How weird you are. You don't really follow Wikipolitics, do you? No, that's not it — you like to type, you don't like to read. I'm absolutely pleased as punch that Eric has been wheeled out Wikipedia's back door to his slot at the bar. And I'll be even more pleased when he melts down and leaves WPO shortly.
I am bitterly UNHAPPY with all of the current Arbcom, save two, for kissing WMF's ring, for their violations of norms of fair investigation and fair defense of subjects against charges levied. The Star Chamber bullshit has become intolerable — and I speak in particular of the Fram case, not the Corbett almost-case-that-was-shut-down-before-it-started-because-the-yob-socked.

I don't think I've called this one the worst one ever, even though it might be.

Luminaries like NewYorkBrad, who has done more than most on the Committee to ensure Eric never ever looked like he was even in the same universe as other editors of similar contributions, as far as responsibility for his own actions was concerned.
I'd very much like an Arbcom with a core of Opabinia r., Worm That Turned, New York Brad, and Drmies... Those are the skill players. We can always find some competent linemen on the waiver wire.
P.S. I wonder if Jim would run. He'd be good in that role.
