SarekOfVulcan (T-C-L-K-R-D) has handed in his admin bits. He's also a member here. I'm sure his little tiff with Ottava didn't help.

Nor all that time he followed SagitRiverQueen around Wikipedia, cleaning up like the clowns following the horse platoon in a parade. A job which cannot have been fun, but somebody had to do it.

Live long and prosper, Sarek. When Earth developed warp drive, your people should have ignored them.

He came to IRC and we didn't fight. I have no problem with admin who I feel are abusive once they are no longer admin.

Actually Sagit was an elephant platoon.

With her gone for awhile, Sarek is gathered to his admin-fathers. His greatest work is done.

Now, now... he resigned, remember? This is the time to be congratulatory and supportive, to help Mr. Sarek celebrate his new-found freedom and soul. To help him find whatever inner coolness and cultural sensitivity he might have that's been suppressed for so long by the scourge of Wikipedianism! smile.gif

Maybe we could even help by offering to change his WR member-name to something more adult and less geeky-sounding, like "GarrettOfSeattle" or "FitzgeraldOfProvidence."

(Here's another NNP autobiography by the way, which will hopefully be "speedied" by the time anyone reads this.)

Only if I can please apply electrodes to his genitals? Pretty please?

Just keep it down to 60 volts, OK? No need for permanent tissue damage...

I demand you hook him up in parallel with SagitRiverQueen. Somehow.

Whatever, I'll bet she yells first.

"It's still experimental, but it does look promising. We would need such great amounts of blood that, even if the drug worked on the Vulcans - which I'm doubtful - it would still drain Sarek to a critical level."

smile.gif Very good.

My thought was that due to Sarek's green blood, Sagit left WP with a bad taste in her mouth. Fortunately, his ancestors spawned in very different ocean than ours. dry.gif

For a while, before he finally nuked Sagit from orbit, I thought nothing was going to work to remove SagitRiverQueen from WP short of flushing its ventolating system with radioactive waste. I always wondered why that "cure" wasn't worse than the disease. blink.gif Not that WP would notice.

That didn't really play into it at all -- I kinda gave up on listening to Ottava when his second edit to WP Freemasonry was to demand that a new project be started with Real Freemasons. :-) It was just Real Life biting a little harder than usual, so I figured one fewer responsibility would be helpful.

Sorry, I'm still editing Wikipedia -- just handed in the bit. It's much easier to shrug and walk away when there's much less you can do about things. :-)

That project was being dominated by three people who attacked and bullied everyone else and then used their ownership of the project to claim the ability to regulate any matter on Freemasonry. It was so bad that those people tried to claim that this page was of a non-notable lodge simply because they didn't make the page. The same people threw a fit that there were highly reliable sources used about Christopher Smart and his Freemasonry with a laughable claim that "all Freemasons were logged" even though there are multiple known fires that destroyed records if there even were well kept records.

Heh. And the fact that the most notable claim in the article was sourced only to the lodge's own website at the time couldn't possibly have had anything to do with it, no siree.....

You'd think that there wouldn't be reliable sources when there is a lodge that claims to be the first? First thing to do in an AfD is to look for sources, you know. Its right there in the instructions. How did you become an admin without knowing that?

By the way, it is a very bullshit move to nominate a page for deletion not only a few hours after creation but while it was being expanded. Shameful, just shameful.
