Entirely the work of WMF employee Leon Ziemba, aka checkuser "MusikAnimal".
From the book wiki:
Quote:
Ziemba is one of Wikipedia's most powerful insiders and one of its least known. Mostly a vandalism patroller, he claims to have edited since 2003-04, has used at least two declared sockpuppet accounts (called "Fiend666x" and "Fiend666"), became an admin in April 2014 and checkuser in September 2016, and was hired by the WMF in 2016. All of his primary account's edit history prior to 6 July 2011 was destroyed.

Back in 2012 it appears Dr. Blofeld splerged the 'pedia with articles for all of these separate buildings at Alcatraz....

Main Cellhouse
Dining Hall
Hospital
Library
Warden's House
Building 64
Former Military Chapel (Bachelor Quarters)
Social Hall
Morgue
New Industries Building
Model Industries Building
Lighthouse
Power House
Water Tower

Spot checking reveals they are ridiculously short, some are just a couple of paragraphs, others have just one section, and none have seen significant expansion since Blofeld created them.

Amazing the damage one bored guy can do.

Sad thing is, you just know that at the time, he probably still really believed all would eventually become wondrous Features Articles in their own right, justifying all the linking and assorted duplication needed to have this many separate articles. But no, and now he has to resort to sucking wikidick for cash.

Even more hilarious, imagine his face when The Rambling Dickhead rolls them all into a list and gets another Featured List to his name.

What a pair of oddballs, strange even in that ecosystem of strangeness. Both of course absolutely insist they are guided only by what the reader needs of wants. Sure. :roll:

Get used to that--dead typical Blofeld shit. He's also done a load of obviously paid editing. And will never admit it.

If this "magical reference thing" was really good at documenting history, I expect they would have something better than the article about Krokodil. It was the top satirical magazine in the Soviet Union from 1922 to 1990 and thus important to Soviet history. But Wikipedia has only a brief hunk of badly-written and poorly sourced crap.

Classic example of Wiki insiders fighting with conspiracy fans (and no one winning):

Good way to figure out who the insiders/RationalWiki users and the conspiracy-freak outsiders (both cranks in their own way) are. By examining their squabbles in the history of this article.

Someone from German WP did this and it's been a joke since 2015. Drive-by edits diddle various things, leaving an incoherent text proudly untouched.

Ammunition in the form of 10,000 muskets and 150,000 cartridges was supplied to the fort, which made the Fort Alcatraz and the island most impregnable and thus leaving any plans of the Confederate soldiers of taking control of the San Francisco Bay and California State could be taken under its fold was thwarted.[1] Alcatraz was officially designated as a military prison on August 27, 1861. In March 1863, when there was a threat that the San Francisco Bay would be captured by the Confederates, the schooner, which was to carry out the operation set sail; the U.S. Navy prevented the schooner from moving out and captured the crew along with ammunition and 15 confederates who were hiding in the galleys of the ship.

What schooner? Never mind, WIKI IS MAGIC!

Just by sticking in "March 1863 Alcatraz schooner" I found that the ship in question was the J.M. Chapman and that Blofeld was probably cribbing from the National Park Service website on former island prison.

If the progressives of Wikipedia find the pollution of Hinkley so deplorable......why is the Hinkley article such a badly-written piece of crap?

Endlessly drive-by doodled since 2005. The last edit was in January--and consisted of JzG removing actual information.

(The Erin Brockovich article really isn't much better. All that editwarring in past years, and they still can't get it right.)

Go talk to Robin Ramsey over at Lobster magazine about the subject - he's been hearing from people who suffer from weird issues that they (the sufferers) perceive to be some sort of high-frequency "mental jamming" done by some sort of military or civilian government organization, possibly as tests for a weapon...and Ramsey has been getting letters from those people since the 1980s. He's also been hearing from investigators who speak to these people, and they think something is going on - Ramsey puts it all in the "possible" file.

http://www.lobster-magazine.co.uk/onlin ... b30-06.htm <=== article "Neural Manipulation by Radar" from December 1995. It's behind a paywall.
