Hi folks. I will sign my name on "the list" today as an official wikipedia review member. Today I was kicked off Wikipedia by OrangeMike allegedly for having chosen a username not allowed under WP rules. The real reason was that I told IrishGuy that I would out his identity as he was disappearing my references on behalf of Indymedia and Peter Gelderloos. Previously, IrishGuy was trying to kill Termanology's artist page.

Wknight94 followed up by banning my ip for threatening to out IrishGuy.

OrangeMike, after banning me from editing, placed two requests for further edits on an article I created on Da Bulldogs a long time ago, essentially endangering the page for future deletion. In my view this constitutes scraping: Kick off the user, block his ip, start killing his articles.

I must add that OrangeMike is with Industrial Workers of the World (IWW).
