Re: Jimbo might lose or have changed his "Founder's Seat".....

Lol. Be glad McLaughlin isn't still alive, because I'd want to punch him in the mouth, the old bastard. Jimbo has NO ONE to blame for this but himself. He installed assholes and maniacs, who installed other maniacs. There was plenty of warning. Since 2010 a large proportion of them have wanted to se...

Re: Vigilant!!!

Vigilant , tarantino , Somey (a true million-to-one, Luke-in-the-Trench-Run shot) need to be named and shamed well, you've got all the book notes and that's all I have so far....they're really no different from Wikipedians. Nobodies in the "real world". Tarantino is the really creepy one. Uses TOR ...

Re: Charlottes Web vs Gorilla Warfare

Let me add some asides: you can NOT trust anything Molly says on her vanity website, or really anywhere online. She is a well-practiced liar who uses her looks to manipulate male WP insiders. With a 14-year history of driving bots, sucking up to people on IRC, and very little content work, she is NO...

Re: Paid Editing on WP is permissible

An article that was questionable, about a math professor who tried to claim "election fraud": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steven_J._Miller until a blogger noticed that his "academic career" was absurdly overblown and full of lies...... https://liorpachter.wordpress.com/2020/11/22/williams-math-pro...

Re: Crap or questionable articles

A perfect example of the idiocy of Wikipedia contribution. Found in the "Propane" article, under "History"...... Hank Hill is often credited with popularizing propane to the general American public as a reliable fuel source for many things, such as grilling. He sells propane and propane accessories ...

Re: Twitter is run by scripts and 'bots.

:lol: They would say that.....remember, everything posted on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. is being scanned by obscenely-complicated software. And it makes a LOT of stupid mistakes. Human moderators aren't involved until you raise hell.

Tedium.co deals with WP thru the "back door"

By writing a pretty-good essay about webrings, an almost-forgotten early internet system for linking to other sites. https://tedium.co/2020/11/20/webring-history/ How an R-rated network of webrings set the stage for modern-day Wikipedia It’s bizarre to think about today, but the roots of one of the ...

Re: The New Yorker deals with WP (hypocritically)

Believe me---the New Yorker shenanigans are nothing. A minor issue. Try going thru this category sometime. Three times bigger, nine times as pathetic. They simply don't have one obvious slave generating the crap. I suspect many of them either edited their own articles with sock accounts, or hired so...
