Posting this at Jimbo's request:
'''"I have asked SirFozzie to quote me on-wiki because I am traveling a lot this week and will not have time to visit the issue directly until Friday. I support that this investigation continue, and request that it be done in a kind, thoughtful, loving way, and that any trolling be dealt with firmly. An investigation is not a negative mark against the accounts involved, and the best possible outcome is a firm confidence that the charges are not true."'''

For those not familiar with Jimbo-speak, allow me to translate:"done in a kind, thoughtful, loving way"
= done in a manner most favorable to my friend, Mr. Gary "Mannisox" Weiss"any trolling be dealt with firmly"
= admins are expected to permaban all editors stating or suggesting 1) that Weiss=Mantanmoreland=Sammiharris, or 2) that Mantanmoreland be banned or put on restrictions. Do not embarrass your God-King by forcing Him to do the banning personally!"An investigation is not a negative mark against the accounts involved"
= this "investigation" is bullshit and should have never began"the best possible outcome is a firm confidence that the charges are not true"
= the "investigation" had better
come out in favor of Weiss. Otherwise, there will be plenty of permabans to go around. And perhaps also a desysopping for SirFozzie for showing such poor judgment in enabling all this trolling to begin with.
This email confirms what I have suspected for some time now: the reason that there is no whiff of this scandal on Jimbo's talk page to now is that the various members of the NSS cabal (including Jimbo as its head) have been privately emailing each other like mad, and all other knowledgeable parties still left on WP are too afraid to post there. Rest assured that the NSS cabal will institute the clampdown on this matter. It is of the utmost importance that Mannisox's wiki-skirts be kept clean
