SV has been the target of egregious harassment from
WR, so it's not a
surprise, but we should have reined her in.
That's easy to say now, but the problem is not advocacy for WR links -
the problem is that no-one is in fact reining in those admins going
stupidly overboard in advocating full site bans. The problematic
behaviour keeps happening over and over again, and when called on it
we see (as we have on this list) that they become abusive to anyone
questioning their behaviour, let alone expecting them to acknowledge
that it could conceivably be problematic in any way whatsoever.
They are arguably being more disruptive and damaging to the community
than the damage from the attack site links itself is.
