WikiWhat talks to T. J. Miller

Postby ericbarbour » Fri Sep 08, 2017 1:02 pm

Actually a funny video. WikiWhat the "wikipediatrician" aka Josh Gondelman, one of the very few Facebook video bloggers who is mostly concerned with Wikipedia, invites the comedian on his show. And they proceed to mess with Miller's Wikipedia bio, inserting utter nonsense.

So far the only other mention of this was by Tarantino.

Oops, it later ran on Esquire's website

Today WikiWhat posted another interview, this time with Game Of Thrones actor John Bradley. And they mess with his WP bio.

Seriously though.....isn't this a form of "vandalism"? It's obvious that Mrazzle is Gondelman's account. He's only been doing this for a couple of weeks. Will he end up being dragged off to AN/I and thence to SPA, because "paid COI editing blah blah and YOU MUST BE HUMILIATED"?

Gondelman already had to fight off an idiot deletionist patroller called "Dammitkevin":

Easy to see that Dammitkevin will be headed for great power on Wikipedia in the future.

Weirdly enough, Gondelman has a WP bio. Mostly written by that little shit Everymorning. I have to wonder if Gondelman paid him.

Every fiber of my being is screaming "paid."

Countdown to Mrazzles' first AN/I? If he keeps this up, the moment his next episode is up.

He interviewed Lawrence Gilliard Jr, how can we tell?
because
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... =800854302

Also interviewed Kate Upton
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... =801915586

It was (finally) the subject of a squabble on the COI Noticeboard on 23 September. And the Asshole God Jytdog showed up and screamed at them "WP:OUTING" and made them take Gondelman off their "Wikipedians with articles" list.

Then BrillLyle (who is obviously an experienced editor and Twinkle user) dragged the dog off to the "Edit warring" subboard, and this charming exchange has been going on the last couple of days:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia ... esult:_.29
This is pretty clear here. Jytdog is conducting a personal vendetta against Wiki What? based on one article from a fringe industry publication that he seems to think says that Esquire magazine is not a notable source and that this is some sort of Machiavellian scheme with a harmful agenda to Wikipedia. It's not. It's actually just a funny comedic Wikipedia positive series. -- BrillLyle (talk) 23:29, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

"Thanks for your notes. We are already talking on the talk page. Your claims about harassment are dead wrong; I am following the additions of Wiki What to WP. If you are doing them, then I am going to see those edits and react to them. It is not about you. I already wrote that at the article talk page. Jytdog (talk) 23:08, 1 October 2017 (UTC)"

No. You don't get the right to say that this is just isolated to the Talk page of one article. You are taking a personal agenda and conducting an online campaign against Wiki What? It's not okay. Do not try to manage my response or my concerns. It is patronizing behavior, and I know your pattern of filibustering edits and cowing them -- turning legitimate concerns over unconstructive editing so that it pushes back negatively on the person bringing up the violation of conduct which you display. This is unacceptable behavior. BrillLyle (talk) 23:33, 1 October 2017 (UTC)
Also, I know you must derive some sort of pleasure or satisfaction in doing this. It is harassment and your behavior is attacking, aggressive, and nasty. I am doing nothing wrong here. You are. BrillLyle (talk) 23:33, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

I am sorry you are taking this so personally and reading such negative things in. There is medical content I really wanted to get to today, and this refspam stuff is a distraction. Not joyful. Jytdog (talk) 23:39, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

I could have told her this would happen. Should be obvious: Jytdog is being protected by insiders, and is now moving outside his usual quack-medicine area and attacking people he thinks are "COI editing", whether they actually are or not. In this case it's not COI, it's a videoblogger who interviews celebs and then fixes their WP content. Obviously Jytdog is getting protection similar to Mathsci before--most of it is silent and off-wiki. I HAVE to wonder if he's getting "extra-Mafia protection" from WMF trustee Dr. Heilman and company.

Wikipedia is a magical land of hypocrisy and madness.
