I don't know who this was directed at, but
it's exactly the attitude
that's causing a problem.
Really? Most historical problems with "wheel wars" have been due to
the problem that it is tricky to block an admin who doesn't want to be
I don't know what that means. The wheel war problem is caused by
people taking it upon themselves to undo other people's admin actions,
simply because they disagree with them. As Kate said, it often boils
down to an ego problem, the presumption of knowing better.
Respecting someone else's judgment is not the
same as them "owning"
the block or >protection or edit.
Functionaly the difference is?
You can strongly disagree with an admin action, but at the same time
realize that perhaps the original admin knows more about the situation
than you do; or perhaps knows just as much but has better judgment in
this case; or perhaps neither of these, and you'll just have to agree
to differ. Just as we can't always have our own way when editing, we
also can't always have our own way when adminning.
