Re: Wikipediocrats not understanding how Wikipedia works

One of my biggest en.wiki pet peeves is that someone decided years ago that schools are inherently notable, so Wikipedia has thousands of high schools with articles that cannot be deleted, and exist solely as vandalism magnets. They almost never attract any kind of useful edits and most of these sc...

Re: Nick (Nick Birse, chemist)

Nick is absolute menace. Now I am not saying he is himself incompetent or anything, but he is an IRC op and long term admin, from that time when saying a curse word in every sentence was fashionable. He is what I would describe as needlessly abrasive, like all the time. On Wikipedia yes, and on IRC ...

Re: 2019 editor gender survey

... serious critics might like to note there doesn't seem to be any information about whether the results are to be published, or if so, how and where. Good to see someone actually doing criticism.
