...fun of open editing fundamentalists. Like I said. Right there above.

If you don't like my walls, you don't have to read them. Oh wait. You don't.

Haha, right. I like how you've become an epic douchebag after getting on the AC.

At least you're amusing.

You asked a question I just answered. I'm sorry for being frustrated with you.

I don't have an issue with you. I'd wish you'd drop the axe.

Mmhmm. Ya right, honey. It ain't just me. My observation about your douchebaggery is not an original one.

Say, what happened to Rootology? I thought this was supposed to be our opportunity to vivisect him.

Hm thread drift. And theres never a mod around to stop it.

I always keep a close eye on pages I unprotect.

Bit of a case study...

Avraham's page was one of the ones I downgraded from permanent semi back on July 16 and, as promised, kept a close eye on it.

Since then, the page was edited by 5 distinct good-faith IPs

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...oldid=304258488
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...oldid=304486400

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...oldid=311114968
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...oldid=311883500

and only just now (nearly 2 months later) was a target of vandalism, and it was the childish kind that you can just brush off your shoulders.

He actually stayed retired, contrary to many of your expectations. Although he came out of retirement for one post... a support !vote at EveryKing 6...
