Claim to be Essjay is dubious.
Essjay was de-sysoped by his request on all WIkimedia projects, but was never blocked from editing here. Your claim to be Essjay is therefore rather dubious, as Essjay could simply use his old account, or, more likely, given the circumstances, edit without mention of his previous username under another. Your sudden spate of actions appears to be more in line with an oppurtunistic impersonation vandal than a former admin. ~ Kalki 09:24, 22 September 2007 (UTC)
- Such a request would be more convincing if made from the Essjay user account. As it stands, such a request could be made by any lame-brained fool of a vandal, and is not worthy of consideration, at all. Even if you were Essjay a re-application for sysop rights would probably be appropriate. As you are making the claim to be Essjay, unless you provide clear evidence that you actually are very soon, I will likely block your account as an impersonation attempt. ~ Kalki 09:37, 22 September 2007 (UTC)
- This is just a very poor attempt at impersonating Essjay, that's all. If he really was back, he'd be quite aware of the implicances and the repercussions of disclaiming his identity so openly, quite unlike this user's passing statement and then changing the subject to an alleged "copyright concern". Not using his former account even when he could seals it clearly enough. Phaedriel - 10:09, 22 September 2007 (UTC)
- I had pretty much construed that to be the case, and was just in the process of blocking the account...
- As edits made on pages by this account, including comments made on a new user's talk page were clearly not appropriate to the circumstaces, and a very unlikely claim to have been a former admin here and elsewhere has been made through comments as well as in its signature, I am permanently blocking this account as having been an impersonation attempt by a vandal. ~ Kalki 10:17, 22 September 2007 (UTC)
