Re: Paid Editing on WP is permissible

And now, for a small prophecy. I predict that you will never see a mention of this story in the Sergey Brin article. Because he is a co-founder of Google and Wikipedia sucks up to Google on an "unofficial yet pervasive" basis. Have a nice day. 22:54, 5 January 2014 Mark Arsten talk contribs configu...

Re: Tamzin RfA

if you find yourself spending more time talking about the people who write wikipedia than being one of those people, remember that you can fix that today: then unblock me you retarded skank. Hah. Did the maniac ask for desysop and change her mind already? I did not even bother to check. Anyway, do ...

Re: Tamzin RfA

Yesterday Tamzin changed her userpage to include the following: i used to be a very active administrator here. eventually i got disillusioned by the way we treat one another in the shitty backrooms where meta-level decisions are made.

Re: Tamzin RfA

well if he was born in 1999 then his parents were likely Generation X and less susceptible to social contagion. my guess is that he identified as a woman but when he died his parents used his birth name for the services and/or plot and/or tombstone... just like the meme. You will never be a real wom...

Tarantino posted the GoFundMe and whoever that is looks like it's safe to assume they weren't murdered. its either a tranny or drug abuser or both. Interestingly t...

Re: Wikipedia claims 8% of Brazil is gay based on bunk study from 2009

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_LGBTQ%2B_Community_in_Brazil Wow, this is one of worst articles I have seen on Wikipedia. At first, it looks undersourced, but it's actually worse than that. The "sources" are just republished versions of the same study. The study is very obscure outside of pop sci...
