This motherfucker.....words fail me.
He is either lying, or telling the world he is the sort of stupid ass who maligns people based on hearsay.This editor, at least, has no interest in following or even visiting (and never has) the Wikipedia criticism and hate sites, which by all accounts appear to be significantly populated by people who have been blocked or banned by those committed to keeping the encyclopedia free of PoV, financial exploitation, vandalism, disruption, trolling, and other divisive behaviour.
Not a great look for the "Editor in Chief" of Wikipedia's mighty newsletter. Do your fucking research.
Mind you, it's better than how he recently came across in an incident covered by another "hate site".....

Losing his marbles is a fucking generous way to describe this freak's regular departures into areas of outright trollery and the formenting of discord in all areas of Wikipedia. Maybe he's got a competition going with The Rambling Man, who can be the most tiresome Whiny Little Bitch without ever being told to just fuck the hell off out of it if Wikipedia or your fellow Wikipedians are making you even a tenth as miserable as you claim.
At this point, he would be smart to admit to actually being mentally ill, or at the very least having undiagnosed impulse control or social interaction issues. Because if he wants people to think what he's doing is the product of calm and rational thought, well, they will.
Hence I suspect nobody will be shedding a tear in learning he is properly taking his ball home. Having already handed in his Admin toolbelt due to the above incident, he has posted a job vacancy for EiC from 31 August, and stated his intention to "retire from Wikipedia at the end of the month".

I'll believe it when I see it, as it seems to me like he has probably said this before.
In true Kupdung style, there's just no place on Wikipedia where he won't make it all about him. The following is the Wikipedia equivalent of crashing a wake just to tell everyone all about how you're sad because your wife is cheating on you.

Despite all his words about how crucial it is, his reign as EiC is ending no differently to all the rest......
At the end of the day, if he really is going, then what sort of epitaph does he deserve? Well, I can think of nothing more fitting than to say, if you're so bad you make Gamaliel look like the good guy, then you really are a nasty piece of work.With Bri and myself having very limited time time this month for all the cleaning up and preparation for the August issue, there may well be a delay getting it out. It may also not have the same quantity of content. Suggestions welcome. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 06:39, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
Into the fucking sea with you!Rosie, entering my 80th decade very soon, all my life I have been an ardent supporter of gender equality. However, following recent criticisms from an arbitrator I am withdrawing my active support for Women in Red, and will no longer be actively helping to rescue bios about women, translate, or write them. I just thought you ought to know. I may even consider writing a Signpost article about the misandry male editors and admins occasionally have to put up with. I'm so sorry. I thought I had been doing the right thing for this lady's RfA here and defending it again here. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 05:02, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
The "misandry" that you have to put up with over the course of your entire life probably doesn't equal what a single one of these women has to put up with on a single day on Wikipedia. I'm glad you have been an ardent supporter of gender equality your entire life, but so have many other men, and we haven't withdrawn that support because one woman made a polite request of us. Why are you posting here? Are you expecting the Ekklesiazousai to proclaim you Proud Defender of Women and beg you not to depart? Gamaliel (talk) 21:49, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
Rubbish, Gamaliel. You should know me better, and nowhere have I said or even inferred that I have had to put up with "misandry" over the course of my entire life - I haven't. Quite to the contrary, I have been an active campaigner for gender equality (and LGBT) for decades before Wikipedia was conceived. GorillaWarfare has now apologised. I wrongly assumed that she was an active member of WIR, and I apologise for that error. I think we can close this. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 00:48, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
User:GorillaWarfare does not have to apologise for anything. Her request is one that could be reasonably made by any editor. Xxanthippe (talk) 07:49, 13 August 2018 (UTC).
@Xxanthippe: you need to pipe down, you were the cause of all this. When you are a bit calmer, you can join me and Ritchie in the pub. Mine's a glass of cool Tavel, or if you're buying dinner, a robust Vacqueyras or Gigondas will do fine with wild boar or caramelized saddle of hare. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 11:10, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
Nothing will convince us more of your commitment to gender equality than you telling a woman to pipe down. Gamaliel (talk) 12:55, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
I have stricken my apology above. I assumed I had caught you at a bad time and that was why you'd reacted so disproportionately, but you've continued to react in this over-the-top manner and I am not willing to put up with it. I do hope it's not the case that I've caught you at a bad time—if it is, I hope things improve for you, but I'm also only so willing to accept people mistreating me regardless of what is going on with them. I made a polite request that you not refer to me by my real name when referring to others by their usernames, you reacted explosively, and after seeing you appear on my watchlist on several editors' talk pages to share that you'd left Women in Red because of our conversation (despite me not being an active member of WiR) I decided the best thing to do was circle back to post asking why you'd reacted so disproportionately and apologize since it seemed I'd been misunderstood. You didn't actually answer my questions but rather made another jab at me. I decided to let it go given things seemed to be settled... until I saw you'd posted on Rosiestep's talk page once again, this time telling Xxanthippe to "pipe down" and calm down, and telling them they "were the cause of all this". I posted to say that no, my request was separate from whatever conversation Xxanthippe was having and you told me to "Give it a rest now Ms GorillaWarfare" (I see you removed the "Ms" later because it was a "typo"...), that I'd "pompously declared [your use of my real name while referring to the others you listed by their usernames] to be an mysoginism", and "Gert over it". You need to stop making these accusations against me; I have done nothing wrong, and I have treated you only with respect. I would like the same from you.
