Yes. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:FREESPEECH

<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:FREESPEECH>Obviously you have your
normal legal rights (i.e. if someone does something illegal, then it is a
courts matter). But the idea that "I have a right to edit Wikipedia" or "You
have no right to do that" is incorrect, because WP is a private website.

If the consensus of the community is to ban you from the project, even under
spurious grounds, there is nothing to stop them from doing so.
