I have quite a history on StackExchange and while I don't explicitly recall posting to the specific meta for english.stackexchange.com, I can't say that I haven't posted either. There would be no trustworthy authority on this. Most of my posts have probably been deleted, and I think there is good reason to believe Jeff had meta.english.stackexchanged.com censored in anticipation of my appointment to moderator. I can only aver a firm understanding of the dynamics of this site, a passion for Q/A, and a desire to fight tyranny and rebel against injustice.

@jcolebrand No, I won't make that promise. You can't have "fair morals and ethics" in secrecy. All you can have is a junta that rules without accountability. We've already got that now. Perhaps you should cast your vote for one of my candidates running for the establishment. Yes, "the public always has a right to know." They can't make an educated decision if you deprive them of that information.

How many people get banned not by the system's algorithm, or the community, but by Jeff personally? It's clear my interests and his our different. I've always fought for the people. He even implemented a new system to explicitly stop me from asking questions on MSO after I was unbanned. I think it's safe to say he fears those he governs, and realizes I speak for them.

Can you ever truly trust anyone? If you can craft the criteria I'm sure I'll satisfy it. Firstly, I've never worked for SE -- if I was I wouldn't be complaint in its current condition. I'd say that makes me specifically more trustworthy than, say, you. I've also survived many bans on MSO and the community has clamored for my return, perhaps in light of my formal nomination you could request Jeff to declassify those old posts and conversations? I've also always been consistent in my approach for transparency and democracy.

comment Why is “taking a biscuit” a bad thing in the UK?
I find this explanation to be the most convincing thus far; and, after seeing Life of Brian and other perverse films from this region I'm inclined to think it is inline with their culture. Good job doing the research required.

comment What is the role and historical context for “come” in “Kingdom come”?
I actually just wanted to use it myself in the context of sued into kingdom come which is a rather common context in the south. It seems to be something you can be knocked or punched into.
