Some time ago a user started a page on http://community.kde.org on
which he detailed things that he considered to be wrong with KDE
software.  The comments were largely subjective, and in many cases
demonstrated things that were not the general experience.  At that
point he was asked to substantiate his complaints by pointing to bug
reports.

That strategy backfired, as he then began creating a barrage of bug
reports, creating a good deal of work for triagers who have to decide
whether the report is a duplicate of some other, or invalid for any
reason.  Up to now people have been very patient with him, but it has
come to our notice that he has crossed a line.

He has now begun defacing other pages, adding links to his comments
page and/or his bug reports.  This basically results in what should be
"official" information, posted by developers of the application in
question, being questionable, in that the reader cannot easily
differentiate his input.

This contributor's input has repeatedly violated the Code of Conduct (
http://www.kde.org/code-of-conduct/). In view of this we have reached
the point where we believe that he should be banned from posting on
the wikis, and his comments completely removed.  This will now take place.
