G'day Maggie,

The process for rescinding a community ban is as follows: convince an 
administrator that your original ban was wrong.  Since it has been 
reviewed many times by different, independent administrators and no-one 
has yet unblocked you, I think it's safe to say we *all* agree you 
should not be here.

An alternative is to convince us you're very sorry and that you will 
never again repeat the behaviour that led to your block, but will 
instead prove yourself to be a valuable member of the Wikipedia editing 
"team".  Your posts to this list have proven exactly the opposite.  Many 
people, including one (Peter Mackay) who was himself banned for a year, 
have told you that your actions here are just making things much harder 
for yourself, but you refuse to believe them.

Remember: *you* are the one asking for something from *us*.  You have 
done your best to ensure we have no reason to give it to you.

What benefits would mediation bring, exactly?  You were warned 
repeatedly, and chose to disregard those warnings.  The community 
decided it wasn't worth our while to follow the dispute resolution 
process.  This was perfectly within policy.
