Request reason:

I made no disruptive edits. I improved the article, only to find myself attacked by someone who reverted my edits 9 times in 5 days for no clear reason, claiming three contradictory reasons in edit summaries, claiming to have deliberately violated WP:POINT when they mistakenly restored a style violation, used two sockpuppets to further attack me, and deleted my comments on the talk page. Mermaid99 (talk) 20:56, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Decline reason:

I've read through that talk page discussion. Some frustration when your edits get reverted is understandable. A non-stop stream of belittling ad hominems while, at the same time, not engaging in a discussion of the issue at hand is not. Wikipedia is a collaborative project; if you are unable to collaborate with others and to bury the hatchet when you're offered an olive branch,that's disruptive.

Request reason:

I was being attacked by someone who's now used three obvious sockpuppets. There was no "non-stop stream of belittling ad hominems". There was no "issue at hand". The sockpuppeting user was reverting for no reason. They explicitly stated that they didn't care about reasons, they just wanted to revert. And you block me? This is ridiculous. They have received not so much as a suggestion that they shouldn't be sockpuppeting! Why are you in favour of sockpuppetry and against good faith editors?

Decline reason:

You need to focus on what you did wrong. PhilKnight (talk) 23:16, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

No evidence editor in good standing is using sockpuppets, continued attacks despite being explicitly warned, [1] and removal of legit talk page comment. [2] --NeilN talk to me 21:04, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Oh come on. What do you suppose those two IP editors are, both making their first edits to support User:Codename Lisa? Just a coincidence?? Be serious here. And did you seriously not notice that the user deleted my legit comment, leaving me no way to restore it without removing their subsequent one? Mermaid99 (talk) 21:12, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
No doubt this is nothing that would concern you either. Three IP addresses popping up to support a named account, oh sure, no evidence of sockpuppetry there! Mermaid99 (talk) 21:19, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
You have been blocked from editing for a period of 1 week for persistently making disruptive edits. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. In addition, your ability to edit your talk page has also been revoked.
If you think there are good reasons for being unblocked, please read the guide to appealing blocks, then submit a request to the Unblock Ticket Request System.  NeilN talk to me 21:39, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

As you obviously have no intention of stopping the accusations despite being told what needed to be done, [3] I have extended the block to a week and removed talk page access. --NeilN talk to me 21:42, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
