He must have even having his nap with his boyfriend BBb23, as surprisingly for an incident involving CU with these two, he wasn't the very next person to be seen involved.I totally endorse this--I ran a quick CU on the IsraelAssa account, and there's enough there for a real CU, one who isn't in need of a nap right now.

To be clear just how this comment should be read in terms of just professionalism alone, this is a tenured professor who has already served one term on ArbCom, and as such, has been a CheckUser for several years now. He did not get get given that powerful tool because he asked for it, he has it simply because of his one unremarkable term, it being bundled with the role, and he has never been shy about his inability to use it properly. It can no longer be argued he has the will or the skill to learn. The way he got CU mirrors the way he got tenure, by deception, leveraging the fact there are people out there who don't understand Wikipedia.
He failed in his bid for a second term, and it has to have been in some part due to how much of a fucking amateur he comes across as in an area of Administration as serious as the handling of privileged personal information, even in the eyes of the Wikipedians, for whom the negative connotations of the word amateur is oh so fitting. Despite that ability to at least recognise obvious fuck ups, their institutional incompetence means he gets to keep this special power for life.
The less said about the fact they give it to people who need to take naps, the better. Some might say that as a joke, perhaps because they don't want to reveal they are AFK because they have to go to marriage counselling (although Wikipedia of course attracts Administrators who are happily so open), but as bad as his marriage must be, you can be reasonably certain Drmies is being truthful, he is literally having a nap. Wikipedia addiction is a tiring business, even for those who don't feel constrained but the social convention of not editing while you're supposed to be working your actual job, or paying your wife and family due care and attention.
