The offending article:

Edit: Something's wrong with the youtube forum code. The video's URL is:

"In the long run, volunteers are the most expensive workers you'll ever have." -Red Green

"I am a dark bouquet of neuroses..."
- Jerry Holkins, Penny Arcade

Removed the linebreak before the closing [ youtube_url] tag for ya. Also removed the unnecessary fbclid url parameter.

Nice find, thanks. And the response by Wiki-Autists will be predictable: "primary sources are unacceptable (flaps arms)"

Do a YT search for "Wikipedia errors" or "Wikipedia scandal". There really isn't much; many of them are years old and/or "joke" videos; and a few are cringey stupidity like "How To Fix Errors On Your Wikipedia Page". Ms. Yu has made NINE videos about how to "heel" WP content; OF COURSE she runs a "reputation management" firm. Predictably, almost no one watched her videos.

If you want to amuse yourself, go looking for examples of Ms. Yu socking on WP. I did a bit of casual poking around and didn't find anything obvious. Which means she might actually be good at her 'job"

Military content errors can be especially embarrassing for the Wiki-Clowns, because Military History is STILL the largest and busiest Wikiproject. And includes officious little turds like Kirill Lokshin and Roger Davies. Hope their scabby little white faces turn purple when they see this video.
