Arbitration enforcement action appeal by Lexers615

SNOW close. The action appealed is not an arbitration enforcement action. GoldenRing (talk) 06:21, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
The following discussion has been closed. Please do not modify it.

Procedural notes: The rules governing arbitration enforcement appeals are found here. According to the procedures, a "clear, substantial, and active consensus of uninvolved editors" is required to overturn an arbitration enforcement action.

To help determine any such consensus, involved editors may make brief statements in separate sections but should not edit the section for discussion among uninvolved editors. Editors are normally considered involved if they are in a current dispute with the sanctioning or sanctioned editor, or have taken part in disputes (if any) related to the contested enforcement action. Administrators having taken administrative actions are not normally considered involved for this reason alone (see WP:UNINVOLVED).

Statement by Lexers615

Basically, it's WP:DOUBLESTANDARD at its best... On one end, you have an "established editor" who's profile is nothing but a flamebait WP:GAME], and then you have his buddies who ganged up to defend him, in an increasingly annoying WP:GAME, and I wasn't aware at that point that WP:ANIISLOUSY. I still disagree that my entry was a mere dictionary entry, but that's not my appeal here. The problem is that the administrator who arbitrarily decided to "show off", worded his post in an unequivocal way reflecting his bias, gaming further on, and exacerbating an already annoying situation.

Given the very arbitrary nature of the powers of editors with powers and administrators, this macho show of force arguably has the same future consequences as a short ban.

And, this said, I'd like to remind that said admin said that calling someone "self centered and arrogant" is against the rules, but referred to me as "thin skinned", and that the editor who caused the incident caricaturizes anyone disagreeing with him on his profile page using trash language. In such circumstances, I believe civil language being unnecessary and impedimenting, and trash talk has the added advantage of candid honesty, without any possibility to WP:GAME, while involved people did game on, using apparent civil language for public shaming. This is excruciating even more, as one of the "editor with powers" refused to check the flaimbaiting profile and, cherry on top, did make allegations that I plagiarized the Merriam-Webster relevant definition, while I did quote it, and it was only use as part of a much larger definition. So that guy basically insulted me three times in a few sentences, and his baseless accusations are proven rubbish when we compare my post vs Webster's entry and we just click on the other guy profile. And feel free to compare my original post with some existing articles... vs

Basically, A Train's action was nothing but ganging along his buddies.

Also, with what I've read tonight, and what I experienced yesterday, given the ANI page has severe known unaddressed ongoing issues regarding bad faith and ganging up, I believe its very existence should be reconsidered. WP:ANIISLOUSY
