 Administrator intervention against vandalism
This page is intended for reports about obvious and persistent vandals and spammers only. Before posting here, please read the spam and vandalism pages, as well as the AIV guide. To submit a report, edit this page and follow the instructions at the top of the "User-reported" section. For other issues that require administrators, file an external request for administrator attention.

Important! Please remember the following:

  1. The edits of the reported user must be obvious vandalism or obvious spam.
  2. The user must have been given enough warnings to stop their disruptive behavior.
  3. The warnings must have been given recently and the users must be active now, especially for unregistered users.
  4. Requests for further sanctions against a blocked user (e.g., talk page, e-mail blocks) should go to AN/I, as a bot automatically removes accounts here that are blocked.

@The Avengers: I suggest that you read the message at the top of this page headed "Important! Please remember the following", especially point 3. We don't block IP addresses on the basis of edits from well over a year ago and speculation that they may one day come back.

Pictogram voting comment.png Note: No edits for two days, and none since being warned of a possible block, so unless there is any more promotional or disruptive editing, there is no justification for any action. The article Paul B which the editor is, in fact, completely unrelated to the one deleted via AFD, and is clearly about a different person with the same nickname.
