Wikipedia talk:Requests for comment/Xiong

I don't know how to add this stuff, so I will put it here for now:

I agree with the basic idea that archived talk should simply be a link to a "declared good" point in the talk page's history (with some software changes, perhaps, to make it work fluidly), instead of copying and pasting to a new archive page. This could save a lot of work and mistaken edits. If this were my idea, I would start a discussion page about changing our policies. Xiong, however, took it upon himself to begin implementing his idea with (apparently) no discussion or consensus, in opposition to established policies.

Also raise the point that the discussion page he archived was discussion still in progress, on a controversial topic he was involved in. - Omegatron 22:03, Apr 19, 2005 (UTC)
  • Basically thinks that he is "above the law", and that his vision of the future of Wikipedia automatically overrules everyone else's.

Grade-school logic[edit]

Writes Xiong, "We've both been bad, but he bit me first".

Ah, grade-school logic, always a lovely bit of misdirection.

Since the page is entitled "Requests for comment/Xiong", let's talk about Xiong here, mmkay? --Calton | Talk 00:07, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)

To be fair, under some circumstances extreme provocation has been considered something of a mitigating factor in cases of lapses in Wikicivility. Xiong exists within the larger Wikipedia community, and it's not entirely insupportable to look at the way that community interacts with him.
This is not to say that such circumstances warrant a free pass for the 'victim', nor that I necessarily endorse Xiong's version of events. --TenOfAllTrades (talk/contrib) 00:36, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Down the memory hole[edit]

I am extremely upset to see my comments on this page have been obliterated by the recent games played here. I demand their restoration if such is technically feasible -- I fear it is not, and that my comments have been speedied to unretrievable oblivion. Since I can no longer believe that my comment will remain here in any form, it seems pointless to continue. — Xiongtalk* 01:24, 2005 May 1 (UTC)


Xiong seems to have filled a request for arbitration against himself. --cesarb 01:44, 1 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Interesting comment[edit]
