If anything needs to show how corrupt Arbitrators as a whole are, their actions towards Elen should be enough evidence for a community ban. Unfortunately, they scarred too many of the legitimate editors into ever removing those problematic users who manipulated and gained their way into seats of power on a site they have little purpose ever being on to begin with.

Do you mean "If anything is needed to show"? If they've ruddy scarred any users, they should be charged with assault. Still, if they've scarred legitimate users into removing problematic users, that isn't a bad thing.

No. I mean anything. The only logical grammar fix you could suggest is "Do you mean 'If anyone needs to show'." You didn't suggest that because you didn't get that I said thing - people, newspapers, reports, studies, etc.

Try to learn English before responding next time.

Obviously, attempting to talk to you about any of this is an exercise in the ridiculous. In fact, it's akin to speaking clear and concise advanced English with someone who is an ELL, rather an adult who claims English as their first language.
