There will clearly never be a consensus for any administrative
action to be taken with respect to this incident, therefore this
discussion only continues to serve as a drama-generating time
vampire. Both sides of the argument need to step back, take a deep
breath, and act like rational adults. The editors that are
alleging disruption need to realize that there is a difference
between someone being uncivil/disruptive and someone simply
disagreeing with your point of view. The editors who have been
accused of disruption need to realize that while it is ok to
disagree with someone’s point of view, doing it in a brusque or
rude manner will only make it less likely that the other side will
actually consider your point of view, rather than simply focus on
your attitude and ultimately end up in an entirely unproductive
discussion like the one you see below here.
In summary, no action will come of this discussion, and all of the
involved parties here need to work this out amongst themselves
like mature adults.
One editor was disgusted and requested an Arbitration which looks
like it will be declined, which is preferred until we at least
find out if these guys intend to keep it up. (I know my
Wikihounder of the last year intends to and has been doing so.)https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case#Gender_Gap_Task_Force_Issues
Despite the large number of individuals disgusted with the
disruption, some Admins and Arbitrators refuse to take it
Unfortunately, the only real solution is Electing Admins and
Aribtrators against the Gender Gap.
But who needs the grief??
