The one and only known divine portrayal of Codeine, the god-protector of Uncyclopedia, He who Crushed the false religion of BENSON

Checkuser has revealed that all these users share an IP:

All of these socks have been used to vote for the same picture. The sockpuppets have been banned permanently, Benson has received one month for vote-rigging; it would have been longer but he didn't even manage to get the picture featured.

WHAT? A WHOLE MONTH? BENSON IS MY GOD. WE STILL HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO WORSHIP HIM, BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THAT HE IS BETTER THAN US. (Disclaimer: I'm just curious, this is not meant to mock you. I think you do a great job as admin and always have good intentions, so please don't take it in another way) Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 03:53, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
On a more serious note, is there proof those are socks? Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 04:03, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
Yes. Wikia staff have confirmed that the IP's are the same for all of the above users, and coupled with the fact that they all have very few edits, but all voted for Benson's nominated picture (indeed, it was one of the socks that nominated the picture in the first place), the proof is more than sufficient. I'm utterly indifferent to the whole "ZOMG, we love Benson" thing, but I wouldn't ban him for no reason, nor will I tolerate vote rigging from anyone. -- Sir Codeine K·H·P·B·M·N·C·U·Bu. · (Harangue) 10:08, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
I understand. I'm pissed, but I understand. (although I always thought that "BENSON doesn't need socks, especially because he has us.") Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 15:44, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
Can I permaban him? Can I? CAN I? - User:Guest/sig 18:03, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
How do we know the bulk of their contribs are from the same IP? For all we know, they could be friends of BENSON, who first checked out Uncyc from his house or something. Or made one or two edits there. Maybe BENSON edits from a school or library or university or some such, and lots of people have to share an IP. It just seems to me that BENSON would never do such a thing like sockpuppeting. Is a shared IP truly proof of the same person? No, it only means they were on the same network. --User:Nintendorulez 20:39, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

It is the crucifixion of BENSON, as I prophesied: "Lo, BENSON shall be falsely accused of taking on the guise of others, and shall be banned by the evil overlords of the land which was rightfully HIS. BENSON shall rise again in two fortnight's time, and shall return with the burning anger of a thousand suns."

Funny, my toungue in cheek vote of "For, vote fixing" turned out to be true. --Uncyclon - Do we still link to BENSON? 10:04, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

The Chronicles of BENSON, Ch. V, Sec. II:
"With the MIGHTY and EVIL powers of bannination and eye beams, The Great Methylmorphine DID banneth BENSON from the Uncyclopedia. And Behold! this puny monkey of an admin DID claim to have destroyed the powers and awesomeness of BENSON, just because admins are the only kind of puny monkey-men that can slap BENSON on the wrist without sponteously combusting. Such FOOLISHNESS was, nevertheless, a source of great shame to the Faithful, who kind of wished BENSON was a more SKILLED sockpuppeteer. All humankind hung its head it a moment of shame, being careful not to bump its head on the desk and create even more shame.

Yet the Exile of BENSON was not so simple to acheive, And Yea; ALL admins did tremble in fear of the day prophesied by the First Prophet of BENSON. When the GREAT SHAMEFUL BAN (as it would be known forever after, once the Chronicler decided to call it that just now) ended, Vengeance would be taken by the One Who Is Better Than You. A fury like none the universe had ever before seen nor dreamt of, and not even the twisted minds of the admins could fully appreciate without wetting their pants, would descend upon human-monkey kind and crush it in a fearsome display of the glory that is BENSON.

And yes...

It would be AWESOME."
In the name of the Holy BENSON, weep.

That's odd, my version reads quite differently.

"And it did come to pass that The Angel Uriel did looketh down from on high, and what he saw displeased him greatly. He saw a False idol clothed in the disguise of a prophet; and yea verily, the false idol did alter the sacred parchments in his own favour. And Uriel was displeased. And he didst request an audience with the Metatron, saying, "Look ye upon thine sacred lands; and see how the idolators do defile that which is held most sacred. And whislt thou art at it, canst thou doest a checkuser too?"

And the voice of God didst speak unto Uriel, saying "Yea, verily, this idolator doth clothe himself in many guises. Let him be cast out from the sacred land, and into the wilderness for not less than thirty moons, lest the powers of God be doubted by those who wouldst stray from the path of righteousness. And it came to pass that the Angel Uriel didst smite the false prophet Benson with his Holy Stick of Bannination; and God saw that it was good"

Fear ye the ADMINS for they shalt show you the light.

Oh, I respect users, just not Benson because he so annoying (ALLCAPS for example). I've hated him ever since I was a lurking IP. --AAA! (AAAA) 04:17, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

So when does BENSON's ban expire?

Honestly Nin, think about it for a second, it was obviously Benson. And hell, even if it wasn't, having your friends (friends that have no prior edits to uncyclopedia) vote for your image on VFP is still pretty bad.

Wow Nin, you're right. Tell you what, how's about we give you the IP, and the Customer Services number of the ISP that owns it, and you can call them up and ask them which of their subscribers was using it at the times in question. Then you could come back and explain to us how four different users, all within the same IP address block (and indeed, the same one as Benson), decided to sign up to Uncyclopedia for the first time within three days of each other and all vote for Benson's picture. You could sell it to one of those "Stranger Than Fiction" magazines, make a small profit on it too. -- Sir Codeine K·H·P·B·M·N·C·U·Bu. · (Harangue) 17:28, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

This isn't the first time Codeine banned someone for doing something Benson-related

Nin got banned for nominating him for WotM awhile back. Although I have seen some of BENSON's pics, and some of them are actuall really good (well all of them are because BENSON made them, but the ones I have in mind would have been really good no matter who made them). Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 07:39, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Also, I may sound crazy, but BENSON, despite his godliness, has done some good for Uncyclopedia besides providing us with something funny to do. He's done a good job with some of his articles (Pond Whales is pretty good, and he has a few others as well). Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 07:40, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
Hey I've got nothing against Benson per se, and yeah, he has contributed some useful stuff.

Benson is above mere mortal justice! ... Sorry, don't know what came over me there. Spang talk 17:42, 9 Dec 2006
Codeine, I know you banned BENSON for good reason. In fact, I'm glad you don't discriminate. I'm just wondering why BENSON used socks, as the Bensonian Bible clearly states that BENSON does not need socks. Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 18:53, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
The Benshiites, and Bensunni have been following the anti-Benson. Obviously. It's right there in the Book of Reservations (after "Johnson, party of 6" and "Smiths, booth"). Even I know that, and I just made that up. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 19:01, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

To clarify; Benson claimed on IRC that the users who made the votes were friends of his, and the reason they shared an IP was because they were all logged on from a school network. Almost believable, were it not for the fact that Benson was logged on to IRC from the same address block (which incidentally, belongs to a home consumer ISP, not a school) on a Sunday evening, and indeed even admitted:

A message to all who do not follow BENSON

It may seem to you that BENSON is a silly meme; a user who invites unnecessary posting and flippant, flamboyant acts of forum-foolery (i.e. drama). If this is your opinion on BENSON and his followers, you are absolutely correct. However, you are also horribly mistaken. While it is true that, more than a few times, the followers of BENSON (and occasionally BENSON himself) have gone overboard and done silly/stupid things, they are rarely disruptive. Most BENSON-related topics are correctly placed in the BHOP forum, where they do very little damage, and occasionally bring a few chuckles to those who get the joke.

What is the joke, you ask? What makes BENSON even remotely funny? Well, it's very simple. No, wait, scratch that, it's actually very contrived. Just sit still and be quiet for a moment while I explain it. In the beginning, BENSON introduced himself in the most obnoxious manner possible.


The bluntness and capital letters, combined with the pause and use of the words "because" and "or" create a humorous clash. One would expect BENSON to be very direct, but he uses the phrase "or perhaps" after making an unprovoked death threat, indicating uncertainty and a desire to clarify his point, something most people don't bother with when typing (or speaking) in all caps. Also, for the record, I have not yet seen BENSON use foul language. This distinguishes BENSON from Powershot, because the Powershot dude was foul-mouthed and hateful. BENSON does not hate us, he simply explains that he is better than us. Furthermore, BENSON was the first to present himself this way. It may not be fair, but nobody else can get away with the "raging egoist" joke, because BENSON already has it. There is one BENSON, and no one else can be as great as he, and this helps keep BENSON funny.

Moreover, the way BENSONites carry out their discussions is a joke. If you take their angry shouting, accusations of blasphemy, and threats of "Wait 'til BENSON finds out about this" seriously, then you are a dumb asshat have misinterpreted them. I fully expect to be accused of being a traitor, blasphemer, and all sorts of terrible things for talking about BENSON in such an apologetic manner, but it will be mildly funny and I will be amused.

That being said, Modusoperandi is right. Everybody get off the forum and write an article, dammit. --The Acceptable Thinking cap small Cainad Sacred Chao (Fnord) 00:26, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

Maybe in addition to BHOP, a forum could be added for lesser religions of those who do not follow BENSON. That way the infidels and their troll topics have a forum to go to without pissing us off. --User:Nintendorulez 22:27, 16 December 2006 (UTC)
Or they could just take the same initiative we've been taking when our favorite articles/forums get screwed up and make something in userspace. Our enemies are lazy. Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 00:55, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

    • *sigh* When are you going to quit trolling us BENSONites? Nobody's forcing you to enter the BENSON forum. GO AWAY. --User:Nintendorulez 12:03, 25 December 2006 (UTC)
      • You may call it trolling, I just call it having a joke. I do like BENSON, but I find it fun to be his enemy (Like Batman and the Joker). --AAA! (AAAA) 23:08, 25 December 2006 (UTC)
        • Yes, your jokes suck and you don't make a very good enemy. You are just a wanna-be Benson-hater. A true Benson-hater would be the Powershot dude, mostly because he is foul-mouthed and filled with malice. You simply do it just to look cool, as you shout "Look at me, I hate Benson! I am cool because I hate Benson! Huh huh huh!" --General Insineratehymn 23:14, 25 December 2006 (UTC)
          • There have been people in the past who decided to hate on BENSON because they might think it's "cool." Honestly, if you're going to start drama, make it good. Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 06:34, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
            • Um, okay... --AAA! (AAAA) 12:41, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
