The person who did that got upset because he was
outed, and he reacted
badly, which he later admitted. It was a very human response, and it's
unfair to keep on using it as a weapon.
What we are talking about is not at all
simple. It takes place in a
context of considerable conflict of interest and in the realities of
interpersonal and group dynamics that no amount of good faith can
cover. You and MONGO and Jayjg spend a lot of time attacking WR, to
the point where it seems to me that you don't care about the side
effects of your campaign against them.
Hardly. I generally ignore WR, and have paid little attention to it
for many months now. It happens to come up in discussions here, but
keep in mind, the *purpose* of WR is to be a place where
ex-Wikipedians can harass Wikipedians. On the other hand, the purpose
of Wikipedia is not to make life difficult for WR denizens, nor is
that the reason for wikien-l. WR members are obsessed with Wikipedia
and their particular objects of hate in Wikipedia, so they imagine the
reverse is true; rest assured, it is not.
