Re: Paid Editing on WP is permissible

Maybe paid, but certainly COI: Andrewsmclain is probably writing for Eugene Jarecki who pays for a billboard in New York City that accuses the President of murder. :roll:

Re: Articles Wikipedia should have--but doesn't.

Anyone wanna take a stab at why this article disappeared? The hoax (which was a complicated one and many journalists fell for it) dates from 2009, the only two captures were taken in 2016. There is NO RFA and no speedy request and no explanation. Or anything. But it's STILL the top result if you go...

Go donate a few bucks if you haven't already. Most of us use it several times a day, and I think it's reasonable that they ask for...

Re: Articles Wikipedia should have--but doesn't.

I don't think he deserves a BLP but because the mob hates him, he is likely to get one. Wikipedia tends to side with the left on these things, iirc. nuff said. But I'm willing to bet that if it does happen, McCloskey will sue the WMF. And then said article will "magically disappear". Sort of like t...

Re: Articles Wikipedia should have--but doesn't.

A beautiful home. I can see why the McCloskeys wanted to protect it, but i would suggest to them that they abandon it and flee. The Anonymous mob never forgives, never forgets, and is to be expected. Just curious, do you think Mark McCloskey should have a BLP at this point? I'm starting to wonder i...

Re: Crap or questionable articles

The Dry tree (or Solitary tree) is a legendary tree. The first recording about it was done by Marco Polo, somewhere in the wastelands of northern Persia. According to Polo, it was the only tree within hundreds of kilometres of desert. The legend said that the Dry Tree marked the exact spot of the g...
