Even if (in the unlikely chance) that they're not ban evading, it's still a problem; a single issue wonk with a political agenda.

Even if the suspension was released (which I don't think it was), this is still probably sockpuppetry, but it's agenda-based editing either way.

Banned, needs cleanup.

I kind of agree with the one on Characters.Wreck It Ralph Other Characters, though — the whole trope entry as it stands is speculation on why the character was chosen and attributing an agenda to the filmmakers without evidence. It doesn't say anything about how she fits the trope description.

The general rule here is ban evader edits, especially serial ban evaders, are reverted on principle but can be readded by someone else if a particular edit was actually legitimate.

Doesn't sound like the case here though since, as you say, it's speculation without evidence and doesn't have an explanation about how it fits the trope.

In this case it was the deletion of the example by a banevader that was reverted on principle. ~Mr Death was kind enough to rewrite the example from speculative to objective.

Whether edits by ban evaders are reverted by default or not is really up to the tropers. It is allowed to do so but by no means mandatory.
