My problem here is that once an admin has been called
firefight, one side or the other will invariably see them as partisan
and I am not at all certain that I know when to
stop providing administrative support against vandals by request of
trusted editors in contentious articles: at what point am I "involved"
and needing to step back?
My view: with 800 admins, you should be able to call in another one, when
things get rough. If there are two of you, there is less need to worry
about stepping back; just share the load.
