Nope, see the village pump, where I also requested it earlier on 
numerous occasions I have editted my real name out of commentary made by

Could you please come with proof of this? From the other Dutch users I 
am allegedly bullying?

And I am being accused of personal attacks? I take a big offence to this

I did yes, I never denied that. Why do you repeat this everytime we have 
a discussion? I never said I didn't like that tour.

You mean me congratulating you with your birthday after other 
nl.wikipedia users congratulated you? Which you childishly removed 
because you didn't want to be congratulated by me specifically?

As like other users who have either withdrawn from nl.wikipedia 
completely (GerardM) due to problems with you as with Ellywa who left 
for a half year. Not to forget the vengefull articles you wrote about 
other people in Amsterdam including a Dutch writer who all came 
complaining on nl.wikipedia. Nobody really interfered because everyone 
on nl.wikipedia is bullied so much by you that no-one dares complaining.

I am also fed up with your constant stalking of me around the wiki I 
have been complaining about it for years. And it is a habit you have as 
someone else complained about it on a talkpage on the Dutch wiki.

You never Mentioned Walter van Kalken, you said mr. van Kalken which 
could have been anyone of over a hundred male subjects in the world. 
again you have a quarrel with me. Waerth. You even asked me to change my 
username as you didn't want to speak with Waerth again. Which is another 
one of your personal demands. We had someone who wanted to negotiate 
between us. I accepted, you refused! You refused to reach a solution! So 
who is being a hardhead here?

IIt doesn't matter it is Waerth who is discussing with you on the wiki, 
so you have to refer to that name. If I had wanted to be known under my 
real name and would have wanted to be spoken to under my real name I 
would have registered under my real name. It is my right.

>Walter van Kalken/Waerth even violated his own privacy, by using

All Wikimedia mailinglists are indexed by google, which I feel is a bad 
thing, but a fait accompli already.

But no problem Muijz as I have mentioned earlier I have already 
registered my own websites and after I have found someone to help me 
with the mediawiki installation I am gone. I have no time for people 
like you in my life.
