British anti-pedophile activist, Richard Weiss, formerly Wikipedia User:SqueakBox (born in the early 60s) currently resides in Spain, having expatriated himself to La Ceiba, Honduras for some time. He has been an "anti-pedophile" edit-warrior on Wikipedia.
He has been employed by the Weiss family business, TV Genius (tvgenius.net), for whom he ran a data management centre. He has toured Central and South America, has been (or is) married, with at least one child.
Richard has used Wikipedia to promote an anti-pedophilia agenda. He uses multiple accounts and even posts welcome messages to his sockpuppets. He has made edits relating to homosexuality, using the sockpuppet Skanking
It is likely that Richard uses software that allows him to log in with overseas internet service providers. Various checkuser requests on his other accounts have shown that most of his sockpuppets are operated from geographically unrelated ISPs - notably in the United Kingdom, where TV Genius is based. The sockpuppets' log-in times, stylistic betrayals and support of SqueakBox edits clearly show that they are operated by Weiss himself. In many cases, strings of SqueakBox edits have been shown to be perfectly appended to strings of sock edits. The now banned Pol64 (who he claimed to be a well-connected police officer) is a perfect example of this. Despite the case for massive abuse of the system, administrators continue to deny the blatant dishonesty of this already penalised sock-puppeteer, who is valued by both anti-pedophile editors and Perverted Justice - who he cites as his inspiration. On the other hand, his repeated accusations of pedophile-related activity towards other editors, blind, borderline-hysterical bias and general rudeness have been dealt with - albeit with an unusual level of lenience.
