:You made an unannounced change to a [[redirect]] page and turned into a policy draft based on something you contested on my talk page. You did not put it up for consensus or a separate page for discussion, you just did it, overwriting a legitimate redirect in the process. Do such a thing again, and your block will begin.

::Why do we have a [[cross-namespace redirect]] of that sort? There's a difference between edit warring in general (a suitable topic for a mainspace page, [[edit war]]ring) and edit warring as practiced on WikiIndex (which would be the topic of a project namespace page on the subject, Project:Edit warring). I don't see why you view such an edit as disruption rather than permissible bold editing.

::But, even if WikiIndex does have some unusual accepted practice concerning cross-namespace redirects, I don't see why you are now making block warnings about my inadvertently deviating from that practice. You seem to be making a big deal about rather minor incidents lately. It strikes me as odd. I don't know why you worry so much, and feel a need to begin paving the way for such drastic action, when everything is mostly going fine here.

[[Special:Contributions/Sophie Wilder]] – The sysop who blocked Sophie Wilder is now gone, and you know as well as I do that opposing Leucosticte is neither "trolling" nor "harassment". There are rational reasons to be upset with Leucosticte's behavior; the block wasn't deserved, especially under the given excuse of "trolling/harassment". --[[User:Michaeldsuarez|Michaeldsuarez]] ([[User talk:Michaeldsuarez|talk]]) 14:24, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

:If I could reasonably guarantee they aren't going to try [[edit war]]ring for the sake of openly opposing a user they have made clear they plan to go to war against openly if they were unblocked, I would. I certainly sympathize with their motives, but without a way to contact them and discuss this issue, I cannot render a judgment as to the wisdom of your request at this time.

::Use your head: [[Special:Contributions/Sophie Wilder|Sophie Wilder is clearly a RationalWiki user]]. [http://rationalwiki.org/w/index.php?title=User:Sophie_Wilder&redirect=no That leads us to RationalWiki user "Bicycle Wheel"]. You have a RationalWiki account and can communicate with "Bicycle Wheel" there. --[[User:Michaeldsuarez|Michaeldsuarez]] ([[User talk:Michaeldsuarez|talk]]) 14:50, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

:::Michael, I would prefer not to import issues from here elsewhere if I can avoid it. I would be willing to unblock her to the point she can edit her talk page, and if you will inform her I did so, I'd be happy to start a dialogue with her.
