...Sue can frankly stick it up her arachnid ass until that moment she accepts that comment off of moderation.

I think Charlotte Webb is going to be shocked at this particular vulgarity.

Is this like wiping your ass with silk, as I've heard from the Merovingian?

No, not the Meringue-ian. yecch.gif

Sue, I can see from the serial numbers of the comments that you have released 11 of 45* comments here.

For the benefit of those respondents who are perplexed as to your criteria for selecting which comments to release from moderation, would you be kind enough to outline your criteria?

* Upon posting, I find the serial number has increased by 4, so Sue had actually released 11 of 49 comments (excluding the 2 of her own).

Silly Rabbit, it's “the blog where anyone can comment”.

Not to worry, Barry, they’re working on an oversight button as we speak.

Well, as some of us speak.

Responding to some BS by Sage

And some ranker BS by Sue Gardner

“I approve the majority”

20 out of 85 is a WP:MAJORITY.

That’s okay, we’re starting a special subforum at The Wikipedia Review dedicated to the blog posts by our members that are WP:CENSORED here.

In the interest of Fairness in Statistics, please note that the scope of the serial numbers is the whole blog site since its inception; they do not reset for each new post. So over the scope of her blog, Sue has released 66 of 85 posts, which (according to my math) is a 78% supermajority.

I have to agree with Sue that some of the posts that did not pass muster were plausibly rejected because they did not exemplify thoughtful additions to the conversation.

IDNKT, but thanks for the info.

Are you counting her own posts in the supermajority?

In the interest of both Accuracy and Fairness in Statistics, one should subtract from both the numerator and denominator the number of Sue's own comments.

Sue has added 17 of her own comments, so (excluding hers) the ratio should be (66 - 17) / (85 - 17) = 49 / 68 = 72%.

On 3rd thought, that begins to look like a WR:BADIDEA.

At first Sue Gardner wrote such ludicrous things that I felt compelled to reply — as if Local Color hadn't already taught us what a WP:Φlytrap that brand of Rediculosity™ will always be — but her blog degenerated into Hive Buzz so quickly that it's not really worth the candle to drop by there anymore, just like its 4bear, the WikiEnList.
