Recently we've had respite from the Relentless Old Slavonic Etymology Bot, but I think it has been replaced with a few similar looking questions that have recently been posted under a few different similar looking usernames.

Is this the same guy? What happened to Old Slavonic Copy Paster to make him switch to old English bibles instead?

They are creating multiple accounts to get around the automatic question bans. These accounts are all from the past three days!

@Mods, can you please look into IP bans or something like that?

As far as I can tell, he's been working his way through different archaic languages, searching for some divinity in each one. He was doing the same thing on Latin.SE recently, though I think he's been banned now (or at least I can't find any of his questions any more). And now he seems to have spread to ELU.

My guess on his motives would be something to do with Adamic: that's why he's fixated on Middle English instead of Old English, because afaik there's no complete, surviving Bible in Old English.

EDIT: It seems I spoke too soon. He's back with yet another account, this time hyper-fixated on Koine Greek. He's doing the same thing over on Latin.SE again.
