After reading WP:ANI once more, and having a "discussion" with Ambi (who seems to think that simply being an admin on this forum is justification for banning me from #wikipedia), I would like to add to my above statement/rant.
I do not mean to have the appearance that I am gloating at Katefan0's departure. It is a shame that this exceptional admin left the project over her dispute with Brandt. However, the harsh truth is that the only person responsible for her choice to leave wikipedia is Katefan0. Brandt's actions may have prompted her, true, but the only person responsible for Brandt's actions is Daniel himself. I urge you to take up your gripes with Mr. Brandt on this issue, rather than using this forum, and the adminstrators of it, as scapegoats.
I do not condone stalking of admins, regular editors, or anyone for that matter, as some (Read: Rebecca) have alleged. I tolerate Brandt's behavior because he appears to be well within his rights with his actions. This doesn't mean I agree with his actions, and I still often fail to see the point of the hivemind pages, but I understand and respect his reasoning for doing so. Whether or not I or another admin on this board took action against him, however, would not stop Brandt from continuuing to focus on collecting data about adminstrators.
Besides, Brandt collects his data on Wikipedia Watch. Wikipedia Watch is considered a notable website, and has it's own article on Wikipedia. This forum is, as often described by editors of Wikipedia, a non-notable troll board. Which really had the larger effect?
As for other editors who have decided to leave Wikipedia, again, they are old enough to think for themselves. Nobody here forced SlimVirgin, or FloNight, or Katefan0, or any other Wikipedia admin to leave Wikipedia. (I am not entirely convinced that SlimVirgin's departure is sincere, but will not comment further on it at this time). I did not work with FloNight, although (s)he did raise a good question towards me on WP:ANI. I was not intending by that post to encourage Amorrow to continue to harrass MusicalLinguist or other admins. First of all, I had a misconception was that it was amorrow that was being harrassed. And I also have an interest, of a sort, in seeing whether or not admins look at what they are reverting before they revert it. In retrospect, however, I can see that first of all, Amorrow was rightfully banned from Wikipedia, for harrassing and bullying many users. And second of all, my comment was innappropriate to post in that form, and publicly. I do not see a problem with encouraging admins to look before they rollback, but I did not intend to encourage a troll to harras the admins.
