Re: "Mad" Mike Hughes and the Wiki-ghouls

Thanks for introducing me to Bill Hicks. I was almost totally media-isolated at that point. You are welcome. Hicks pretty much smoked himself to death in the span of a decade - his body was susceptible to cancer....some people seem to be able to smoke for decades without getting lung cancer, other ...

Re: "Mad" Mike Hughes and the Wiki-ghouls

The inbed video isn't showing up so here's another one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fABx2jZZrNg You are right, there have been almost 300 edits to the WP article just today. They are using Wikipedia to mock him. Especially an astronaut fan called Kees08 . The fool didn't attach the parachute to ...

"Mad" Mike Hughes and the Wiki-ghouls

....So there was a flat-Earther rocket guy named Mike Hughes ("Mad" Mike* to his friends) and he was killed yesterday trying to test-fly a steam rocket that would have taken him 5,000 feet in the air (which is under the 10,000 foot USAF "angels" slang term - calling in "Angels 11" means the aircraf...

Re: 147.435 - The Repeater Beyond Human Comprehension

EVilgent is not a Wikitop user. That material is being copied verbatim (slightly condensed) from WPO as documentation of what is allowed there without any restraint. Any wikitop user could object, it's in user space there. Zoloft objected to "private" material being copied. But it is not really pri...

Re: Academic Jobs Wiki "Universities to Fear" page

[b....]I'm seriously amazed this "universities to fear" thing has managed to survive on Wikia. Normally something this hostile would be quickly destroyed, leaving not even an archive.org copy. Jimbo finally figured out how to "rewrite history" at least to meet HIS narrow standards of "reality".[/b]...

Re: 147.435 - The Repeater Beyond Human Comprehension

My comment above was cited by the EVilgent , who is so accustomed to sarcastic contempt that I think he imagined the above was "disdainful." It was not. I really did enjoy both the original post here, and the FCC ruling, and really am happy to see you and Eric writing more here. One person writing ...

"Wikipedia lost money adding Bitcoin" as payment method

So the two suckiest things online joined forces, and that sucked even worse! https://decrypt.co/20220/wikipedia-lost-money-by-adding-bitcoin (This website is laid out annoyingly.)

From Slate: Is Pete Buttigieg editing his own BLP?

Re: Academic Jobs Wiki "Universities to Fear" page

thanks, that's plllllenty..... None of it surprises me. Even when I was in college in the late '70s there was plenty of dysfunction in the "land of higher learning". The major state university I went to was a joke, spending fortunes on massive new buildings and facilities but hiring the scrapings o...
