I added a question to the RFA.
I've answered. I hope you don't consider it soapboxing, but it
explains my feelings on the matter as best I can.
Your comment that it's "pleasing" that
it's turning into a debate on the
system rather than your nomination worries me a bit because it means your
nomination could be considered a violation of WP:POINT to get this
discussion going, but I'll assume good faith for now. If you think the
current RFA process doesn't work, I believe submitting a new process rather
than nominating yourself using the process you dislike is the way to go,
My intention in starting this RfA was to genuinely apply for
adminship, albeit in my own fashion, because I am not afraid of openly
stating what I believe in.
What I referred to as "pleasing" is that the RfA hasn't sunk like a
sack full of WP:SNOWBALLs, but rather has demonstrated that there
is a significant part of the group of RfA participants that share my
sentiments, and have taken this opportunity to express themselves. To
my eye, within the context of a (bona fide) RfA is the ideal place for
the RfA system to examine itself, and I don't appear to be the only
one who thinks so.
 I should apologize for my terrible habit of mixing metaphors.
