Intentionally reverting edits to factually inaccurate versions. Guanaco 02:02, 28 Aug 2004
Guanaco needs to be dealt with, and my Request for Comment was ignored, so what is my next
step? The arbitration process will do no good, since it will take three or four months to
get any thing done, and I don't expect anything profitable to be done anyway, and in
that long period of time, Guanaco will have allowed and encouraged Michael to post all
kinds of stuff (he had three pages of postings in the last three days), in direct
violation of Jimbo's hard ban.

I am troubled by User:Guanaco's behavior here.
He does have a valid point that banning Michael seems to not work. He
only comes back with new accounts or edits via IP, and does the same
thing. It may indeed be easier to "contain" him to a known account or
two and then just pick up the pieces.
HOWEVER, I don't think it's Guanaco's place to unilaterally decide
that this should be our new policy. He is still officially banned and
bannable on sight. If we want to alter this decision, let's discuss
it in a place of record (here, or on Wikipedia).
I am not unilaterally unblocking him, but I am not prohibited from doing
so. My decision to unblock Michael's accounts is supported by both Danny
and Theresa Knott and falls within the "in other appropriate cases"
guideline for unblocking. The blocks do nothing to prevent him from
logging out, creating a new account, and then editing a different page.
He can be blocked on sight, but it is clear that he shouldn't.
