Hey just kinda something I wanna point out[edit]

I don't what the fuck this person is on about but these veiled doxing threats are kinda concerning. I'm not really entirely concerned because there are few of the old guard that know me pretty well, have met me in RL and I talk to regularly but this new guy/gal who has taken exception to my vicious language has me a little bewildered. Yes, I fucking swear, yes I can be a brusque, even lashing out but that is my style and one that has worn me well over the years despite my obvious insulting tone. I get it, it's not for everyone but Jesus Fuck - I don't understand why Anna has gone completely fucking overboard on this issue. I re-joined RW for shits and giggles because I have enjoyed it in the past (10 years a member man - I should get a medal...or my fucking head checked) and I have a bit of time on my hands (girlfriend away, daughter angry at her dad for driving too fast, vast holiday approaching and new business started) so thought I would dip my toes into the fetid waters of RW. I'd never fucking out anyone here and I expect no one else to either so can Anna kinda pull her fucking head in or do we condone this sort of thing now? All the best with love and kisses. Ace hugs etc. xxx...mahalo. Acei9 10:36, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

'One cannot see the woods (of what you wish to say) for the (swearword) trees' - and most other people here are more restrained.
I am not making threats - veiled or otherwise: go read [1], so 'go curate yourself'.
Consider points 17 and 32 of [2] applies.
RW needs my 'collection of miscellaneous information and things found - so humour me. Anna Livia (talk) 10:59, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
OK this is getting fucking weird now. Acei9 11:02, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
Weirding opponents out can be a successful strategy. Anna Livia (talk) 11:33, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
not with me. Acei9 11:37, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
But - you responded. Anna Livia (talk) 12:09, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

@Ace McWicked I haven't noticed this discussion. You should try to ping me other other mods or message in their talk pages with a link to this page so you can receive an answer sooner. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 02:04, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

Do the mods actually exist abymore[edit]

? Acei9 01:34, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

Yes, they do. Spud (talk) 01:45, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
were my comments above not worthy of response? Acei9 01:52, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
I'm not a mod, but given that she appears to be persistently harassing you and making veiled threats, I've temporarily removed her sysop & autopatrolled status so sysops are sure not to miss anything. A mod's judgment on the matter would be appropriate. Spriggina (tal) (framlög) @ 01:53, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
Yeah a mod should make some kind of judgment here or at least clarify the rules on ‘investigating’ other users (whatever Anna means by that). Acei9 01:55, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
I'm a mod. I think Anna Livia went too far in the matter, where it falls under harassment (by continuing a discussion that's explicitly unwanted) and dragging drama (by continuing unwanted "arguments" on GrammarCommie's and my talk page). Ace, you should try next time to more clearly show the problem, such as giving me the link to this page or pinging me or other mods, which is why you didn't get a quick response. Any questions? --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 02:02, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
Nope know questions. It’s been a few years since I was properly active here so was wondering how it worked with Anna’s comments under the new regime here. I wouldn’t have stuck around if it was going thing these days. Acei9 02:08, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
Good. If the harassment and drama-dragging continues even after the ban and removal of those statuses, more action will be taken (possible ban or vandal bin), or other sysops have my permission to do that bidding if they beat me to it. I will listen to Anna Livia's complaints, but the reasons are spelled right out and won't change the course of action unless behavior is improved. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 02:15, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
I'm not sure what the procedure is for these things -- are all people who have sysop removed meant to be put into sysoprevoke? I was hoping for it to just be a temporary removal of privileges, but I'm not sure how that works. Spriggina (tal) (framlög) @ 03:02, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
I think sysoprevoke is to prevent this user from getting sysop rights or exerting sysop privileges? I'm not sure either. I do believe this is temporary removal of privileges until behavior is improved though. I need to check if sysoprevoke is a status only mods can impose. Edit: it is. I'm considering sysoprevoke until behavior is improved, though so far, temporary de-sysop seems to work. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 22:10, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

KD1 v. WWW post mortem[edit]

I don't know if Damian did dox WWW, but if he did, perhaps you should consider additional actions to be taken. RoninMacbeth (talk) 02:15, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

I don't know either, didn't listen that much to all that screaming and yelling. I was out when it happened and the chicken coop was archived before I could get a say and get invested in this. I think What a Wonderful World requested for a revdelete and KingDamian1 complied, so there's that. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 03:40, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
