......our old buddy-pal-buddy MONGO is angling for adminship again! Wheeeee!

Just for the giggles: don't forget attempt #1 (one of the most heavily sockpuppeted, manipulated and canvassed RFAs in history) and #2, ditto despite being a failure.

Nothing like seeing someone forcibly stripped of the tools by ArbCom asking to have them reinstated. Is this guy a masochist or what?

I always get a good chuckle out of the folks who Support adminship of people like MONGO by saying they "will be under scrutiny by a lot of people" and "they are open for recall". I'm pretty sure there has been a SINGLE successful admin recall in the history of Wikipedia (by successful, I mean one that wasn't forcibly closed and archived as "wrong forum" or for some other bogus reason). And scrutiny by whom? The other admins" Those guys follow a "circle the wagons" custom that puts many corrupt police departments to shame!

Yes, adding MONGO to the ranks would substantially lower the overall quality of admins at en.Wikipedia.

I'm going to register my other sock and start giving out barnfarts to all those opposing his rise through the skank.:blink:

Per ArbCom authoritah, Malleus is not permitted to comment in RfAs other than to vote.

So naturally, there's a Wikipedian talking about him in the third person in the RfA just to poke at him.

Nice "solution" there, ArbCom.

That's one of my favorite things about en.Wikipedia, there is always a fly ready to vomit on your food. There is always an admin ready to make the situation worse. There's always an arBer ready to create an undoable fuckfest that doesn't solve anything--besides focus the fly eyes on the target.

I, too, want a bullseye the size of the room. And a prize if I hit it. I want to be Miss America!

There appears to be a second version of that article:
https://encyclopediadramatica.se/MONGO/ ... r_Evidence

which includes:

Ah, piss, that will teach me to avert my eyes for the twelve minutes or whatever it took this to snow shut... Now I lost my chance to weigh in at the YOU HAVE GOT TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME, NEVER, EVER, EVER section...

MONGO is claiming a few people urged him to run, but that he knew it would be a disaster.

K-Wolf is a good dude, I respect him a lot. We actually met fighting over content in an article on a left wing organization but wound up becoming, I think, quite good friends once we figured out that neither of us was out to either whitewash (him) or slander (me) the organization in question. NPOV does work.

Anyway, MONGO was just biting my head off about something or other, probably Gibraltar/WMUK related, and I've got him on the short list of potential administrators for that day WHEN PIGS FLY.
