Proposal to close MedCab[edit]

See discussion at Wikipedia_talk:Mediation_Committee#Close_MedCab. Please post any comments there, not here, to keep the discussion co-located. --Noleander (talk) 00:09, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

There Is No Cabal (TINC)[edit]

For those who might suspect that there is a Cabal (TINC):

There Is No Cabal. We talked about this at last week's Super Secret Cabal Meeting, and every cabal member there agreed that There Is No Cabal. There was a write-up about it in last month's issue of Cabalist: The Official Cabal Newsletter titled Cabal Board of Directors agrees: There Is No Cabal. The sign on Cabal Towers in downtown Manhattan says "There Is No Cabal". What more proof do you need?

See [ http://catb.org/jargon/html/B/backbone-cabal.html ] and [ http://catb.org/jargon/html/N/NANA.html ] for more information. --Guy Macon (talk) 12:38, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

So what you're not saying is that there isn't definitely not a cabal that doesn't not not exist? Xavexgoem (tinc) 07:53, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
You know what I always say; follow the sources. here is a reliable source that should clear everything up. And if it doesn't, then this one will. --Guy Macon (talk) 08:21, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
My God! This changes everything nothing! Xavexgoem (talk) 08:37, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
No need to call me your God. "Guy" will do. :) --Guy Macon (talk) 00:14, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
Obviously this is either true or not. Inter\Echo 08:46, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
Or both. Or Neither. It's a Zen Thing. --Guy Macon (talk) 17:12, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

Not an update: Since there is no cabal, the annual Bilderberg cocktail party and meet 'n greet did not successfully take place on June 1 (and Jimmy does not say "Hi!" to those who could not not attend, you didn't miss a great time). Please remember that the meetings for year 8746 will not take place as planned on the solstices and equinoxes at, respectively, Ayers Rock, Glastonbury Tor, Easter Island, and Fajada Butte and that the Glastonbury meeting will not, as usual, require full robes and regalia and that loaner robes (Iggy, this means you) will not be available. The private jets will not pick you up at the regular places and times. Best regards and obeisances, TransporterMan (TALK) 18:10, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

As the nonexistent slumber party for people (all of whom are not part of any kind of tomfoolery) did not have an unexpectedly large number of attendees, I will not be assisting in the arrangement of the pancake breakfast for benefit of only no one, no one at all. I have not suggested any locations that no one else could think of such as the Red Pyramid or somesuch. There is no way to RSVP to this event as it does not exist- to reiterate a common theme here- there is totally no cabal of any kind. -Coriander (talk) 04:20, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

Complaint[edit]

But on a serious note, is there really no one who can mediate when a user has been pre-emptively "straw-man"ed so many times to Admins that they keep closing without resolution his attempts to find mediation that no one is prepared to look at his side of the story? :( Kaz 19:13, 14 September 2012 (UTC)

Kaz, this project is inactive so you are wasting your time even more here than in the half dozen other discussions you have opened about this. Beeblebrox (talk) 03:10, 15 September 2012 (UTC)
The interesting thing is that, in general, Wikipedia administrators are very much on the lookout for any admins who violate our policies. Nobody wants that. If Kaz had actual evidence, he could take it to WP:ANI and the problem would be dealt with. Otherwise, this is almost certainly another case of "Whenever someone cries out 'admin abuse!,' it is usually the admin who is being abused." So can we get back to our silly Cabal (TINC) jokes, please? --Guy Macon (talk) 09:26, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

There definitely is no cabal[edit]

I'd just like to point out that Wikipedia:Mediation Cabal 2.0 does not, and never will, exist — just so people know, of course. --Tristessa (talk) 21:05, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
