Request reason:

Sorry I did not mean any harm

Decline reason:

Considering that you have been similarly warned on EN regarding this, I don't think that your repeated issues on this wiki is justified and can be considered an honest mistake. -- Chenzw  Talk  03:14, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

For any admin reviewing this, here are some specifics. I only had to go back a week to find all these: there are undoubtedly others before that. I recommend looking through the history of this talk page to see other things that Ipadguy has been warned about.

  • restored warnings on User talk: that that user had removed, even though Ipadguy himself removes every message left on his own talk page
  • inappropriate warning on his talk page notice ("Warning, Do NOT edit this page unless you really, really, need too.")
  • overcategorizing many pages related to Apple Inc.

I didn't even try to analyze the edit warring complained about at User talk: --Auntof6 (talk) 22:59, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

There are many examples out there, but I'll add this revert to the mix. The IP user adds a period in the wrong spot creating a red link. So, Ipadguy just reverts it rather than making the logical fix. So quick to the trigger, so inappropriate in actions. I fully agree with this block as I brought up at Auntof6's talk page earlier today. I'll allow others to come along to review the block, though. Only (talk) 02:34, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Doesn't seem to have the proper judgement/understanding of our rules to contribute here, despite already having contributed on EN before. 3 cases of severely assuming bad faith in less than half a day is ridiculous, and turns out that I am not the only one who takes issue with his approach to his user talk page.
Note to administrators: per en:WP:REMOVED, declined unblock requests regarding a currently active block may not be removed by the concerned user. Chenzw  Talk  03:14, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Endlessly reposting invalid warnings on my talk page[change source]

Deleting[change source]

I will restore your talk messages. Deleting your messages after reading them is seriously inconvenient to anyone. Please DO NOT restore the messages. PS: I have studied the EN wiki and trying to unblock multiple times will result on a talk page ban. PokestarFan (talk) 20:40, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

@PokestarFan: Please leave restoring another user's talk messages to either that user or the admins: although it makes things difficult, users are allowed to delete most things from their own talk pages. Also, it is up to the admins to decide whether to remove talk page access: it is not automatic, even after multiple unblock requests. --Auntof6 (talk) 21:03, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
And in addition to what Auntof6 said, if you've "studied the EN wiki", then you would know that users can blank their own talk pages: "Policy does not prohibit users, whether registered or unregistered, from removing comments from their own talk pages, although archiving is preferred. If a user removes material from their user page, it is normally taken to mean that the user has read and is aware of its contents." So, Ipadguy is well within his rights to remove comments. Do not restore them, PokestarFan. Only (talk) 21:21, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

I understand. Sorry @Ipadguy:.PokestarFan (talk) 21:44, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
