Blocked[edit]

You have been blocked indefinitely from editing because your account is being used only for vandalism. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding below this notice the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first. - jc37 02:36, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Request reason:

Please, this has to be some misunderstanding, no one is even on this computer most days of the week; there is almost never anyone in this building most days of the week.

Accept reason:

I agree with the blocking administrator that most of the editing from this IP address does not look very constructive. In particular, removing large chunks of text from articles without any explanation is unhelpful. If you have good reasons for such removal then you need to explain those reasons. In addition, at least one edit (this one) seems to have been deliberate vandalism. Having said that, however, I don't see the sort of extreme vandalism that would justify the exceptional step of an immediate six month block without any warning, so I am unblocking you. However, please be more careful how you edit in future, as you now have been warned, and unconstructive editing may well lead to another block, which may not be lifted as this one has been.

IPs usually aren't assigned to one building, let alone one computer. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 01:57, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
I'm afraid you are wrong there. IP addresses are very often assigned to one computer. JamesBWatson (talk) 17:02, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
This is a home computer; people are rarely here most days of the week. Can someone at least tell me why the address was banned? All I am told is that I am banned without any explanation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.46.61.211 (talkcontribs)
As you can see above, your original unblock request is on hold while the blockign admin is consulted. Please do not add additional unblock requests - especially ones that are identical to the first one (✉→BWilkins←✎) 17:03, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
The reason is noted at the top. To expand upon that, looking over Special:Contributions/68.46.61.211, I'm not seeing much in the way of constructive edits. Mostly just looks like unexplained removal (or mass replacement) of chunks of text. And this sort of editing can potentially be as much if not more problematic than other kinds of vandalism.
All that said, if unblocked, what do you intend to do in the near future? - jc37 07:19, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
I can't see any justification for the block. However, since the blocking administrator has been consulted about it, perhaps you can bear to wait a while to see if he/she responds. JamesBWatson (talk) 17:02, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
    • There is an explanation for that. "Mistress" was meant in the traditional sense (a female employer), and was used as such in the book, not the sexual implication.

Okay, you people could have been nicer to the user, he/she was obviously humiliated and confused about the whole ban. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.37.214.70 (talk) 01:10, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
