This thread is about White Cat wanting to get Jack Merridew on
simple.wikiquote and simple.wiktionary becuse he feels stalked due
that JM always votes contrary to him and sometimes he edits non
mainspace pages where Cat also edited.

He went to stewards channel earlier today demanding we take measures
about it. After 4 of us refused, he ended up putting on ignore (as
usual) pretty much anyone who spoke and started namecalling werdna
(who is precisely working on global block) for not agreeing with him.

Global blocking won't be used for petty personal disputes. And for
what I gather, it will work only on IPs.

And no, "being blocked on a wiki" doesn't automatically grant the
right to request same blocks in all other wikis
