Re: Paid Editing on WP is permissible

I keep seeing this crap in WP content about audiophile companies. Sucker bet: DCsounds is almost certainly an employee of Acoustic Sounds , one of those disgusting "audiophile puristic" record pressing companies. Did nothing on Wikipedia but pump Acoustic Sounds and anything else to do with owner Ch...

Re: Anti-China Wikipedian is Former Atlantic Council Senior Vice President and Latin America Regime Change

Is the actual evidence laid out anywhere? Hell no, this is basically at the "disgruntled mumbling" stage. Although the archive of Amigao's talkpage is somewhat "compelling" if you want to accuse him of POV pushing. It's full of those fucking smug "please refrain from" messages from admins and patro...

Re: Anti-China Wikipedian is Former Atlantic Council Senior Vice President and Latin America Regime Change

this was actually an interesting find. I had never heard of the "Chollima Report", and if you don't read it carefully, it often looks like some kind of "astroturf" blog run by the CCP, possibly with support from North Korea. But claims not to be. Very weird. A few of the posts read like pro-DPRK pro...

Re: How to "dox" Wikipedia insiders/fanatics

Thanks for posting this, it's good general information. Although I might add a couple of notes. https://honorsandawards.iu.edu/awards/honoree/2463.html made something of himself. Currently a broken link--need to try it again later. 7a. If in the United states, film all you can about the attendees to...

Re: i'LL BE DAMNED -- an honest report about the Neelix scandal

Part 2 His fixation on "human trafficking" Purdy created a poor-quality article for Hiram College administrator and human-trafficking activist Roger Cram. Which was deleted in April 2014, after Purdy and crackpot Article Rescue Squadron members such as Green Cardamom (T-C-F-R-B) tried to "save" it. ...

Re: i'LL BE DAMNED -- an honest report about the Neelix scandal

being Mormon or whatever, that sounds probably correct to me (even if it is misguided) Salvation Army, in fact. I might as well repost the book article. Part 1: David Purdy Neelix (T-C-F-R-B) has become infamous as a thoughtless, robotic "gnome". At first he wrote almost no content, offered no adde...

Re: Thoughts on Reddit?

This relates to the Ukraine war. My partner is involved with the "NAFO" thing on Twitter which raises money for Ukraine causes and (tries to anyway) fight off the endless Russian online propaganda war. I pointed out to her that subreddits like r/russia, r/moscow, etc. are controlled by, and saturate...

Re: Crap or questionable articles

not my "get", but worth reposting: From an article on whistlers: "Whistlers were named by British World War I radio operators. On the wide-band spectrogram, the observed characteristic of a whistler is that the tone rapidly descends over a few seconds—almost like a person whistling or an incoming gr...
