He resigned his admin tools and retired but I guess he decided to come back. He's not currently an admin, though.

He thought he was going to retire permanently but decided against it. His userpage should be removed from the category Administrators open to recall, however.

I was an administrator, having become one on 6 June 2008. I resigned that position on 10 March 2009. As of 10 March 2009, whether I will edit wikipedia again remains an open question.

The info has been updated, and from it I imagine that he/she might be useful if he/she agreed to the initiative described elsewhere about a mass semi-protection of BLP articles. Since you seem to know his/her motivations, Anonymous, may be you or someone else who does can ask him/her?

He's a dedicated article writer and is an asset to WP Cheshire. What have you done lately to improve Wikipedia, other than slag good people off here?

You must spend an awful lot of time in the bathroom, given all of the shit you produce.

There, now I hope everyone has horrifically bad visuals next time they visit the toilet.

Well, you're not really such a bad sort, Malley Baby. You do have talent as a writer -- really, don't give your stuff away for free without byline credit. Get recognized and get paid for your wordplay. You're one of the very few in the Wiki aviary who has the ability to fly away to a better nest. smile.gif

I rather thought he/she had made a mistake in the id used, and that it should have been "A horse with no anus", given that there is a whole load of shit being produced, but no way of getting rid of it, and so he is permanently totally full of it...
