I'm more of a "what kind of incivil jerk would revert it and then not bother
to send anyone a message asking them politely to not blank pages, and upon
seeing they were a newbie give them the welcome message as well" kind of
person myself.

The first blanking I chalk up to someone realizing that the article was at
least half libelous bullshit.

The second blanking I chalk up to the reverting editor's not doing their
goddamn job.

The rest I chalk up to the downfall of AGF and civility as admins have
realized they're untouchable and never bother with them anymore.
