== Nature of the cases == Most cases are attempts to ban someone who has not done anything that is obviously against any rules. Some types of cases include: * Content dispute - one side is false while the other side is true - in most cases the arbitration committee will side with the side that is making it up, often because that side has power on Wikipedia (e.g. they are administrators). * Content dispute - both sides are right, but it is impossible because of the impossibility of abiding by [[NPOV]] - in many cases the arbitration committee will ban both groups, although sometimes neither may be in trouble. Sometimes they will side with one group, usually because of who they are. * Stalking / harassment - whilst Wikipedia in actuality does absolutely nothing about serious stalking and harassment, they like to pretend that they do. As such, whenever a powerful person on Wikipedia makes up a story about this, they act by banning everyone who opposes them. For example [[SlimVirgin]] and [[MONGO]] have made up such stories. In real cases of stalking / harassment, the arbitration committee will not actually handle the dispute. * Legal threats - Wikipedia likes to think that breaking the law and slandering someone's name is no big deal, but complaining about it is grounds for banishment. Even if there were no actual legal threats, they nonetheless like to ban someone over it. * Personal attacks - Whilst the likes of [[Snowspinner]] and [[Tony Sidaway]] can swear their heads off and perennial bullies like [[Antaeus Feldspar]] and [[Lulu of the Lotus Eaters]] can harass and stalk anyone they like, if anyone dares to retaliate, they can get banned.
