The FBI report doesn't get to me. FBI agents are forever writing stupid crap like that about "possible subversives"--meaning people they don' t like.

The comment from "Chicken John" DOES get me. Gygax was many things but saying he "saved more lives than penicillin" is a real stretch. All he did was make an RPG that nerdy, withdrawn teenagers loved.

And who is Chicken John? Why, of course the Nerd-O-Pedia has a dissertation on him. It used to be 28k bytes long--because his lunatic friends in the SF art scene were expanding it over and over.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_John

(Don't look at the Gygax article. It will make you want to kill yourself. The authors of it tend to be Wikipedia administrators, making said article "untouchable". He receives treatment more suited for a president or a king.)

You wanna see Wikipedia failing its remit and mishandling a BLP horribly? Here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C._Christine_Fair


I had a nice discussion with Badmachine about it:

Ha ha that's rich. She's actually got a WP bio. I did not know that. Created by Jerem43 in 2010 (because "she is the published author of several cookbooks", bullshit....more likely he was PAID to do it) and fought over by random-looking idiots since then. Including Fair herself. Look at the talkpage.

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... =354396049
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... =733343993

> notice FCYTravis/nbsbaranof and Doug Weller and the suspicious socks there. the COI notice is gone, no mention of this woman's meltdowns. she is obviously deranged.

And WP has deranged people to make her sound like a "hero". They appear to be failing--most of the article is furious ranting about her love for drone strikes. Wikipedia can NOT handle controversial politics of ANY kind.

The history of this short and much-ignored BLP is deeply embarrassing and full of profound stupidity and madness. SJW bleating, critics bleating, sockpuppetry and SPAs, Fair herself trying to self-glorify, unexplained rev-deletions, administrators fighting with other administrators, you name it.....

This article was created in 2008
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhonda_Roland_Shearer

by this account, who certainly looks like Shearer or a friend
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:C ... erievalley

It sat for NINE YEARS and was fooled with by a succession of editors, including several administrators. No one said a word about the COI, except for one complaint on the talkpage.

Until yesterday, when Megalibrarygirl started pushing for deletion.
Quote:
Susan Barnum (born February 5, 1975) is a Public Services Librarian who lives in El Paso, Texas. She's a good researcher who likes uncovering new facts. She enjoys teaching others how to use the library and find useful information both in print and digitally. Her main interests in Wikipedia are in the areas of atheism, expanding articles about women, art, El Paso,Texas history, library history and anything else that catches her fancy. She is also interested in ensuring that information is properly sourced and relevant to articles in Wikipedia. She really enjoys expanding articles that used to be stubs. She speaks English and tiny bit of Spanish. She also really likes to garden and enjoys the fine cuisine of french fries.

And she knows damn well Wikipedia is short on biographies of prominent women. And yet here she is; trying to delete one. The fact that Shearer was married to Stephen Jay Gould, a Wikipedia science hero, doesn't seem to matter. Repeated media mentions of her in association with her late husband don't matter. COI COI COI.

Ms. Barnum will make a wonderful insider. Then the WMF will hire her.

Saw yet-another stupid post on Reddit's r/TIL taken from a Wikipedia article.
Couldn't help it, so posted a long item about Vegaswikian.

From a Facebook discussion about a "Trump Tour" of NYC. Could not resist adding something about Wikipedia's non-handling of Fortuny.

Primary contributor:

Milner should ask for a refund, this is not very good COI work. Also, I wonder if Lsolov has some relation to Breitbart CEO Larry Solov.

Handed out on a platter by Wikipediocracy, but got almost no attention.

Peter Daou is both crap AND has that paid stink.
And was an unused 22-byte stub for eight years.....until YESTERDAY.

You can thank ResultingConstant, for it, and for the also-crap article about Daou's website Verrit. ResultingC showed up on WP a few months before the 2016 election and did a lot of massaging of articles relating to Hillary Clinton.

Not mentioned: Daou's apparently boundless incompetence, aside from his deep love for Hillary. (Why do powerful people pay him to do things? He's a professional sycophant. Politicians should know better than to give high-ranking jobs to their sycophants. In this case I wonder if the sycophant was a major reason for Clinton's loss.)

Wikipedia also fails to mention Daou's wacko family in any detail, which includes the notorious writer Erica Jong.

As I said, Daou's WP bio was basically written yesterday---one day after this uncomplementary article appeared (which was given as a reference, lol).
Interesting timing.

Speaking of Daou, I keep seeing things like this on Facebook and Twitter......and people still wonder why Madame Clinton is not "widely loved".

Yes, Parkhomenko has a WP article. Written for him in 2013 by an SPA.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam_Parkhomenko
And edited by himself.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:C ... arkhomenko

Dozens of Hillary fans have gotten WP bios in the last few years. Most of them are complete nobodies. And they are "protected".

Used the ihatewikipedia Twitter to send this post to the Clintons and their wonderful supporters. And will be AMAZED if anyone responds.

lol he's a cop wannabe

https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyl ... story.html

For some balance: after years of constant editwarring:

Donald Trump is now 315k bytes long with 625 references. And still growing. 23,311 edits to date.
Barack Obama is 329k bytes with 486 references. 26,319 edits.
George W. Bush is slowly shrinking; 294k bytes with 459 references. Still the "king" with 46,402 edits.
Sarah Palin is also slowly shrinking after 10 years of the most brutal editwarring imaginable; now 184k bytes with 351 references. 14,773 edits.

Hillary: 293k bytes, 571 references, carefully watched by numerous administrators. 15,487 edits.

The longest biography is currently Eric Walter Elst. 354k bytes, THREE references. A gigantic list of the asteroids he's discovered and almost nothing else.

And meanwhile, Jesus is only 198k bytes with 441 references.

Wikipedia cannot handle contentious political subjects. Period. If they were well-run they would ban all BLPs and heavily moderate any political content. That will never happen; it's fun to fight over bullshit like "Cultural depictions of Sarah Palin".

(You wanna see real autism? Look at Long pages. This is the longest article on English Wikipedia at present; 825k bytes, entirely the work of one fool. "Long pages" is a museum of autism.)
