Serious issue which needs your immediate attention
Sometime prior to 17 November 2013, I deleted a number of images from Commons which was done at the request of one of the individuals in the photos. I will not name the files, nor will I state when I deleted them. I will state that the subject did not want photos with her in them on Commons for reasons of privacy. I deleted the files without question and did so quietly.
Today, I have been advised by JurgenNL that on 17 November 2013, you sent to him an email. The email had the subject line: "Foto's Moira", and the text was as follows:
Hier heb je de verwijderde foto's. Bij de groepsfoto's staan ook alle namen van de mensen (gebruikersnamen wel te verstaan). Dat interview kan ik misschien maar beter niet delen, want dan weet je gelijk erg veel van Moira haar priveleven en dat moet ik niet doen.Groetjes (your name removed)"
Translated roughly into English:
Here are the deleted photos. At the group photos, the names of the people are written (the user names, to be exactly). Maybe it's better to keep the interview for myself, otherwise you will know too much about Moira's private life and I can't do that.Greetings (your name removed)"
He also provided a screenshot of the email, which I am providing here (with your real name blacked out). After I asked him to supply another screenshot with the "Details bekijken" visible, he did so straight away and here it is. Again, I have blacked out your real name, but have left the email addresses intact as they are publicly available via numerous posts to Wikimedia mailing lists. I have also removed from both screenshots the images which you attached to the email (which I will provide to the WMF if required). There is no doubt that this email was sent by yourself to JurgenNL.
JurgenNL did not become an admin on this project until January 2014, so he was unable to access them on Commons until well after the email was sent to him. In private conversation with JurgenNL, he told me that numerous things were being discussed, and that without being asked to, you accessed the deleted images and sent them to him on email. He also states that he was not aware of the existence of these photos until you provided them to him.
Knowing that the individual in question is concerned about her online privacy, it is an egregious abuse of your tools to be accessing deleted content and providing it to editors in the way that you have. Given the events surrounding the editor in question, you are as much complicit in the harassment as JurgenNL and TBloemink are at worse, or participated in its facilitation at best.
As a Check User on Commons, you are trusted by the Community to deal with sensitive information, and you are expected to deal with that information inline with various policies relating to accessing CU data. Although you haven't used your Check User tool in this instance, you have used your Administrator tools to access delete content, which you knew was deleted for reasons of privacy and distributed it to an editor who neither knew of their existence nor had access to them.
I believe that the community should have been informed of this during the RfC on JurgenNL and TBloemink as the community would have been very concerned as to your involvement. I expect that the community would have requested that your advanced permissions were also removed if it was aware at the time.
I sincerely hope there is some very good reasoning you might have which would explain your actions here, or that you will resign your advanced permissions if you can see that you have acted below community expectations so as to avoid another prolonged investigation.
- I propose to AGF here and to be honest I see no need to reopen this case. Everybody trusted JurgenNL those days, which is clearly visible in the adminship request. Jcb (talk) 18:53, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
- As the "victim" can only say Jcb is so right. No news to me that Trijnstel shared pics with a person we all those days had trained, helped and trusted as a colleague. What happens here is a vicious planned act by two persons only. Trust this awful privacy violation of private emails can be removed and oversighted here as soon as possible and the culprits held accountable here. MoiraMoira (talk) 18:58, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
