I'm not here in any meaningful sense for the forseeable future. I may check in occasionally, but you shouldn't count on that for anything remotely time-sensitive.
Folly, thou conquerest, and I must yield!

Against stupidity the very gods
Themselves contend in vain.

--Friedrich Schiller

To answer your question...[edit]

That is a very Wikipedianesque thread. --Floquenbeam (talk) 20:01, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
Free fun fact at no additional charge: before I decided to reword that comment slightly, I did actual research and discovered that the adverbial form of "silly" is "sillily". Spell checker doesn't like it, tho. --Floquenbeam (talk) 20:04, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
Ha! Mine underlined it, too. You weren't kidding, either, it's got everything from petty pedantry to bureaucratic nonsense and there are plenty of self-important editors to get bent out of shape about something that happened in it. It's classic Wikipedia. ᛗᛁᛟᛚᚾᛁᚱPants Tell me all about it. 20:26, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
Now I am wondering if I should have posted there at all ... JoJo Eumerus mobile (talk) 21:23, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
I almost always feel that way after posting at ANI... --Floquenbeam (talk) 21:53, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

I still think it was a valid question to ask. Determining consensus on Wikipedia is one of those things that seems to make nobody happy, and "within admin discretion" is such a wide, all encompassing zone. Mr Ernie (talk) 19:22, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
