Who am I?
I'm me. I'm studying at Rochester Institute of Technology, where I am mostly involved with Computer Science and Internet Law, and take classes in the humanities when I can find time. I've had an account here for a while, but I didn't really get interested in doing anything with it until one spring break in 2008 where I installed Twinkle and basically spent the whole week reverting vandalism.
Primarily, I spend most of my time here on Wikipedia browsing WP:AfD in an effort to keep useful, notable and verifiable material here on Wikipedia. I'm an inclusionist, yes. In my opinion, it is far too easy to get material removed from Wikipedia. For this reason, I seldom vote in favor of the deletion of an article, because that is what happens by default in my experience. During the times when there isn't anything that needs saving in the AfDs, I spend my time as an RC patroller or improving articles that were nominated for deletion (which, also in my experience, are articles that just require improvement; despite the fact that AfD is not for forced cleanup, that it sadly its primary use).
Articles I've rescued from deletion via HEY.
At the moment, I'm running a closed proxy for Wikipedians who value their privacy and for Wikipedians who are behind the great firewall of China. At the moment, it seems to be the only one, as the previous maintainer left the project on what seems to be an indefinite vacation.
If you are interested in using the proxy, or somehow have concerns, list them on my talk page or email me via Wikipedia.
