Re: Freenode, the WMF's favorite IRC system, is sold off

Some of Freenode's longtime geek users are REALLY pissed now: https://www.devever.net/~hl/freenode_suicide And some of them won't give it up: http://techrights.org/2021/06/04/irc-control/ I would mutter something about nerd-libertarians but why bother--one common "feature" of all IRC networks in rec...

Re: Hemiauchenia was asked if he is a member of Wikipediocracy for the right reasons. His answer showed the truth.

Well, not quite. He exercised his Wikipedia Safe Space rights. Like a little bitch. Losing the argument? Squawk about your ADHD issues or your gender issues or your "outing" issues. The Wikipedia scheme for ad-hominem abuse of your critics. You would think Vigilant would see it for what it is, and ...

Re: Ming the Mong strikes again, US politics edition

link please? Ah, here it is. Another bitchfest about you, as usual. Just another dose of handwringing from Wikipedia stans. https://wikipediocracy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=11997 I take it "Hemiauchenia" is an administrator you've battled with? Sure looks like someone who obsesses over your edi...

Re: Wikipedia is still filthy rich

I personally know someone who used to do that. A woman married to a relative of mine. Until I convinced her not to. Then on facebook she contacted me with a link to Wikipedia's donation drive and weather she should donate or not. I had told her about my experiences on Wikipedia. But when she sent m...

Re: When is a pedophile not a pedophile? When he's got a profile on Wikipedia!

Guy Macon is going to get himself killed. If not by having a heart attack when a journalist inevitably doorsteps him and asks him what the fuck he thinks he is playing at, then when someone actually pays someone good money to shoot the bastard. It would be worth it, if you're one of the people who ...

Re: MelanieN is probably a child abuser

well, is that account yours or not? If you're gonna do this, free advice: work on a few dozen random unrelated articles before plunging into a content area that someone will object to. The "SPA" label is easy to slap on but also not difficult to avoid. And then, don't come here to rage about Melanie...
