Megan> Because you're not beleving me still if I said it before this little "conv" began
<thebrains222> questions*
<Aeriana> That thing looks so lame too.
<Megan> that's not even the one I was looking for
<Cook_Me_Plox> Did you or did you not break 18 USC 1030?
<Megan> Do you know about the shell booter or not?
<Cook_Me_Plox> You first.
<thebrains222> you have the right to remain silent
<Cook_Me_Plox> This isn't a court of law
<Cook_Me_Plox> And you're not under arrest.
<thebrains222> well, actually, anyone has the right to remain silent anyway
<Megan> probably won't
<Megan> because my friend did it
<Aeriana> It looks like a pretty lame scanned script kiddie tool btw.
<Megan> and he's in the us
<thebrains222> wow, great good for you
<thebrains222> sure
<Cook_Me_Plox> Megan, that's bs and you know it
<Aeriana> Res is a bit low, but looks like it's got 4 options
<Megan> See
<Megan> That's why I don't give a fuck giving out info
<Cook_Me_Plox> No, I don't see.
<Megan> because who will believe me
<Aeriana> "hit 'em on the HTTP port", ICMP flood, SYN flood, and I can't see what the 4th is.
<Cook_Me_Plox> Do you have any evidence that someone else did this?
<Megan> Big big msn chat logs.
<Cook_Me_Plox> Other than your word, which I'm obviously not inclined to trust?
<Cook_Me_Plox> Produce pls.
<Cook_Me_Plox> And anyway, that still is conspriracy to commit fraud.
<thebrains222> u know, this is just making your situation worse
<Megan> yuåp
<Megan> yup*
<Aeriana> Inciting someone to commit an illegal act, it just makes thing soooooooo much better, right? ;)
<Megan> yup
<thebrains222> ikr
<Megan> and you know what
<Megan> I don't really give a fuck
<Aeriana> I find it hilarious, I hope you guys keep it up.

Very strong support - I want her gone now! Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 04:52, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Strong support - I never really trusted her to begin with. Given that this is her second major violation, I say a block of 2 weeks to one month is in order. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 05:01, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

I want infinite. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 05:02, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Given how she's acted, she will likely screw up again after this, and then we can go infinite. However you're probably not going to get any support for infinite at this time. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 05:04, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Pending support - If this is true, then it's really disturbing and she should be blocked for a month. However, I want a statement from Ikin. ʞooɔ 05:07, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Support - As above Farming cape (t).png Lil cloud 9 Talk 05:11, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Support - These users should not do things like this. --Farming cape (t).png Ikin Talk 05:14, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

I lol'd. ajr 05:15, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Neutral - If Ikin is to be blocked, it wouldn't be as a result of that incident. I read that entirely as a joke, nothing more. It doesn't look like it was her intention to cause actual harm. However, her behavior on other occasions may warrant a block - but definitely not on-wiki. IRC incidents should be dealt with on the IRC. ajr 05:15, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

For the sake of this post, I shall assume that she did not intend any harm, and that it was a joke (though I do not believe this is so): You don't find it troubling that she finds using bots to crash someone's computer/whatever to be a joke, and something that can be done at random for grins and giggles? kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 05:19, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
How is her attacking my property(the server), crashing the service(web server), and taking my brother's site offline a joke? Such attacks are illegal in some countries like the U.K., where the attackers can face up to 10 years in prison. I also certain don't find it funny. Dayofswords 08:38, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Yep. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 05:21, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

The IRC is not the wiki, this proposal violates policy - Supporting this is a blatant violation of our policies. you simply cannot ban her from the wiki for this, any more than you could ban a mookie for pking you in game.(Just a random example). Wiki blocks/bans can only occur for wiki violations.--Degenret01 05:22, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Then have Evil change the proposal to an IRC ban. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 05:24, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Consensus overrides all policies. In this case, their actions in the IRC has made users unable to trust them to continue editing the wiki. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 05:27, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - I don't think that this is worth a block. But maybe if you could better explain to me what negative effects it had on your site? I didn't quite catch that part. - [Pharos] 05:25, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

It doesn't open. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 05:28, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Basically, she crashed Evil's homework assignment which was being hosted by his own sever and also [somehow] disabled him from uploading/downloading using some Mozilla program. 222 talk 05:33, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Oopsies. Sorry, didn't see that part under the IRC chat. Support an IRC block. Maybe a week? - [Pharos] 05:34, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Strong support - We've given her a chance, and she has taken it... to further abuse editors who had done absolutely nothing to her. The extent of her actions should be enough to allow us to use the common sense method and disregard the policy. Frankly, her abusive, abrasive and may I say sadistic - at times - methods of "communicating" with people has convinced me she does not deserve any more chances; I've been on the receiving side of the aforementioned enough times to know. 222 talk 05:29, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Per Degen, I do not support the blocking of any individual based on actions off of the Wiki, even if it's related only in name. Now for the actions taken by Ikin weren't the best in any given situation, it would be best to not have this as a joke. However, when I think of botnets, my mind goes to the Low Orbital Ion Cannon used by Anonymous (group) for taking down sites like that program is meant to do by that group of individuals. If this were for an IRC block, then I might support it if more hostility is displayed. Ryan PM 05:30, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Multiple instances of hostilities have occured before this; if I kept logs of my IRC conversations, I'm sure I could provide at least 3 more examples. 222 talk 05:37, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Wow 3? --Farming cape (t).png Ikin Talk 05:40, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Overall Support - I am not at all affiliated with the IRC server for this wiki. However, I definitely support wiki-based. I have watched this person be a complete jerk to people on this wiki - from brand new users with single digit good-faith edits to people with thousands and green names. I don't like to get involved with these kinds of things, considering I don't know hardly any of you outside of the wiki, but I felt the need to voice my views on this matter, as I have wanted to for a long time (but decided not to considering someone else already tried to on her talk page...). Also, like Cook said, if the logs are true, well that's just the cherry topping on the sundae. (: sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 05:42, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Comment -- I'm mad. This is my server. Dayofswords 06:49, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

umadbro? --Farming cape (t).png Ikin Talk 07:24, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Those kinds of glib, remorseless comments will only serve to dig you deeper into this hole. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png
[23:17] <Dayofswords> so come, tell me what terrible thing evil did that made to want to take down my server
[23:18] <Megan> Well it's not that
[23:18] <Megan> everytime I see a server
[23:18] <Megan> I want to take it down.
[23:19] <thebrains222> wtf?
You really want this kind of user to stay on the wiki? Dayofswords 07:31, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Absolutely, she has made a lot of useful edits. What have you done?--Degenret01 07:41, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Are you implying that because dayofswords has not made many edits, that his opinion does not matter? That violates some kind of policy... but I'm not sure which... kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 07:43, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Please show me where I said he doesn't have the right to an opinion. I answered his question, and asked one of my own.--Degenret01 08:00, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Well, it does look like you are implying that Dayofswords' opinion isn't as valued compared to Megan because she has more edits here. 222 talk 08:18, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
"An editor's status, popularity, or in-game experience does not affect how they are treated and how their opinion is "weighed" in a discussion." The argument "I have a right to my opinion" is very weak here. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 10:39, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Support IRC ban, pending wiki ban - Ikin's behaviour in the IRC was obviously unacceptable, and if it affected Evil in the real world, that's easily deserving of a ban. However, I have yet to see any adverse behaviour on the wiki itself, so I don't see why Ikin should be blocked from editing yet. Real Nub 07:37, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Changed to Support IRC and wiki ban per Cook below. Real Nub 10:00, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Support IRC ban - I think a 2week irc ban would be good since this was so unacceptable as it is affecting people irl. A lot of people seem to have problems with her personality, although I usually find her to be not to bad. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 07:47, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - If anything, I want at least an IRC ban; a complete ban, not just for 2 weeks, forever. She can run he bot on a different channel for all I care. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 08:20, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I should also point out that a Denial-of-service-attack is illegal in the United States[1] where Evil's brother's server is located; it is highly likely to be illegal in Norway as well, which is where Ikin lives. 222 talk 08:40, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

- Stalk much on your free time? --Farming cape (t).png Ikin Talk 08:44, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
It says so on your userpage, and you know it. Stop with the idiotic comments. 222 talk 08:45, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
This link appears to deal exclusively with govt computers and such, not an individuals pc.--Degenret01 09:01, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
I was given that link by Cook. 222 talk 09:03, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Btw I've never said I ddos, I shell boot which isn't the same as ddos. --Farming cape (t).png Ikin Talk 09:08, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Because of the precedent we made in Forum:Wiki vs CC Blocks, I think that any IRC block should carry over to the wiki. ʞooɔ 08:47, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

I'm not so sure. That forum was about blocking UTP violators from the community, not the wiki. I can't see any ways to violate UTP while editing, other than flaming people in discussions, or leaving spiteful comments on talk pages. So far, I haven't seen any of that, so IRC and CC ban, sure, but wiki, not until vandalism or similar is uncovered. Real Nub 08:58, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
The rule goes both ways; if you get banned from the clan chat, you get a wiki block. If you get blocked on the wiki, you get a ban from the clan chat. Anyway, Megan did do some flaming on the wiki last month, but I'm not concerned with that. If someone is blocked from the clan chat and they are active here, they will be blocked from the wiki. In this scenario, how is the clan chat any different from IRC? ʞooɔ 09:04, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Fair enough, issue a CC ban as well, which I said above, but as far as I know, one incident of flaming isn't enough to merit a wiki ban. What happens in the IRC/CC should stay in the IRC/CC, and not affect the business on-site. If I could see several incidents, then sure, block her from editing, but she's made plenty more good faith edits than anti-UTP ones, as far as I can see, so allow her to continue editing, but block if she starts being seriously inflammatory. Real Nub 09:47, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Correct me if I'm wrong, but should we really be excusing a user's bad behavior on the grounds of their good contributions? --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 09:50, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
CC block in unnecessary as she doesn't go on there. And "What happens in the IRC/CC should stay in the IRC/CC" is no longer true due to the result of the thread I posted. Anyway, I wouldn't call illegally shell booting a website "flaming". And this is certainly not the first time she has broken rules; she continually harasses certain people in IRC, continued to update the Grand Exchange after warnings, uploaded cache files after being warned not to (I'm not talking about the music files.) And I think we established in blocking Parsons that your number of good faith edits should not be taken into account. ʞooɔ 09:56, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
I had no idea Ikin did all that D: Real Nub 10:00, December 2, 2010 (UTC)


Support - First of all, I should note that it is an enforcement of consensus to block her from the wiki if she is blocked from IRC as well, as per Forum:Wiki vs CC Blocks. That consensus does affect IRC as well (though not clearly spelled out, it was the intention), so if she is blocked from one, she must be blocked from both unless there is clear consensus otherwise. As for the proposal itself, I was originally going to oppose. However, when I read the dialogue, I was through shocked. This degree of trolling is unacceptable and should never result in anything less than a block. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 10:24, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Support - She has got to take serious things seriously, and stop being immature and trolling. My 1337 b0w1337rng3r|Talk Har har, my wikia bird, T-Hawk! 10:34, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Another Comment - This is a home server, running from my house on a old dell small form client computer, it is far from a full server(like rack-type). It could never handle a DDoS attack, it could hardly handle firefox. From the logs in the something extra part, she thought it was a school server which if she had attacked they would have known in great detail, and apparently the attack was running for little under an hour, they probably can't just unplug the internet to it like I did(they have exchange(email), file, and web servers, all vital for staff and students) and certainly would have an investigation(as it would clog all incoming/outgoing connections with the huge bandwidth use). As a community college with state connections, this would have not been taken lightly. And one last thing, you may remember this as the same server that ran the teamspeak 3 and teamspeak 2 servers for months as a wikia off-site service, if this had still been in use it would have affected all the users on the wiki who used teamspeak. I know I'm not a huge editor here but if she is taking serious computer network attacks lightly, with assumed knowledge of attacking a school, well what other serious things will she do.Dayofswords 11:08, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

If you thought that this was a school server, Megan, that's absolutely fucking despicable, not to mention incredibly illegal. That you would attempt to take down a server at a college for shits and giggles is really screwed up. ʞooɔ 11:18, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
As a school computer I meant another computer. --Farming cape (t).png Ikin Talk 14:04, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
...What? I fail to see how a "school computer" is synonymous with "another computer". School computer = School computer. Another computer could mean school computer, but it doesn't work the other way round. Real Nub 17:50, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

support - ikin, really, you should really be nicer to people. i know you can code better than me. That is no reason to keep saying it to me. Also if you do !quote (number) in the irc with JSBot in it, one of them will say "joey can't code" or something. I find this quite offensive(looking at the discussion/fight we had a day before) and i want you to remove it, ikin. now. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 11:47, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

if you had been a active user of my bot you would see that it's gone. --Farming cape (t).png Ikin Talk 12:03, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Who said anything about JSBot? JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 12:28, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Support blocking JSBot and Ikin - I really hated her attitude on irc. --中亚人/中亞人 (Chinasian/Jeffwang16) 跟我谈话 13:02, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Uhm, yea... Have I even seen you on the last months? --Farming cape (t).png Ikin Talk 14:04, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Strong support - The first thing I thought of when I saw the thread was 'another thread to oppose that proposes to block a good faith user!'. Well, the conservation transcripts above prove otherwise. I most certainly do not trust someone that takes servers down 'because it's fun', and she should be arrested in the first place. bad_fetustalk 15:50, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Strong support - I wish some people would piss off with the policy crap. RS:UCS... He/She is a hazard to the wiki, they could just as easily DDoS this wiki and leave it on a high bps for a few days or weeks. Shades of "Wikileaks" anyone? RSN: Warthog Rhys Talk Completionist's cape... Coming soon. 17:36, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

What policy? The only policies mentioned have been UTP, in the arguments for blocking Ikin  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Real Not Pure (talk).
The IRC is not the wiki, this proposal violates policy - Supporting this is a blatant violation of our policies. you simply cannot ban her from the wiki for this, any more than you could ban a mookie for pking you in game.(Just a random example). Wiki blocks/bans can only occur for wiki violations.--Degenret01 05:22, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
This RSN: Warthog Rhys Talk Completionist's cape... Coming soon. 17:59, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Actually, Degen, it violates nothing. Consensus overrides anything, or having this discussion would be pointles in the first place. You don't want Ikin to get banned? Sure, but don't go confuse people. bad_fetustalk 18:18, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Support - *Sigh...* That was too far. Suppa chuppa Talk 17:43, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Support - From what I have read, this was clearly a malicious and possibly illegal attack for fun, and she appears to have shown no remorse for the damage done by her actions. There is no way to justify such actions to me. Is it really safe to let her loose on the wiki if she's capable of that, despite her good contributions? What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 18:00, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Strong Support - She just maliciously attacked Evil1888's site for fun, not because anything personal as can be seen in the evidence above. She also takes everything as a joke and doesn't care about peoples feelings, and even if we block her, she would surely take it as a joke, just as she took my debate with her, luckily Chess cooled things down before I just cracked up and became aggressive on Ikin, cause she is simply a jerk and should be blocked for 2 weeks, from IRC and wiki, but I bet she wouldn't take it seriously, obviously.My 1337 b0w1337rng3r|Talk Har har, my wikia bird, T-Hawk! 18:17, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Malicious acts like this cannot be tolerated. I see no reason for anything less than an infinite IRC ban and at least a month here. --Aburnett(Talk) 19:36, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Strong Oppose - Honestly? I'm not going to pretend like what Megan did was right, but you guys are willing to violate a policy to get rid of a helpful contributor because of something in the IRC. That's just sickening. Under no circumstances should she be blocked on wiki. IRC is debatable, she needs to learn that actions have consequences, but I doubt a block will accomplish much. HaloTalk 20:20, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

It's not violating a policy. It's actually enforcing the consensus of the thread we've all mentioned. And while she is quite helpful at times, her mistakes are piling up. Anyway, I don't see how we can trust her to edit (let alone run a bot) after shell booting what it seems she thought was a school. ʞooɔ 20:36, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
This was done in IRC. She has had problems on wiki in past yes. But she has already been blocked for those. HaloTalk 20:38, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Consensus overrides all policies, and we are getting consensus here and furthermore we already have consensus as to why off-site actions can lead to a wiki block here. Consensus dictates policy and all policies are subservient to consensus. You're essentially suggesting that policies can never change because using consensus to override/change policies is bad. Furthermore the fact that she has already been blocked for things and still continues to act negatively strengthens the argument that she should be blocked. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 20:42, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
The fact that she can be a helpful contributor and often is weakens that argument. Policies can always change, but there is no consensus here to change it. HaloTalk 21:06, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

RS:NOT exists for a reason - Consensus doesn't override policy (Proposition 8 being ruled unconstitutional is a nice real world example) unless the community also agrees to do away with the policy. You can't use UCS to get around this one either, and the wiki vs cc blocks discussion doesn't involve IRC. If Ikin is blocked from the wiki based solely on this IRC evidence, we are knowingly ignoring and one of the fundamental policies that has held this wiki together for so long. Yes, what Ikin did is inexcusable, but blocking someone using MSN evidence is bloody ridiculous. I can say whatever I want on MSN because it has absolutely nothing to do with the wiki. If someone copied and pasted or faked an MSN conversation I was in, would you try to get me desysopped/blocked? You can ban Ikin on IRC, but that's not in our jurisdiction. This isn't even a matter of support and oppose. This is the community being ignorant of a policy. How disappointing. Andrew talk 21:34, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

And which part of RS:NOT are you referring to? Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 21:39, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
No, we are not violating RS:NOT. In case you haven't noticed, the block policy was amended per Forum:Wiki vs CC Blocks to say that any user blocked for RS:UTP violations will be blocked from both the CC and the wiki, regardless of which the violation actually occurred on. The IRC isn't the CC, granted, but it's still an offsite feature like the CC is, which is what the forum was discussing. I don't see a problem with applying the same principle approved in that forum here since what she did was obviously a UTP violation. --LiquidTalk 21:42, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Let me just pull out some excerpts from RS:NOT#..._based_off-site for you....strict wiki business should stay on the wiki.. . . . Likewise, though some of your fellow editors may be RuneScape friends or instant messenger contacts, binding decisions must be made solely using discussion on the wiki itself. References to outside discussion that may be relevant in an on-site discussion are acceptable, but they may not be used as the basis for a consensus or decision by themselves. The only pieces of evidence provided in this discussion are IRC and MSN logs. This discussion is in blatant violation of policy. Andrew talk 21:45, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, right, so the forum I mentioned above is nonexistent and you're going to use a technicality to violate its spirit to try to get Ikin off? Seriously? --LiquidTalk 21:46, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
I would hope that you aren't ignorant enough to assume that. As I already said, the forum you mentioned does not cover IRC. You insult me by accusing me of trying to "get someone off" on a technicality. I am defending the wiki's policies, just like any defense lawyer that gets a case dismissed (even if the defendant did commit the crime) on a technicality is defending the United States Constitution. Extreme comparison, yes, but the same principle applies. If we do away with our policies every time someone does something bad, we're already lost. I have also already mentioned that Ikin should be banned from the IRC channel, so of course I'm not interested in letting anyone get away with anything. Andrew talk 21:49, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
UTP violations, as opposed to all other blocks, deal directly with how users interact with other members of the community. If it has been proven that they have disturbed members of the community to the point of being given a block, it's only logical to completely remove their communication with the community while that block is in effect (aside from the privilege to appeal the block on their talk page, which would be removed if they abuse it). Otherwise, they will be able to continue to do whatever it was that resulted in a block, defeating its original purpose.
User:Stelercus on Forum:Wiki vs CC Blocks
You have got to be kidding me. Ikin has "disturbed members of the community to the point of being given a block" (on the IRC, which no one seems to dispute). Therefore, "it's only logical to completely remove [her] communication with the community while that block is in effect". That is the logic presented. That completely applies here. If you are going to nag on the fact that the forum was using the CC as an example, then that is horrible technicality abuse. We are a wiki. We operate on trust. There is a reason we do not have judges with the ability to dismiss cases based on things like this. We use COMMON SENSE, not frivolous legal issues to resolve conflicts. The policy you mentioned for keeping things separate was thrown out in the Wiki vs. CC block thread for UTP violations. This is a UTP violation. I really don't see how you can try to use this technicality to get her off, especially when the reasoning provided and approved fits perfectly fine in this scenario also. You are not defending the wiki's policies by doing this. You are defending a frivolous technicality. --LiquidTalk 21:58, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - This is ****ing ridiculous, I wish that all the opposition would stop humping off their policies and USE THEIR COMMON SENSE!!! This is like referring to a gunman, he goes out and shoots someone on purpose, for nothing to do. The person lives, life goes on. Would you let this gunman come into your public shop or bar? No you wouldn't. What Megan did was an illegal activity in general law. You CANNOT go out and DDoS someone like that... To heck if you've made 100,000 edits that have formed the basis of this wiki. If you go out there, and INTENTIONALLY cause trouble just like that at that type of scale. I don't care if it over rides this policy and that policy and if you are going to go out there and start bumming off that policy to make yourself look cool and smart compared to everyone else...

Comment - First of all, I don't know how many times I've said this already, but I'll say it again: I am not trying to "get her off." Now that we've established that, you're damn right I'm defending technicalities, because sometimes it's necessary. Wiki vs CC blocks was very clear in its wording. Stelercus only proposed that CC and wiki blocks be linked, and when it was closed, you yourself reiterated that, Liquid. There is absolutely no room for interpretation there. Wiki blocks result in CC bans and CC bans result in wiki blocks. Nothing in there talks about "off-site bans" that result in wiki blocks or wiki blocks that "can result in bans in other places connected to the wiki" or anything of the sort. Now, RS:NOT was not thrown out the window with that proposal. It still applies to everything else, and it does clearly state that IRC/MSN evidence can not be used as the sole basis for a wiki block. If there was any way for this to work like wiki vs cc blocks, I would support Ikin being blocked; however, it clearly does not, and until that time, I will continue defending what I know to be wiki policy, and twisting my words to make it sound like something else only insults me. Andrew talk 22:10, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

IRC/MSN evidence is not being used as sole evidence for this thread, we know that Evil's brother's server was crashed through direct actions of Ikin and associates. 222 talk 22:13, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

While never clearly spelled out in the proposal, IRC blocks were implied by the following clause (which appears to have already been quoted). "If it has been proven that they have disturbed members of the community to the point of being given a block, it's only logical to completely remove their communication with the community while that block is in effect (aside from the privilege to appeal the block on their talk page, which would be removed if they abuse it). Otherwise, they will be able to continue to do whatever it was that resulted in a block, defeating its original purpose." Either way, RS:UCS prevails.

That's what I said fifteen minutes ago. Way to steal my words back after I stole them from you. >=( --LiquidTalk 22:17, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
That was negated by this: Keep in mind this means that not only will UTP violations on the wiki apply to the chat, but UTP violations on the chat will apply to the wiki. Even then, this only applies if the UTP violator in question uses both as well as what Liquid said when he closed the proposal. And as I've already said, UCS can't be applied here because there's nowhere for it to be applied. RS:NOT and wiki vs cc blocks are worded very clearly. Andrew talk 22:20, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
I disagree. I see no reason to differentiate IRC from the clan chat in this context, and the reasoning that IRC was not included in the Wiki vs CC blocks thread is insufficient. Leaving it out was more likely an oversight than intentionally attempting to separate IRC and the clan chat. The point of the proposal was to establish a standard by which UTP violators are stopped from bothering anyone else through media which this wiki controls. For all intents and purposes, IRC = clan chat. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 22:18, December 2, 2010 (UTC)
Not when it's worded that clearly. If you would like to start a new proposal allowing IRC to be included like the CC is, go for it. That would quickly gain support, including from me, and then this proposal would pass. Andrew talk 22:20, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

We have proven that Ikin has disturbed members of the community to the point of (well, assume that she will be) a block, therefore, we must completely remove their communication with the community while that block is in effect. If you're going to get so tied up in the fact that the proposal was focused on the CC rather than the IRC, you will find that she (Ikin) will be able to continue to do whatever it was that resulted in a block, defeating its original purpose.

Stelercus even explained his statement that the it is implied that any chat form was covered by the proposal. --LiquidTalk 22:26, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Was the IRC server used for the attack? If the IRC server was used in any way for Ikins attack on Evil, whether to find its location or to send the attack itself, I would consider that important. But if she only announced/bragged about the attack in the IRC and did not use it for the actual offense, then she only violated UTP in the IRC. I notice some people have problems with technicalities being brought up. Following protocols and procedures keeps us from being a mob of squabbling children.
