Something tells me that somewhere in our many-named friend's Wikipedia history, the phrase "I have deleted your article on your band/employer/self, ~~~~ Gwen Gale" appears. I can't think where I get that impression.
Im sure there's a tale behind the obsession with her being a lesbian feminist.
But is she a good-looking
I thought the issue was that this Wyss person had been banned, and is thought to be editing (perhaps competently) as an admin Gwen Gale. If true, that's a problem, as when you're banned, you're banned. It's the person
who is banned, not the account, as many decissions have made clear. Did I miss something?
There is a hole in the block policy which we've discussed, which is that an indef block which nobody is willing to overturn is considered a "community ban" only by virtue of the fact that nobody has been gutsy enough to overturn it. It's not the same as a ban-ban, which is pronouced like an excommunication by Jimbo or ArbCom. In theory, if somebody had been indef-blocked under one name came back under another and was not noticed, indeed even made it up to admin status, that would NOT be a "community ban" because clearly the community would be seen to be perfectly willing to let the person edit under the new name, showing that the problem with behavior did not translate over the change, and thus ipso facto no longer existed. Yes, this is block evasion to change names and start over, but on the other hand, if nobody notices for a long time, or notices for reasons which have nothing to do with behavior, does that not constitute evidence that a "community ban" is no longer in effect?
