Paranoia as a UI feature

[ #27733 ]
Dear Log,

«Let's not forget other, less visible techniques, properly electronic, such as monitoring a contributor's input window during the process of typing, blocking the contribution with pretended notices of an 'edit conflict', outright prevention of a given IP number from saving a new edit, and the best of these cyberStasi techniques: toggling the title of edit buttons to confuse a contributor wanting to make an edit. An age of pure electronic fascism has descended, and Wikipedia is at its forefront.»

Crazy much?

Also, "fascism" really isn't a technical term for "they don't like me".
