"self-righteous power tripping admins" isn't a personal attack?

I was making an observation about the community in general.

I said "incivility", not "invincibility". Thankfully we also provide  
Wiktionary so you can look up the meanings of those words.

Quite frankly, I would unblock you, but since you lack the common  
courtesy to ask nicely, I don't have to do a goddamned thing for you.  
I don't know how they run things at Ellsworth Air Force Base, but at  
Wikipedia, bullying and insulting people doesn't get positive results.
