He misused the viewdeleted function to assist in copyright violations and then gave an explanation:
Firstly, I am rather unhappy with how Vanessa (the journalist) represented my statements. When I said "maybe vengeful", it was rather tongue-in-cheek and intentionally self-deprecating. I had no idea she would cite me in that way.
Note, the only reason why I didn't go through all that trouble with contesting the OTRS ticket was because I discovered this action a year and and a third after it happened, didn't feel like going through a dozen different AN archives to find out what triggered it, and I was busy with life at the time (scholarship applications, job-seeking, as you can see). I did not really feel like challenging another administrator and thus I did not restore it. Maybe I should have done this in the first place.
But I was superbly annoyed by Unicru, not actually because I was unable to find retail positions -- I easily found others; I mentioned this to Vanessa but she didn't say this in the article. My annoyance was because it appeared to be purporting that "tests" based on a Myers-Briggs typology were a valid way of evaluating worker efficiency, that people who enjoy solitude (some time off reflecting on the lake by yourself, you know!) and people who don't think every trouble of their own is always their own fault, made bad workers.
I did not really agree that it was a copyright violation. (I totally empathise with the woman quoted who reviewed her legal rights. Furthermore, I had no idea the journalist would call the article a culture of cheating; to me, it was something else entirely.) It's just at the time I didn't really feel like getting involved in the bureaucracy again -- I love you all but I thought I would get back to hardcore dispute resolution at some point later in my life, you know? I suppose a basic courtesy would have had been to inform people what I had done, and I regret that.
Furthermore, answer tests don't really belong in an article, in as much you don't publish the source code of the Linux kernel to the Linux article. That was really the final reason why I did not pursue a reversal of the deletion. Even I MYSELF would have deleted it anyway had it been there, for copyediting reasons. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a dumping ground.
Now on the other hand, I didn't really see anything problematic about viewing the deleted revision. It wasn't libellous or slanderous. It was a rather handy list of what you're "supposed" to answer and why Unicru was ridiculous. It wasn't as much for the purposes of allowing other people to "cheat" and take advantage of the system, in as much that telling someone about to take a rehabilitation test in North Korea that you should say "strongly agree" to the question "Kim Jung-Il" is a Great Leader is helping them cheat. I mean, I quite discovered the idea that you weren't supposed to answer honestly (e.g. that you were an introvert at heart) quite too late. In fact, I majorly disagree that publishing a key of this sort amounts to "cheating". I hope it's quite self-evident. The only reason why I didn't document the absurdity of the test line by line itself -- was that I thought someone else had done it. When I first viewed the article for the first time, I was expecting to see a 40kb+ article with an NPOV dispute where some editors would have brought up the controversy over some of Unicru's questions. Instead I found a stub.
I am fairly certain you are not legally prohibited from ridiculing personality tests consisting of questions like "you like to be alone," etc. What I was trying to point out to Vanessa was an argument not unlike that found in Myers-Briggs#Unscientific_basis_of_the_theory. If I thought it was wrong for me or a "misuse" of admin tools to have recovered deleted material in that way, I would have not admitted that to the Wall Street Journal with my real name!!
RE: concerning my two accounts. I had this whole androgyny/tomboy fetish when I was 11 and that was the basis of many of my internet personalities. (Also, at the time, despite being male, I had this urge to prove to the world that girls could do anything boys can.) With time though I found that I grew out of it, that it became rather a hindrance not to be able to show my real self, and to avoid the public embarrassment of having to admit it, I have since mostly edited with my real name (unless I found something that needed sysop tools to fix). As you can see, I have had not much free time to do that much editing either. I guess I don't need two accounts now, huh? I had no idea people would kick up a fuss over this.
