I think the link already in the description pointing to the Sockpupett investigation is sufficient https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikip%C3%A9dia:Faux-nez/Maitreidmry, as the user is banned and uses this blog to harass another Wikipedian.
@Jules78120 Please consider we have no context for this and if we'd start removing blogs based on requests without discussion then it would also mean it could be abused and next thing we could have the other side in a conflict request the same leading to "edit wars". I am sure it is all obvious to you but for me for example I can't judge who is harassing who and whether this is even the same person as on the wiki and I'm also not a native French speaker. That's why i asked for help. As technical people we would like to stay out of making that judgement call and rather rely on existing discussions or somebody who is doing this full time (maybe T&S team).
Hi @Dzahn, thanks for removing.
As this could happen again, it might be better to start by not allowing this kind of disposable account out of nowhere https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:CentralAuth/Blogdukiwi to be automatically indexed on request.
@Dzahn Sorry, my message was not clear. I know how adding blogs is done on metawiki. What I meant to say is that the banned user just had to create a disposable account to index his blog https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Blogdukiwi. It would probably be useful not to accept all these requests almost automatically, rather to filter the requests. For example according to the seniority of the user who made the request or that of the blog (in this case both were new).
Currently anyone can create a new account and a new blog in a few minutes, then get indexed on request and gain high visibility. However, to withdraw it, you require a community consensus. I think it is this imbalance that makes harassment easier.
@Akeron: You imply that requests are accepted almost automatically. Which (recent) information is your statement based on?
Thanks for finding that Andre!
@Akeron Sorry, i don't really have a relation to the on-wiki part of this. Actually what is happening is already basically what you suggested. Another user (in this case Amir) suggests to me to add it and then i merge it in Gerrit based on the seniority / reputation of the one requesting it and whether I see Wikimedia-related content on it. It's really not "almost automatic". Also, this specific blog has been in planet for 5 years, it wasn't added just a few weeks ago. So i guess most of the harassment you are talking about happened afterwards. As a technical user i am trying to stay out of the on-wiki discussion. I see your point though, feel free to bring that up on meta if you think there should be stricter checking. I would like to point out though that this is the only case in years where a removal was needed that wasn't due to just technical reasons.
