He had all the worst nodes of the day as well as week, month, and year on Tuesday (at least). A combined vote deficit of 804.

Thanks, that is confirmed as a new record. I see six howlers posted on Mon Mar 26 2018:
which makes Tue Mar 27 2018 the only confirmed date where all four categories (Day, Week, Month, Year) of worst nodes were held by the same perl monk. Further complicating this Guinness Book of Perl Monks Records, accidental anonymous posts occasionally self-sabotage record-setting attempts.
Update: here are some of the recent suspicious "anonymous" posts:
Update: and some older ones:
Update: He's done it again, all worst nodes of the day, week, month, year on May 22 2018. Given there are currently no shocker blocker posts by others, he might continue to dominate all categories ad nauseam.
Update: After sensationally resigning from Perl monks (My last post on PerlMonks ...) on July 24 2018, it was suggested he may have returned as TheloniusMonk (however, examining the content of TheloniusMonk's posts indicates to me that he is not sundial).
Update Oct 2019: sundial is back after making his last post on 24 July 2018. After a break of nearly a year, he returned on 29 May 2019. He's made 8 official posts between 29 May 2019-26 Oct 2019 (plus a couple of suspicious anonymous posts).
And the suspicious anonymous posts seem to be increasing.
Curiously, in Perl Unpack Cobol Binary File and Fields (May 04 2020), after making six anon replies, he switches to posting as SunnyD.
Back to posting anonymously...sigh...
Anonymous barrage of nine consecutive node-ids on 21-Nov-2020:

Dec 28 2020: Hmmm, no anony posts since Dec 20 and now two in a row as SunnyD. Is he about to give up the anony posts? (Also, who is Leitz? - he never posts any code, and reminds me of a toned-down SunnyD, though I strongly doubt he is a SunnyD alias).
4 Jan 2021: Back to anony posting it seems:
11-Feb-2021. Massive anonymonk activity and confusion with multiple anonymonks posting, one anonymonk criticizing SunnyD-anonymonk ... while other anonymonk (WookieeJeff) getting offended thinking the barbs are addressed at him! And finally haukex (and bliako)) stepping in to try to calm things down a bit.
Oh my: a barrage of "anonymous" responses to possible "SunnyD" anony posts. Confusion reigns.
Perl Monk discussions provoked:
I'm getting bored with this nowadays, too many anonymonks, getting too hard to tell who is who:
As for the other side of this coin, the same monk holding all Best nodes, I've never seen it done for Day, Week, Month or Year ... though in the glory days, I remember Ovid and brian_d_foy dominating Best Nodes of the Year with their many blockbuster nodes.
The reputation ranges of the top twenty nodes of some well-known monks are:
It was much easier to get 50 upvotes 15 years ago.
