Only people with short noses control WikipediaEdit

You're one of them. Congratulations!

Koitus~nlwiki if you don't want to edit Wikipedia, just don't edit Wikipedia - do something else with your time. If you do want to edit Wikipedia, you need to learn how to do that without insulting people. By leaving comments like this around the place, you are merely telling the world about the sort of person that you are. Now knock it off before I ask a steward to globally lock your all of your Wikimedia accounts for cross-wiki harassment. Girth Summit (blether) 15:50, 17 January 2022 (UTC)
You blocking me is based on one incident only. You don't even look how many changes I made over the years. Koitus~nlwiki (talk) 17:51, 11 March 2022 (UTC)
Actually, I blocked you because of a series of incidents, which included edit warring and personal attacks. You don't get a free pass on that kind of thing just because you have made constructive contributions in the past. However, when we say that a block is indefinite, we mean just that: it's length is not defined. If you were to make an unblock request, acknowledging that your actions were inappropriate and undertaking not to repeat them, I would not stand in the way of your being unblocked.

Dutch namesEdit

These names are written by someone who looks further than his English/American nose is long: De Haas–Van Alphen effect. Excellent!

But this article is written by someone to lazy to look further than that same nose: van Cittert–Zernike theorem. Just terrible.

Well done, G.S. You know it all, right?

Koitus~nlwiki, we do actually have guidance for capitalisation at EnWiki. It's found at MOS:CAPS. As a part of the MOS, it's a guideline, rather than a policy - the expectation is that people follow it, and if someone was editing disruptively by willfully ignoring it after having it brought to their attention multiple times they might eventually end up blocked. I wouldn't block someone for not knowing about it, or forgetting to follow it on occasion. Your block has got nothing to do with that guideline: you are blocked because you repeatedly chose to insult someone you disagreed with. That falls under NPA, which is policy, and is dealt with by immediate blocks when people ignore it. I blocked you temporarily when you insulted someone; when you insulted them again after that block expired, it was clear that you had no intention of following that policy, and you gave me no choice but to block you indefinitely.
Now, if you are actually bothered about being blocked, your course of action is very straightforward: make an unblock request, indicating that you have read and understood the policy on personal attacks, and that you commit to follow it in future. I would also advise you to indicate that you would be willing to accept a one-way interaction ban with the subject of your earlier insults. I would be prepared to accept such a request myself, and unblock your account, under those conditions. If you don't want to be unblocked, that's fine, but please stop leaving snarky messages here, it serves no purpose. Girth Summit (blether) 08:49, 31 March 2022 (UTC)

Global lock requestedEdit

Hiya, GS. Just wanted to let you know that someone has requested a global lock for you at Steward requests/Global § Global lock for Girth Summit (permalink). Maybe an account of someone you've blocked before (CentralAuth)? Sdrqaz (talk) 15:46, 9 May 2022 (UTC)

Thanks - yes, it's a sock of Blogs19. I've requested lock. Girth Summit (blether) 16:03, 9 May 2022 (UTC)
