Kenneth Law is now facing first degree murder charges (up from second degree)
reported yesterday

https://www.cp24.com/news/kenneth-law-n ... -1.6743040

So it's an alleged serial killer trial now.

In spite of the media reports, and threads here and on WPO, there is still no article about Mr. Law.....the talk page for the SS article continues to attract annoying busybodies. This month we get more wikilawyering from Freedom4U. Christ what an asshole. A clear "spectrumite" who can't stop obsessing over Korean disasters.....and Sanctioned Suicide. No freedom in there.

With the exception of refusing to mention Law, patrollers on the Wikipedia article stopped whitewashing the site and its leaders months ago.

Especially in the last few months. That includes Freedom4U, who is actually keeping whitewashers out at this point. This thread title is getting outdated, but might just use it regardless to keep from having multiple threads.

It still represents a major failure of WP "governance" and content quality. We can read about Ken Law's activities everywhere...except on Wikimedia sites.

The Canadian poison-by-post killer allegedly claimed to be a retired New York doctor under the name ‘Greenberg’ and interacted with members of a suicide forum

The National Crime Agency (NCA), which is investigating Law in the UK, is now probing whether he was posing as Greenberg to shepherd vulnerable people to his poison business.

Relatives of those who took a substance sent to them by the Canadian chef reported loved ones had been approached by a mysterious character known as “Greenberg” before their deaths.

Greenberg had created an account on a suicide forum ― claiming to be a retired New York medical examiner ― and repeatedly spread the name of Law’s website among members.

The Times has established that Greenberg supplied the name of Law’s website to at least four people on the suicide forum and two of those later died.

The forum and its social media manager claim they are unable to perform basic server server tasks to verify info about the 'Greenberg' account on their own forum. Given their response to everything up until now about founders and recent domain registrants was "delete/hide fucking everything", wonder if they are taking the same approach to Greenberg.
