Gerald "Joe" Moreno and friends banned from Wikipedia


People who are obsessive-compulsive and also full of bitterness and anger can be pretty annoying. Independent evidence comes even from a mainstream internet community such as Wikipedia. As the result of an Wikipedia link Arbitration case on Wikipedia that ran from 27 December 2006 to 6 March 2007, Gerald 'Joe' Moreno, Lisa De Witt, and another pro-Sai Baba activist, Wikisunn, have all been banned indefinitely from editing the Wikipedia link Sai Baba-related articles and talk-pages on Wikipedia. One of the ironic points is that it was discovered that many of the Arbitrators were not active, so the true number of Arbs had to be verified so that the majority vote of each proposal could be recalculated.

In the end Moreno was been banned indefinitely from editing Wikipedia or using any talk pages. The arbitrators Wikipedia link had suggested a permanent ban on Joe (aka SSS108), Lisa (aka FreeLanceResearch) and 'wikisunn' (whoever he/she is). Joe stepped over the line and was just now  'banned indefinitely' outright by another arbitrator. He harassed the administrator who blocked him with false claims of sockpuppetry (editing Wikipedia through multiple accounts, very much frowned upon), and was blocked indefinitely for that harassment. See his Wikipedia link Block Log, also Wikipedia link this comment (on his user talk page) and Wikipedia link this one

He was allowed to make a final comment, so he has posted (as if to save face) that he "is disengaging from Wikipedia"! i.e. the place he has spent enormous efforts on during the last year or so, but he had no option - he was already banned!
