An admin under the microscope: Snowman flames newbies? Or just oversensitive snowflakes?

New case: GiantSnowman

A large snowman, and a potential future editor

The case concerning administrator GiantSnowman was accepted on 17 December 2018. Issues at hand include the (mis)use of mass rollback, vandal warnings for non-vandal edits, and blocking editors considered constructive by others (i.e. WP:BITE not heeded by this administrator).

Evidence phase closed January 10; workshop phase closed January 17. As of our publication deadline, the Proposed Decision is several days late. See WT:Arbitration/Requests/Case/GiantSnowman/Proposed decision#Running for new timeline (sort of).

Last minute update: as we go to press, Arbcom voting has not completed, and the only posted Proposed Remedy is desysopping.
