I did not make the edits in question. My son did, using my account. My account has no history of any previous vandalism nor any other issues that might warrant such a drastic step as a permanent ban. I understand your need to be vigilant against any malicious damage, but enacting permanent bans for minor first offenses is really going too far. Indefinite suspension for first offenses is a violation of Wikipedia policy. (For more on this I refer you to the Wikipedia:Blocking Policy--> (Excerpt: Guide to blocking times: A block for disruption on a dynamic IP is usually up to 24 hours. Static IPs and logged-in users: start at 24 hours, increase gradually if it starts again.... Indefinite blocks should not be used on IPs... Longer IP blocks on the order of months or years can be warranted in cases of long-term recurrent disruption, but are not to be used for isolated incidents of disruption from IP addresses, nor at first against user accounts that make a mixture of disruptive and useful edits. --- Some types of disruption have more established guidelines: - Vandalism — Blocks should not be used against isolated incidents of vandalism. Dynamic IPs: up to 24 hours. AOL IPs and range blocks: about 15 minutes, then 1-3 hours, and 24 at most, to avoid collateral damage. User accounts with persistent violations may be blocked indefinitely."

You have been unblocked based on the past positive edits you have made to Wikipedia. Please convey to your son that we have very little tolerance for vandalism or pranks on Wikipedia and you are solely responsible for all edits originating from this account or the IP address: (talk contribs). If either is compromised again, you will be blocked again. --  Netsnipe  ►  11:52, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
