Risker, here's a great tip: If you *really* do not want the case
reheard, then why not just stop emailing and publicising the case,
repeating the name of the accused and providing links in an attempt to
prove some point or other. Try spending your volunteer time welcoming
a few new Wikipedia editors instead of banning contributors and making
life ghastly for those who are under your hammer.

I welcomed and helped many thousands of newer en.wp contributors
during the time I was an admin. Even after the machinations of a few
individuals shot my reputation to hell and got me banned from what was
my home project for many years, I still helped Wikipedians with tricky
problems behind the scenes; in fact my highly publicised case made me
someone that those upset and having difficulties with our arcane
processes could turn to in confidence, in a way that most trusted
users do not have the real life experience and grey hairs to offer.
Having authority is not all about dishing it out, or even having the
badges to prove you must be respected.
