Re: WP:NONAZIS essay

This is clever: the “Nazi Bar Problem” (“And then [the polite Nazis] bring friends and the friends bring friends and they stop being cool and then you realize, oh shit, this is a Nazi bar now”) # One could make the "we shouldn't ban people for their beliefs argument", but that's not a position Wikip...

Re: Elon Musk calling out Wales and Wikipedia for bias: Twitter Files Investigation AfD

And yet another "twitter files" type article; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/December_15,_2022_Twitter_suspensions Notice the difference; this time around the Wikipedia hoopleheads were prepared to restrict access to the afd discussion lest they get mobbed again. Lol,...

Re: Elon Musk calling out Wales and Wikipedia for bias: Twitter Files Investigation AfD

Elon Musk calling out Wales and Wikipedia for bias: Twitter Files Investigation AfD

Most of Earth: “The MSM is biased.” Wikipedia: “Cite MSM source to confirm this claim.” 🤣🤣 Wikipedia has a non-trivial left-wing bias. @jimmy_wales, what are your thoughts? https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1600200000763756544?s=61&t=bXGWS3Dhb-kRsOH5TLoLBw In regards the [[Twitter Files Investiga...

PS: the hoopleheads are out in full-fanboy-force rooting for the impractical tesla semi
The only “impracticality” maybe Peak Lithium for the batteries. There is no substitute for oil, life as we’re living it is unsustainable.

The Nikola hydrogen fuel cell class 8 truck is more impractical.

Re: Twitter's decline

If Musk really believes in free speech, Twitter won’t decline. People were being blocked for thoughtcrime saying men can never become women, or women don’t have penises, for telling the truth.

Re: Section 230 is in trouble -- at last !

Looks like no Free Speech on Twitter: European Union threatens Elon Musk with the Digital Services Act, which prohibits “hate speech and misinformation.” Elon Musk now owns Twitter but the EU is watching carefully lest the self-styled "free speech absolutist" turn the social media site into a platfo...

Another one bites the dust: Display Name 99

He brought the Andrew Jackson article to featured status and eventually got blocked from editing it! SEMI-RETIRED Wikipedia has become a toxic mess. Wikipedia is supposed to be an accessible source of good information available to anyone, and to maintain impartiality by presenting as fact only thing...
