The answer to Wikipedia’s dilemma is simple: put good-looking people in charge.

Very good of you to think of me, Horse. But I'm rather busy on one or two other WMF sites at present.

As for RfA opposes, nothing tops DougTech's "too many admins" spam, but carping about % of edit summary usage is certainly in the top 5.


I doubt it. I've seen many worse reasons. Ask Kurt.

Wow, connecting WP with the real world??? Shocking. Before having sex, should I ask my doctor to tell her that my penis is long enough?

For enough money they'll lie to anyone.

Self-nomination is actually a pretty good reason to oppose.

Regardless, Kurt is the expert on frivolous opposes, and opposing based on edit summary is nothing.

Did you miss what this thread was about? It's about Shalom claiming some opposes are dumb, and then others chiming in about what is and isn't frivolous.

When you say "he" do you mean me? If so then the answer is that I have so many calls on my time that sometimes I miss your stupidity, and it takes me a while to catch up.

Who is the more stupid? The one arguing with the idiot or the idiot? Are you claiming that I'm lying?

Malley is in a period of feeling sorry for himself again.

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...oldid=426648432

"I can see as well as anyone else that I don't fit in here."

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...oldid=426645784

"I have way more enemies than friends here, and those who try to chase me away, believing that they're in some kind of pack and manoeuvring for position (let's see if we can get Malleus blocked, that's worth RfA brownie points), ought to examine their consciences. "

I'll amend the above to "Poor old fool!"

"Too many admins" is in fact also under appreciated. It may not be true, but that's an empirical question. Logically, it's perfectly valid.

Ever noticed something about Mally? He marks a lot of iffy articles patrolled.

And then, within a few weeks, roughly 30-40% of them get deleted "out-of-process" by assorted admins.
Meaning, I can't find AFDs or other discussions about them.
