An open letter to Jimmy Wales, Arbcom and the broader community
I'm sure you've heard this before, but your website known as wikipedia has a SERIOUS problem with the volunteer administration.
The community can elect any volunteer into the "Administrator" status, however, even when there is alarmingly strong support for it, the same community cannot reverse their decision to elect the same volunteer to the same status no matter how grossly they abuse their power. This needs to change.
I, Myself, have not been sitting idle and complaining, I have been trying to do something about it by filing requests to the only place that is capable of removing administrator status - The Arbitration Committee. However, the corrupt admins who are obviously against the community being able to take away the very status they are able to give are massing against me and have taken my metaphorical head as I type this. I know that most likely you will never read this and I'm just venting into the void of cyberspace - Even if I make this an open letter and post it everywhere I can find.
However, I also have a solution to this problem. Make a community desysop process - a means by which the currently impotent community has a means to bring abusive admins to account without needing to get arbcom involved or cop the heat from other abusive admins, as I have done.
Sure, it might take years, but the current direction is clearly unsustainable - too many cooks spoil the broth.
Thank for reading this, even if your only response is [REDACTED - UNLIKE ABUSIVE ADMINS, I DO MY BEST TO STAY CIVIL].
