BTW did somebody else experienced govcom lying on wiki about the private communications between them and you?


Absolutely. Arbidiots did so to me time after time, and I know of quite a few others with the same experience.




But why would they do it? Why they cannot be simply honest?

By natural selection.

An honest person is an easy target on Wikipedia and will have a tough time becoming a member of Arbcom, or even an administrator.

That should be the case, but I'll bet it continues.

Well, with the third try they found an admin who gave in to a very noisy, very stinky and very dishonest majority.

But no worries my "15 minutes" will last forever, and not because of RfC, but because of this RfC bullies admin from English Wikipedia made complete fools of themselves on Meta.

Here goes Beeblebrox (see edit summary)

fuck this site and the abusive cowards that for the most part administrate it


Here goes SarekOfVulcan, trying to deadminship an admin it did not like

And Future Perfect at Sunrise got itself blocked.

But the funniest part of all is that these bullies from English Wikipedia who are misusing their tools while involved are now voting to add a policy about involved admins at Meta http://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?titl...s&oldid=3490868 biggrin.gif
