WT:RFA says that RFA is dying for lack of new candidates. I say, that's great. Wikipedia is finally getting what it deserves for the way it treated candidates like me.

With your this history of trolling, socking, and all-around disruptive behavior, you're far and away a large net negative to the Wikipedia.

If you feel that strongly about my contributions -- more than 350 new articles and 10,000 edits each to mainspace and non-mainspace -- then go ahead and oppose my reinstatement when I apply for reinstatement as an editor later this year. I'm sure you're aware that I'm indef blocked for making one bad edit. But I will say this: I sincerely wanted to be an admin, and I had every right to ask for adminship each of those four times. That was not trolling. I will also say this: much of what the community said about me, especially in the last request (Shalom Yechiel), was SIMPLY NOT TRUE. I will never forget this, and I will never forgive.

Why do you so badly want to be let in to a community that apparently hates you?

Yeah, bloody funniest ever. I remember falling off my chair laughing.

Hey, shouldn't that be the other way around? If you should ever forget, forgiving is you know rather beside the point!

I don't troll and I don't sock, but I am an incorrigible prick. .333 is a respectable average...if you're a baseball player...but at least it's something to hang your hat on, chief.

The community can go to hell. I just want to be able to edit the encyclopedia in peace.

I've done far more than you and my one year ban is still not up after 3 years. So stop your whining.

What a crappy game! Any decent cricketer should top 30 average.

Doesn't really matter, but the response was to Shalom talking about article writing.
