I've already expected you here, since you enjoy discord so much.

[[User:Raphael1]] (Raphael Wegmann) has literally been

I am not the one, who has been unwilling to compromise for month.
It is very much a pity to see Raphael1 (Wegmann) bring
tendencies here to the mail list.
The following bit of his last letter is extremely demonstrative of his
one sidedness here.
Take a look yourself:
A single contribution can't be much of
editwarring, can it?
At least you definitely can't violate the 3RR by it.
What Raphael1 (Wegmann)
fails to mention is that one of these IPs is a
confirmed open proxy and the other two were part of image blanking
barrages by IP hopping vandals.
Well, you fail to mention, that User:188.8.131.52 has fist been
blocked for "removed Muhammad images" before the expiry time has
been prolonged for being an open proxy. And you fail to mention why
you believe, that the other two were part of "image blanking barrages
by IP hopping vandals".
Raphael1 has had no qualms taking matters into his
hands in terms of
altering the display characteristics of the cartoons on the
[[Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy]] article repeatedly
himself and has been repeatedly blocked for it (thankfully):
Yes, I've been blocked myself once for moving the cartoons behind
a link twice in five days.
Raphael1's latest disruption (for which he's
been EXTREMELY correctly
blocked for a week over) was the creation of a list entitled
"Persecutors of Muslims" that listed every single admin who ever
blocked so much as an IP address of those who vandalistically removed
the images (which he subsequently spammed messages providing links to
a group of select editors -without ever even informing the admins
listed on his user page-):
No, the list was not entitled "Persecutors of Muslims", its name
has been "Persecution of Muslims". I am sorry, that I have
to repeat myself: I have never claimed, that any administrator
is a persecutor of Muslims. Instead I've made clear on [[WP:ANI]],
that I consider the persecution a side-effect of their blocking habits.
Furthermore the list has been far from complete, when you already
informed the admins of this list:
Raphael1's actions have inspired copy-cat editor
who've gone so far as
to impersonate him in efforts to remove the images (never with any
attempt at consensus). See:
It's hardly my fault, that anyone is impersonating myself,
but I'd like to mention, that [[User:Raphael101]] was apperantly
a sock-puppet of [[User:Vkasdg]], who has been on my list as well,
since (s)he has been indefinitely blocked for removing the
cartoons three times. See:
Besides [[User:Vkasdg]] actually attempted to convince others
of accepting a compromise:
The way Raphael1 is going, much like the extremely
that he recently tried to defend, Resid Gulerdem (see the Admins
causing death of Wikipedia letter thread) and
he'll probably be permanently blocked before too long as well.
Please move on and be less disruptive and help make Wikipedia even
better so that those familiar with your neverending "discussion" won't
first think of the expression "don't feed the trolls" the moment your
name pops into their heads.
Even though you repeat your "disruption" accusation five times in your
EMail, I'm still not convinced of being disruptive. By contrast I
consider the blocking of editors for having a different POV very
