Death Phoenix stated for the record:
Since Danny didn't apply the WP:OFFICE tag,
does that warrant an immediate
desysoping and indefinite ban? I've seen such measures only after an
arbitration case. Nowhere did Danny say he was applying WP:OFFICE. If Erik
got into a wheel war, fine. I've seen wheel-warring admins get desysoped (or
cautioned, or whatever), but only after an arbitration case was held against
them. An indef ban should certainly only come after an arbitration case.
Minor correction: even the ArbComm cannot impose an indefinite ban.
Don't let the issue here get buried under discussion of OFFICE. The
issue is that Danny, while apparently acting as a common or garden
variety admin, -- and not just without discussion, but rather while
/actively refusing to discuss/ -- imposed a lifetime ban from Wikipedia.
While /actively refusing to discuss/.
Precisely. Trying to defend Danny's desysopping and ban by crying
wheel-war is just wikilawyering in my opinion.
