No wrong was ever found in the party who did it, and I was the one who ended up abused by Wiki instead - by admins blatantly swanking that there are no rights - at the end of the affair this exposure of identity began.

See also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don't_ask,_don't_tell. I feel
sorry for you that some Wikipedians behave so disrespectfully. In
general, people on Wikipedia love to contribute to the largest
knowledgebase on earth, but then there are some that just generally
love to act like pricks. However, there is no rule forcing you to out
yourself. Getting yourself a throwaway webmail account and a fake
identity is dirt simple. You didn't.
