Recent changes patrol is a purely voluntary form of indentured servitude that many free Wikipedia editors with self esteem issues and no life all ASPIRE to and will willingly subjugate themselves to on a daily basis just to keep in the good books of Jimbo and his team of pedohand-picked Wikipedo 'A Team'. Users like Muzemike, Rodhullandemu, j.delanoy really enjoy patrollin wikipedia because jewbo gives them extra pedo banging at wikimanias, that's why they look like total crap. This in the quest for the Holy Grail of TOW: being an admin—something resembling the 'power' and control over their peers that they lack in their daily lives. In reality, however, being an op at a poorly sourced and erroneous
encyclopedia catalogue huge stinking pile of misinformation is about as much of an honour as being the towel and lube flunky on a pr0n shoot.
For that matter, RC patrol transcends TOW and is existent on many other wikis such as Wikia and Uncyclopedia (where RC patrolling is redundant since even the lamest vandal at Uncy is funnier than the contributors). While the need for it could virtually be eliminated by simple measures, the higher ups of those wikis are fucking retards and allow anyone to edit anonymously.
After the Grawp trollfest on TOW, RC patroller Urban Rose become disillusioned with "the project." Out of frustration from their general faggotry, UR made an account on ED and posted the following on her user page:
—Urban Rose, shortly before creating this article
She also attempted to start a deletion review of the ED page on TOW (which according to Wikipedia doesn't exist) just to spite them, in particular user Sceptre.
After she was banned, users finally started to question Sceptres' bullshit. As a result he had his rollback privileges and his access revoked, making him look like an even bigger asshat (if that's possible).

Per Sceptre's abuse of the rollback function, and the concerns noted above, I have revoked his access. - auburnpilot talk 00:34, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

Because he totally wasn't butthurt or anything, Sceptre then blanked both his user and talk pages, committing Wikicide. Many have tried but Urban Rose was the only one successful in ridding the internets of Sceptre and his arrogant, ham-fisted faggotry.
Successful Troll Is Successful
As a result, Urban Rose has become somewhat of an icon on ED, and she will probably go down in history as the most attractive person to successfully troll TOW.
UR is currently working to get an ED article at TOW, or at least getting ED mentioned in other relevant articles.

Sceptre is acting like an admin and closing a deletion review I've filed for Encyclopedia Dramatica

But just because a site has attacked you doesn't mean that requesting the recreation of an article on it is "disruptive". Seriously, please get over it.

You're not an admin, so you aren't allowed to close deletion reviews Encyclopædia Dramatica, a website that gained notability for its role in the Craigslist ad controversy
