Political bias and squabbling

Post by ericbarbour » Sun Aug 29, 2021 8:20 pm

I'm making this a subforum so there's a little more "organization" to the mess.

Please don't create/pile up new topics, combine them if possible. I'M LOOKING AT YOU, CROW.

HA HA HA HA CHORTLE

Anyone who thought we were "rid" of Ashley, or Beeb, or even Rodhullandemu, WE ARE NOT. Because there you will find the shrieking bastards, on Commons, sniping at each other like mean little girls. Ha ha. :flamingbanana:

Don't ask me about Rodhullandemu. The story is ugly and disgusting beyond description, and absolutely NOT for public dissemination. None of you would believe it anyway. But it happened.

Is he accusing me of being "Celtic Minded"? Fuck you Beeb, you pathetic loser. I have not posted anything on any WMF site in ten years, you assmunch.

He's saying that Celtic Minded is CrowsNest and I guess assumes that CrowsNest runs this site. It does look like that sometimes.

That's even funnier. I only put up with Crow because he's hardcore anti-wikicult. People like that are actually quite scarce. All previous WP forums were either run by the wiki-inmates (and failed), or were eventually destroyed by fools seeking the approval of the wiki-inmates.

Beeb is always welcome to come here and explain himself.

(But of course, he won't. This forum does not give a damn about the "delicate feelings" of paranoiac, cryptofascist Wikipedia cult-inductees and their desperate need for online asspats. And to maintain their miserable anonymity. Beeb goes to Wikipediocracy for asspatting because that is basically all they do now. And it appears they keep Vigina around as a rubber movie monster to amuse people. None of the mods here gives a shit about the "magic of the Wikipedia movement". We all know better--having seen epic horror stories first-hand.)

It's undeniable that Wikipediocracy goes easy on (English) Wikipedia, hard on Commons and the WMF, and could care less about all the other projects.

Something else undeniable:

Per long pages. As of tonight, these are the longest BLPs on English Wikipedia.

Donald Trump ‎[425,136 bytes]
‎BTS ‎[410,675 bytes]
Barack Obama ‎[375,755 bytes]
Jeremy Corbyn ‎[358,884 bytes]
‎Cristiano Ronaldo ‎[356,532 bytes]
Gianluigi Buffon ‎[355,148 bytes]

Not unusual to see the last two presidents and Cristiano in there. Otherwise the 500 longest articles are full of Trump rants, COVID-19 trivia, and the usual crap (sports trivia, lists of tv shows, political lists etc).

This is what you get when you let random crazy people edit something.
