This should only happen as a very last resort. The editor is being blatantly racist/sexist/abusive or they continue to be racist/sexist/abusive after attempts at reasoning with the editor. You should think, then re-think, then think one more time before doing this. It’d also help to get another moderator’s opinion (esp a moderator who you may not talk to that often as they won’t be tempted to just agree with you because you’re friends).
Once you de-editor someone, make sure to let everyone know why you did it (in the de-editor threads [mods] [editors]). Almost any editor who has been de-editored has the opportunity to be re-editored.
Note: make sure to post the NEW de-editor thread in the OLD one in case these links don’t get updated
