Nobody seems to be insinuating that Fram is lying. It's just plain
stupidity to demonize the WMF's action solely on their part of the story
alone. Fram has penchant  for irritating  people he disagrees  with and
it's possible they have crossed the line.

Recently there was an AbCom case against Rama,  an English Wikipedia
administrator (now desysoped),  Commons administrator and oversighter.
While the case was ongoing,  Fram began to follow this user to an extent
that they began to mass-nominate for deletion the user's uploads on
Commons, a behavior the user considered as stalking and harassment. Some
users including myself requested that Fram stay away from Rama and their
uploads. A behavior  like this would normally  get users blocked but
nobody  felt the reason to ban or blocked Fram partly because they wear the
English Wikipedia's admin hat.

This incident is barely a month ago.

I am unsure if this form part of the reasons for the ban but I have no
enough reasons to think that the ban was unjustifiable.


Regards,

Isaac
