I blocked one username of [[User:DrMengele]], offering to unblock if
he could offer proof of his name and his doctorate ... instead, he
picked another name and (as far as I know) is editing happily. I'm
afraid names of famous Nazis or names close to those are too popular
with pranksters and tend to get blocked on sight.
