[unfortunately, that URL is long enough that it got wrapped and needs 
to be put back together]

Background:  Somebody started a RFC on User:MONGO to complain about 
his uncivil behavior, including an edit summary that insulted an 
entire country by saying that anybody posting from there was "anti-
American".  This resulted in MONGO and a few of his good buddies 
getting a whole lot of laughs about how another nutcase was attacking 
MONGO again, and how they were probably a sockpuppet of a banned 
troll or something, and can't we find some excuse to ban him too?  At 
one point, a special section was created in the RFC page for 
"vexatious litigation against MONGO", though this was soon reverted.  
In the end, the RFC was deleted as "frivolous", although it had 
received the required two endorsements.  Once again, we see the 
clique protecting its own, and making personal attacks with impunity 
when they're against people who dare to criticize a clique member.

Some comments from that thread:

"Yet another frivolous RfC on MONGO: Wikipedia:Requests for 
comment/MONGO 3, this time by an obvious sockpuppet." -- Bishonen

"Which ED sock is it this week, one wonders?" -- Corvus cornix

"Another brand new account that finds its way to ANI and jumps 
straight in to a dispute about MONGO. Yawn!" -- ElinorD

So, who is it that said that we're not a "drama site"?
