  • WMF has too much money. Use it to prosecute the endless sockpuppets that make a hobby out of harassment. Chris Troutman (talk) 20:45, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
  Comment This does not help. I made an announcement to police for massive harassment campaign in local Wikipedia. Police sent me official answer, that this is not their business, because the harassment campaign comes from neighboring country. I must go to neighboring country and made an announcement to police of other country, maybe they want to investigate that. 20:22, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
