Hello, I am a British Wikipedian who has been here for ages. Who'd have thought I'd never find anything better to do?

I wrote this and that, though I never edit articles associated with my real work. I occasionally enjoy hustling persistent vandals and tedious, disruptive types into Wikiblock-oblivion. These days I try to restrict myself to music and non-league football articles.

My interest in broader editing has finally waned somewhat after seeing that a) the level of abuse you can get away with depends almost entirely on how many friends you have; b) following a consensus is apparently optional, depending on how many admins feel like enforcing it; c) some people who lose an argument on their talk pages then like to doctor them to make it look like they taught you a lesson, and d) cleaning up after well-meaning idiots is far more time-consuming than it should be.

I actually laughed out loud at when reading the last sentence of this. I only allow personal attacks on my talkpage if the user in question actually has a valid point to make; that was a nice response. The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 04:17, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

For being my advocate against people bullying me and one of the editors on this wiki that is not corrupt, therefore adding "special flavor" to the community as the award requires. Hghyux (talk to me)(talk to others) 01:29, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Your continuous updates of infoboxes on Formula 1 articles is so very much appreciated. In recognition of your excellent work, I award you this Special Barnstar. Well done, and keep up the good work! :-) Lradrama 08:41, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

You just beat me to correcting Kimi Raikkonen's results table! This typifies the effort you put in after each Grand Prix to ensure all of the articles are correct, and I think it deserves this barnstar. Enjoy! :) --Diniz (talk) 13:43, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

Though I was initially annoyed that you reverted some of my edits (lol), I realise that your work to F1 articles is incredible. You always seem to find little grammar errors which I don't see at first, remarkable really. Take this, I hope you'll keep contributing for a long time to come yet.

I hereby award myself this barnstar for my tireless efforts blah blah. Actually, it's to say to anyone that if they see a motorsport article in danger of deletion, let me know and I'll do whatever I can to save it. Unless it's crap, in which case I won't bother :D Bretonbanquet (talk) 14:51, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
