Should this user be unblocked?

Blood Red Sandman has reviewed Michaeldsuarez's request to be unblocked, and the result was approved. The reason given by Blood Red Sandman was: I've been banned for the actions of a troll. That troll created the User:Michaeldsuarez. (notice the period at the end) account in order to impersonate me. The impersonator is a troll known as Stopallspam. Stopallspam is from Great Britain, and I'm from New York. The impersonator created my user page in order to frame me and get me banned (and he suceeded). User:Michaeldsuarez. is an impersonator, not my sockpuppet. If you don't believe me, then you may conduct a CheckUser / Sockpuppetry investigation. Although I don't use this wiki, I would like the opportunity to clear my name..
You should now be able to edit pages as normal.

Hmmmm. I that the vandalizing edits to this account where made with the perioded account, not with this account. I don't have checkuser rights so I can't check the rest of the story, but I'll ask brianmc to look into it for you. Gopher65talk 03:32, 24 February 2010 (UTC)Reply

I remember performing this block. I performed it after is was alerted in IRC; Tempodivalse informed me that this account had created a strange userpage (I don't remember the exact description or what it contained). Accordingly, I trusted their word and blocked, also deleting the page. I have no issues unblocking without a checkuser request. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 09:29, 24 February 2010 (UTC)Reply
I double-checked this account did not make the edits. I would like it checked out by Brian with his checkuser powerz, but I'm comfortable unblocking in the meantime. Apologies for not seeing that. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 09:33, 24 February 2010 (UTC)Reply
Thanks. --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 12:46, 24 February 2010 (UTC)Reply
Sorry, i must have made a mistake in IRC. I saw this entry, created by the vandal impersonator, and thought that it was this account making the page (didn't notice the period on the end). In any case, sorry for any inconvenience, I hope this won't discourage you from contributing in the future. Tempodivalse [talk] 15:30, 24 February 2010 (UTC)Reply
It's okay. Thanks for the apology. --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 17:04, 24 February 2010 (UTC)Reply
At the end of the day, Tempo made a mistake, but the real mess was mine. Xe likely just glanced at it then sought a second opinion; as the person actually blocking and deleting it was my job to see to it everything was done properly.

It's okay; there wasn't any real harm done. --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 19:11, 24 February 2010 (UTC)Reply
