That was the story of Lightbreather, a English Wiipedia editor that self-identified as female. She ran afoul of some other editor that (IIRC, I'm confident this is basically correct) that labeled some images on a porn site as being her (they were labeled "Lightbreather"). The outcome (GET THIS!) was that she (Lightbreather!) was formally banned by Arbcom for complaining about it at Wikipedia. They said she was "outing" the culprit by calling attention to his off-wiki activities. Horrendous I know and tends to shows that Arbcom and the rest of Enwiki administrative structure genuinely have a problem with women, which they are often alleged to (i.e. in Gamergate and all that). Trillium Corsage PS: A similar thing happened to editor Kiefer Wolfowitz. After seeking in vain to get a email reply about another editor that was exhibiting curious-approaching-alarming interactions with boys and young men, he sought, in measured terms, comments from the arbs and WMF staff on WIkipedia. Arbcom then banned Kiefer, protecting the editor in question with whom at least one of the arbs (Wormthatturned) was very friendly. I guess a year or so after that, the WMF quietly issued a no-comment "SanFranBan" against the editor Kiefer had complained about. Which would indicate Kiefer had a legitimate concern all along. _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines New messages to: Wikimediafirstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
