Would you please mind revdeleting this too? [[1]]. Hell in a Bucket (talk) 15:29, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

Not sure if I should respond to what was said at ANI, but it is exactly an example of what I said. They have decided an RS policy all of their own and they will enforce it (this I must say is AGF).Slatersteven (talk) 15:28, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

  • As I said, it would be a very poor idea if they continued to try and enforce it. Black Kite (talk) 15:29, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
This really is a bit sad. Apart form this one issue (over tabloids) they do not seem to be a problem editor (well as far as I can tell) it it was such a bizarre issue to throw yourself onto a sword over. I really am flabbergasted by this, I will admit that (as I said at the ANI) I did expect it to end up here, but not this quickly.Slatersteven (talk) 15:42, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
I agree. However, the combination of refusal to accept consensus and a number of personal attacks leads us to where we are. Black Kite (talk) 15:49, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
I keep on writing a message to their talk pager asking them think carefully about what they do next (I think I know, but must AGF). But then not posting it as I just know it will arouse their anger. I have just this kind of thing too many times to not think they are going to do something rash.Slatersteven (talk) 16:07, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Not quite what I wanted to say, but not far short.Slatersteven (talk) 16:12, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Could someone please take a look at MoD's user talk? See this. An IP has just accused MoD of socking in their edit summary while restoring the Block Notice. My understanding is that according to WP:DRC and WP:REMOVED this restoration seems to be against procedure/guidelines... Thanks Shearonink (talk) 01:53, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

As far as I know that is true. Seems to me policy says they are allowed to remove even active block notices. But I suspect this was a sock having a dig.Slatersteven (talk) 08:18, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Incorrect statement on ANI[edit]

In this statement you made upon closing the matter, you wrote that I would support an indefinite block in a way that suggests that I jumped in and said "Indef at once!!!". This is incorrect; I called for a further investigation into all these matters but I rejected the idea of an infinite block(with one exception), and only contemplated a topic ban if the user would decline to correct a problem with their paid editing behaviour(and according to the evidence there was some editing behaviour that was not good(promotional)).Lurking shadow (talk) 09:12, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
