I haven't seen any threads about this guy (please merge if there are). All the signs are that he actually isn't leaving. He leaves obligatory message on Wales talk pagehttp://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...id=267644173#Hi
with a link to an enormous
rant on his arbitration pagehttp://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...nk_I_am_leaving
Yet the sentiments he expresses are those we can all share:
I started in 2004 with the dream of generously sharing all knowledge with the rest of the world, and end-up in 2009 feeling like I am trying to contribute within the politics and proceedures of a police state. Administrators are increasing drastically in numbers, while editors are dwindling and running away (Signpost article). Control is good, over-control and repression of volunteer enthusiams is not and may probably be driving away the very energy that helped develop this project in its initial stages. Given the statistical trends, and given the atmosphere around here, I would be surprised if Wikipedia wasn't deserted two years from now. This is really sad.
"A police state typically exhibits elements of totalitarianism and social control, and there is usually little or no distinction between the law and the exercise of political power by the executive. The inhabitants of a police state experience restrictions on their mobility, and on their freedom to express or communicate political or other views, which are subject to police monitoring or enforcement."
What's the story on this arbitration?
