I see a number of serious problems with this approach.
I believe there is a copyright issue since my taking "good edits" and
remaking them in your name you are guilty of plagiarism. You are not
actually deriving anything as the GFDL allows and you are not correctly
attributing as the GFDL requires. Conversely, you are actually
deceiving readers about the source of the material and misrepresenting
your own authority.
I would assume that if the policy is to role back all edits from a
banner editor that the best solution is to apply the policy and expect
that independent contributors will take up the slack.

This fellow was banned as User:Amorrow for vicious personal attacks
and threats against other users, and again as User:Pinktulip. His
personal attacks have escalated to stalking and threats sent to other
editors' employers. Fairly obviously, he's *remarkably* unwelcome on
anything to do with Wikipedia.
I'm trying to build up a pattern for a strong complaint, and I'm also
rolling back every edit from him I see (making the edit again by hand
if it's a good one). If you see any edits fitting the pattern, please
email me or leave a note on my talk page.
