I have been contributing to Wikipedia since 2003. I am still committed to the original ideals of the project: bringing the sum of human knowledge to every person on the planet. What a noble and lofty ambition. Unfortunately, much has gone bad with the governance of the project.
I was indefinitely blocked in August 2009 for posting details of a sock account on my talk page. The details contained no personal attack, and no private information. The block was orchestrated on IRC, and closed within 6 hours.
Current unblock appeal
I appealed the current block in February 2011, and it was agreed, except for certain conditions I had asked for. I appealed again in October 2011, dropping the previous conditions. The appeal was overturned without explanation.
June 2010 appeal
