Take a look Trust & Safety, look at how many editors of the English Wikipedia community don't give a damn about you, think you're worse than shit on your shoe.
This guy is hailed as a hero, despite knowingly reversing an action designed to keep people safe when he did not have and knew he never would have all the required information to make that decision. He's directly violated what was previously understood to be a bright line rule of the en.wiki community, office actions shall not be undone without consulting the office, and he has faced no consequences. The local ArbCom, inexplicably handed the task of ruling on this obvious misconduct by your employers, officially lodged a no decision. Unofficially, they too hail him as a hero. So you know where their loyalties lie.
Why would you work for these people? Why work for a Board and an Executive Director who would have people like this installed as your partners and colleagues? They don't have anything to lose. Do you know who is behind the Floquenbeam account? A real name and address, where lawyer's papers can be sent? No? Well, how come this guy apparently now more power to make critical, potentially life altering decisions, than you?
If you have any sense, you would now go find better jobs. Why would you accept a job where you're just the people who have to deal with the pedophiles and the people issuing threats of violence, because it's just too much for these cowards, but you're not allowed to protect victims of harassment if these people decide you must be doing something crazy or corrupt to have banned Fram?
What they charge you with, ironically, would get you fired, or worse, if it was true. They clearly know nothing of the legal obligations and exposure you have as employees of a non-profit. It's not Federal grant money you administer, but it's the next worst thing when it comes to the sort of corruption and corporate malfeasance they have happily accused you of, such is their utter disbelief Fram could be remotely guilty.
Do they care about the consequences on your careers of these slurs? Of course they don't. As you will have seen if you read this forum, evidently according to the en.wiki community, BLP doesn't apply to identifiable Foundation emoloyees. It does, oddly enough, apply to Fram, an unidentified pseudonym. Their allegations and smears are all easily discoverable, easily linked to your real names, your LinkedIn profiles, etc. Is that what you signed up for? Is that how you thought this whole movement thing worked? I doubt it.
This guy wanted to be a hero to the community, not the movement, without any consequences to himself from the movement. It was about his ego, his status, his power. He has his victory.
Pay attention, all Foundation staff. It has never been local en.wiki policy that office actions are subject to consensus. When (not if) this RfA ends in a cake-walk, the point will be proven that not a single en.wiki policy can be trusted by anyone, least of all by those not deemed to be part of the community (that's you lot on the salaries, in case you haven't noticed), they can all be ignored if the volunteer mob wishes it, and their local ArbCom will stand aside and do nothing.I knew the reversal of an office action (in spite of having consensus behind me) would cause further disruption, and I did it anyway.
And not ignored in a perfectly valid WP:IAR way - the people who justified this as an application of IAR were only showing their own total ignorance (basically, if you knowingly cause World War III, you lose your right to invoke IAR as your defence). It is not a get out of jail free card, nor a permit to shout fire in a crowded theatre, it is something whose invocation should be so uncontroversial, it should be barely noticeable.
It should be noted that at no point did Floquenbeam say he was invoking IAR, since he at least knew fine well what he was doing was not covered by it. It was as they described it, civil disobedience, a defiant gesture, a poke in the eye for the Foundation. A naked act of abusing Foundation granted tools for political ends.
Everyone in the Foundation who doesn't have a massive travel budget and mates they can bunk with at Davos, it's time for you to seriously consider where you fit in the movement. Because I don't see how any of this shit is worth it, the utter degradation of it all. You couldn't pay me a million dollars to consider people like Floquenbeam as my colleagues, partners, customers, or whatever bullshit they're going to try and serve you up to justify this utterly absurd situation you now find yourselves in.
I'll leave you with this.......
.....proof, if it were needed, that he has royally screwed you all over, and it wasn't even on a point of principle (because where I come from, if it is a point of principle, you say "and I would do the same again").Also, if it helps those on the fence: I've reached my lifetime quota for reversing office actions, so if/when another completely unacceptable office action ever gets made, I'll leave it to others to reverse it (or not).
