Good news for all. I may consider you to be an ass and treat your accordingly, but after many years of editing here, I have come to realize that my memory is so short that with very rare exception, I simply don't remember (or care) who is who from one week to the next.

It seems to me that splitting editing and admin duties make sense. That is, don't exercise admin rights over articles one is editing, and don't make content edits to articles on which one is taking administrative action. It seems that following this simple rule would keep admins out of most sorts of trouble.

- "Chicolini may look like an idiot, and act like an idiot, but don't let that fool you - he really is an idiot!" ~ Rufus T. Firefly, Duck Soup
These three may be difficult to differentiate. Policy dictates we must assume good faith. Therefore, when communicating with the editor of inexplicable content, assume he or she is an idiot - and hope they do the same.

Hypothesis: "Ugly is POV"
- Truth is NPOV
- The truth can be ugly
Conclusion: Ugly satisfies NPOV when it is true.
