[WikiEN-l] Most immature war ever? Are we embarrassed yet?

Let me get this straight:

   1. A few editors suggest we should start blocking people on sight for
   their sexual orientation
   2. One editor blocks a newbie who claimed to be a pedophile, alongside
   claims to being a mutant, a potential believer of the flying spaghetti
   monster, approved of by mr rubber ducky, and needing more cowbells
   3. This user was unblocked
   4. Jimbo re-blocks the user for voting Keep on a TfD (for a week!),
   thus starting a wheel war
   5. Chaos ensues
   6. Jimbo re-blocks and de-syspos a half-dozen editors for continuing
   the above wheel war.

Am I right to be embarrassed for Wikipedia? Have I missed something or did a
bunch of clowns start running the place?

Do correct me if I've made a mistake.
