Re: Reddit goes on a "banwave".....

True_WikiInAction was started by a long-term troll, he is erratic. WiA was hit with an avalanche of child porn or pseudo-porn and other utterly outrageous posts by throwaways, and it having no moderation was intolerable. TrueWIA actually has an active moderator and he is actually deleting some posts...

Re: Reddit goes on a "banwave".....

The Reddit system actually works. Any Redditor with enough karma (not much) can start a subreddit, and they are automatically senior mod. They may appoint and remove subordinate mods. The mods own a subreddit, i.e. the name, not the topic. So, don't like how they manage the sub? -- any redditor can ...

Re: The immortal MickMacNee

What really? Their wall of text hostile rants don't sound similar to me at all! Okay maybe a little. Well okay a lot. Maybe they are twins or something. Because it's hard to imagine that the One and Only True Critic who counsels others against Wikipedia addiction is himself a lifelong addict who's ...

Re: The immortal MickMacNee

There is a claim posted to Reddit that cites Katie on WPO, that MickMacNee is CrowsNest (here) or u/JackThe Jiller (Reddit). The Katie post. Katie is a maximally unreliable source, and the throwaway account posting this on Reddit appears to me to be a Smith brother impersonating me. Ond Tvilling tos...

The joke of the Cabal Not posted by Crow, but he comments, leading to interesting stuff. I also commented. Iridescent rails against "List Defined References" Ir...

Re: CrowsNest on Reddit

Guy Macon trolling people about the time he faked having had a heart attack just to avoid a crushing defeat at RfA Guy Macon supposedly had a heart attack on 3 March, serious enough to require immediate hospitalization and a 9 day spell in intensive care. If I hadn't told you the date, ask yourself...

Re: CrowsNest on Reddit

Daily Mail hating Guy Chapman (JzG) realizes he's about to lose an RfC, so he blocks the filer and wipes every other participants view from the record. That's how you win at Wikipedia, just pure and simple naked corruption and abuse of power. You dare someone to stop you, and rely on the fact nobod...

Re: Nathan Larson/Tisane/Leucosticte etc. thread

Given that he has long been threatened with violence, which he has ignored, not likely he took it down from a threat. He may have been requested to take it down, he might have decided it was an error. I see that Larson is still editing BoyWiki. He is a dedicated extreme libertarian troll. For years,...
