Heh, he finally pissed off too many insiders.

We did not even bother to list him on the book wiki. Guess I'll have to copy this over.

I created an article using the WPO blog post as a base. Tedious and totally unrewarding--no one seems to care.

And here it is, a few days later, and I have seen NO mention of this on Wikipedia anywhere. Nothing on Meta either. He continued to do some editing and commenting/squabbling on en-WP RFAs on January 13 and 14, then quietly "took a break". One can only imagine the screaming fits happening on the admin IRC channel this week. They blew it again, and as usual, they admit nothing.

Ooohhhh! They DID notice it. And tried to squelch all discussion--because Wikipediocracy "doxed" a Wikipedian, never mind the COI.

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... oe_and_COI

And now it's been dragged to Arbcom. By two of Wikipedia's biggest hypocrites, Ritchie333 and Fram.

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... 1211304013

Looks like we're getting an official Arbcom case (if you can call any of the fucking bullshit they do "official"). Good chance Joe will lose his sysop powers. Boo hoo waahhhh. :jerkoff:

Same conclusion being reached in the WPO forum thread (after tons of blather)

How many WIkipedia adminsitrators does it take to indef Fram? Four it seems:

Fram is on the money as usual. That''s why he was indeffed just like last time.

The big joke here is that Primefac who attempted to deep six the dicsussion is himself on the Arbitration Committee."Recusal" means little as everyone knows they will have to deal with him tomorrow. He misused his power to protect a dishonest and corrupt administrator, but why? Perhaps there is something in Primefac's own history which answers that question.

Because WPO "outed" a precious little Wikipedian, and the bastards can't make it all disappear, Primefac splutters. Look at the AN squabble, it just keeps getting longer and longer and more stupid and pathetic.

And this is just funny--slightly....
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk ... ary_2024_2

Ultimately the rubber screaming monsters of WP must be fed, for they are angry that a bureaucrat was doxed and humiliated.
Someone has to be blocked. Someone has to be spanked.

I've looked at Primefac before, he did a great job of hiding identifying features. Good choice of name; search engines will cough up a commonly used prime-number generator program instead. He is unquestionably a "he" due to babbling about his membership in this frat, and editing their Wp content heavily. But it's SEEEEEKRET otherwise. You are welcome to try your luck.

The vote currently sits at 8-0 for arbitration, with Primefac abstaining.

Where are the other three arbitrators? Hell knows.

They cheerfully admit that certain items were posted on noticeboards and talkpages (usually by Fram) that were oversighted because WP:OUTING OMGOMGOMG. Finally realized there was no point in covering up their coverups. Nihonjoe is Joe Monson, he has already admitted it by apologizing for COI editing, and NO ONE is permitted to post that simple fact on Wikipedia itself. Until there are news media reports (if ever), and it ends up on a Joe Monson article, and they can't hide it anymore. But it will be editwarred and probably deleted because it's REALLY embarrassing. (If he's "lucky" he'll be stuck into the bowels of List of Wikipedia controversies, to be forgotten. Maybe.)

Wait till the media realizes that a widely used photo of Orson Scott Card, one of the most hated people in the SF business, was taken by Joe Monson. There's also this item.

Just don't expect Stephen Harrison of Salon to mention it. He's their favorite media buttboy.

I love how Primefac "took it back" and "apologized" by getting other admins to do it for him.

Like yeah let's all be totally stupid so fun and easy.
