Re: Armenian Genocide

But isn't there a chance that any of the people pushing the Turkish line on the Armenian Genocide on Wikipedia are agents of the Turkish government (paid or unpaid)? I didn't make a note of the journalist's name and I've since forgotten it. He's not among the really high profile names, but he is ne...

Armenian Genocide

Donald Trump refusing to recognize the Armenian Genocide reminds me that the Wikipedia article on it https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armenian_Genocide has (and still does in its lead) asserted for years that the United States has recognized the genocide. When the editor C1cada attempted to correct, an...

Thoughts?

BTW I happen to like and support Katherine. Please be courteous and don't use my post to slag her off. Thanks.

Re: John

Part of the infamous Manchester Mafia, a Wikipedia Originalist, BLP zealot, played a major role in securing the Daily Mail ban. Not a drama whore, but not afraid to get his boots dirty. <snipped> m To be honest, I'd completely forgotten he had even existed until I saw this thread. As it should be w...

Surely not addressing me? WO (who or what)?

Re: John

<snip> What is the point of digging up dirt on a retired admin, who has not really been active for over a year? If he's currently offensive somewhere, point to it. As to his opinion in retirement, he was one of many who might have made a difference, by standing for the development of coherent commu...

John

I see the admin John has retired. Anyone able to dish the dirt on him? I had a real run-in with him back in 2011. He was a school teacher of Chemistry at an Edinburgh school who ran a vanity web site featuring his photographs, which were uniformally unexceptionable. He got addicted to Wikipedia and ...

Re: ArbCom election 2018

Results are out. Screenshot_20181214_103800.png Drmies and DGG failed to get seats, and Fred placed last. Surprisingly Joe Roe got a seat, unsurprisingly some of the usual culprits also got seats. Glad Drmies didn't make it. I thought AGK had retired from Wikipedia. He's mental. Our website has now...

Re: Bbb23

Bbb23 is wise to keep his identity a secret. For sure, he will have identified to the WMF at some point though. Yes, when he got checkuser (or whatever the jargon is, can't be bothered to look it up; that thing when they can can access an editor's IP) permission. But I think that's a somewhat perfu...
