  1. The unsurprised —No-One Jones 06:53, 25 Jun 2004 (UTC). This type of behavior seems to be RK's standard operating procedure—see for example the previous request for comment on his behavior.

  4. Danny 17:58, 20 Jul 2004 (UTC) Personally, I find his incessant complaining that everyone is a Nazi to be a cheapening of the Holocaust and the memory of the victims. That smacks of revisionism more than most of what I have seen on Wikipedia.

Outside view[edit]

This is a summary written by users not directly involved with the dispute but who would like to add an outside view of the dispute.

RK can be reactionary at times, but is usually willing to continue discussion on issues until some sort of resolution can be reached. The best solution to the problems outlined here might be for RK to take some time away from the articles toward which he has a strong emotional or personal attachment, the defense of which seem to be causing him to lash out at times. RK probably means well, but could be having trouble maintaining an objective distance from certain issues.
