[WikiEN-l] More AfD toxicity

This morning I began the process of writing [[cart00ney]] (with two
zeros).  I saved my work when I got up to refill my coffee, and when I
returned, [[User:Savidan]] had nominated my incomplete stub for deletion
with the cryptic reason "apparent nn selfref neologism."  The article
had existed for a grand total of nine (9) minutes.  Savidan made no
attempt to contact me, and made no effort to discuss the obviously
in-progress article on its talk page.

Perhaps the full article would still be an "apparent nn selfref
neologism," whatever that is.  Perhaps the full article would deserve to
be obliterated with all the contempt that the AfD regulars regularly
heap on articles they don't understand or simply dislike.  Perhaps it
would belong in Wikipedia.  You'll never know now.  Nine (9) minutes
after it was begun, Savidan eagerly began the process of destroying it
before its creation had completed.

I don't really think we needed further demonstrations of the
disgustingly toxic assumptions of bad faith that are inextricably
integral to the entire AfD process, but I will take this opportunity to
thank Savidan for yet another demonstration of how despicable it is.
