Thanks again

I appreciate you closing Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#User:Coffee. The discussion had really deteriorated and became a forum for venting anger and dismay. No thoughtful decisions are made when emotions are ruling people's actions and thoughtful action is especially required on an WP noticeboard. Liz Read! Talk! 19:58, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

  • But we don't normally close discussions we have been involved in. Do you realise you made 23 edits to that discussion, then closed it with your 24th? Next time it would be better to let someone else who had not taken part in the discussion close. --John (talk) 20:25, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
    • I had no stake in the outcome, and the discussion was not about me. My comments were for the purpose of moderation, not to advocate any particular position. This particular discussion was causing a real harm that you probably don't understand, and I decided that it was best to stop it. Rules are guidance, not a straightjacket.

      • Oh, I get that, which is why I let your close stand, even though it was improper. As regards the real harm which I "probably don't understand", feel free to explain it to me. --John (talk) 22:23, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
        • FWIW, I agree with the close. I am very sad that Coffee seems to have left us, as sad as I am over Eric and Giano's blocks. Just because I'm "for" Eric (whatever that means--I'm part of his posse, as I've seen others say often enough) doesn't mean I'm "against" Coffee. Too many in that discussion can't seem to separate the person from the one decision. As I've said before, in this place or that, I considered Eric's remark ill-advised, even in poor taste, but few people here get dealt the crap that he gets on a regular basis (with the exception of Jimbo, I suppose, which is kind of funny). Jehochman, as far as I'm concerned you have some gravitas here, and for you to unblock Eric would be a great signal. What that's supposed to signal I'm not sure, except the fact that blocks aren't the right solution for every problem. Thanks, Drmies (talk) 22:48, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
  • That was bad. Thanks for stepping up Jon. Thumbs up Swarm X 19:21, 2 March 2015 (UTC)


Is there anything I can do about this? Just one example of the same thing. Thanks, EChastain (talk) 17:03, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Ignore it. I am waiting for the evidence against Lightbreather to reach critical mass. Hopefully she will stop misusing Wikipedia as a battlefield before that happens. Jehochman Talk 19:22, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
No comment. Thanks for letting me know that I was being discussed. Lightbreather (talk) 19:47, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
