Rather, it illustrates standards or conduct that are generally not accepted by the Wikipedia community. Some discussions are born lame; some achieve lameness; some have lameness thrust upon them.
Upon coming across a discussion that is borderline lame, some Wikipedians may be tempted to go do something useful. This is a big mistake.
Left to its own devices, the discussion might inadvertently become useful. What's the fun in that? It is essential that as many editors as possible chime in, not adding to the discussion at hand, but merely commenting how lame it is and what a big waste of time it is.
See Self-fulfilling prophecyPositive feedbackand Exponential growth. Merely stating the discussion is lame is frequently not sufficient; every opposing statement must be denied with increasingly vehement assertions of the lameness.

This is absolutely not the place for harping over someone's past editing. Be careful to avoid even the semblance of taking sides in the war.
If one version was more or less accepted afterwards, it's OK to note that, but the fact that an edit war occurred means that neither side was "in the right all along".
If you feel that an edit war was truly lame, add it!
You don't need to ask on the talk page. The lameness of it should speak for itself. Of course, editors with a more experienced eye for lameness may disagree with your claim to the "lamest," which may just result in yet another lame edit war!
