And the two editors who could efficiently counter him, Nishidani (T-C-L-K-R-D)
and G-Dett (T-C-L-K-R-D)
, are still both topic-banned, as they have not spewed out a million articles on synagogues.
You know, I doubt anybody cares about editors who only want to create articles on synagogues, and if the topic bans on anybody extend that far, I'd be a bit shocked. I can understand comebody being topic banned from Jewish/Israeli political articles, but not Judaica in general.
That said, Jayjg is nearly a single purpose account (SPA). He edits on Judaica, and that's about it. Yes, he does do synagogues, but who cares? WP:NOTPAPER. I cannot figure out, however, why he shouldn't be permanently topic banned from anything to do with Israeli/Jewish politics, forever.
Jayjg is a good example of the fact that WP's credo to have editors who are interested in creating an encyclopedia, isn't actually true in the case of somebody who has managed to amass some butt-kissing points, as Jayjg has over the years. Most other editors would be topic banned forever after causing his level of trouble, and told they should be glad they are not being banned-banned for being SPA and POV-warriors.
I'm more than a little irritated by this, as I'm sure I myself would have been banned from WP long ago if I'd done half the things Jayjg has. And yet, I'm actually there to build a good encyclopedia (knowing that the content will not be controlled by WMF forever), and have edited in about half the Dewey decimal first-decimal categories. If I were topic banned in any single category of knowledge you like (make it any subject as wide as a college major) I could and would go on happily editing WP as though nothing had happened.
Do that with Jayjg with Jewish politics articles, making it permanent, and I'll give you even odds you'd never hear from him again.
