I'm not going to be very active here anymore. I will stand by my history as an administrator here, despite the sturm and drang it has caused. Examine, if you will, the things I have been chastised for: blocking an editor with a long, long history of misrepresenting sources and misrepresenting the contents of his edits, ensuring that the WMF didn't capriciously ignore our policies when policy-compliant avenues were open, trying to get an IP editor that had had every one of his edits reverted by other editors to learn to use talk pages and discuss his edits, and, finally, blocking an editor that was intentionally restoring challenged material to articles prior to locating sources that supported it.

If those things are disruptive and fail to meet the expectations the Wikipedia community has of its administrators, that's more than a little sad.

And by "tireless", I mean "11,822-items-on-watchlist" tireless! Excellent work, even though that is fucking insane. - eo (talk) 14:10, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

For all your maintenance of "List of awards and nominations received by ______" pages by keeping out awards that are non-notable, unsourced, poorly sourced, or any combination of the three. I don't think you get enough credit for work like this. Snuggums (talk / edits) 03:20, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
