He must think someone's watching him.

Maybe it's the Bead Belt Fairy?

Saibo threatens Tarc with a ban, but disguises the threat as a joke with a strategically-placed emoticon:

After Tarc dares reply after Saibo gave his or her threat, Saibo follows through on his or her threat to have Tarc banned from Commons:

Have you taken notice of images such as Hmong-Kinder.jpg? A german dude took that photo while on vacation. Pretty sure the subjects didn't give any consent, and the same goes for their parents.

Hmm, good catch there, Mr. Text... Obviously these kids are not white people, so most Wikipedians wouldn't actually see them as having any such rights. Instead they'll claim it's all the kids' fault for walking around outside without any clothes on while there are tourists present.

A particularly slimy example of an admin with a less than virtuous agenda.

The whole thing is just absurd, esp the "locked isn't banned" argument.

Saibo never actually articulated a block reason for me, just vague-waved a hand at some diffs of me saying things he didn't like.

Well he sort of has to explain how it is that in 2003 someone with his same name was saying that they' had been in an American Jail for 2.75 years for child porn, who's post signature links to a website, that Beta_M associated himself with on his user page in 2005.
