Bart, you do some great stuff, but the dKosopedia isn't "The World According to Bart." You're wielding the ban power too frequently. and are often inflexible where discussion is necessary. I've removed sysop priv from your account. --Centerfielder 07:23, 30 May 2007 (PDT)
Centerfielder, I urge you to reconsider. I didn't realize that I was required to adopt a pro-Israel position. If you cannot change that decision then I will have to reconsider "doing some great stuff" here. I doubt that your buddy with the pro-Israel bias can step up to plate and bat like I can. There ARE other minor Wikipedia. BartFraden.
Centerfielder, take a big picture look around at this dKos operation. Look at who has been contributing over the past year. You had four, now only three, people making consistent contributions. On person working on the Plame Leak, one person doing Hawaiian politics, and Corncam doing Iowa politics and a lot of Congressional stubs. I'm the fourth. Beyond that there is the pathetic circle jerk involving tag management. In future, as the new welld eveloped contributions increasingly evaporates and the quality of existing articles declines you will have only You to blame. Mediocrity drives out genius. Goodbye. BartFraden
Isn't it cute when someone dramatically refers to themselves as a genius? I'm not posting to gloat (I wish Bart were sticking around to help us come to an amicable consensus on the I/P issue in the "Progressive" article and others), but I want to thank you for being evenhanded in your administration of this wiki. I'm a relatively new contributor, but so far it doesn't seem like the place is falling apart. I'll do my best to contribute when and where I've got the expertise to do so.

Ohwilleke 12:36, 5 Sep 2005 (PDT) How do you figure out IP address if necessary to ban someone like Bugmenow? Do I need to know?
Hi Centerfielder, I am puzzled. Why would you revert to the following text in the George Allen article?: "...French ethnic slurs that his psedo-French mother..." BartFraden
- You're right, I blew it. I reverted some idiotic language, but didn't pay attention to what I was reverting to. The whole topic is too much conjecture anyway. It's gone now. -- Centerfielder 19:42, 4 November 2006 (PST)
I put a reply to you on the Discussion tab of the 2008 Presidents page.

Sorry but it occured to me if one drops the Secular part of phrase "Secular Jew" how quickly what Billo is saying would be deamed anti-semitism.
How about we compromise on the reading list?
As for the Jim Webb page don't worry I'm not taking it personally but since it's going to remain locked would you mind reverting the bull bart wrote about carter before he left?
