Request for Reconfirmation[edit]

  1. User:Gordon Ecker/Block reviews - in my opinion, showing bad judgement, being easily trolled (and prolonging the trolling of the trolls), and overturning blocks for no good reason. More arguments given at User talk:Gordon Ecker/Block reviews#To be quite honest, you've got it completely backward. In general, I'm having "wtf" moments when viewing Gordon's actions regarding administration (and, in some cases, policy/consensus). -- pling User Pling sig.png 16:11, 4 December 2009 (UTC)
  2. I wasn't sure what to think when Gordon started the reconfirmation project, but ever since then I've seen nothing but bad news. I think admins with different backgrounds and strengths is a good thing, but if a particular sysop is absolutely terrible at dealing with trolls, that sysop is expected to stay away from troll cases. Gordon isn't doing that. Furthermore, Gordon is overturning year-old cases without really reading the discussion going on. Downplaying solid evidence and personal confessions as rumors and hearsay, ignoring built-in wiki features as ways to identify users with malicious intent, and placing way too much faith in the CheckUser extension all make me wary of his continued sysophood. I would prefer he simply realize his mistakes and atone for them, but I don't foresee that happening. -Auron 16:27, 4 December 2009 (UTC)
  3. Is there anything else to say? :/ - J.P.User J.P. Christmas sig.pngTalk 20:50, 4 December 2009 (UTC)
  4. I agree. Initially the project was just a waste of time that came from nowhere, but now it's becoming detrimental to the wiki on many different levels (removing bans that should not have been removed, second guessing other sysops, etc). Erasculio 20:56, 4 December 2009 (UTC)
