Request reason:

Unblock please. I am a faculty member at Auburn University at Montgomery and this is a new account. There has been no conflict of interest in my edits nor has my editing been disruptive. Thank you. Deco Engel (talk) 06:18, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

Decline reason:

CHeckuser confirmed abuser of multiple accounts. only (talk) 12:19, 27 December 2015 (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.

I question whether there is any checkuser evidence of the sort. Because of sensitive issues relating to the disclosures I make above, this account was always conducted through a Swiss VPN host provided by Golden Frog. This is a sophisticated facility which blocks internet access immediately a connection goes down. It is possible that a connection was made through another server (I use Austin, USA, a great deal) and possibly a host IP at any of several locations in the UK, Holland and Switzerland I have been visiting, but I am certain there is nothing in the relatively few edits I have made that can credibly suggest multiple abuse of accounts.
Unfortunately the underlying issue is extremely serious. I shall consult with colleagues and elsewhere as how best to proceed. There may be a hiatus of some weeks or months as investigations continue. In the circumstances of the case, I see no point in advising the Wikimedia Foundation.
