Now it is not only about Freedom of Panorama and non-free images.

Here, one Commons user nominates a bunch of excellent photos for 
deletion after he sees that the user name does not match the name in 
EXIF, even though the connection between the two is pretty obvious. This 
deletion request has been closed yesterday, but it still costed me a lot 
of time and a long e-mail exchange with the uploader, where I tried to 
convince her that everything is fine, and this deletion request was only 
a mistake. Yes, just a small mistake, really...

Here, the same user nominates for deletion some photos of a 13th century 
cathedral claiming that there is no freedom of panorama. What???!


That's a very systematic course of action against us taking place on 
Commons. It would be silly to assume good faith here.
