Brutal Wikipedia Warrior of the Week: Ctjf83

This week I'm late because of Memorial Day.

This week's Brutal Wikipedia Warrior of the Week is User:Ctjf83, a supposedly gay user. But make no mistake, he's no limp-wristed pushover, but one of Wikipedia's fiercest, most brutal warriors. His current mission is to break the spirit of User:BrianGriffin-FG. BrianGriffin-FG has a passion for Family Guy and actually thinks Wikipedia can become a true reference work (instead of just giving the appearance of such). Ctjf83's mind games are working, and in April, BrianGriffin-FG let out an outburst which prompted Ctjf83 to issue a WP:CIVIL warning. On the face of it, the warning appears well-meaning, especially to those unaware of the sophistication of the mind games Ctjf83 has played on BrianGriffin-FG. BrianGriffin-FG will either quit Wikipedia on his own or let out such an outburst of uncivil words towards his relentless tormentor that he will be banned from Wikipedia. If such an outburst happens, it will seem completely unjustified and unreasonable, and that's precisely the evil genius of many of Wikipedia's most brutal warriors.

Ctjf83 aspires to be an admin, and he's been getting some "coaching" towards that goal. But it's just another game: there is no doubt Ctjf83 will eventually become an admin and score much greater victories over his most hated enemies. The stalled nominations are just theatrical grandstanding, and that bit of theater is as gay as Ctjf83 gets. See the courage actual gay people have to be who they are offline! Fakers like Ctjf83 are disgusting.

Possible Ctjf83 sockpuppets include SatyrTN, Red Pen of Doom, and Grsz11, who's been blocked and unblocked a few times. However, the similarity of that last username to Ctjf83's main account casts some doubt on the sock theory, because brutal warriors are generally smart enough to make the usernames of their socks so different no one suspects a connection. Or maybe Ctjf83 intends to pin Grsz11 as someone else's sock in the future once he can get no more use out of that account (for example, the next time it gets blocked).
