Eastern European mailing list
The Eastern European mailing list case has entered its fifth week of deliberations, and its first week of voting. The case concerns a set of leaked mailing list archives which are alleged to show an extensive history of collusion among numerous editors of Eastern European topics. Standard workshop procedures have been suspended for the case, so normal drafting of proposals by the parties and other editors has not taken place.
The proposed decision, written by arbitrator Coren, would strip Piotrus of his administrator status, ban him for three months, and place him under a topic ban for one year; ban Digwuren and Martintg for three months and also place them under year-long topic bans; and issue a number of admonishments and reminders, as well as an amnesty for all participants of the mailing list not otherwise sanctioned. A secondary proposal by arbitrator Rlevse would ban Tymek for three months as well. No other arbitrators have yet commented on the proposed remedies.
Speed of light
The Speed of light case has entered its seventh week of deliberations, and its first week of voting. The case was filed by Jehochman, who cited concerns about "tendentious editing and disruption" by a large number of editors on the "speed of light" article.
The proposed decision, written by arbitrator Vassyana, condemns FDT and Brews ohare for a variety of inappropriate conduct, and would place both under a number of editing restrictions and topic bans. An alternative proposal by arbitrator Coren would ban FDT for one year.
Shortly before the proposed decision was published, the Committee adopted an injunction prohibiting FDT from participating on the case's pages and requiring him to submit any comments to the Committee directly.
