Because of the part you dont quote, that cyber execution of uncomfy

"this could become my first ever contribution to wikipedia" means that
I still have not made any contributions, yes.

But limited to code only?
Or tell me please, why are people removed to report massive social
problems, as trustable people is one of the main component of security
Why is the mechanisms around the cabal, gossip and slander used
to keep the community together instead of a clean, transparent and
functional leadership structure?

There can be only one real Paddy who might have alternative cyber
identities, but you better not become me. Thats right.

Please. You play that game quite well, but you flash that card since
15 months and its still not hitting the nail.
After a years old cyber battle with certain people, chats have seen
full of creativity of this kind:
Example 1: * Ganneff has forced your nick to "retarded"
Example 2: <vorlon> i have 3 world class os releases to my credit
you little worm
Example 3: * Closing Link: (autokilled: i did your mom)
To that time sir David Graham was jerking me as reaction to a
(helpless) help request and I found it suitable to explain to him,
that the good old IRC tradition, to put in the server motd text
like "we can terminate your connection anytime we like without
any reason given" is plain bullshit when you know a little bit
about the law situation in europe.
And I hold that opinion up till today.
When you use ircop priviledges because you love it how people
fall from the server although they did not violate any policy, and
later you have to make up slander to backup your abuse, then
we have that situation that clowns have seen somebody on IRC
who made a legal threat.
But do you seriously imply the leadership of SPI Inc. refuses to
talk to me because of such cat poop?
Good comedy. I have 2 more questions then.
Harassment usually violates the network policy, right?
Why do we have hundreds of cases in the last years where
OFTC Staff tells victims of harassment:
"Dont take IRC so seriously, grow up!"
"use /ignore" and when the person insists they ban the guy
who reported abuse?
Why are channels like #debian and #debian.de famous for
Also very interesting:
Since 1-2 years I sometimes sit on irc.oftc.net all silent.
And while I sit on several channels I frequently see people
who get banned with the comment
"muahaha, must have been Patrick Frank the troll"
