It's an entertaining piece, not without truth, therefore I'll republish it here in remembrance of our warrior.

If Wikipedia actually was interested in what they boast in their mission statement, they would at least make the following changes:
Wikipedia's mission statement evidently is false advertising.
- Make Rule WP:G5 and WP:G13 ineffective. These rules are (excuse my language) utter bullshit and counter-productive.
- Obligate administrators to actually follow WP:5P4 and WP:ADMINACCT. Administrators on Wikipedia have a lot of social pressure.
- Take action against clearly misbehaving administrators, especially Bbb23 who revoked Aron Manning's talk page access instantly after a bit of criticism.
- Judge users by their actual edits, not whether they were blocked at some earlier points.
Many current Wikipedia administrators are evidently highly prone to social/peer pressure. Therefore they approve of each other's abusive conduct.
