Announcement regarding Gamaliel

Gamaliel has resigned as an arbitrator because he is currently unable to edit the English Wikipedia and is therefore entirely inactive as an arbitrator. This has come about as a result of circumstances which have been disclosed to the Committee, and which in no way reflect negatively on him. We thank Gamaliel for his service on the 2016 Committee to date and wish him the best.

Sorry to see what's been happening to you

I've got a friend who's a writer and a columnist who wrote several pieces about the Gamergate stuff - to this day, those freaktards won't stop harassing and hounding him. They even tried to SWAT him twice. It must really suck watching them given free rein to harass people here. Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz (talk) 21:09, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Gamaliel and others closed

An arbitration case regarding Gamaliel and others has now closed and the final decision is viewable at the link above. The following remedies have been enacted:

  1. Gamaliel is admonished for multiple breaches of Wikipedia policies and guidelines including for disrupting Wikipedia to make a point, removing a speedy deletion notice from a page he created, casting aspersions, and perpetuating what other editors believed to be a BLP violation.
  2. DHeyward and Gamaliel are indefinitely prohibited from interacting with or discussing each other anywhere on Wikipedia, subject to the usual exemptions.
  3. DHeyward (talk · contribs) is admonished for engaging in incivility and personal attacks on other editors. He is reminded that all editors are expected to engage respectfully and civilly with each other and to avoid making personal attacks.
  4. For conduct which was below the standard expected of an administrator — namely making an incivil and inflammatory close summary on ANI, in which he perpetuated the perceived BLP violation and failed to adequately summarise the discussion — JzG is admonished.
  5. Arkon is reminded that edit warring, even if exempt, is rarely an alternative to discussing the dispute with involved editors, as suggested at WP:CLOSECHALLENGE.
  6. The community is encouraged to hold an RfC to supplement the existing WP:BLPTALK policy by developing further guidance on managing disputes about material involving living persons when that material appears outside of article space and is not directly related to article-content decisions.

Arb case was a joke

Gamaliel,

This arb case was a joke that should have never happened. You posted an April Fools joke, and sadly, your detractors saw it as a chance to run you out of the Wikipedia. I'm sorry to see that you've retired and hope that you'll return to Wikipedia. KoshVorlon 11:03, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

Appealing your sanction

Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Enforcement#Arbitration_enforcement_action_appeal_by_Ranze

I'm supposed to notify you about this since you put it in place. I skipped requesting directly since it says you are retired and if I waited and didn't begin it now I'd probably forget and put it off another several months.

Sorry for the bother if you are not interested, I don't mean to harass someone who has retired from editing. Ranze (talk) 06:44, 9 July 2016 (UTC)
