Kilobyte point of view

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Kilobyte point of view (or KBPOV) is when the discussions tend to consist of enormous amounts of text, but with no context or sometimes extremely off topic. Everyone else gets so exhausted trying to read these amounts of text that the person who writes them tends to "win" the debate, and gets his or her will through, just because they write so much, not because they have relevant arguments. In these cases, we get a kilobyte point of view.

Possibly the kilobyte user does not receive the profound impact on the article that the user wishes since other users just get tired of trying to read the discussion. If so, the kilobyte point of view actually is the loser of this behaviour.

It can be combined with the Megalomaniacal point of view.
