As usual, if the community wants an explanation from their Administrators, they have to consult their unofficial Village Pump, Wikipediocracy.....(continuation of the harassment of WMF staff through the promulgation of conspiracy theories is just an additional bonus)
Since you asked, here's why I went back:
I left because of the apparent power grab by the WMF over local control of routine behavioral problems, the seeming favoritism given to a friend (wife, is it?) of a board member, and the appallingly terrible response from the CEO . If they want to take over the day-to-day work, they can take over all the shit jobs admins and functionaries do for them currently.
For weeks they didn't do shit. Then, seemingly, finally, they blinked and are letting arbcom handle it.
I don't care for this secret trial with invisible evidence any more than the rest of you, but arbcom doesn't have any way around it. T&S assures everyone their communications with them are private, so they can't put the (70 pages!) of material in any publicly viewable place, so for arbcom it was this or nothing. I certainly hope this is a one-time deal and not a precedent for the new normal.
I give not one shit about Fram specifically and it wouldn't upset me one bit if arbcom ended up agreeing with T&S and banning him. This was never about "justice for Fram", it is about local control and the paid staff not treating us like peons, in particular T&S when up until they came along we were doing their job for free and generally doing pretty well at it.
If this is all just an illusion to placate the masses while the plan is to actually replace us all with bots or whatever, that shoe will drop at some point and that'll be that for me.
All that being said I am still kind of waiting and seeing what really happens. the current crisis seems to have passed but that doesn't necessarily mean the WMF learned the right lesson from it, they've shown in the past how incredibly tone deaf they can be about this sort of thing.
You can complain about people being treated like peons when you are prepared to accept the FUCKING OBVIOUS issue that what to do about Fram
had long since ceased to be a routine matter in the en.wiki dispute resolution system. As amusing as it is to hear you portray what Fram, as an Administrator, was doing was merely "routine behavioural problems". What kind of shit show are you part of? Higher standard, remember.
I mean, I know reality is hard for pieces of shit like you, but it is a reality that T&S had sufficient evidence that Fram was not even remotely being handled the way your policies say he should be. As for precedent, which has of course long since eclipsed local policy, I can think of none for the sheer amount of back-sliding and excuse making and general dysfunction that seemed to be the reason an ArbCase never got filed or accepted.
You're the prime example of people in the local en.wiki community being deaf. Not tone deaf, just wilfully fucking deaf. Supremely arrogant. It doesn't matter what the WMF says to people like you. The truth is whatever you decide it is, like the conspiracy theory peddling fantasists that you are, at your core.
Poor little you, the real victims, eh? That evil WMF with their black helicopters. The rights of legacy vested Administrators who are completely untouchable except by external action - the real victims.
This is absolutely about justice for Fram. As in, why were his victims denied justice for so fucking long? When has a problem Administrator ever been allowed to go so far that even individual Arbitrators start contemplating becoming DAs and filing cases themselves?
The Foundation stepped in not to grab power, but to take the reigns, reigns that had clearly been dropped by the locals, up to and including the Committee. They wanted to correct the Fram problem, and send the message to the community that they need to do better in how they handle such problems, if they want to continue to be the Wikipedia franchise holder for the Anglosphere.
The community got mad because the baby always hates its medicine.
If you deny this is what happened, then use your mouth hole to deny it. Offer some proof, a convincing counter-argument. You won't, chiefly because you're a coward.
You're so lucky you have a quisling like Uncle Jake prepared to allow this garbage be posted on his forum and let you run away when (more likely if) it gets questioned.
You should leave Wikipedia now, you aren't going to get what you want, because you're such a goddamned bare faced liar. This only works as a strategy inside the cult. Outsiders don't have to buy it, and they don't need to buy it, because you don't have the power to make them believe your self-serving bullshit is the truth.
Your time is so over, you're just being really slow to realize it.
