I'd say so, and even a lot of the admins have said that at one time or another, but that doesn't stop them from sticking around.

It just demonstrates that they can not tolerate dissent by even the most moderate and civil of our members.

You know how the hero jumps off the train just before the train wreck, but still watches as it plunges over the chasm?

It's hard not to watch the ending of a disaster movie.

Looks to be pretty strongly going towards keep at this point. We'll see if that continues, but I doubt they'd be able to manage a consensus to delete the way things look. That's not to say that we can't get an odd decision by the closing admin (depending on who it is), though.

And here I thought KM was one of our most rabidly pro-Wikipedia members!

Well, it just shows to go ya that I've been falling down on the job.

There's nothing for it but to start giving her the old DT treatment.

Sorry, KM, this hurts me more than it does you, but it's the only way to keep your history in the good graces of the history-rewriting team at the World's Most Hypocritical Non-Censored Website™.

Well, she did use the term "sad retard," which is probably offensive to both sad people and retards.

Actually, most of the people I know who suffer from Down's Syndrome are reasonably happy... maybe they just don't know any better. unsure.gif

I had to say I hadn't even noticed this. I'm not too fussed, it seems to be heading towards keep anyway and even if it wasn't I wouldn't be bothered. People place too much importance on their userpages.

Oh sorry, I didn't check the first post. I just saw that KamrynMatika was the last person to post, thought he/she started it.
