Re: The New Yorker deals with WP (hypocritically)

Believe me---the New Yorker shenanigans are nothing. A minor issue. Try going thru this category sometime. Three times bigger, nine times as pathetic.

Re: Paid Editing on WP is permissible

That weenie must be reading wikipedia sucks notice the date of his revision. Not unusual. They watch WPO for things like this too. Sheer pettiness. I can muse about the problem of Wikipedia.

Re: Paid Editing on WP is permissible

Re: Computer Zero is Wikipedia

heh......that movie came out in 1975 and things are already starting to look like it--corporations running everything, insane violence as sport (watch a UFC fight sometime) etc. And supercomputers trashing the world....
