Continued block of User:Jonny84[edit]

For review by other admins: After Jonny84 was blocked by me for edit warring, he requested unblocks twice, which were declined by Elcobbola. He then continued to harass us on his talk page, accusing us of abuse of power, power hunger, and other things. I removed their talk page access and upped the block to a month so they can hopefully relax a little and use the time to reflect. As an involved party, I'd like other admins to review this block. Sebari – aka Srittau (talk) 23:00, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi, I don't speak German, but I don't see Jonny84 acknowledging the issue. Elcobbola says it very well: COM:BLOCK requires an understanding of the issue and a credible commitment to discontinue. Regards, Yann (talk) 06:14, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
For reference, the user in question now |left a message (in German) on my dewp user page. Still no sign of regret, only blaming the admins. And the user gave me a two day ultimatum, otherwise he'll complain to "Wikimedia". (Whatever he thinks this will accomplish.) Sebari – aka Srittau (talk) 14:59, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
