Block Bot - James Billingham's Rat King Sperg Factory and Twitter Autoblocker

There's a ton of work that needed to be done this week with all the rat king threads popping up and all these new cows appearing fast. They just keep growing and growing and many potential ones are probably going to be coming from this Block Bot thing, which appears to be its own kind of rat king and something that Laurelai and his crew hate or have had some kind of infighting with. What is Block Bot and why is it so important? Our good friend and pet sperg Vordrak actually wrote a whole article about what it is and recently, it's been found that Sarah Noble, a notorious cow and major Wikipedia sperg, actually created the UK version of this thing (thanks to a discovery made in that thread by @Hellfire).

http://matthewhopkinsnews.com/?p=3100

There's a lot more on his website about Block Bot and all the drama that's been involved in that boogaloo, but I'll quote some of the best stuff.

http://matthewhopkinsnews.com/?s=BlockBot&submit=Search

What in the absolute fuck?

In this video the Witchfinder exposes #TheBlockBot creator James Billingham, who claims to be against trolling but admits himself on his own website that he deliberately engaged in the practice. Billingham also claimed that one site he joined contained, to use his words, ‘Kiddy Porn’ and whilst he trolled them about it he did not report it. Even if the material was in fact legal these revelations reveal Billingham as a vile, morally bankrupt hypocrite.

http://matthewhopkinsnews.com/?p=1123

When I was doing some searching on M.A. Melby, who has a thread in Lolcow under the rat king tag, I came across a whole list of Block Bot admins who are involved, a lot of them are really spergy from what it looks like. It's not the same exact website that I saw the list, but this one actually has even more names to check out than that one. It's from Slymepit of all places.

You cannot tell the source of a block, so no. Right now, you're number 2639 on the Twitter block bot's "Level 2" naughty list:http://www.theblockbot.com/sign_up/foll ... level.html

I'd suggest to block the blockbotblockers. Makes it harder for them to see your tweets and to get you suspended. Current list:

I was told that Vex0rian is actually one of the major block bot spergs and I think this thread would be a good way to talk about him in some way, because he's been with this project since the very beginning and there have been Tweetsaves of some of his dumbest shit that he has said before.


Tweetsaves:

https://tweetsave.com/vex0rian

Here's Vex0rian talking with a person of interest by the name of FakeRobotGamer, who is an Alison Rapp fan and has left a lot of really crazy tweets on their profile. They look like a lot of fun to me. They are known to be the 7th most hated redditor ever.

Meet Anna, AKA @fakerobotgamer
The 7th most hated Redditor Worldwide

Let’s say you were raised in a heavily religious background, let’s say you are upset with men, scratch that, let’s say you openly state “I hate males” & you are also lesbian. Lets say that you also espouse racism and genocide. Let’s say you actively encourage people to embrace such views and you even have subreddits dedicated to such ideologies. Let’s say that you have a well documented hateful & traceable online track record. Let’s say you apply for a job, and, when they find out about your hateful online track record they avoid hiring you (a conflict-prone person, a liability) but you try to get them fired because they are “bullying you” & you even have the gall play the victim by storify-ing them. Let’s say that the reddit poll of the “10 most hated people on Reddit” is featured on a “little” high circulation site called the “daily dot”. Let’s say the idea is confirmed by the massive audience at the daily dot. Yes, it is unanimously decided you are the 7th most hated redditor worldwide.

Impressively hateful, isn’t it?

With this impressive online CV, @fakerobotgamer got the job. She immediately became my chosen target




So yeah, these are the same people that will get you suspended from Twitter if you do anything that they don't like. This is why they are so infamous on Twitter. Discuss.

The inconsistency of the application of Block Bot is something that makes it an incredible tool to use. It is basically "I don't like you so my friends can't like you" and being an admin with this tool means having power in the circles these people run in. For example @FakeRobotGirl is funny as fuck and I love their posts, but to say it is consistent to leave them unblocked but to block Lady Gaga for not being "sensitive enough" is silly as fuck.



Expect all KF twitters to eventually find their way into Block Bot.

A bit more on the tool.

You can review the entire tool here.
http://www.theblockbot.com/

Level 3: @theblockbot #Block #Level3 please block these annoying people +nym +etc

Level 2: @theblockbot #Block #Level2 please block these unpleasant people +nym +etc

Level 1: @theblockbot #Block #Level1 please block this nasty twit +nym +nym +etc

Process for addition of new blockers: contact one of the admins and if they think you are suitable, have a track record of proposing new blocks that are subsequently added, they will ask the other blockers. If no other blocker has an issue with this person being proposed then they’ll be added by that admin. Blockers are expected to not add any contentious blocks without either talking to other blockers on Twitter DM or ideally mentioning it on the Facebook thread about the block bot.
http://www.theblockbot.com/?page_id=2

The admins for the tool are below. If you notice we have threads on two already.

I'm familiar with James Billingham and the forum he's talking about. It's called the Slymepit and was involved in the whole Atheist+, Freethought Blogs nonsense. Basically a bunch of internet refugees exiled for wrongthink against the holy doctrine of feminism created their own forum to talk shit about the places they were excommunicated from. Ironically (if you accept Billingham's moronic narrative) created by an actual female scientist as opposed to the humanities major dangerhairs spouting pseudo-science who think they should have all authority. Unsurprisingly the only child porn to be found was posted there by Billingham himself. He goes by the handle of Oolon on the web, apparently taken from the dragonball pig, which is appropriate given his appearance.

FakeRobotGamer/RobotAnna is part of the Rat King, too. It was sort of touched on in that blurb in the OP, but they were Laurelai Bailey's "even more radical" appointment for replacement mod of r/LGBT when that subreddit was starting its implosion.
FRG is funny as hell, though.

There was a list of tweets published by "block bot" in 2013. ctrl+f "RT" and look who they are Re-Tweeting. It is like a who's who of lolcows and Rat King. Like its either people we got threads on or people we are about to have threads on.

http://heathen-hub.com/Last_3200_tweets_from_The_Block_Bot..html

Block Bot has been criticized for a number of reasons both based on technological and legal reasons.

Being blocked on twitter by a bot such as this can mean problems for those who are blocked because they could be investigated by twitter and possibly have their accounts suspended. Billingham aka @oolon has said that he feels that those who are Level two and three will avoid a suspension but he isn't Twitter and those promises are not based on any empirical conclusions of testing Twitter algorithms. For this reason, some people could be found to be spammers or abusive.

From Twitter in a Skeptools article:
While manually reviewing every Tweet is not possible due to Twitter’s global reach and level of activity, we use both automated and manual systems to evaluate reports of users potentially violating our Twitter Rules. These rules explicitly bar direct, specific threats of violence against others and use of our service for unlawful purposes, for which users may be suspended when reported.

Other problems include a lack of a paper trail and not understandding what the levels mean. The below article spells this out well just go down to "The Block Bot"

https://skeptools.wordpress.com/2013/08/01/block-bot-twitter-report-abuse-ool0n-atheism-plus/

@oolon is p unstable himself and should be considered for a thread. below is an example of him being exceptional on the online.



Ultimately, @oolon wants to create a nicer safer web for trannies

Circles within circles, wheels within wheels.

One of the most vitriolic attackers of Ophelia Benson (a cow that I am watching) when she was chased off FtB for being a TERF was M.A.Melby.

Basically Melby pulled the pin on the hand grenade by asking Benson directly "do you think trans women are women?"

The reason this is pertinent to this thread was that Benson ran to Cathy Brennan's Gender Critical facebook group and asked for support in how to (disingenuously) counter the attack and was caught doing so.



what Melby has cut off from the bottom of that post (and what I have spent the last hour unsuccessfully trying to track down) is the reason Benson is so scared of answering the question directly.

She explains that the questioner is one of the creators of the block bot and leaves unsaid what every SJW knows, that they created a monster which was going to eat them all one by one.

Whatever did happen to the block bot? Big plans to improve and expand, outsource to IT professionals, but has seemed to died a natural death. Pity as I only got to a paltry level 3.

So we have a possible duplicate.

New user claims @oolon/@jd_billingham (https://twitter.com/JD_Billingham/with_replies http://archive.li/CU67L) is also Kilgore Sprout @theonlysprout
https://kiwifarms.net/posts/3859966/

I'm not really sure but anyway I found James' dox:

Birthday appears to be 27th February https://twitter.com/SmallStonesTall/status/571273494660550658

I can't really see any difference between @oolon and Kilgore Sprout, but there's no smoking gun.

They do tweet each other some

https://twitter.com/TheOnlySprout/status/1017512299916136454

Note that Kilgore runs https://twitter.com/unblock_list
https://twitter.com/TheOnlySprout/status/1034443340681568256

You are a liar Kal, I run the bot that monitors all public blocklists on Twitter - @unblocklist - so I know a bit more about this than you do.

Blocking the BB devs and their spies won't prevent you from getting blocked. You are just playing a game of whack-a-mole because these people use different accounts. (Their supposedly discontinued accounts, like the vex0rian one, are still online because they still use them despite what they say.)

I think a better strategy is to block the following three accounts:

https://twitter.com/BBlevel1

https://twitter.com/BBlevels1and2

https://twitter.com/BBlevels12and3

I haven't been able to confirm yet but these appear to be the three accounts that BB censors use to feed people directly into their BlockTogether blocklists. The theory is that by blocking these three, they can't block you because they can't feed you into their blocklists.

If you are already blocked by the BB bunch on BlockTogether, you won't be able to see one or either one of these, depending on which level you have been blocked. If you are blocked at level three you won't be able to see either one of the three.

Another account you should block is this:

https://twitter.com/block_review

This is the account the BB censors use to decide whom to block. The reason this account is locked is to prevent you from seeing what triggered your getting blocked.

You can also block https://twitter.com/TheBlockBot but this doesn't seem to do much. People who have ended up on a level 3 block can still visit and see https://twitter.com/TheBlockBot which is extremely deceitful and is meant to prevent you from being able to tell whether you've been blocked.

I came across a whole list of Block Bot admins who are involved, a lot of them are really spergy from what it looks like. It's not the same exact website that I saw the list, but this one actually has even more names to check out than that one. It's from Slymepit of all places.
This list is old and outdated. I have made a new list based on this one, since some of these censor maintain multiple accounts. I have also highlighted the accounts that have been suspended by Twitter to show what hypocrites these self-appointed censors are that they violate the Twitter ToS themselves:

Many people are wondering who this vex0rian person is, so here are some pointers to help you along:

The vex0rian Twitter account was registered in 2011 but it seems to first actually become active online around 2014 during GG. That when people begin retweeting and mentioning vex0rian's tweets

https://www.themarysue.com/twitter-users-mad-about-gamergate-block-bots/

This guy called Isaac was posting many of vex0rian's tweets on Facebook in 2015, 2016 and 2017:

https://www.facebook.com/isaac32767/posts/10153809717333523
Isaac Rabinovitch apparently knows vex0rian personally because he seems to know that it's a woman (could be a trannie though, you never know with these assholes):
https://www.facebook.com/isaac32767/posts/10155562065878523

Isaac also retweeted @vex0rian's other account @vex0rian_ebooks as far back as 2015 https://www.facebook.com/isaac32767/posts/10153643451238523

Jacob is a censor who thinks that having an appeals process (like Twitter has, the very platform this hypocrite is using right now) is "boundary violating": "I've thought a bunch about building appeals into Block Together. Worried it would encourage boundary violating."

Jacob was in touch with James, Olivia and Vex on Twitter as far back as 2014

BB dev Lynn Cyrinn was tweeting & communicating closely with Vex throughout 2015, starting in the summer of 2014. They stopped tweeting at eachother in the winter of 2016.
