Re: King kong92: A failed comeback

King kong92 registered in 2006, at the age of 14, thus somewhat immature. They lasted 4 years on Wikipedia (with intermittent inactivities) until an indefinite block. Back then, in the 2000s (a.k.a. Wikipedia's Monobook years), sock puppeteering was not yet punished with indefinite blocks. Nine yea...

Re: RIPPIN' SLIPPIN' BARG-A-DING-DONG, JAMES RANDI DIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No, I take no pleasure in Randi's death, mostly because it makes more work for me. I considered him an annoyance because people who should have known better treated him like the scientist he wasn't. Frankly this is not an unusual thing in the little world of pro-science skepticism. Somehow during t...

Re: RIPPIN' SLIPPIN' BARG-A-DING-DONG, JAMES RANDI DIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, at least you are honest in playing the jerk, which fits everything I've read about you. You appear to take some pleasure in the fact that Randi has died, which I find despicable, as I would taking pleasure in the death of anyone else. No, I take no pleasure in Randi's death, mostly because it...

Re: RIPPIN' SLIPPIN' BARG-A-DING-DONG, JAMES RANDI DIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

.....And I don't see it as any part of your role to tell me whose deaths I should or shouldn't be sad about. You Wikipedians and your secret father figures Carl Sagan, James Randi, Phil Klass, other skeptoids I can't recall. The canonization of Randall James Zwinge can now begin in the Wikipedia bi...

Because he is now DEAD , his widower will probably have him cremated and the ashes blown into Uri...

Re: Reddit promotes HEROIN!

https://files.catbox.moe/5vlss7.PNG It's always been a part of Reddit's culture to push buttons, and talking nice about hard drugs is part of that. This the same site that had a subreddit called "Pics of Dead Kids", started and run by Michael Brutsch (u/Violentacrez) whom Gawker outed in 2012 . Say...

Re: What's going on at WPU now?

On the front page there hasn't been an new article since j\January 7, 2020, that's some 9 nine months but I would like think that website that's supposed to be critical of Wikipedia should have more activity than that. However there is some activity WPU's forum so I would guess that for most part t...

Re: New blog post on Wikipedia and Stormfront....

heh, I have known quite a few "outside" types who thought Scott was a "cool guy" and some still do today. Punks, Subgeniuses, hardcore nerds and so forth. I figured out long ago that Scott was just another Christian crap artist. Bringing him up and talking about his crazier schemes doesn't faze his...
