A rather controversial edit to make with ones sockpuppet.
(And So Do Its Critics.)
.......BrownHairedGirl is perfectly aware of the use of the vernacular, and will surely admit that there was nothing misogynous in LP's comment. Imagine he had simply told her to 'bugger off'... Part of all this is the ingrained attitude of many editors to deliberately look for any excuse to claim being insulted and embark on a character assasination campaign. ..... Life is a bitch; so is being a Wikipedia editor who works hard and in good faith. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 03:49, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
For the record, @Kudpung, I reckon the meaning of the vernacular usage depends on the context. Some uses are much less charged than other uses.
However, when a hostile man who has been hurling insults at me for weeks says shut up (snip) bitch (snip) shut up, then I have learnt from long experience that it's a significant escalation to hardcore misogyny and a silencing-threat which in meatspace comes with a significant risk of immediate violence.
In real life, that sort of comment requires a rapid escape, and radical restructuring of relationships. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 04:13, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
Would you prefer they told you the truth? Nobody wants to work for a bunch of ungrateful assholes, and it's pretty darn hard to write software without a clear specification.The enigma is why every time the Community needs the software improving or repairing, the high-ups in charge tell us that there is not enough money and not enough staff.

I don't think three hours is enough to even justify that first line.Oppose. I have reviewed every single one of the candidate's 347 creations. The danger of mass creating stubs is what is clearly demonstrated by their large number of articles tagged for attention, including unsourced or poorly sourced BLP that do not meet notability criteria, and some articles which I have had to PROD. Despite the large number of pages created, they do not pass my criteria for according WP:Autopatrolled which require all created articles to be of clean format and free of tags or taggable issues that would raise he attention of New Page Patrollers. The candidate's creations are rarely complete even as stubs - in the majority of cases even the stub tag is missing - the very item that might just attract the attention of someone who might be disposed to expand the article. That being said, if a stub is capable of expansion, why cant the creator not do that expansion? My mantra has always been: 'If one wants to police Wikipedia pages, one should also prove they know how to produce them,' nevertheless unlike some RfA voters, I don't go so far as to demand a FA or two and a raft of GA. Some of the earlier articles might just scrape through a request for Autopatrolled, but the rest and any future creations clearly require the scrutiny of New Page Reviewers. I also concur with others that there is insufficient work in maintenance areas including AIV, ANI, AfD, etc which does not inspire confidence in sufficient knowledge of policies and guidelines, and no work at all at NPP which though not required, is one of the best learning and starting tasks for aspiring admin candidates. There is a clear lack of use of Edit Summaries, which are important for an admin or maintenance worker. I am concerned about the COI issue - as I understand the rules, it is not only about specifically being paid to edit, but being a salaried employee of the subject of the article is a very strong Conflict of Interest. I am not doubting for a moment that the candidate can be trusted not to abuse the tools, but he required experience is just not there. My own RfA criteria, which are far from being the most severe, and on which I often allow a lot of leeway, are unforunately not met. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 03:31, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
