Re: New blog post on Wikipedia and Stormfront....

heh, I have known quite a few "outside" types who thought Scott was a "cool guy" and some still do today. Punks, Subgeniuses, hardcore nerds and so forth. I figured out long ago that Scott was just another Christian crap artist. Bringing him up and talking about his crazier schemes doesn't faze his...

Re: New blog post on Wikipedia and Stormfront....

After an email with Eric, I'm going to have to write an "addendum" on some of the no-goodniks I didn't mention (Christopher Fitch, Law , Jeffery Latham, LaraLove , etc.) I will stand by my statement that Don Black is " the nazi who looks like a paint store manager." Great start---you really went WA...

New blog post on Wikipedia and Stormfront....

.....the neo-N A Z I messageboard and how Wikipedia had a long-running freak-out over it and how a bunch of White Power types from Stormfront operated as Wikipedia editors back the the hot period from 2003 to 2008, and how there were people on the SF board as late as 2012 trying to get neo-N A Z I s...

Re: Ray Carney's private blog being censored by Boston University!

this obviously is the time for Carney to update his CV and start looking elsewhere. It's easy to understand why BU's management doesn't want "boat rocking". It costs $77,000 to attend that stupid institution per year. And it's just BU ..... not MIT or Harvard or UMass. Would not want any "offended ...

Ray Carney's private blog being censored by Boston University!

I wrote about Ray Carney in the blog way back in 2016; he's a film professor at Boston University, a private college in that city in Massachusetts. The TL;DR on Carney is that he is at loggerheads with the administration due to wanting to teach Film Theory his way, and the people running the film de...

"Gun Girl" Kaitlin Bennett, formerly part of Alex Jones' InfoWars and now a "co-founder"* of Liberty Hangout with her husband, is a hard-core Trump supporter and right-wing troll (she once appeared on a college campus on Halloween dressed in a "sexy Pocahontas" costume and got logically trounced by ...

Re: AmaryllisGardener and Scots Wikipedia

The kid was also on the iu.Wikipedia (proof), which is the one written in Inuktitut, a key language of the Candian Inuit people. I don't think he got too far, probably because the script is completely different from English.
