Between SlimVirgin's harassment over Cirt and the arbcom leaks who would not retire?

It would be interesting if despite the patriarchy blame game on the gender gap if it was female on female harassment that caused the retirement.

Getting our metaphors in a twist, are we? I've never seen a horse biting dust, especially not if it's in a nice pasture. biggrin.gif

Yeah, this one's too bad. Shell was actually one of the better, more reasonable folks on there. Didn't someone predict somewhere over here that it as a result of this latest mess, it was going to be the good ones that leave, while the bad ones stay?

A sewage drain or a cesspool can have a diamond floating in it.

(ok, that's a little too much, going the other way. Shell seems like decent people. Not the savior of Wikipedia or anything but just plain decent people)

I believe her resignation is in protest to the recent blanking of my Wikipedia User page.

Ncmvocalist has now written on WP that Shell's resignation was inevitable. I can more easily imagine that there were real life pressures that brought this on.

Signpost headline:

Arbitrator Resigns
Reality Penetrates Shell


Horsey, no comments about Shell penetrating.

Thank you. The forum online spellchecker seems to be down. The auto humor-tag bot also.

Nmvocalist has submitted his personal views on Shell Kinney's resignation in the latest edition of Signpost, which he edits:

Arbitrator resigns
* The Committee announced that Shell Kinney resigned from her position as an arbitrator. A few hours before the announcement was made official, Shell Kinney put a "retired" tag on her userpage with an edit summary that said "update". Her name was also removed from the list of current members of the Arbitration Committee.
* The resignation has come at a time where several email threads of arbcom-l, the Committee's non-public mailing list, continue to be leaked on Wikipedia Review. See also last week's Signpost coverage.

I can't see him editing Signpost for very much longer.

Why not? Wikipedia has grown incredibly toxic since I joined in 2006. He's following "community norms." Besides, who would have the authority to remove him?

It was toxic when you joined, you just didn't realize it at the time.
