2013-11-17 10:05:16 Ah, that's much better! For a moment I thought Brent had done that (don't know why) and wanted to compliment him on this, but my compliment goes to you. So: my compliment on this Andrea Thomas change!
Still this "In fact, she was so busy studying to get into med school, that she really didn't have time to campaign. Which, to be honest, shows she has excellent time-management skills and ability to prioritize her life." is not even close to being objective. We don't know anything about Andrea now, do we? But you didn't write this, so I am being rhetorical now. :-) Have a nice day! —ConstantiaOomen
2013-11-17 11:56:08 Ha! I love the "bountifulposterior" comment! I just have seen too many names selected to hurt other people or demean them, and so I'm always wary of them. If you're celebrating yourself, go for it! —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards, (814) 889-8845
2013-11-22 19:29:21 Yeah, it's only a cool-off ban. When people start chewing on each other too much and using the wiki as a weapon, there's a short duration cool off period. See the Wiki Chill Pill that I redirected both user profiles to. Part of it is just to give the community as a whole a break and an opportunity for quieter voices to be heard. We used to do far more of them, but it's been awhile since there has been this level of low level, not-explosive-but-still-destructive animosity. —JabberWokky
2013-11-22 19:30:44 Good idea. —phatazz
2013-11-22 19:43:57 I'm always really hesitant to ban anybody, but — as I said above — cool off bans used to be pretty common. Interestingly, it was often ASUCD related years ago. Perma-bans almost involve the community discussing and deciding by consensus. The couple exceptions have involved police and serious threats, or medical conditions and pleas to be banned because they couldn't help themselves: over the past nine years eventually there were a couple occasions when things got really bad. Overall, they are pretty rare. —JabberWokky
2013-12-01 16:48:18 Ever met Daubert in person? The best single word to describe him would be "exuberant". Two words? "Highly caffeinated", although I don't think it is from caffeine. He's probably not angry, although I can certainly see somebody taking it that way, especially if you don't have a lot of experience with his writing style. Tone is a hard thing to pick up in text. Of course, I could always be off, but knowing he talks like that about everything, at about 900 words per minute, helps. One of the great things about the wiki that separates it from being simply an internet website is that it's a real network of neighbors who can (and often do) meet face to face. —JabberWokky
