I am NOT a sock of Sussexman or anyone else. User:David Lauder|David Lauder]] (talk) 10:30, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

  • Sussexman died from prostate cancer in October 2016. I am still here (as is obvious). This whole business was a frame-up and according to Wikipedia's own rules no-one is banned "indefinitely". David Lauder (talk) 09:00, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Request reason:

Whatever it is claimed that I did, it was not extreme enough by any margins to warrant a block which has now been over six months in extent. Others whose behaviour towards others has been aggressive, insulting and threatening, and who have been blocked in excess of forty times are unblocked. I believe that my contributions to the project speak for themselves.

Decline reason:

This does not address the reason for your block, see WP:GAB. Also, sockpuppetry blocks by checkusers are generally not undone by other admins. Your appeal, if any, should be addressed to the blocking checkuser or to the Arbitration Committee. —  Sandstein  14:28, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Yes, it does indeed address my block, which I have always contested in principal as a more than obvious witch-hunt based upon suppositions and so-called coincidences. It is surely laughable to tell me to address my unblocking request to the person who blocked me?! Its a bit like gang warfare where a gang of lads bundle you into a room and lock the door, me screaming out to the person turning the key to let me out. As I said, my contributions to Wikipedia speak for themselves. Had I wanted to be a wrecker would I have made those efforts? David Lauder (talk) 15:26, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Request reason:

A very long period of time has now passed since I was blocked. I have always felt that my very substantial contributions to Wikipedia were not properly considered. is it not time for this block to be lifted?

Decline reason:

I'm sorry, but after reviewing this case, I have concluded that your best course of action to be unblocked is to email the arbitration committee. There is too much evidence/history of sockpuppetry and other problems. TNXMan 17:27, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Haltoun House.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Haltoun House.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 17:31, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Notification of automated file description generation[edit]

Your upload of File:Beilmouth Arms.jpg or contribution to its description is noted, and thanks (even if belatedly) for your contribution. In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.

This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata. It would be appreciated if you could carefully review the information the bot added. To opt out of these notifications, please follow the instructions here. Thanks!

Request reason:

Firstly, I was never ever a sock-puppet of Sussexman, regardless of your accusations. I edited twice for him when he was at the office and could not do so. I told you this before. Anyway, William died from prostate cancer in November so you might as well de-activate his account. My reason for writing is to ask for reinstatement. I made thousands of contributions to Wikipedia almost all of an academic nature. Wikipedia's own ruls state that I should not have been banned for this long. David Lauder (talk) 15:18, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Firstly, I don't for a second actually believe you after reviewing the massive amounts of evidence myself (outside of checkuser evidence that I cannot see, but was backed up by two very trusted checkusers in 2008) Second, there are no such rules that you speak of regarding indefinite blocks (which completely by coincidence was a point that the Sussexman account was used to make). Lastly, you were told the last time you asked for an unblock (in 2009) that you needed to go through the Arbitration Committee to appeal this block considering the nature of what led to it (and due to it being a checkuser block)... so, I'll repeat that here: You must contact the Arbitration Committee if you want to make an unblock request; to do so, email arbcom-l@lists.wikimedia.org with your account information and evidence.

"Massive amounts of evidence". Just a massive lie. Why would someone spending thousands of hours of his time adding to the project deliberately try to sabotage the project? Every ask yourself that? I won;t say anything about the IRA terrorist supporter who "compiled" your "massive evidence". And Wikipedia had a rule about how long people can be expelled for. Maybe you should look it up?
