 As you bring the debian-www list into the game, I am commenting on it.

 Reading the thread shows quite interesting point of views on your site,
like working around the acl ban instead of doing collaborative
communication work. A wiki isn't the place to fight a disagreement in
through edit wars, it's the place to contain the _result_ of proper
discussions once a conflict got noticed.

 Actually I don't notice any approach on discussing either the reason
for the change that you tried to force onto the page several times nor
does it help. Editing should be done with proper reasoning, not revering
with "I don't understand why you reverted so I revert again".

 Sorry to say that, but to me, reading the information you handed on,
the ban seems quite justified and bringing it up again without any
further input on the ground of where and how you tried to discuss your
wished changes to the page doesn't help, rather the contrary.
