Sorry, I might have missed it... but what constructive criticism was there?
I saw mostly unhelpful comments like "Never" "totally unsuitable" "don't
trust him as an admin" blah blah etc etc. There was barely anything helpful.
I also think running 3 times shows I am pretty serious, don't you think? I
had promised to myself to never run again after last July, and broke that
promise by running again, with the hope the community would be able to be
more forgiving and assume more good faith, and not hold grudges. Some people
oppose because of petty reasons, and basically attacked me in doing so - I'm
hurt the community thinks I'm some sort of unstable individual who would
make a rubbish bureaucrat. I'm a bcrat on Meta, probably the most active.
Heck, even Lar supported me, and we are probably two of the most different
users there are, and we've had lots of fights. But since we work on Meta as
bcrats, he probably knows me better than most. Anyway, there's some much
better candidates up, and I'm glad *I* was the push that got them running.
