Extremely biased against the organization. Includes every minor detail of fearmongering (true or not) against them with very little that would be seen as good by normie liberals. Long history of ALL CAPS EDIT WARRING as well.

Authorship: https://xtools.wmcloud.org/articleinfo/ ... urei_Karta

Longhornsg, the biggest author, is a National Zionist who believes that anyone who is against the continual robbery of hundreds of billions from USA to buy ineffectual weapons used to mass murder children, is a Nazi who should be in jail for "hate speech": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Longhornsg/sandbox7

Zionazi.

Digiulio8 is the second largest editor and is the only major editor who isn't a Zionazi.

Hyperionsteel another insane Zionazi propagandist. Either an Israeli state agent or a sock of some idiot like Valjean.

Have a big fat dose of unreadable long article AND a perfect example of Wikipedia trying to practice "social justice". Badly as usual. The presence of The Anome and Andy Mabbett in the early history are dead giveaways. Not sure anyone ever reads this pile of feces.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_P ... ce_scandal

The vast bulk of which was the work of this guy. He loves boats but nowadays seems to be even more obsessed with the post office scandal. Been grinding the hell out of it for the past few months.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Jacksoncowes

And BTW, this shitty article was originally called "Horizon", after the crummy ICL-Fujitsu software system that caused the scandal. Yes kids: hundreds of UK Post Office employees had their lives ruined by bad software. Wikipedians are "experts" in this area, aren't they?

Said article was originally created by that noted high-quality nitwit Richard Symonds, who was desysopped and resigned from Wikimedia UK shortly thereafter.

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... =654039489
Even though the successful appeals were headline news, amazingly, this scandal has only become widely known in the last few days, in the wake of a television docu-drama.

It's been quite the furore, pushing the government into all manner of unprecedented announcements (in the opinion of one senior officer, seeing politicians take over from judges as the arbiters of guilt and innocence).

The article was, and arguably still is, completely useless for anyone looking for further information.

And they will need it. As the drama laid out, this has been an insanely complex. The article is curiously unhelpful both as a quick introduction for those who know nothing, and those who knew a bit but want to know more. I for example want to know more about the precise nature of the software faults, and it must be out there, because there were multiple that were described in detail in the drama.

My personal favourite is how it omits any mention of the reasons why it failed to gain traction before now, and who in the media did the necessary to get it to at least the national level before now.

Reliable sources exist.....

https://pressgazette.co.uk/news/post-of ... urnalists/

......but quite clearly, the Daily Mail being at the forefront, causes the Wikipedians quite the problem.

Indeed, such has been the Wikipedians dogged determination to declare right wing sources as untrustworthy due to their own rampant left wing bias, the only truly gold standard newspaper source they can cite for this crucial period between the computer Weekly article and the drama, is the paywalled Times.

Total speculation, but I suspect their preferred source, the Guardian, chose not to help expose this scandal, even though it has occurred mostly under right wing governments, for the following reasons....

* It was arguably had its genesis in the questionable decisions of the Tony Blair government (PFI contracts)
* It actually started to become an injustice under the Tony Blair government
* A key minister at a crucial time was actually from the centrist third party the Lib Dems, part of the rare and disastrous experiment with coalition government (the third party would supposedly be the main beneficiary of any move to "proportional" voting)
* The trade union for the victims was apparently complicit
* The victims are hard working self employed entrepreneurs, business owners, not salt of the Earth "workers"
* The huge compensation payouts have thus far come from Post Office funding, so threaten the ability of militant unions to have that money be used for ever rising wages for postal workers

Not a remotely controversial opinion in the UK.

A small shop owner, self employed contractor, or someone employed by an SME, which describes the vast majority of our working populace, are far more exposed to the true evil of a state owned corporation gone batshit, than the massed ranks of unionized workers who are directly employed by it. As this scandal showed quite well.

The Guardian are a joke. Not even remotely in touch with what matters to most British people. Anyone basing their encyclopedia on it, is inherently biased.

Thye do mention the post office mess occasionally---buried in amongst the usual whingery about Trump, climate disasters, etc. And incessant begging for donations.
https://www.theguardian.com/media/2021/ ... -mail-boss
https://www.theguardian.com/business/20 ... their-role

And it makes you wonder: why isn't Adam Crozier in a prison cell right now? He was running the Post Office during that period, and undoubtedly knew what was happening. A little fact that the WP article skips lightly around. And oh, what an amazing conicidence, Crozier later ran ITV, which just broadcast the "Mr. Bates" TV series. Which series failed to mention Crozier's involvement. In the UK corporate front office, turds float very nicely.

https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/18539 ... a-itv-boss
https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/post ... ion=global

Crozier's WP bio is becoming increasingly negative.....oh looky! MickMacNee was the largest contributor! I wonder what that's all about! Maybe someone was paying someone shock horror!

How many articles do you think Wikipedia has about My Little Pony? Well if you guessed anything under several dozen, you're wrong.

Not only is there the main article (which is over 150k bytes), there is: Amazingly, the main maintainer of these articles is supposedly a woman. I say "supposedly" because Wikipedia is so insane that it's reasonably possible that it's actually some determined neckbeard pretending to be an Asian woman.

A large amount of the articles are "good articles" supposedly. One of the episodes is even an FA, despite the fact that the first ten paragraphs are entirely unsourced. :lol: Also, it's pretty funny that it was FA'd TEN YEARS after it aired. The article contains what is possibly the funniest sentence on Wikipedia:
They deal with themes that have been considered serious and complex for a children's television series; scholars believe that they involve feminism-related themes.
There's also this Commons category. Surprised there isn't more.

Edit: The Commons uploader also uploaded "Futanari" (don't google that), which Dronebogus is also obsessed with. Almost certainly part of the same meatfarm.

Edit 2: Dronebogus was even on the talk page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Clop ... ute_legend
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_M ... rth_ponies

Lol, FINALLY AfD'd AFTER 12 YEARS. Why did someone even create this in the first place! The wiki-nerds already maintain a list of EVERY character, why not just make it a subsection? I'm sure there was some stupid "debate" from 12 years ago about it, but I honestly don't care.

also, relisted 3 times already "totally not dying"

Btw, the article's history is 42 MEGABYTES!

Meanwhile you should take a look at the UAP community and the hashtag #WikiGate since they made two livestreams against Wikipedia so far because allegedly the Guerilla Skeptics has gamed the Wikipedia system against them. The calculus and equation of the whole situation is about to change because they are clamoring for class action lawsuits and congressional investigations against Wikipedia. They have promised to keep up the pressure on Wikipedia and asked for help from Wikipedia insiders to help their campaign against Wikipedia.

The reason why I said that the whole equation is about to change is because it now presents a possibility to take Wikipedia down through relevation of serious scandals that come from the inevitable discovery process by the class action lawsuits and congressional investigations even if Jennsaurus is indeed a fake and was actually Oberranks playing sockpuppet after all. In short we can bypass Jennsaurus in terms of the goal of taking Wikipedia down regardless of her credibility.

With these being said they should be given a lot of blessing in terms of giving them neccessary materials and helps so that they can fulfill their promises against Wikipedia. Their discovery process should be encouraged to be as big as possible while since they're harboring illusions that Wikipedia can still be saved, they should be convinced that Wikipedia is a irreversibly corrupt structure that needs to go down like Theranos after all.
