The demise of Hasteur

Post by ericbarbour » Fri Jul 24, 2020 12:06 am

Never heard of him? He was a very popular bot author. God knows how many bots he wrote. I saw he had 15 of them 'officially approved', and there may have been others that churned the database without approval.

Two weeks ago he died of Covid. Supposedly went 6 days from "perfectly healthy to a coffin". Oddly, there was no public notice on WP of his demise. They just put him on the "Deceased Wikipedians" page and locked his accounts. ... away/72625

Let us not forget that he didn't like Arbcom -- and this was his "reward" for trying to say as much. "Hive of scum" indeed. ... nd_villany

Yeah hasteur was an asshole honestly! I didn't wish them dead of course, but always hated them.
