I had a rather different impression of events around Pieter. I remember several times where he got admins on his case because he nominated copyvios for deletion which said admins had uploaded to Commons.

I'm also not sure whether a sarcastic reference to German efficiency in a talk page discussion qualifies as a racist remark. Etc.
