Speedy deletion declined: Geroge Davis is innocent[edit]

Hello Reyk. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Geroge Davis is innocent, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: R3: R3 only applied to recently created redirects, WP:RFD should be used otherwise. Thank you. ~ Amory (utc) 14:46, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

continued conversation on my talk page; no need to keep pestering Hijiri88 with it.[edit]

Understood, @Ivanvector:. I will not make another similar comment. However, in turn, I expect that the next time those on the other side of the table start calling people vain, slimy, and paranoid, among other slurs, that you threaten them with blocks as well. I don't recall that you and I have had much to do with one another before so I'll do you the courtesy of being blunt: first, I am profoundly weary of the civility policy being selectively enforced and second, I respond a lot better to persuasion than to intimidation. Reyk YO! 21:24, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

I, too, am exasperated by uneven enforcement of the civility policy: on one hand it's difficult for users to comply with a policy which is so inconsistently applied, but at the same time it's difficult to enforce anything evenly when so many editors get away with clear violations, and when one user's incivility is so regularly accepted as a defense for another user's personal attacks. I try to call out personal attacks when I see them because I think it's important that users see that there are admins willing to enforce that policy, otherwise it's meaningless. I normally do so through the use of notes like the one you read (because I believe in WP:DTTR) but I accept your criticism that those can come across as intimidation, and I appreciate it. For what it's worth I actually rarely block anyone for personal attacks, thinking that warnings seem to work, but if that's because editors feel intimidated then I'm not accomplishing what I intend, and so I have to think about that. You're right that you and I have rarely crossed paths and so there's little reason for me to believe that you would have a problem with calling people names, and I ought to have reminded you in a gentler fashion, or perhaps I should not be butting in on Hijiri's talk page in the first place. I guess I really don't have anything to offer here, but thank you for the honest feedback. Ivanvector (Talk/Edits) 01:07, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
