I wrote an open letter to Lila because I saw Philippe Beaudette saying he was taking advice from English Wikipedia Arbcom on the matter of offsite harassment. The problem is that is that Arbcom has an history of harassing. So it should not be giving any advice on the matter of stopping it.
To make this case, I used the examples of FT2's "Anvil Email" threatening an editor's family and AGK's filing a trumped-up complaint to an editor's employer, and then on a similar theme I pointed to Wikimedia Foundation steward JurgenNL and administrator TBloemink's real-life stalking of MoiraMoira (they laughed about her on IRC and then took a train trip to visit her house). I won't copy-paste the whole thing here, but if you're interested you'll find it here: http://timsongfan.livejournal.com/1971.html. Feedback is welcome. I think the WMF's policy of according IP and other sensitive user data via checkuser and UTRS and so forth to anonymous administrators is creating real risks to Wikipedia editors, and that is the case I make in the open letter.
