Fanatical audiophile; fanatical fan of The Absolute Sound; or fanatical fan who was paid by The Absolute Sound and/or Oswald's Mill Audio to venerate them (badly) on Wikipedia?

Re: ArbCom puts the task fo deleting people's private date from their internal records, in the hands of Beeblebrox.

Re: Crap or questionable articles

Someone reminded me about the ugly and berserk editwar that produced Sydney Hilton Hotel bombing . Ambi, nigh-legendary crank and early arbitrator, fought with Aberglas over the claim that the bombing was the work of the ASIO. Which makes anything the CIA did look milquetoast. Thus: some people are ...
