Well, I have made mistakes too. Corrected them of course when I
realized it was a mistake (except for one, which I'm going to do
immediately after this post), but I have written them. And I have
removed material from pages too. Probably the one who put it there
found it relevant, otherwise s/he would not have put it there. So
block me.

So are you going to call for our blocking too?

No, of course not. He is saying it's a Van Kalken. Everyone will
realize that there is more than one of them and that his criticism is
just to one. And also, you earlier said it's an issue of privacy.
Disclosing your full name would be more breaking privacy than just
your last name, no? If someone calls me 'Andre', I assume people are
clever enough to realize that I am meant, and not every Andre on the
whole planet.

And you're completely right if you would just ask your real name or
family name to be kept out of this. But you're not. You're asking for
Muijz to be blocked because of his trolling and vandalizing behaviour
of naming your whole name. Just remove the name and add a *friendly*
notice that you would not like him to do that. That would have been a
lot more effective and a lot less conflictuous than what you have done
