# Negligent or dickish review of suggested edits

How much negligence and/or dickishness has a high-rep user to demonstrate to get denial of appropriate review privilege (at least temporary)? Or to became admonished?

I hope this site isn’t Wikipedia where it’s virtually impossible to strip a privilege from a user, even if abuses are as regular as sunrise.

Far be it from me to interrupt your little rant, but have you done anything to attempt to bring such "negligence and/or dickishness" to the attention of those with the ability to (temporarily) ban users from the review queue? –  Arthur Fischer Apr 22 at 18:40
@Arthur Fischer: Ī deemed unwise to call for a moderator’s attention prior to asking for opinions and existing practice. –  Incnis Mrsi Apr 22 at 18:51
@timmbob: Ī don’t care about downvotes. Ī’m going to reach 2,000 soon, and if some people prefer to ignore the problem and throw discussion away, then it’s their fault. Anyway, mob rule at StackExchange is, generally, more civilized than outright fascism at many other mob-ruled sites. –  Incnis Mrsi Apr 22 at 18:58
FYI, everyone is able to see the edits you suggested here. –  Najib Idrissi Apr 22 at 19:04
With $N$ being negligence, and $D$ dickishness, long-term experience has shown that a suspension iff $3.2 N + 11 D \ge 100$ is recommended. Given that excellent suggested edits such as replacing \cos with cos were rejected, based on this formula, someone is in trouble. –  gnometorule Apr 22 at 19:17
@Najib: so? You possibly can find some problematical ones, but none of the rejected edits was remotely as radical as in David Richerby’s case, who opted to complain. And again, Ī don’t care about my edits, Ī care about pollution of the site with thoughtless button-pushing. –  Incnis Mrsi Apr 22 at 19:19
Well you seem to be particularly upset about this rejected edit, as evidenced by the comment you made. This way everyone can see what this is all about, if they are not aware that all edit suggestions are visible to everyone. –  Najib Idrissi Apr 22 at 19:21
@IncnisMrsi There are automatic review edits in order to minimize thoughtless button-pushing. –  timmbob Apr 22 at 19:22
@gnometorule: Ī removed “\” because removed LaTeX, and Ī removed LaTeX because don’t like its “^\circ” circus, preferring old plain “°”. You can run into troubles posing yourself a typography expert in front of a Wikipedia editor for many years. –  Incnis Mrsi Apr 22 at 19:24
@IncnisMrsi There are certainly better ways to highlight the problem of thoughtless button pushing (which, alas, will only become even more severe now the SE injects more gamification into the profile with the "next badge to shoot for"). The review queues are mostly worthless due to the gamification (e.g. it seems that many "reviewers" never even bother to verify claimed dupes, simply robotically voting in agreement with the first, in pursuit of the next badge). –  Bill Dubuque Apr 22 at 19:33
@Bill Dubuque: OK, Ī wait for your instructions. Ī can even do some coding job (including JavaScript development, but not limited to). –  Incnis Mrsi Apr 22 at 19:37
@BillDubuque Note that the "Steward" & "Reviewer" badges do not appear in the "Next badge to shoot for". –  timmbob Apr 22 at 20:00
@timmbob I refer to the general problem of thoughtless button pushing (as I presume the OP did when remarking on such). –  Bill Dubuque Apr 22 at 20:08
@BillDubuque ok it seems that I'm missunderstanding something in this question. Could you please explain me what is exactly meant by "general problem of thoughtless button pushing"? –  timmbob Apr 22 at 20:27
