There was the “Administrators general strike“, “editors on strike“, “participant’s strike” (Beetstra), and just plain “strike“. Then there was this chart, showing the activity level of the strikers was about 2% of the total Wikipedia activity.
The bureaucrats notice board WP:BN has seen a steady trickle of admins coming back to be resysopped. The latest are Yelyos and Ched.
In the meantime, several RfAs have continued. The first were challenged as strike breakers, or rather the woman was challenged. But now Floquenbeam, having served out his one-month desyssop at the hands of the WMF, has come crawling back at the end of the ban, obediently requesting a return of the tools, and there is not a whisper against it.
But I do remember another time, on Jimbo’s talk page, where Floquenbeam was so upset about someone not approving of printing the c-bomb, that Floquenbeam went out of his way to use the word without using it, if you know what I mean. That is, he didn’t have the guts to actually type it, but he made sure everyone knew what word he was thinking. So Floquenbeam, no I have not forgotten that you consider my body to be the most vile and disgusting thing in the universe, that you have no problem with demeaning women, that you are willing to actually make the effort to go to Jimbo’s talk page to make sure everyone knows it, and use it to create drama, yet again. So why don’t you go play with your waifu.
I can’t really get any sympathy going for any of this.
Now that big rebel Floquenbeam the c-bomb warrior has come crawling back, how many more will continue to hold to the fiction of a strike? Even for the ones who say they are on strike, like Carrite, it’s business as usual, they are busy participating in discussions and editing articles.
The next action of the WMF will be definitive, and having exhausted their social capital proving they are only interested in maintaining their position of privilege at the expense of other users, the “community” will be unable to mount even a token resistance against even the most dubious proposal. Checkmate.
