Oliver D. Smith
Oliver D. Smith (aka oliveratlantis, Atlantid) is a socially inept, asexual, misanthropic loner and geekazoid (he blogs about Greek mythology) better known for his campaigns against Kiwi Farms and Encylopedia Dramatica. A massive wikisperg, Oliver has over 100,000 edits on Wikipedia on hundreds of sockpuppets and has a history of getting into online arguments with people (such as Rome Viharo and Mikemikev). The latter led him to be put on Kiwi Farms as a lolcow.
In 2016 Oliver sided with conservative yellow journalist blogger Vordrak (Samuel C. Smith) to close Kiwi Farms. The alliance of Oliver and Vordrak, with left wing feminist Margaret Pless has been called strange bedfellows; Oliver employs the mind-set enemy of my enemy is my friend. It also makes sense Vordrak "the witchfinder general" and Oliver "the puritan" would unite: they both resort to threats, intimidation and trying to silence their opponents, usually accusing them of paedophilia (or more often in the case of Oliver's prudishness, as "perverts" or "fornicators"). Oliver has worked with Nate Spidgewood in Taking Down ED.
Asexuality and sexual abstinence
Oliver identifies as asexual or on the gray spectrum between asexuality and heterosexuality (showing only occasional interest in sex). For this reason he rationalizes his attacks by seeing himself as a puritan, calling all his opponents "sex maniacs", "perverts" or "sex pests". Oliver greatly admires John Harvey Kellogg, not for his cereal but for his celibacy and bizarre masturbation-prevention techniques such as electrical shock. Vordrak is not a fan of Kellogg, criticizing his work as "sexually abusive" and "pseudo-Victorian paternalism".
Over this disagreement about Mr. Kellogg electrocuting people's genitals, Oliver posted to Vordrak aon his blog:
John Harvey Kellogg was promoting extreme abstinence (sexual, alcoholic, food), for the latter – vegetarianism and semi-fasting (only two small meals a day.) Of course his anti-masturbation methods are now known to be wrong, but what he was saying was quite common during the Victorian era. We probably will disagree on this, but I admire him because of his conviction in these things – he never had sexual intercourse (all his children were adopted), he was a life-long vegetarian and teetotaller. Very few people today can say they live his clean and respectable lifestyle.
Vordrak wasn't impressed, choosing not to respond to Oliver.
- Greek mythology.
- Crusading against porn.
- Misanthropy (hating nearly everyone).
- Collecting British flags.
- Lara Croft/Tomb Raider.
- Violent video games such as Hitman (despite a massive prude, he has no problem with violence).
- Obsessively editing wikis.
- Writing hit-piece articles on his foes.
- Creating sockpuppets.
- Being Vordrak's lackey.
- John Harvey Kellogg.
—Oliver D. Smith
In 2006, Oliver, then about 15 years old, posted on the TombRaiderForums (as the user Nude Raider as a patch for the PC game Tomb Raider or its sequel Tomb Raider II, making Lara Croft fully nude. Oliver is known to get very defensive over this since he sees it as tarnishing his reputation against pornography. He has complained he didn't expect someone to dig up his internet history from over 10 years ago, dismissing his love of naked Lara Croft as "teenage immaturity". Oliver still gets into a fit of rage whenever he sees someone quoting this comment, therefore it is posted here in big quotation marks.) that he had once downloaded
Boglins and Army Men
Oliver has many manchild-traits, including toy collecting. This includes mini plastic Boglins (as well as the larger hand-puppet variety), the similar Monster in My Pocket franchise and Army Men toy soldiers. He is also a fan of the old Army Men series of games on PlayStation. In the 1999 PS game Army Men 3D, there's a mysterious key on the 2-player mission "Clean Up This Mess" that no one knows how to use, supposedly it unlocks a secret area on the level. Oliver decided to make it his life mission to figure out how to use the key. In 2006, from the TombRaiderForums, in 2009 he did the same at Wikipedia, on another forum in 2012, again at Wikipedia in 2014, posting as ArmyMen3D.
Weaponizing wikis and anti-porn
Oliver has a large number of edits on Wikipedia (BookWorm44 is of one his many sock-farms) and Rationalwiki. He primarily uses these wikis as weapons, in the sense he creates attack articles on his perceived foes. He might try to disguise what he is doing with "neutral" edits on Greek myth, science, history etc., but he is responsible for dozens, if not hundreds of shoddy hit-piece articles on people that he has debated somewhere else on the internet, or who he thinks have offended him, even if inconsequentially. It was this peculiar online behaviour that made Oliver discover Encyclopedia Dramatica, since he has used this website in the past to create articles on his enemies too. However, after an attentive ED sysop realised what he was up to — all his articles were flushed down the toilet.
In 2016 Oliver was questioned about all his attack articles on the forum Kiwi Farms; Oliver responded he has a clean conscience on the basis he is writing about "evil people" (perverts, frauds or scammers) and that he is on a noble mission to warn the world about them. Most though are innocents/nobodies he's been engaged with in petty arguments over the years. When using Encylopedia Dramatica, Oliver complained to ED admins about pornographic adverts. He later took the credit for their deletion, but requested for porn images to be removed from all individual articles, writing they are "horrible"; Oliver's anti-porn crusade won no support and he was ban-hammered:
Well done guys, but...
You got rid of that horrible porn advert. Cheers. If you really want to impress me, you can delete porn which appears on individual page entries. Just someone with their top off, or breasts is fine, but it gets silly and nasty when you see penis, vagina or other things like that here. People don't want to see this. I mean what happens if your parent see that? RaiderFan 17:57, 25 April 2016 (EDT)
—Oliver has admitted to only using ED for Google traffic to get-back at his enemies
Oliver's relation with ED sysops turned sour when he tried to dictate to them on more sock accounts how to run the website; he wanted Encylopedia Dramatica to stop recording internet drama for the lolz and become a serious "watch-dog" website to monitor perverts (in Oliver's view anyone with a sex life) and criminals. The last straw was when Oliver attacked an ED admin for creating the Anal Prolapse, Covercat, and Necromouse articles; Oliver called these "obscene sexual images" and also reported an ED sysop to the police. After ED admins grew tired of Oliver's hissy fits and demands, he became blocked on-sight whenever he made another sockpuppet (easy to detect; many have names related to Lara Croft or Greek mythology).
Eagle-eyed observers may notice the feud between Oliver and Mikemikev over race and politics that started at Metapedia, has more to do with strategy, than doctrine. This is because Oliver's views on immigration are hard-right, while Mikemikev's far-right and there is not much difference between them, only their strategy. Oliver argues for a "voter-friendly" form of ethnic nationalism, hence he is eager to reject or downplay anti-Semitism, Holocaust denial and racism which he sees as demonizing his cause since these views are unpopular. Instead Oliver's main focus is culture or ethnicity, rather than race. Mikemikev in contrast rejects Oliver's moderate electoral-palatable approach, considering it "cuckservative" or "Zionist". Mikemikev will openly post anti-Semitic attacks on Jews on forums, use Neo-Nazi symbols, deny the Holocaust and cling to scientific racism. Oliver created an on Mikemikev for holding these extreme views. To the amusement of Kiwi Farms users, both Oliver and Mikemikev accused each other of being Antifa. Oliver thinks Mikemikev is a "fake nationalist" and agent provocateur because his views are too extreme, while Mikemikev thinks Oliver's views are "cuck" and anti-racist.
Mikemikev: infiltrator, or just mental?
The question that needs to be asked: is Mikemikev a real racist extremist who is mentally deranged, or is he an infiltrator (say who works for Hope not Hate) who is online deliberately with the intention to make nationalism look as stupid and violent as possible to turn the public away from it? It should be remembered Michael spams dozens if not hundreds of forums with the same genocide non-whites, crude anti-Semitism and holocaust denial... banned on many forums. Oliver D Smith
After the big battle between Mikemikev and Oliver (that continued on dozens of websites) became noticed by Kiwi Farms, both ended up compared to the Three Stooges for their everlasting bickering and buffoonery; the third stooge was rather unfairly an ED sysop (JuniusThaddeus) who was simply trying to record what had taken place. Oliver's feud with Mikemikev began in 2013 on Metapedia, but spread onto Rationalwiki and Wikipedia (2014-2015). Mikemikev made the mistake of joining a forum to create a lame personal army thread against Oliver. Since Mikemikev apparently first did this, Oliver used this to justify his extreme response that spilled all over the internet. All of Oliver's and Mikemikev's combined shit-posting, autism and trolling got logged at Kiwi Farms and both were milked as lolcows.
At the beginning of February 2017 Oliver deleted his blog on Mikemikev and said he had moved on, ceasing any further communication with him. There seems to be truth in this since Oliver has ignored Mikemikev's attempts on a sockpuppet to bait him into responding at Rationalwiki. Mikemikev still though obsessed with Oliver followed him onto the talk page of Rome Viharo's ED talk-page and has also created a thread on Oliver at the ED forum, causing one user to tell him to get a life.
—JuniusThaddeus who regrets encountering Oliver
Oliver formerly considered JuniusThaddeus his "ally" since he was using him against the Neo-Nazis from Metapedia like Mikemikev, but JuniusThaddeus eventually had enough of Oliver's manipulation and shenanigans, writing most of the ED article on Oliver. JuniusThaddeus never expected Oliver to then turn on him and follow him onto other forums and wikis calling him a "pervert" for his edits on ED pages with porn, creating an attack blog on him, badgering him non-stop to delete his article/re-write it to his liking (nitpicking at details), and just be a massive pain-in-the-ass. Oliver also hypocritically accused JuniusThaddeus of defaming him, while at the same time writing his own hit-piece articles at Rationalwiki. After several months, JuniusThaddeus threw in the towel, saying he just wanted some "peace and quiet". Because Oliver kept intimidating JuniusThaddeus, what was written about Oliver changed many times since he kept complaining (see , , and ). Oliver's ED article was deleted no because sysops kept restoring it (against Junius' wishes), but a compromise was reached to re-write Oliver's article.
GethN7 (who as an admin at All The Tropes had discovered Oliver's vandalism on the Rightpedia entry) wrote a JuniusThaddeus is "no angel by any means, in this case, I can say for sure Oliver Smith is definitely the devil." In response, Oliver targeted GethN7 and made another enemy, setting up another holier-than-thou .in defence of JuniusThaddeus, concluding that while
Oliver D. Smith tries to attack me again, for being a Christian who has looked at porn, and my rebuttal
Oliver D. Smith, a sadly hate filled young man I've covered here before, has recently found it appropriate to try dirtying my name by, LE GASP, telling the world I've seen pornography, even though I'm an open and admitted Christian [...] I have never hidden the fact I've looked at pornographic material. The X-rated portions of the Bible aside, I have seen all sorts of pornographic material for a variety of reasons (and some I wish I hadn't, but it's too late to turn back the hands of time). I run a site dedicated to various types of media and their writing components, porn is one of the topics that comes up. I've reviewed anime and video games with pornographic content, either because I wanted to evaluate their merits as media or on behalf of others who were interested, and I've seen stuff ranging from vanilla softcore porn pics to gross, pornographic shock videos and images because I've read websites like Encyclopedia Dramatica. [...] In conclusion, I would like to say I pray for you, Oliver. You obviously have a lot of hate and bitterness within you, and I fear, stained as my own soul is with sin, yours is in as much danger if not more, and while I may be no saint, please don't lose yourself to sin as well, as even if I am already damned, I hope you will not follow me on the road to perdition.
Oliver scored an unexpected victory over GethN7 when Kiwi Farms was deleted (see below); GethN7 removed his blog posts on Oliver to avoid "innocent people out of the crossfire" (fearful Oliver and Vordrak might contact his family members). However, to his credit Oliver in response deleted his attack blog on Geth and both went their separate ways. Oliver still though continues to harass ED sysops.
Oliver was involved in the temporary deletion of Kiwi Farms by creating attack blogs and bombarding the owner Joshua Moon's family and their employers with emails, until Moon's mother was fired from her job and the website was taken down. Oliver filed a legal report (here) with Google so they would block/de-index the URL of his Kiwi Farms thread from their search-engine and reported Kiwi Farms to the SPLC for "hate speech". Apparently Oliver did not realise Kiwi Farms calling him a "sex pest" and "porn addict" was a joke to ridicule him; Oliver's asexuality and anti-pornography activism was known to the forum, but he took everything said about him literal. Oliver sided with Vordrak to shut down the Kiwi Farms and succeeded. Like Oliver, Vordrak complained when he was called a paedophile not realising this was done to mock him since accusing other people of paedophilia is all he does. After Oliver started working as Vordrak's lackey to attack Joshua Moon, he also got trolled at Kiwi Farms by labelled a paedophile when its obvious he isn't. Taking the internet far too serious, Oliver's interpretation of events was that he was "harassed" and "defamed". In a news article he is quoted as saying:
Oliver Smith told me he got a Kiwi Farms thread started about him for his editing habits on Wikipedia. The thread eventually escalated into some Kiwi Farms users falsely accusing him of being a pedophile and even a terrorist. Smith claims that Moon was personally involved in the harassment. Smith says he contacted Moon’s mother’s employer, a Realty company, and told them her paycheck was being used to fund cyberbullying. Moon’s mother was fired soon after.
Earlier this evening, I received an email from Oliver Smith, a Kiwi Farms victim (no relation). I had been in touch to check the progress of a complaint he had made to police. His reply was chilling. An email from “Dynastia’s Apprentice” and tracing back to Joshua Conner Moon’s email service, lolcow.email had been sent to Oliver, a Hertfordshire MP and a local school. Subject: “we will stalk little sue denim at grove road school” (I have changed the child’s name throughout to anonymise them). Grove road is a primary and nursery school. The email demanded that sites and articles critical of Moon’s website Kiwi Farms be taken down or a named child, “sue” would be stalked, presumably in line with official Kiwi Farms policy as set out below.
The email also mentions:
oliver smith in hertfordshire united kingdom. we hate him and his article about our leader josh. http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Joshua_Conner_Moon.
Since Oliver had created an article on Joshua at Rationalwiki.
Viharo clashed with Oliver on a number of wikis and both of them are known to attack each other. Oliver hates Rome Viharo because he claims Viharo's website about him contains defamation, lies and half-truths. In 2017 Oliver showed up on Viharo's talk page and wrote a statement:
Shadow of Rome is a PS2 game (some of my previous names are PS1/PS2 games). It has no reference to Rome Viharo.
Also, we've already established I'm not Dan Skeptic and I never created the Rome Viharo Rationalwiki page. I had no communication with Rome Viharo at Wikipedia, none whatsoever. This nutcase however is still saying "Oliver Smith the notorious Wikipedia editor I encountered in my involvement in a ‘wiki war’ on Wikipedia". Unbelievable.
Another of his delusions is that I post on the forum "international skeptics". Not me. I've never posted there and am not even part of the "skeptic" online community. Can Viharo get anything right?
I've already rebutted everything he's already said; his whole website about me is defamation.
Finally about drugs. Viharo is smoking a drug in the photo. I never said anything about cocaine, but he's a drug user for sure.
Oliver points out one of his user-names Shadow of Rome is a PS2 game and provided evidence. Viharo however falsely alleged it was a reference to his first name and Oliver was "creepy" for using it.
