Re: ArbCom 2018 election

I'd like to think that my question (that wasn't a big deal for any regulars, but looked pretty bad for irregulars who would have been just checking the questions page which got 4500 pageviews) made the difference on Drmies not getting elected. 8-)

Re: Sagecandor returns

I haven't seen X1 before, I think. You mention that there aren't any behauvioral patterns, but see his talk page, he seems to be starting a new row often just like Cirt.

There is a new suspected Cirt sockpuppet. Any opinions? Atleast it's suspect that it had edited devil's triangle (something that Cirt edited in Wiktionary too).

Cambodian genocide convictions fail at ITN/C

I've been following the Khmer Rouge Tribunal since 2014, when the original convictions for crimes against humanity were given. The UN-approved tribunal was started in 2006. I was hoping that they manage to process the genocide charges before the indictees pass away, as two already had. This was a ma...

Re: ArbCom 2018 election

Some have said Lourdes is female, though I don't see any clear acknowledgment of such in the obvious places. Provided it is true, I would gives Lourdes a good shot at making it up there if anyone actually mentions it in some place regular voters will see it. I like Lourdes for making the incivility...

Re: BullRangifer

Some of his comments when discussing QW were pretty bizarre: ... Context, context, context! That's what determines whether we should use a source or not. Even if we don't use the source in a given situation, that doesn't mean it's "unreliable", and QW is reliable, get that straight. Reliable doesn't...

Re: BullRangifer

Just check the Sucks thread. There was also a 2007 ArbCom case about BullRangifer aka Fyslee (his previous nick on Wikipedia): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Requests_for_arbitration/Barrett_v._Rosenthal That had a a fairly critical finding on him. It's funny that despite that, he has conti...

Re: Breitbart Banned as Reliable Source

Those comments about threats or jokes of violence being ok because you have to fight antisemites "by any means necessary" (which itself is a phrase used by activists who commit to violence) or per "ignore all rules" are pretty crazy. It just shows these people are willing to defend literally everyth...

Re: Breitbart Banned as Reliable Source

I have never seen "go to the wall" used synonymously with "up against the wall". Neither dictionary I linked to gives this meaning of the idiom (because it doesn't exist). Neither of the news links you gave use "go to the wall"; they both use "up against the wall". The only source for this dubious ...

Re: Breitbart Banned as Reliable Source

We can't even give Peter credit here in the respect of dealing discourteously with a vandal, because he specifically targeted a broadly defined group of "transphobes" with his removal implying such a group consists of anyone who holds a similar position. In other words, Peter would seem to calling ...
