You've got WormThatTurned turning in bullshit/false evidence after "recusing" himself from the case, getting called out on it, rightly, and then thrashing about.


I don't really get this line of attack. That he recused himself just means he's too involved in the matter to adjudicate it impartially, it has no affect whatsoever on his ability or right to comment on the case or give evidence. Arb cases, AN, ANI, Enforcement, etc... are chock full of "involved" commenters

When was the last time that you saw a judge recuse themselves from a case for being involved and then turn around and file a deposition?


I don't think such examples are terribly applicable to the insular Wiki-world. A recused Arb commenting or giving evidence doesn't carry any more weight then the input of others.


Please.

Er, you're welcome?

Sorry, but the premise is just dumb. If this were 2005 and we were talking about the Jayjgs of the "do you have my back tonight?" crowd, then yea it'd probably be pretty shady. But I think at present, the Arb committee is as fractured and non-cabalistic as it ever has been, and the assumption that they'll just blindly accept whatever evidence that Worm has to give as the gospel truth is a bit naive.

First off, this is Wikipedia's Arbitration Committee. "As fractured and non-cabalistic as it ever has been" might get them to a level where, in almost any other organization, they would still be seen as hopelessly rigid, opaque, and probably corrupt. (Also, it's possible for a group to be "fractured" and still be "cabalistic," and vice-versa.)

More to the point, it doesn't matter if they treat the so-called "recused" member's evidence as "gospel truth"; the point is that Mr. Worm is making his feelings known explicitly, and the rest know that in future they all have to work with him in a far closer way than they have to work with either of the two respondents. Of course it matters to them what he says, irrespective of the fact that he's just giving his own hysterically-overblown interpretations of behavior on Mr. Wolfowitz's part that was, in almost every case, perfectly normal in a conflict-rich environment like Wikipedia's.

Now, it's possible that none of the other Arbcom members actually like or respect Mr. Worm, and indeed it's even possible that they all hate him with the heat of a thousand suns, etc., etc. If that's true, then I suppose it's all fine and dandy as far as this case is concerned. But unless they know that, most people looking at this from the outside are still going to think almost immediately that the fix is in.

I thought about this. Has anyone here heard anyone by the coffee machine or water cooler talking about stabbing people through the windpipe or being sodomised with lube or whatever? If you did overhear that, would you edge nervously towards the door?

Yep, in the same way that Freetards seem amazed that threats on Twitter should be deemed worthy of police action, it seems that people think it is perfectly acceptable to leave their brains and morals behind when stepping over the Internet threshold. I am sick of idiots posting on blogs about how we must grow thicker skins and people being idiots is what you must accept. I know that it is not a given, and fail to see why people would want it to be so. Sue seems to have fallen into the same trap, where her expectations of online behaviour are so low that she does not see that she is part of the problem by publicly accepting this.

No. I'd tell them to shut the fuck up and if I didn't like them then I'd walk down to HR and get their asses written up as psychos.

Having gone to college with a shoot 'em up killer and watched him do his thing on TV, I'd report this shit rather than let it slide.

The disturbing thing about Ironholds is not only the casual use of violent imagery, but that he emphasised that he had assaulted people in the past. Add that to his self-proclaimed list of behavioural deficiencies (i.e. I am diagnosed anti-social so I can go around being vile and it is your problem as I should not have to accept restrictions nor do I have to attempt to restrict myself) and you have a recipe for disaster.

That makes a lot of sense. Recall exists, yes, and I'm open to it, but what precisely it constitutes - that is, the precise community disquiet necessary, whether it's a reconfirmation or a voluntary desysop, etc - is something that, I will admit, I've been deficient in thinking on, hence the not getting around to writing recall criteria. I'm willing to respect mechanisms other than ArbCom, but the precise details are, again, something I was deficient in identifying. Ironholds (talk) 23:02, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Would you like to borrow mine? You should come up with something; it's not really kosher to say you're open to recall, but unfortunately you can't be recalled because you haven't got any criteria. That's functionally indistinguishable from "I'm not open to recall". --Floquenbeam (talk) 23:24, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

That seems reasonable enough, and in the future I'm happy to use it - but as it says, fiddling recall about one way or another in situ is somewhat problematic. Ironholds (talk) 23:26, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

It's not problematic at all, when there is otherwise no way whatsoever to recall you. --Floquenbeam (talk) 23:32, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

It seems clear we're not going to agree here. Once again, I consider the Committee pretty well suited to decide whether I'm competent enough to continue to hold the tools; for future instances, I will set up a recall mechanism, most probably based on yours, which seems eminently reasonable. On other points we seem to disagree, I'm afraid. Ironholds (talk) 23:37, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

But we don't disagree at all; I think my criteria are eminently reasonable; you think my criteria are eminently reasonable; the recaller and the recallee both agree on criteria, so there can't possibly be a problem in using them now. If your concern is that using my criteria would somehow be seen as "gaming", I assure you that saying you wish you could submit to a recall, but your hands are tied and you can't, will be seen as "gaming" by many, many more people. --Floquenbeam (talk) 23:57, 29 July 2013 (UTC)


It's absolutely clear that he'd never retaint he bit and he's DESPERATE to hang onto it.


Floquenbeam traps him admirably in that exchange, paraphrase: "Sure, I'd love to be available for recall." "Here, you can use my criteria." "Ah, those are great criteria, I'll develop my own personalized recall based on them at some future date." "Go ahead and use mine right now, you said they're great." At the end Ironholds flees: "I'm kind of busy right now, and Arbcom is actually a more efficient judge of my behavior than any recall process."

Bah! Can't find it. It was an IRC conversation where someone talked about wanting to punch someone and Ironholds said he'd done that. The other person misunderstood and Ironholds corrected saying that he had actually punched someone more than once at university. It's buried around here somewhere!

He wrote that he had assaulted two people in school, and that he was lucky that his records of assaults did not transfer to university.
He was bragging.

Well he certainly mentions here:
Quote:

[19:54] <Bullzeye> I almost punched somebody out in college class today.
[19:54] <DanielB> lol
[19:54] <Ironholds> I have done that twice.
[19:54] <Cream> lol
[19:54] <Ironholds> Punched out, not almost punched out.


[19:58] <Ironholds> I would have done something different, but I admire the effort.
[19:58] <Mifter> so what happened next :P
[19:58] * MindstormsKid would have cheered Bullzeye on
[19:58] <Ironholds> You should however have instead taken your pen, punched a hole in her windpipe and looked on as her attempts to wave for help got increasingly feeble.


So he boasts about physical violence at school, then immediately goes on about punching a hole in some woman's windpipe and looking on as her attempts to wave for help get increasingly feeble. According to Sue Gardner, this is typically the kind of discussion that goes on at the water cooler between professionals.

To be fair, this actually would be the case if your water cooler were filled with epinephrine, methamphetamine, steroids, and water-soluble testosterone. (You know, instead of just water.)

What do you suppose would be the legal advice to Sue Gardner regarding Oliver Keyes liability in the event of a sexual harassment lawsuit against the WMF?

Someone leaves on bad terms, decides to try to win the lottery, uses Oliver Keyes as the scratcher ticket to a lifetime of leisure...
Surely, this has never happened before in US history?!

I'm somewhat sceptical about this. It just doesn't match my impression of Oliver from meeting him face to face. Is the sourcing reliable? Could it refer to things when he was very young? (How many schoolkids have never been in a fight?)

Of course, he followed that up with "too much?" and a smiley face. It was clearly just being said for shock value. He seems to delight in saying offensive things now and again and I find it hard to hold that against him. Not that I think he didn't feel that way a bit, but that would be true for me and most, if not all, people as well in certain situations. Anyone here who has never expressed a desire for some dirty so-and-so to come to a fatal end in the near future, by your design or otherwise, is free to criticize him without being a hypocrite. Given that a member of this forum's staff once made a comment about wanting to slit some people's threats with box-cutters, I can hardly feel like it is appropriate for anyone here to react with indignation at a Wikimedia staffer making similarly violent remarks. The appropriate response in such situations is to express your shock or displeasure and wait for them to back off the comment. In this case, he backed off the comment without any real prompting.

I've heard as bad or worse on work sites, but always as joking around and never coming out of the mouths of the management.

I don't like posting about strangers' motives on the interwebs as a rule, but it looks to me like young Oliver is trying to act like a blue collar guy despite the fact that he's probably never done a hard day's work in his life. Tough guy with the smooth hands, and all that. :shrug:

You know, if you and Tarc are gonna make a list you should make it as complete as possible and add both your names, as well as Wikipediocracy to the list with a check next to each. I mean, unless you only use the term "apologist" when you want to malign someone for not agreeing with you and can not come up with a better line of attack.

Bloody hell I didn’t realise what a real doll was http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real_Doll . Not like Barbie and Ken at all. So these nasty poisonous little creeps are saying there should be a sex doll of me, ‘anatomically vacant like Ken’, or perhaps with the ‘shemale option’. And suggesting that punching the doll in the face would feel the same as punching me. Presumably because it would feel good to punch me in real life. Does anyone else here find this unbelievable and outrageous?

These are the people who banned me for supposed ‘harassment’ ?????

What's really striking is just how bad some of the people want to get rid of Kiefer.

You've got WormThatTurned turning in bullshit/false evidence after "recusing" himself from the case, getting called out on it, rightly, and then thrashing about.

ARBCOM seems to be looking the other way on this because, like Oliver Keyes,WTT is in a higher caste than the accused.
Nick and Floquenbeam trying desperately to inject some good sense into the proceedings are being ignored and shushed to the corner. "The big people are talking now" type of head patting nonsense.

Worse yet, you have WTT and his grooming by Demiwit overshadowing the entire process.
Anyone who's been under the wing of that dragon should be watched pretty closely.
That Demiwit is allowed to participate in a case with one of his former proteges is as striking as it is vile.

I was about to defend Worm That Turned (T-C-L) (Dave Craven) until I found the latest project he's developed with Demiurge1000 (T-C-L) and Dcoetzee (T-C-L), The Wikipedia Adventure, a new method of targetting little kids.

Degenerating from denial to enabling or participation is an unhappy fall.

Oh, Peter: Come on. Surely this is TAME by normal philosophy department watercooler-talk standards!

In seriousness, I find it totally believable having watched Wikipedia for quite some time now. The thing to focus the criticism on of course is not Oliver Keyes - but rather on his bosses, starting with Sue Gardner.

Ironholds making the occasional puerile remark to friends is no big deal, but this is like an employee standing in reception bad mouthing people knowing that everyone is listening.

I think the really disappointing thing is that Sue can't bring herself to say something along the lines of "You know what, he is out of line and I'd rather he didn't do it, and I am rather embarrassed to have fallen into the trap of going along with the crowd. It does reflect badly on the WMF and I will take steps to ensure that we do better in future." Then we could mutter a bit and this would fizzle out.

Hey Oliver Keyes,

I hear that you are a tough guy on the web and would like to punch people.
I am available for punching anytime you're in San Francisco.
Shall we set a date and time in Golden Gate park?

Your friend,
Vigilant

P.S. I'll give you the first punch. After that...game on.

"Misogyny" is the correct word to describe the advocacy of shooting named women and punching a hole in the windpipe of a woman to prolong her suffocation. It's also used by a leading newspaper: Murphy, Dan (1 August 2013).

Thanks for the kind words here. I really do believe casually expressed "jokes" about violence towards women is a form of misogyny.

Oh yeah: I'm a sort of reporter/columnist hybrid, so am allowed unusual leeway to express some opinion. It's different than the CSM's strictly hard news pages (which I also contribute to). Probably obvious, but in case it aint.

A friend of mine who joined the bar some years ago told me it was awful. It was always expressed in a jokey way and if she complained she was told she had left her sense of humour at home that morning, or something like that.

Please be generous or at a minimum neutral in terms of how you characterize the behaviour of others. "Misogyny," for example, is a very strong word and a serious accusation: it shouldn't be lightly made. Thanks. Sue Gardner (talk) 17:05, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

"Misogyny" is the correct word to describe the advocacy of shooting named women and punching a hole in the windpipe of a woman to prolong her suffocation. It's also used by a leading newspaper:

Murphy, Dan (1 August 2013). "In UK, rising chorus of outrage over online misogyny: Recent events in Britain draw more attention to endemic hostility towards women online". The Christian Science Monitor. Retrieved 1 August 2013.

I added this question:
Quote:
How do you describe the proposal to buy sex dolls in the likeness of Jimbo Wales and (by Ironholds) Peter Damien and to use the latter as a punching bag? (24 November 2011, employed as "Wikimedia Foundation community liaison")
Of course, Demiurge1000 (T-C-L) (aka Demiwit) censored everything. I restored it, per WP:TALK.

The CSM has long been recognized as rivalling The Washington Post and The New York Times in the quality of its coverage, particularly of international events.
Dan, you and the CSM deserve each other!
Congratulations!

Mr. Keyes set his site up to deny incoming links from here about a month ago. But you can still access it from the general intertube thingy.

Demiurge1000 said that Dan was "cute"
Quote:
Cute he is.

Persuasive or credible, he isn't.
I would guess he is writing ''there'' because, well, you know.

Dan, you have my deepest sympathies.

I woke up this morning, saw the latest rape and death threats against women hacks in the UK, and decided to write something. This is how it came out.
