=== PART TWO ===
To aid in enforcement of hard bans, Wikipedians may list any user on [[Wikipedia:Petitions
for users of concern]], thus starting a petition. Criteria for listing a user are:
controversial edits and a belief that the user may have been banned previously. These are
subjective criteria and Wikipedians are to use their best judgment. When there are eight
or more Wikipedians in support of the petition (regardless of how many may be opposed),
the user must demonstrate their real-world identity to the Wikipedia Bureaucracy within 10
days; if they do not do so, their editing privileges are suspended until they do.
The Wikipedia Bureaucracy will validate identities using sensible but effective methods,
such as requiring a $1 donation via paypal or personal check, or returning a form sent to
the user's postal address. The identity check will be used to determine whether the
user is previously banned, and will be used to enforce a future ban if one should become
necessary. Otherwise, it will remain confidential.
To discourage misuse, we may want to exempt Wikipedians who have been editing for, say,
more than six months from the process.
