[Foundation-l] Stalking on Wikipedia

I found an email today from someone who still cares to keep me updated 
about what happens on the English Wikipedia's "corridors". Since my name 
is mentioned in the discussion, he thought I'd be interested in this. 
There is a user on the English language Wikipedia who calls himself 
"Supreme Deliciousness". He was blocked and warned on and off because of 
his highly political edits and constant war edits. Now he started 
stalking people, apparently I included. Admins fully cooperate with him. 
I wouldn't have brought this issue to the attention of this mailing 
list, unless I had serious suspicions that illegal or highly unethical 
actions are going on.

Many people here don't like my attitude toward Wikipedia. I am not here 
to argue about that. I will have plenty of time to discuss it with 
anyone who'd like to on other occasions. I think my service to Wikimedia 
and its projects, even when I had profound disagreements about the 
policy of the organization, was good enough to give me some credit. Now 
we are talking about unethical, or possibly illegal actions that are 
talking against me and people who, for some unknown reason, are 
associated with me.

Here is the link to the discussion on en-wp: 

The user "Supreme Deliciousness" says: "I have private information that 
I can send to admin through mail that links Drork to these IPs."
I want to receive all such private information about me, so I could see 
whether I should file complaints to my Internet Service Provider or even 
a higher instance, as there is clearly a breach of my privacy. I think 
further checks should be made against "Supreme Deliciousness" to see 
whether he stalks other users. I also want to know why admins take this 
issue so lightly. If people dislike me - so be it, but I, and other 
people involved, are entitled to some protection against stalkers.

Thank you,
Dror K
