: Tony, I've applied a three-day block to your account to allow everyone involved to take a time-out. Since you are not a frequent contributor here hopefully this will not inconvenience you, and that should also give everyone involved time to step back and hopefully gain some distance from what have become emotionally-charged discussions. As I mentioned earlier, while suggestions for improving the site are very welcome, your comment style has been almost universally perceived as combative and is creating a distraction for everyone involved - based on your earlier comments I suspect you would disagree with that assessment, but the fact that discussions have strayed from matters pertaining to the site and into unproductive areas is a testimony to the strong reactions your words have elicited. Regarding your earlier comment that "''constructing proposals for change as "combative" is part of the strategy to resist all change''", I would propose that we can easily put that theory to the test in three days if you would like: if you have any specific proposals for change, let's discuss them without any blanket statements that this site was a waste of money from the WMF, without accusations that the editors here are unable to change, without repeated statements about the inevitable demise of WV, and without threats to "''spend considerable effort in broadcasting to people in the WMF movement just what kind of closed, retrogressive, bullying mentality dominates here''", and I would suggest that those change proposals will not be "resisted" and will instead be addressed productively. -- [[User:Wrh2|Ryan]] &bull; ([[User talk:Wrh2|talk]]) &bull; 16:15, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
::Right, you'll never see me again. (Oh, you'll see me, but it won't be on ''this'' site.) It is morally reprehensible, and demonstrates a clear strategy to get rid of critical voices—anyone who dares to stand up to the boys' club here.<p>From now on, I'll be deeply committed to letting Wikimedians know what a corrupt and bullying power structure has developed here. This is so dysfunctional it is laughable. [[User:Tony1|<font color="darkgreen">'''Tony'''</font >]] [[User talk:Tony1|<font color="darkgreen">(talk) </font >]] 16:30, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
