Hilarious. Great catch.
Do you support the suggestion I'm a c**t?

Very disappointing to see you in a thread saying that. Plus the attack on User:Bishonen. Those attacks didn't seem to bother you. Doug Weller talk 11:22, 8 January 2024 (UTC)

I didn't say or support any such things (and if the C word showed up somewhere, I didn't see it). I would have thought, over the years, that you would have realised the respect I have for both you and Bish. Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 11:36, 8 January 2024 (UTC)

@Doug Weller: I've rechecked all my recent comments, and I still have no idea where (or how) I'm supposed to have called you a "c**t" or supported anyone else calling you one, or where I have attacked (or supported attacks on) User:Bishonen. Would you care to explain? Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 11:46, 8 January 2024 (UTC)

@Doug Weller: Hmm, after searching wider, I think I might know what this is about. I'll send you an email. (But I'll add here, for the public record, that I do not in any way endorse the comments that I think you refer to.) Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 13:12, 8 January 2024 (UTC)

I think Doug must be referring to your posting in a Wikipedia Sucks thread and taking no notice of the fact that people above you in the thread had been calling Doug (and me) various charming epithets. Did you think Wikipedia Sucks was the best place for your post? I mean, other criticism sites are available. Bishonen | tålk 14:48, 8 January 2024 (UTC).

I worked out that was likely the thing, and I've emailed Doug about it. I had good reasons (I believe) to post there, which I explained to him. I'll send you a copy by email too, and I'll probably remove this thread soon as it really should be an offline discussion. Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 15:04, 8 January 2024 (UTC)
Well she sure put him in his place, didn't she?

The dude made precisely ONE post on here that strayed beyond his trip down the OberRanks memory lane, but that was enough to send these bastards into all out intimidation mode.

Know your place, Boing!

If you want to comment on the big boy's forum, you have to be a big boy. Stand on your own two feet.

People who need other people's permission before speaking their mind about Wikipedia, they do indeed have their own forum.

Indeed, that is where he came from I guess, wandering into the forest. I hope he knows his way back!

Follow the string Boing! Your mitten string!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

God I get waaaay too much amusement out of this shit, I really do.

But man, do I love being proven right.

:ugeek:

Bishonen's power is clearly growing, her ambitions rising.

ArbCom has never been weaker. Jake never more eager for a full merger.

It can't be too long now.......

..says the guy who's made 1,482 edits to ANI.

He 'ain't wrong though.

Proportionally speaking, the vast majority of Wikipedia's best content was created by people who never even need to consciously consider whether or not what they are about to say or do will attract the ire of a trigger happy Admin, much less generate a report at AN/I that has enough merit to actually become a debate.

Koavf may have 2 million edits, but that really 'ain't shit when compared to the total. The entire number of edits by the tiny percentage of people who stay long enough to become a heavyweight creator.

For such insights, he is hated by Team Asshole.

They don't like facts. Never have. They are an emotional people.

Dunno if Boing will really quit, but that thread was talking about Italian WP maniac Vituzzu. And I have a little bit of old dirt to share.
It-WP suffers from the same insane behaviour by its administrative corps as en-WP. For an example, consider the 2014 "Daniele Santarelli war", documented here and here in detail. "Vituzzu", the Wikipedia Italia administrator/bureaucrat and WMF steward responsible for this madness, claimed on the 2009 version of his it-WP userpage to be "12 years old", a "dentist", and "living in an attic".
And now I have to update a book wiki article....

The fact that emotionally immature, cognitively below-average, petty, karen-esque people like Bishonen and Doug Weller are influential on Wikipedia pretty much sums up the root of Wikipedia's problems.

That is why, despite my conviction that it's truly important for the world that Wikipedia be overhauled, I had to step away for a few months.

It's unclear how to fix an organization in which low-class mediocrities like these two are not only in charge, but looked up to as wise overlords.

The WIkimedia Foundation sets you up to do their work for them, to take the hits for them, even delivering those hits themselves when expedient as they did to Fram and so many others, and leaves you with only your own dick in your hand as they walk off with all the money.

Don't forget that for all the bullshit some unnamed person or people have done, it was the Foundation which invited and allowed them to do it, then left it to you and others to do something about it. You helped them and received nothing in return.

One of the central addiction mechanisms is the watchlist. It isn't a benefit but a work assignment. Facebook would kill to make their content pushing feeds so addictive but still the effect is evident when you comment, find five responses the next day and some three hours later realize how they've sucked you in to wasting your time. Wikipedia is that times eleven.

Yep, but only certain people will be dragged in. Wanting to help the world or somesuch. That's something FB will never be able to fake: the bogus impression of "selflessness" and "sacrifice for the greater good" blah blah.
