I, Smee, award this barnstar to SheffieldSteel for enduring flack and uncivil behaviour while being a good editor and making valued contributions to the project. Thank you for your contributions to the project. Your work here is appreciated by the community. Yours, Smee 22:20, 20 June 2007 (UTC).
For your continuing, never-ending work and patience on the Hoggenkal Falls page...the falls that go on and on and on.... Renee (talk) 22:04, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
Congrats! Here's a t-shirt. BTW, sorry that I had to go neutral. I have to be cautious. But I think you'll do just great. Erik the Red 2 (AVE·CAESAR) 23:47, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
The Barnstar of Diligence
This barnstar is for every editor who assisted in accuracy, form, vandalism and POV fighting for Barack Obama for Election Day 2008, and who did it with civility, and just a dash of frustration and coriander. Moni3 (talk) 13:54, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
It is not censorship to exercise mature and responsible editorial judgment.
This is a collaborative project. If someone is entirely unable or unwilling to work with others, we don't keep them around just because the negative aspects aren't too bad. The fact that we put up with crap like this for so long is one the reasons we lose good contributors and have trouble keeping new ones; we're more willing to put up with trolls than we are to create a decent editing environment. Forget "collegial," at this point I'd settle for "not shit."
Aids is the opposite of anecdote: three million people died of it last year. Hundreds of thousands of lives, perhaps millions, have been lost because of a stupid idea, promoted by stupid people. To the best of my knowledge, not one has either apologised or clarified their stance. Just don’t let anyone tell you pseudoscience is harmless.
