With the way SV was depicted here, I'm surprised she supported him and even saying it's time for a change.
It might seem that way at first glance, but remember, SlimVirgin is about as smart as a Wikipedian can get (putting aside the usual complaints about her tactics and agendas and so forth). CHL and SirFozzie were probably the two WP'ers who were most instrumental in finally demonstrating, with lots and lots of evidence, that Mantanmoreland (T-C-L-K-R-D)
really was a sock-master, not to mention that he was Gary Weiss, and supporting their ArbCom bids now is a good (and inexpensive) way for Slimmy to show that she's let go of that whole business and that there's no hard feelings (or at least no public hard feelings). What has she got to lose, really? She knows they're both fundamentally decent people. (And I should also point out that Grace Note (T-C-L-K-R-D)
is fundamentally not-so-decent,
to say the least!
It's certainly what I would have done, and of course, anything to keep 'em guessing is usually good when playing the WP political game at such a high level.

Ber - muuuuuuu - daaaaaa....
For the record, no, I'm not returning to Wikipedia or here, but I figured I might as well say something. Besides, I'm enjoying retirement too much.
As I recall, you were one of those folks who'd included a reference to your WP account in a web page (site?) that you created yourself that had your name on it, so you're in what we call "Category D." Not that this makes you a bad person or anything like that, of course... to the contrary! But just so everyone understands, the "D" stands for "Doesn't," as in "Not our job to protect his anonymity if he D
oesn't protect it himself," yada yada yada.
Anyway, it is always nice to see you drop by. Hope the weather is nice, wherever you are...
