It's very hard for someone like Enviroknot to gain
any sympathy when
they are obviously, blatantly lying. The odds that two unrelated
people would get the same IP address and decide to edit the same
Wikipedia articles one after the other are vanishingly slim. If
Enviroknot is not the same person as KaintheScion/ElKabong - something
I personally doubt - the two of them are very closely related. Yet
Enviroknot denies even that.
Someone who dives into Wikipedia and instantly goes to
article is either a sockpuppet or someone who is responding to a call
to arms by someone else. Someone who instantly knows all the rules
and how to skirt them is not some innocent.
Morven makes some pretty good points. Enviroknot is apparently up to no
good. All the same, that doesn't mean he shouldn't be given the rights to
due process of law before banning him.
