Re: Did you know? Blocked users were once unable to view Special:AbuseLog

I believe the only people who should be able to make a request to have records removed is a non-administrator whose reputation may be harmed long-term. Wikipedia should not be able to hide the data otherwise.

Re: Wikipedia are just like any other news source: change my mind

I was with you and nodding sagely throughout this until I got to the idea that the news media are nothing but propoganda. Imo they are people, people with jobs and interests which often conflict with them telling the truth. Wikipedia is particularly bad because people lie about having paid jobs edit...

Re: Kamala Harris is getting "special treatment"

Honestly its surprising katherine Maher got involved. My guess is her interest has more to due with her far left political agenda and how a scandal may look for donations than its affect on anyone article or doxxing. Harris is one of two Senators from California and used to be the San Francisco DA ...

Wikipedia are just like any other news source: change my mind

I spent a long time believing that Wikipedia was the encyclopaedia anyone could edit and a much longer time leading a doomed campaign to try to get it to stick to the principals it says it has. This culminated in an eventually banning for actual (though oddly predictive) vandalism: replacing a rando...

Re: Bishonen accused of supporting attacks on users

Please don't quote a long post and follow it with tl;dr, that is terminally disrespectful of all readers, not to mention the OP. If you didn't read it, why are you quoting it? It's already right there above your post. Thanks. And by the way, I did read your response and did not understand it. It wa...

Re: Bishonen accused of supporting attacks on users

This thread continues to attract the interest of a troll, who obviously is using it as a coatrack on which to hang more trolling. If you have any questions coming out any of that, ask. [etc., above post quoted in its entirety -- comment now added by Mod while deleting the rest of the quoted materia...

Re: Bishonen accused of supporting attacks on users

I'll consider that for a bit, taking suggestions. "[blank] complains about Bishonen"? What goes in the blank? What best serves this site? I considered it after reading your reply, and I did feel the bad vibes from it, but no. The issue, though it might not be clear from cursory inspection, is that ...

Re: Woo and anti-woo are points of view

Can't you, like, monetise content these days? You could try to SEO the things you're talking about and actually get money for them instead of posting on this forum? You obviously have a lot of thoughts but maybe try doing something that appeals to people? With your obvious spare capacity you could b...

Re: Bishonen accused of supporting attacks on users

First: you are very clearly a factionally affiliated editor based on your comments and immediate decision to assume good faith on the part of established editors but not other users. Second: the suggestion (along with deliberately antagonistic language you are attempting to downplay) was first that ...

Bishonen accused of supporting attacks on users

A discussion which just said 'please spank Mrspaceowl' https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category_talk:Food_user_templates#Many_naughty_pages Directed at me for some unspecified issues months after my last edit. I blanked this as its only possible purpose is harrassment. A message was then posted on my ...
