This is all horseshit. Merkey is mad.
Some of his previous lunacy includes this:
"== Right to Edit Policy ==
This policy states that Wikipedia is a free environment for anyone to edit, in compliance
with the Wikimedia Foundation Statements and Representations made to the General Public.
If you are approached by any group, admin, or body demanding you participate in cumbersome
procedures, RFCs, ARBCOM Proceedings, demand you join their group, or if you are subjected
to threats from users of Wikipedia to block you or remove your right to edit, or demand
any ''' ''consideration'' ''' of any kind from you
in exchange for your ''' ''right to edit'' ''',
they are violating Wikimedia Foundation Promises stated to the General Public in exchange
for your work here and its representations to the General Public in exchange for financial
support from contributors."
He's supposed to be intelligent, so how he keeps on confusing a right with an ability
is beyond me.

Subject: [WikiEN-l] Jeff Merkey threatens to sue Wikipedia and Wikipedians
It's right here in the BADSITE:
Merkey says he's planning on suing the Wikimedia Foundation, the
individual members of ArbCom, and possibly other admins or editors.
He's claiming that he has some kind of agreement (with the
Foundation? with Jimbo? it's unclear) that prevents anybody
connected with Wikipedia from banning him, so that his banning was a
contractual violation; he also claims that banning him from Wikipedia
was an act of stalking or harassment.
Is there the slightest bit of truth to his claims of the existence of
a "settlement agreement" between him and Wikimedia, or is this just
entirely a pile of manure?
