Re: Crap or questionable articles

Found in South Beloit, Illinois : Screenshot_2021-04-20 South Beloit, Illinois - Wikipedia.png That looks like a good-enough "reference" to me. Difficult to find perhaps and not Googleable. Tough shit. (Yes, I know, the shriekers will shriek "it's not properly formatted!!! (then flaps arms)" Okay, s...

The article has been unsourced since Feb 2007. After 15 years, I think a deletion discussion is appropriate.
Well, 14 years.....

If anyone wants to dox Beeb, PM me and I'll feed you all the crap I've got. Good luck--he's gone to obscene lengths to hide his real identity.

it appears that the user may not have been able to communicate because they apparently use the Wikipedia Android app:

Re: More pig ignorance regarding Daily Mail

oh, man, don't bring up Rees-Mogg on a Wikipedia forum.....not only do the Wikiasses hate him intensely, they hate him incoherently. Traces of long-ago editwars on that article have completely disappeared, which I suspect to be the work of David Gerard when he still had oversight powers. The "cream"...

Re: Why did you stop editing Wikipedia?

Personally I was forced out for advocating the admins follow policy and not be held to a lower standard than editors. That was after years of being extremely high output, with over a million edits to the wikimedia projects. Stop lying. You were banned for being an annoying tit. Hundreds of high out...

Re: Why did you stop editing Wikipedia?

The last quote I am going to provide was said by an academic who has his own entry on Wikipedia: " (wikipedia.org)...Wikipedia, on the contrary, is the enshrinement of contempt for learning, knowledge and expertise. It is, for many, a diversionary hobby to which they are prepared devote a great por...

Re: Brooklyn Center MN and Daunte Wright

it's easy to explain: Wikipedia CAN NOT handle contentious political or social-unrest related topics. Inevitably they turn into editwars and screaming fits on talkpages, then blocks and other administrator abuses. 2020–2021 United States racial unrest is a gold-plated example -- should one be needed...

Re: I just got an indefinite block in retaliation for archiving an admin's warning on my talk page

How common is it for Wikipedia administrators to put an indefinite block on a user in response to the user not directly acknowledging the administrator's warning in their talk page? Depends on the admin. Some of them are called "Evil Patrollers" for a reason. They literally masturbate by blocking p...

1. Have a query that pops into your brain
2. Find a relevant Wikipedia page
3. Either/or:
No no no.....it goes more like:
