Re: How Doniago got a perfectly productive editor expelled, for no good reason at all.

In fairness, wbm did -- indirectly mind you -- call into question the utility of the "we are the police" block, but as I recall it was Black Kite who told him it was neither here nor there whether the block was in fact worth making. Why can't Template:Infobox film be coded to ignore (and not display...

Re: Brooklyn Center MN and Daunte Wright

Over and over people try to make it look like a violent police state I see all reference to the former city manager disappeared without a trace.

Re: What's going on at WPU now?
