Dwarf Fortress Wiki talk:Request for Adminship/Aescula
furry issue - request for "verification" of facts not in evidence
1st, there is no evidence that "furries do X" or "furries are Y". Second, even ~if~ true as a generalization, there is no evidence that Aescula is therefore the same, that "all" furries "do X" or "are Y". Third, you don't think that anything can be criticized with cheap-shot untrue generalizations? Dwarf Fortress players, or people who edit wiki's, perhaps?--Albedo 21:30, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
- I would hope that the people who are admins don't take this as a literal vote, but take each comment on it's merit and decide whether or not someone should be an administrator based off of the feeling of the community, and not just counting up votes which aren't equivalent things.

- I am not aware of any real studies found on furry behavior, but you'd have to be pretty blind to ignore the ever-mounting examples that abound on the internet. Do a google search for "furry drama" and you will get nearly a million examples. Contrary to your belief, sane furries are the minority. I think it's safe to assume Aescula has a high probability of letting her beliefs interfere with her judgement.
- We're here to evaluate if Aescula would be a good admin based on her previous edits to this wiki. We're not here to say OH MY GOD IT'S A FURRY THUS IT WILL RUIN THE WIKI, which is an entirely unsubstantiateable claim, and is completely irrelevant to this discussion. Unless you can OVERWHELMINGLY prove your beliefs (hint: without at least 3 properly done scientific studies, all involving Aescula herself, you won't be able to do so), this topic will be dropped. --Briess 09:20, 27 February 2010 (UTC)
