Today's Thought - From the Devil's Dictionary:ECCENTRICITY, n. A method of distinction so cheap that fools employ it to accentuate their incapacity.
Hello, I'm Amused Repose.
I used to be a Wikipedia editor. I don't choose to use that name any more -- not because of any drama, but because I'm pretty tired of everything that happens at Wiki aside from tinkering with the articles I like.
I've been a Wikipedian since 2007 (on this and another account). Thanks to unified login, I'm also User:AmusedRepose on all other public Wikimedia Foundation projects, including Wikimedia Commons and Meta Wiki.

I can be contacted

I believe very strongly that communication and talking through problems can always result in a better outcome than the braindead concepts of IAR and being stupidly bold. If I've done something that seems to violate policy, please contact me.

My previous identity can be confirmed by:

I firmly believe that no matter why people leave a project, they should be able to come back as long as they make good faith, positive, and helpful contributions in alignment with policy. I came back to try to continue to improve what I've worked on, so who I used to be should only be important if I cause problems.
