So fitting to see an example of RexxS not suffering fools involved something as trivial as emojis. If you know Bishonen's gloried history, her epic battle with the Founder, that truly is proof RexxS is her Apprentice.

Neither should be anywhere near any role which requires you to be able to put things into perspective and act dispassionately. But this is Wikipedia, it was all fucked before people even realised that sort of basic fucking common sense in choosing who gets to do what was going to be a necessary part of their endeavour.

As such, it does seem rather unfair to deny RexxS what came so easily to others no less fucked up than he is, if not worse (I am assuming his choice not to stand until now has partly been him sensibly realising he didn't need the aggravation). But to live in a world where the likes of Drmies and Ritchie are theoretically your superiors, considered more wise and trustworthy then you, then you'd understandably be pissed. Then again, seen from the outside, who is the little mug in that scenario? The fool, as it were.

Not hard to see where he gets the idea "I thought I told you...." is acceptable either.

HELLO. :!:

He sees his Queen be that arrogant to other editors all the fucking time.

To Bishonen, being an Administrator is all about the power. The power to be the one who tells you. It hardly matters whether what is being said is correct or justifiable, as has been seen many times as she colours waaay outside the lines of policy, taking Wikipedia Administration to ever greater heights of hypocrisy.

And so, as the Master does, so does the Apprentice. When RexxS tells someone, it also matters little what is being said, rather that as the person saying it, he was no doubt doing so with all the confidence that Bishonen would be right there behind him, if his opponent as much as thought about questioning his Authoritah.

The more you think about it, the stupider it seems that after a decade RexxS would ever unilaterally decide he really needs the extra hassle of being an Administrator himself, given he has no need to be actually pushing the buttons. It really does seem like he is being pushed into applying, solely for the tactical advantages that it will bring her Highness in battles to come.

He may even think it is his choice, Bishonen is nothing if not a master manipulator, a trait which will have seen her rise to the very top simply through the forces of Wikipedia natural selection. If she wasn't so selfish and lazy, she could have been an Arbitrator quite easily. Drmies was, after all, and he did virtually fuck all, except of course the thing he had decided he needed that power for. He's really does fit the role of her Consort perfectly.

What role that leaves RexxS at Court, we shall see. He may yet be slapped down hard, and he may yet be daft enough to think Bishonen would be upset for him. If she felt anything at all, it would be disappointment at her own misfortune. She'll have to take out this guy's trash for years. Like having a grown son still living at home. Very fitting. Silver linings, and all that.

What one person has mentioned already, should frankly be ringing massive alarm bells for all. While it is normal for candidates to pur their best foot forward and make calm and considered contributions to their RfA, in RexxS's case, he is almost being too careful. To the point the person participating in this RfA is virtually unrecognizable as the same RexxS that can be seen at noticeboards etc.

Now, since we know RexxS isn't desperate for the tools, and has no long lasting ambition for them, and he has basically admitted he could forsee people opposing for lack of need, it raises the very real possibility that the only explanations left for him standing are either, this is really just a joke gone terribly bad (or good), that this really is just some lame attempt to prove that all RfA really needs to be about is trust, or the final scenario, that this is a serious run that has resulted from Bishonen needing him to become an admin, but with one or both realising playing it with a straight bat wasn't going to cut it.

It is quite the plan, if it was the latter - pretend it was a joke, to get people off guard, while also giving them nothing to scrutinize in an actual nomination statement. But then over-compensate for those failings by participating perfectly thereafter, the coaching clearly in evidence, even through you know fine well you are presenting a very false impression of how you are really going to be as an Administrator.

Here's what that makes the whole thing quite sad if not a little pathetic - if RexxS really is what supporters claim he is, then where's the respect? The self-respect, and the respect for the process. You admitted you were trying to give yourself an easy out if it bombed, and you've seen how many people are perturbed by the confusion over whether this was a serious run or not. Now it is clear it is not going to bomb and people really do want to take it seriously and support properly, then just withdraw, tell Bishonen thanks but no thanks, and either write a proper self-nomination, or find someone to write a proper nomination.

Of all the things wrong with doing it this way, it has included the bizarre sight of someone supporting with more of the same lake joke crap seen in the nomination, only to move to neutral when someone who was actually paying atention, pointed out their assurances of the candidate's suitability looked as lame as the rest of his statements.
