As usual, I couldn't figure out what the heck she was going on about. She probably just misses the dramahs.
It's not an unprecedented stunt. A whole bunch of users who think that they have been wrongly sanctioned for something or other go and make some minor non-controversial edits which are just on the borderline of their sanction and then run to AE and file a report on themselves to show the whole goddamn universe, aliens on Alpha Centauri and all, how unfair the sanction is. It's basically a big flashing sign saying "Look at me! Look at me! Hey guys! You're not looking at me!?!?"
Russavia (who some of you have had the pleasure of meeting here on WR) pulled it twice I think. Communicat (who you've also made acquittance with) tried something almost similar but was just too crazy to be able to pull something as "delicate" as this.
Now, if any of these whining drama queens actually had the balls to go and do a non-minor controversial edit which is way over the line of their sanction, then maybe they'd earn some respect from me. Still I thnk they should get banned for it - as should Durova here and all who proceeded her in these idiotic endeavors - and in a way that's the whole point - don't go crying out for attention unless there is a real risk of getting hurt, or else this attention seeking is not credible - but it would be a "ban with respect" kind of a ban.
And of course AE is a perfect place for that kind of thing.
