Well, keep us posted on how this turn out because we really care.
Or, better yet...
But in case anyone is still reading this stuff, Mr. Fred here is pro-porn, while Mr. Ottava is decidedly anti-porn. So, naturally, there is conflict. Unfortunately, Ottava's strident and divisive denunciations of everyone who opposes him have made him persona non grata
in most of the venues where Wikipedia issues are discussed, including this one, so his only remaining option is to apologize (however sincerely or insincerely, though I suspect sincerity matters little to the average Commons admin) and hope they take him back.
However silly and petty the whole business ultimately is, they would be wise not to underestimate him. Many of them claim that he can be "easily reblocked," and therefore there would be little harm in what's being suggested. But while that might be true from a purely technical standpoint, from an internal-political standpoint it's simply not the case.
