I didn't know who this was until one of his articles was brought to my attention as I've made threads on Atheism + lolcows before. The article went into the infamous Block Bot used by a lot of those SJWs involved in that boogaloo, which there are already several threads for in CW and in this subforum. The more significant find from all of this is someone that should have had a thread here a long time ago.
@Dynastia explains part of what his deal is.

@ @dollarhuviya, when he first contacted me i called him a spastic and said he's lucky he doesn't have a thread already and he was so chill i doubted we could make him chimp out
Vordrak might be one to watch if you're looking to fill out your 'ridiculous spastics to laugh at' on the pro-GG side a little more. After getting salty on wikipedia he dropped a massive tl;dr blog post accusing them all of being pedophiles. He also created a subreddit dedicated to rewriting wikipedia in favour of gamergate, an endeavour that almost nobody else gives a shit about.
Since being sitebanned from wikipedia, he's now attempting to rally gamergate to support a petition to block the entirety of wikipedia throughout the United Kingdom, which is possibly the most monumentally stupid, salty and fuckretarded idea I've ever seen from either side of this shitshow, unless Geordie Tait was actually serious about building a rocket and launching gamers into the sun.
Oh, and he has an ED page because at this point in the happenings, who the fuck doesn't?
He's also tied to RationalWiki drama too, as Dyn pointed out in my RationalWiki thread.
His ED page has some good material for starters. The website linked above is also spergy as hell and worth looking at.
Here are some of the highlights from it and some of his comments over in the KotakuinAction subreddit, another place that he frequents.
You can catch him ebegging a little bit in his rant against the Block Bot in the following cap:
I spotted some drama that had been brewing between him and Wikipedia and his own blog censorship, which ED also archived.
There was some more background info on this guy that I found important enough to reiterate.
Matthew Hopkins, Witchfinder and sycophant
If it wasn’t Grant Shapps himself and it wasn’t someone doing it under his direction, who would be motivated to make the edits that Contribsx made? Obviously the person controlling the account had a high opinion of Shapps and closely shared his political views. So possibly a colleague, friend, or employee of Shapps. Definitely an admirer. If you’re looking for a Grant Shapps admirer, look no further than the blog of Matthew Hopkins. In his 2013 profile of Shapps, Hopkins describes him as “an incredibly hard working (sic) politician”, “one of the few honest MPs in Britain”, “a saint”, and claims that “many of the Conservative Party’s grassroots members speak of him as a future Prime Minister”. In a later piece, he says “Shapps is accepted by all and sundry as a fantastically energetic and hardworking constituency MP”. By reading through a little of Matthew Hopkins blog, one can quickly see that he likes Grant Shapps, the Conservative party, GamerGate, and video games. He also expresses an intense dislike of SJWs (“social justice warriors”), feminists, and liberals. He also singles out Wikipedia editor MarkBernstein for specific mention, even going so far as to make a 14 minutevideo about him. Showing that he is a generally odious person, Hopkins deliberately and spuriously associates Bernstein’s name with pedophilia. Hopkins is obviously familiar with Wikipedia.
Matthew Hopkins is Vordrak
On June 7th, during the Arbitration Committee case against Richard Symonds, a new Wikipedia editor named Vordrak posted a link to one of Matthew Hopkins’ blog posts on the case’s talk page. Vordrak makes it clear that they are the same person as Matthew Hopkins. In fact, their Wikipedia user pagelinks to the website. That post on June 7th was their first edit on Wikipedia, although the Vordrak account was created two months earlier, on April 1st. Vordrak also admitted that he was not a Wikipedia beginnerand had an earlier account.
An account named Vordrak is also a member here at Wikipediocracy. Almost all of their posts have been to promote their blog posts. The one useful thing they did is tell us that they are also Vordrak on Reddit where they are a moderator of one of the GamerGate forums. There we learn, unsurprisingly, that heagrees with a well-known men’s rights activist that transgender people are actually suffering from psychiatric disorders.
When he got his ass banned from Wikipedia, he also made the following threats as a result:
ORLY? Well, alright then ...
I have archived Gamaliel's comments about his proposed reasons for blocking me here. I am not entirely sure he has thought it through but invite him to reconsider. I am not entirely sure he has thought it through but invite him to reconsider.
Under the latter circumstances [me as an outsider] I am free to say what I like and to reveal the real world names of people I would not otherwise have named.
There's some other fights that this guy has had before too that ED goes into very well, but I want to draw attention to his Twitter, which might have some other interesting shit to post here.
Here are his accounts that I know of, including his Reddit account:
Blog (again): http://matthewhopkinsnews.com/
Not really much in terms of content first glance from his Twitter:
Something, something, something about harassment at the bottom:
There's probably more shit where this came from but I just really wanted to give this guy a thread already. It seemed long overdue at this point.
