|This article needs a serious clean up|
Gwen Gale (aka Heidi Wyss) is a Wikipedia user who has enraged the community with vicious personal attacks, sock puppetry, edit warring, impersonation, breaching an Arbcom ban, and attempting to (promptly) put TOW führer Jimbo Wales in his place. After all of this, one would think this user would be permanently banned and driven out of Wikipedia land. Wrong. She currently holds an admin position, despite her history and clear disregard for site policy.

Gwen Gale's Wikipedia story - the story of lies, nastiness, bulling,violating rulings of arbcom and abusing administrative tools
- About Fred Bauder, a member of ArbCom
- About Wikipedians, this one she deleted herself when unruly user Wyss transformed to abusive administrator Gwen Gale
In November of 2005 Wyss's sexual toys were taken away. Poor lady was banned from making homosexuality/bisexuality edits. She was even prohibited from correcting the spelling of "gay". How embarrassing! She was also placed on indefinite probation, and then Wyss made a new account The Witch because she was interrupted in the middle of her monosex and because
More personal attacks followed:
The above explains why administrator Gwen Gale does not want anything to do with the nasty Witch. She reverted this valid redirect to her user page and the user who made this redirect was blocked for vandalism.
In her first RfA Gwen Gale was asked about The Witch. She lied
She lied. She used it "to evade the arbcom ruling".
Testimonials taken from Gwen Gale's first RfA
Gwen bitterly moaned about her unsuccessful RfA.
Just five months later wikipediots allowed Gwen Gale to become an administrator - a black day for Wikipedia.
CONFLICT of INTEREST. Wait a minute. Didn't Gwen Gale wrote two articles about herself a year before? The articles were flushed out but the screen shots of their history exist: History of the bio article of Heidi Wyss (Gwen Gale) and history of the article about a novel written by Heidi Wyss (Gwen Gale). She promotes her articles about herself everywhere she could
- "* Gormglaith (novel) Depicts an all female society in which people mix their genes together through technology to have normal pregnancies. Gwen Gale 18:28, 13 September 2007 (UTC)"
- Adds link to "Noteworthy separatist feminists: Heidi Wyss" to an article.
When Gwen Gale was still Wyss she had this to say about wikipedia
So Wyss wanted to talk about "sock puppets". Let's talk about sock puppets then. Gwen Gale made quite a few appearances on Wikipedia:
- User Wyss
- User The Witch
- Editing as IP#18.104.22.168, violates her topic ban and adds a link to her own lesbian novel to article Lesbian science fiction
- Editing as IP#22.214.171.124, violates her topic ban in article Lesbian science fiction
- Editing as IP#126.96.36.199, violates her topic ban and adds a link to her own lesbian novel to article Feminist science fiction
- Editing as IP#188.8.131.52, violates her topic ban and adds a link to her own lesbian novel to article Separatist feminism
- She used various IPs to write two articles about herself Heidi Wyss and Gormglaith (novel).
2008 ArbCom election
In six months after Gwen gale became an administrator she decided she wanted more power because the more power she has the more harm she could do. One of the best places to do harm is Wikipedia's Arbitration Committee.
Testimonials taken from Gwen Gale's ArbCom bid
Gwen Gale withdrew her candidacy from the election.
December 1, 2008 was not a happy day for Gwen Gale. Not only she was forced to withdraw her candidacy from Arbitration Committee election, but both articles she and her socks wrote about herself were nominated on deletion for being not notable.
User Wyss talk page history was deleted by Fred Bauder. When during her RfA Gwen Gale was questioned about this deletion.As usually she lied: "The talk pages were sprinkled with bits of personal information I'd disclosed about myself in causal exchanges and a certain user had homed in on who I was, where I lived and so on." In reality with the deletion of her talk page history most links used in evidences presented against her in arbitration case are gone. Try one, you'll see nothing.
More lies, more personal attacks
In July 2005 Wyss addressed to administrator Mel Etitis with this rant
Maybe in July of 2005 she did not have a sock account, but she was about to make one The Witch, not to mention editing as IPs.
Gwen's reaction to 24 hours block "Too many trolls and fools after all, I guess.There are too many of them for me here, too many role-playing troll admins, too many troll sockpuppet editors. Bye then. Gwen Gale 06:29, 1 April 2007 (UTC)"
Gwen Gale - a bully administrator
- User Super Badnik's story. The block was reverted by another administrator.

Recent misuse of administrative tools
After witchy Wyss became bitchy administrator Gwen Gale she's started misusing her tools to cover up her shitty history. Here Gwen Gale deletes history of Wyss's talk page "User request to delete page in own userspace: user thought this had been done years ago". Interesting she refers to herself as to some unknown to her user: "User request to delete page". She lies that this page is in her "own userspace". She deleted the only page that had talk history of Wyss. The date of this misuse of administrative tools is 16 July, 2011.
Heidi Wyss struggles in a spider web
If you missed on articles Wyss wrote about herself on Wikipedia, do not worry. She wrote a few more the same ones on different encyclopedias as well. Wyss's first user name on feministSF wiki was Spidermite. At her user page she says:
Everything was fine with the two articles until Wyss became Wikipedia administrator Gwen Gale. In 2008 somebody started adding to the articles reviews and links that Wyss did not like. She made four sock accounts to revert IP user
