SuggestionEdit

Hey, Tony. Re: Your image of Chris Young warming-up in what used to be the visitor's bullpen. As you know, the bullpens have been relocated under the bleachers. I wonder if the caption could be reworded to capture both the past and the present. Just a thought. ―Buster7  21:48, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

Nomination for deletion of Template:Members of the U.S. House of Representatives from New YorkEdit

three men in a boatEdit

even reading your comments I am stumped why I joined in on this one - if there is a need to discuss further, I honestly feel at sea as to what happened in the first place. JarrahTree 22:17, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

@JarrahTree, you will inevitably be stumped if you try to parse this a normal deletion review.
Wikipedia:Deletion review/Log/2019 March 28#Template:Three_Men_in_a_Boat was a thoroughly bad faith exercise by Tony. At User talk:JJMC89#Sloppy_close, Tony ran through a range of bizarre rationales, before finally settling on an elaborately wikilawyered attempt to justified a daft claim that the merged template was adding lots of superfluous links. But having built his whole DRV case on "too may links", Tony then pronounced himself satisfied because more links had been added to the merged template.
I've rarely seen someone demonstrate their own bad faith so clearly as that. I think that the extra links which Tony and/or Woodensuperman added are a welcome improvement. But by all the logic of Tony's DRV nomination, they were a serious breach of policy. He can't have it both ways.
As Tony admitted at DRV, the whole thing was actually all about Tony's WP:OWNership.
I have never seen such thoroughly bad faith abuse of the deletion review process. Tony's vexatious games wasted lots of the time and energy of other editors, esp of the closer JJMC89. I hope that Tony will never pull a stunt like that again. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 00:01, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
