project's most destructive administrator, Kelly
Martin, has now stepped into the realm of voter
intimidation, by *blocking* [[User:Grue]] for a support
vote on [[User:Djr xi]]'s Request for Adminship. The
excuse was "personal attacks", even though the vote in
question did not mention anyone by name. This is a
blatant attempt to intimidate voters on this request
Bullshit. He wasn't blocked for "a support vote" at all, and
incredibly stupid thing to say. For shame.
I personally don't believe the block was warranted (there's a
AN/I about it, I'm sure you haven't forgotten how to find it), and I'm
pleased to see it was overturned almost immediately. However, Grue's
comment was unfair and incivil and rather insulting, and Kelly's block
was made in good faith.

I'm more disgusted by all of this than I can
The other day you were speechless with rage; now you're unable to
enunciate your true level of disgust. I think us rogue admins
take up a collection to buy you a thesaurus and dictionary; it may
you on such difficult issues as how to express yourself in print.
This has to be the single most civil and productive message I have
ever read on any listserv. Mark, I must applaud you for being the
bigger man and addressing these concerns calmly instead of lashing
out at the person.
