apologies if I've offended you. I'm not accusing the Pune community. Do
remember, I'm also part of the Pune community now.
Since this person chose to generalise things, I also chose to generalise as
such open trolling and blatant mudslinging happened when the Pune Club was
mentioned back in 2013. However, the past is the past.
My only point is, such trolls should not be encouraged. This said user is
the same user who says people like me should not be entertained. I've been
part of this list since 2008, a time, when quite a lot of people here did
not even know what the Edit Button was.
The same user in the past has made scathing remarks against me and Moksh:

If such users come to this public list to blast hard working users [yes, I
consider myself hard working as far as Wiki is concerned, both offline and
online], then there is no need for them to be here. Our contributions speak
volumes for themselves, and mine, be it on en.wikipedia, commons, or
wikidata speak more than some anonymous troll who sends out a mail with a
singular +1 attached to it.
Apologies for the whole Pune thing. That was wrong for me to have said.
However, I repeat, such trolls need to be blocked if the sanity and quality
of this mailing list it to be maintained.
