[WikiEN-l] Unblock request - Critique on administrators is no personal attack

[[User:Raphael1]] (Raphael Wegmann) has literally been droning on
about this issue for MONTHS. He is extremely singleminded about this
to the point of making his issue with the displaying of the
Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons very disruptive.
It is very much a pity to see Raphael1 (Wegmann) bring his disruptive
tendencies here to the mail list.
The following bit of his last letter is extremely demonstrative of his
one sidedness here.
>Take a look yourself:


>A single contribution can't be much of editwarring, can it?
>At least you definitely can't violate the 3RR by it.
What Raphael1 (Wegmann) fails to mention is that one of these IPs is a
confirmed open proxy and the other two were part of image blanking
barrages by IP hopping vandals.
Raphael1 has had no qualms taking matters into his hands in terms of
altering the display characteristics of the cartoons on the
[[Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy]] article repeatedly
himself and has been repeatedly blocked for it (thankfully):


Raphael1's latest disruption (for which he's been  EXTREMELY correctly
blocked for a week over) was the creation of a list entitled
"Persecutors of Muslims" that listed every single admin who ever
blocked so much as an IP address of those who vandalistically removed
the images (which he subsequently spammed messages providing links to
a group of select editors -without ever even informing the admins
listed on his user page-):



Raphael1's actions have inspired copy-cat editor who've gone so far as
to impersonate him in efforts to remove the images (never with any
attempt at consensus). See:
The way Raphael1 is going, much like the extremely disruptive editor
that he recently tried to defend, Resid Gulerdem (see the Admins
causing death of Wikipedia letter thread) and
he'll probably be permanently blocked before too long as well.
Please move on and be less disruptive and help make Wikipedia even
better so that those familiar with your neverending "discussion" won't
first think of the expression "don't feed the trolls" the moment your
name pops into their heads.
