Well, of all the not-so-retired users, he's probably my favorite. He likes to make war on BLP defamers.
Yes, he does, but that power has gone to his head. He thinks his contributions to the almighty wiki are far greater than they really are.
You could say that about most Wikipedians. I always find it ironic when reading the noticeboards how the very people accusing others of being "vested contributors" are vested contributors themselves. Wikipedians should know: Never complain about the logs in others' eyes until you remove the lumberyard from your own!
Unless you are a part of a group with strong social and political power with a similar ideology, it is nearly impossible to get anything done on Wikipedia for good or ill. Otherwise, you are a Sisyphus or Don Quixote with no hope of accomplishing your goals. Rob can fight valiantly for BLP subjects and be right
in a real world sense (and even by Wikipedia's standards), but is he but one man. And when you see one man against the Wiki, bet on the Wiki.
