Re: Transgender Criticism yields a non- NPOV Hissy Fit

Wikipedia's version of your "go for the jugular" is to create an entry about a person so that some anyone may later come discredit them by linking to four articles not mentioning them at all. Part of the recipe for maximum drama appears to be to redirect the entry about the controversial book to the...

Re: Wiki-Army

I wonder what the statistics would be for PTSD. (Did you just search the "user" namespace for your stats?)

Beware -- (per haps) -- the Wixycontin flush of pithy Wiki-kwikicism -- the OCD of the OED master-builders and assorted fits and misfits has been stuffed into legend ( too ) .

Re: The Percepto story

Hm, got history, Eric? You seem to have a starring role as a Wikipediot in Stephen Harrison's "ever developing" web-friction .

Re: So.....how is your "mood"?

Will more lithium really allow you to store up "good moods" ? Vigilant posted California fire maps. Having never looked at a California fire map, I was pretty amazed.

Fascinating. Some of the post-2010 accounts are also likely to be fresh starts. (I believe Tony B. is an example based on what Arb Warfare said in his RfA.)

Truthdig cancelled

Coronavirus? The election? or just a young heir wanting to get an investment back? According to a few sources, Zuade Kaufman is the daughter of philanthropists Gladys Kaufman & Donald Kaufman (a former business partner of billionaire philanthropist Eli Broad). Neither one of her parents' Wikipedia a...
