This question is prompted by What's going on with the Russian etymology questions?
In this particular case, most of his questions are quite universally negatively voted. Though this is the first time I have someone create so many ids to bypass automatic blocks, I guesstimate there are easily over a hundred subzero-voted questions.

Etymology of specific words — Etymology questions belong here when they are about systemic issues. This could involve sound system changes, or about languages which have borrowed systemically from another language, or on grammatical morphology. But non-systemic arbitrary borrowings or meaning changes don't belong here.

"Questions seeking help with identification of or translation of specific samples of text are off-topic."
Questions seeking help with identification of or translation of specific samples of text, and question about the etymology of specific words are off-topic.
Please let me know your thoughts on the matter.
