Re: Blog post: I get 'Fun Emails'.....

Reminder: someone called "Danielaword" was doing very similar ranting on Wikipedia Review back in 2010-2011. http://wikipediareview.com/index.php?showtopic=29166 And there is evidence of even earlier craziness focussing on Antandrus, could be the same freak: http://wikipediareview.com/index.php?show...

Re: Wikipedia has a black people problem

Compiling stuff like that is dangerous: he was globally banned on 17 Nov 2020. *I* have no problems whatsoever with Salsman. Wikipedia critics, even the extra-annoying ones, have every right to take shots at those miserable Wikinerds. He did them a favor. (PS I gave up trying to keep track of his s...

Re: Wikipedia Administrator hacks an editors email account, to prove he is a person you can trust

EX-administrator, I might note. His squabbles with Michael Hardy and Maxim (who I STILL think is a sockpuppet belonging to David Gerard) and successful arbitration against Fred Bauder must surely have made him enemies. Although he's probably got enough support to go back and get his power back if he...
