You know what, though? Delicious and Fred will eventually be unblocked, but Ashley will still be the Wikimedia UK trustee who put his bare, chained-up ass out on the Internet. That will be true forever.

Delicious carbuncle was only blocked for a few hours. The blocking admin relented. (They still haven't undone their rev deletions, yet.) I expect that Delicious carbuncle will be blocked again shortly. wink.gif

Guess who said "WR is quite a hostile place and it can be quite unfair"?

First, Fae had Delicious carbuncle blocked:

Now, Fae had "Fred the Oyster" blocked:

Either there is a risk of future harassment by these editors, in which case the blocks should have been indefinite, or they are punitive rather than preventive. How many guesses do you need to come up with the right answer? biggrin.gif

I'm for option 3: just a circling of the wagons to protect a prominent member of the new cabal. dry.gif

Lets not forget the naked kid photo on his user page. One to be kept in reserve ... or sent to the Daily Mail.

Looks like Fae is picking a fight with Pieter Kuiper.

Fae confuses Pieter Kuiper with Peter Damian.

Note: I'm not "canvassing"; I'm taking note of what I believe to be an emerging pattern in Fae's behavior. The latest issue that Fae brought up appears to be so trivial (perhaps meriting a revert and an edit summary, but not a talk page warning) that one has to wonder whether Fae is confronting Pieter for the sake of having a confrontation.

Van Haeften strikes me as putting on a false image of being feeble and cowardly. I don't know what the word is that would describe that, but it's what I'm seeing.

It is a time-honoured WP tactic to attack anyone who is making you look bad, in hopes that they will be blocked or told to stop "interacting" with you. Pieter Kuiper has raised a number of issues with Fæ's image uploads that have called into question Fæ's understanding of copyright. There has also been a suggestion that OTRS volunteers are uncritically accepting claims from anyone with an email address. I am shocked!

Pieter shouldn't have brought the issue to AN/U. Fae's responses on AN/U are better than the ones Fae offered on Pieter's talk page. This might blow up in Pieter's face. Pieter should've had the issue small and confined to his talk page. Escalation doesn't work.

So you're saying we should all head over there to make comments about Fæ? And blocked and banned users should create sockpuppets for that purpose? And that any comments there critical of Fæ should be attributed to WR members?

I believe that you're joking, but here's a serious answer anyway for visitors who might be confused or who might not be catching on: No, I'm saying that Pieter should've kept this conflict contained and between Fae and himself, which is the exact opposite of advocating interference. Since Pieter went to AN/U, we now have cries of "stalking" / "wikihounding".

The pattern I've observed has continued:
