It may not be a foundation-l issue, but it does raise a point: This
whole discussion is about stalking and sockpuppetry and not about
content. Of course, particular content disputes have no place here
either, but the mere mentioning of the name Dror immediately renders
the discussion pointless and that is troublesome.

An "extensive sockpuppetry history" is by itself not a reason for
moderation or for ignoring valid concerns about privacy policy
violations. Even an extensive history of bad edits is not a reason for
any of these.
