Quote of the week

FYI, it is offical now. It is illegal to ask "are you drunk?", and it is legal to say "you are dishonest". But I must warn you that I did not try this myself. It might take special privileges to do so. [1] - DePiep

Quote of the last week

I raised my point of personal attacks (bad faith accusations) at WP:ANI [2]. I asked to have the editor remove these accusations and change behaviour. In the outcome, the admins did not see any trespassing and did not take any action into removing them, and no correctional words were addressed to the editor. So wordings like "Falsehood" (bold in originals, 2), "Lie" (bold in originals, 3), "dishonest", "relentless personal attacks from these two editors" stay part of this discussion.

Now I am supposed to 'discuss' these personal attacks (instead of discussing arguments). I will not do that. Personal attacks do not belong in a discussion in the first place, I am not even supposed to take the bait, and I do not see how or why I am supposed to prove that I am not "dishonest". If there are arguments hidden in these accusations, the posting editor (not someone else) could and should have unwrapped them as argument for discussion.

Another consequence from ANI is that the personal attacks are available at closing time, to be used by the closing admin. As the admins did not see or act upon these personal attacks, I do not have confidence that a closing admin will throw out these accusations before concluding. As indeed they are explicitly accepted by the admins, they will be (must be) used and weighed.

It is therefor that I withdraw this review request. The procedural close will imply a null outcome then. I am disappointed that wikipedia, admins especially, were unable to keep personal attacks out of a discussion and even allowing them into a closure. -DePiep (talk) 09:58, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
