::::::You've apologized many times for many different situations. Over your time editing, there has been little improvement in your ability (or lack of) to converse civilly with other editors. You are blocked on multiple wikis, currently indefinitely blocked on the English Wikipedia and English Wikisource. You have been blocked on multiple other wikis whose blocks have since expired. Your accounts have been used for disruption, defamation, and attacks. I do not read Amharic, but your user page is quite clear, as is [[ውክፔዲያ:ብልግና|this policy]] which you created that is very anti-LGBT, and against the mission of Wikimedia. I have reconsidered my vote, and will not rescind it. Thank you, [[አባል:Vermont|Vermont]] ([[አባል ውይይት:Vermont|talk]]) 02:31, 10 ጃንዩዌሪ 2019 (UTC)
:::::::In my defense, :I am only blocked on those two wikis. Wikisource? I don't even remember that now. I have moved on. That policy does not mention lgbt at all, you are mistaken or reading a wrong translation. How do you want it changed?.

::::::::If I am reading an incorrect translation, would you mind translating it (or summarizing it) for me? From my position viewing Google Translate, it seems as though you enforce Ethiopian morality laws (which include homosexuality) onwiki, which should not be done.

*I just want to point out the bleeding obvious which seems to have been missed here: this is a language Wikipedia. Just because a country where that language is spoken has some backwards laws doesn't mean all the people who speak that language agree with said laws. Wikipedia, in whatever language, is meant to be a neutral encyclopedia, meaning that declaring something wrong just because the aforementioned backwards laws want you to is irrelevant because it means you're not being neutral. And finally, the Wikimedia Foundation servers, including those which house this incarnation of Wikipedia, are hosted in the United States, where homosexuality and the promotion thereof, is entirely legal, so your local laws don't mean squat.

::OK. But no other users sexual orientation has ever come up or been an issue here before in 14 years until User:QueerEcofeminist who is already unblocked, so what else would you change? [[አባል:Til Eulenspiegel|Til Eulenspiegel]] ([[አባል ውይይት:Til Eulenspiegel|talk]]) 23:29, 9 ጃንዩዌሪ 2019 (UTC)
