Re: Paid Editing on WP is permissible

Re: Wikipediocracy sells out another serious critic

It's not why I stopped in the first place, that was different. But it's why I only occasionally (like, once every few ...

Re: Soft-serve ice cream is TEH EBIL

I thought this was funny, even if it did come from WIRED and Steven Levy's egotistical Backchannel operation. Read it all. https://www.wired.com/story/they-hacked-mcdonalds-ice-cream-makers-started-cold-war/ For the record, soft serve ice cream machines are costly; difficult to maintain; difficult t...

Re: Why did you stop editing Wikipedia?

Stop arguing and FIND SOME MORE DIRT TO POST. About Wikipedia, not each other.

The article has been unsourced since Feb 2007. After 15 years, I think a deletion discussion is appropriate.

Re: More pig ignorance regarding Daily Mail

oh, man, don't bring up Rees-Mogg on a Wikipedia forum.....not only do the Wikiasses hate him intensely, they hate him incoherently.
