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

Wales the supercilious hypocrite and bigot regarding free speech, unpopular opinions, feudalism, censorship etc. Raquel nailed him on his talk page and got blocked for it: Comment: First they came for the Nazis... How about Zionists next? Did God really give them that land or the United Nations, are...

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

Kiwi Farms, a website that made fun of people, harassed, swatted, hacked their Ubereats password and ordered food to their house and doxed them — three allegedly committed suicide over it — got essentially blacklisted and is offline because trolls on the website threatened someone who was giving hor...

Re: Should Humanity go extinct?

what do you want me to deliver then? I'm the LAST person who would argue with you about the miserable, petty truth of humanity. Exploiting resources until exhausted, organized religion, political madness, corruption, greed, stupidity. We nailed every item on the list already. Also I think that "Rar...

Re: Wikipedia Administrator Boing! said Zebedee teams up with Wikipediocracy to threaten OberRanks

I have to call this one for the Wikipedians. We're all ready to assume the worst of them and you're right Wexter that the site is set up for endless PVP action.

Tamzin outed MJPANTS, on his own essay’s Talk Page, with this edit: @HappyMcSlappy: I'm all for allowing a clean start, but having the same argument with me twice, a year apart, on two different accounts, is kind of pushing the "clean" part, don't you think? -- Tamzin[cetacean needed] (she|they|xe) ...

Re: WP:NONAZIS essay

Another honeypot boomerang trap: For the sake of posterity, this user has continued to make disruptive edits in wikitalk space which may run afoul of policy, e.g. "American Liberalism since the Trump era has become just as vengeful and warring as neo-Nazi or other genocidal groups" at WP:No Nazis . ...

Suddenly a lot of controversy on the Talk Page.
