Access reinstated

My editing access has now been reinstated so I will use the opportunity to tidy up my Talk page

As IBobi of Internet Brands locked me out of the Project with a 1 week editing access Ban earlier today it has somewhat clarified my feelings concerning the appropriateness of my further involvement in this project in it's current incarnation.
I assume his actions were endorsed by his employers who currently provide the host servers for this Project.
The detail of the Ban is described at 01:02, 21 August 2012 IBobi (Talk | contribs) blocked Felix505 (Talk | contribs) with an expiry time of 1 week (account creation disabled) ‎ (Spam solicitations on WT members' talk pages)

The block (ID is #12042) was eventually successfully removed at 07:32, 21 August 2012 by Dguillaime Talk (unblocked #12042) following thwarted attempts by WT admins. I was not the only victim of this mischief today.

Of course I was not placing "Spam" on WT members talk pages as the Ban notes suggest, the action taken in 'banning' me from Project participation was just an act of sheer mischief by someone with entirely inappropriate administrator level access to the Project.
However that signals the death knell for me. I will just observe the WT carcass from a distance now.

I see no potentially constructive outcomes from further engagement with IBobi as he appears to have become feral.

My POV concerning the appropriateness of the Ban is outlined here in IBobi's Talk page and there is some briefer commentary on the Travellers pub page.
In the most part I have enjoyed working on this project, I am saddened to see what has now become of it.

Best wishes to all who remain working on the task here. -- felix 04:28, 21 August 2012 (EDT)
