Earthy astringent banned on WPO

Post by Kumioko » Thu Jul 02, 2020 11:11 am

I just noticed Wikipediocracy has banned Earthy Astringent, apparently for their history of socking on wikipedia. This is inline with my assertions that Zoloft has made it into a mouthpiece forum for Wikipedia rather than a criticism site.

Here is a link to the article there: https://wikipediocracy.com/forum/viewto ... =8&t=11458

Well.....I wrote up Little Green Rosetta for the book wiki. SEVEN YEARS AGO. And figured Earthy was the same guy.

About time Tarateenie noticed. Idiots.

The 2013 thread that Vig started:

Ah, the "good old days", when Wikipediocracy regularly uncovered Wiki scandals and ran with them. Those days are over.

From the book wiki
Little green rosetta, a sock of Fasttimes68, both accounts run by Mike Ross Forman. First picked up by Wikipediocracy after LGR tag teamed with Qworty, a revenge account run by Robert Clark Young.

Fastimes68, his original account, had a long history with Stephanie Adams. Adams was apparently paying editors to massage the article about her. FT68 wanted the article cut down or deleted. See his nomination for deletion here [1]. FT68 took the whole thing to the point of obsession, including at least one offsite attack. Having refused to back down, Arbcom banned him.

Not for socking they don't care about that.

I don't know. Tarantino's comments sure indicate that was the reason. All I know is that they have banned or pushed out nearly all the real critics. Now the majority of the comments come from poetlister, vigilant and admins and acolytes of Wikipedia.

He's "quit and unquit" WPO at least three times by my casual count. Might be more I don't know of. (He's a "bit erratic". Lol. Sorta like Adolf Hitler in the last week of April 1945?)
