Re: Victim lists

That's going to close with the status quo. I shouldn't be surprised by how confusingly the "support" and "oppose" options were written.

Thanks for the link, Crows Nest.

Re: Victim lists

Apparently not satisfied with the chaos caused by having a "case by case" approach to infoboxes, the Wikipedians are voting overwhelmingly to ratify the same approach to the ever present issue of what to do what someone adds/removes/rearranges a list of victims in a Wikipedia article. m)#...

Re: Daniel Brandt helping the Wikipedians Do No Harm

Remember that when WO started in 2012, Somey openly offered that his real name is James Somers, he lives in Omaha, and is a retired US government employee. Also that he followed the DC punk-rock scene in the 1980s. Never could verify any of that. If he was a gubbmint employee, his criticism of Russ...

Re: Tortuous justifications for incivility

Then some of them seem to think they are making the world better and if they don't do it then nobody will. Mark Bernstein seemed to indicate that for a bit. Doomed as Sisyphus.

Yes. Your earlier post nails it that this one can't be covered-up quietly. They're going to have to nail Cross to the cross sooner or later.

Re: Chelsea Manning

I'm not sure I agree with you on this Crowsnest. I do not know what B. Manning was like before spending years in solitary, but I have watched C. Manning interviewed on Democracy Now! after. My impression was of a troubled individual who would have their work cut out for them readjusting to life out...

Re: Wikipedia and the mentally ill

Hello again! I figured you'd eventually land in this topic, Flipflop. If you have access to Science Direct there's this: m and this: m The free summaries don't go into much detail.

Wow.
