Blocked[edit]

Appears to be unapproved bot, operating locally on Wikiquote without permission or local community consensus. -- Cirt (talk) 17:51, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

I guess the English Wikiquote doesn't want message deliveries. Whatever. --MZMcBride 18:29, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
Aside from the technical issue of local bot policy (and I totally get that you don't want to delve into the individual policies of hundreds of wikis), the mailing that prompted the block was probably ill-considered. A message intended for all administrators might better have been posted once at the Administrators' noticeboard (or even the Village pump) rather than being repeated on multiple users' talk pages. (Incidentally, it only reached about half of them.)

When I spotted this on the Recent Changes log, the irony of an unsolicited mass-mailing to promote mail list subscription made me LOL. ~ Ningauble 19:24, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
