Not sure if an admin, but I remember him as a 'true believer' type. Has 'retired' after a rancorous comment on 'the Wales' page

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...oldid=427675867

Naturally Wales hats it with the comment that it is nothing to do with him, and how can he possibly help.

This all seems vaguely familiar.

The version he posted. on Village Pump(!) is much better since there is additional material. Apparently not everyone sees things quite the same way. I hope Cuerden finds a new hobby which involves a more supportive environment and perhaps some social interaction with real, live people.

Worth reading through.

What a blatant lie. I have two blocks to prove not so.

Peter Damian is a fucktard.

Now, let's see this precious ArbCom delete that sentence.

I feel sorry for the poor schlub but this seems like overkill. No one at VP addresses Arbcom's ability to deal with his on-wiki grievance, just that he's stupid for using his real name and probably a drama queen. AGF, amirite?

If he had simply released the audio recording of the Board Candidates edition of Wikivoices, that would have probably freed up about 6 hours of his time for studying, rather than struggling to explain why the file couldn't be released.

This jerk gets no sympathy from me.

NTWW wasn't exactly the most followed thing.... I doubt it actually made a difference either way.

The "difference" is that about 10 people's two hours of time and sincerity was utterly wasted.
