WMF bans more frequently than ever before.

Post by CMAwatch » Wed Jul 29, 2020 5:14 pm

List of global bans placed by the Wikimedia Foundation
  • 2012: 1 (but that page only exists since 2015)
  • 2013: 0
  • 2014: 2 on the same day, December 3rd
  • 2015: 8 (gaining traction)
  • 2016: 6 (steady)
  • 2017: 7 (steady)
  • 2018: 9 (it's climbing)
  • 2019: 16 (that shot up quickly!)
  • 2020 12 (until July 27th – that was FAST!)
I am not judging whether the bans were reasonable or not (details are hardly known anyway), just showing that they have increased over the years.

The last one is Flooded them with hundreds (whatever that means). I am sure I have heard that name somewhere…

Yeah, that's quite hilarious. The Wikidiots aren't satisfied with banishment, now they have to add "public humiliation via stupid Global Ban" La la la.

Most of this is "ancient history". One item worth mentioning, for its sheer evil: Erika "BrillLyle" Herzog was secretary of Wikimedia NYC until 2018, when an "unexplained disappearance" occurred. Far as I can tell she'd been fighting with that worthless pus-bag Andy Mabbett, who managed to talk Bbb23 into "purging" her. Explains many things. She was not a bad content writer and they STILL need more female editors to work thru the massive backlog of undocumented prominent women thru history; this seems as if sexist piggery took over. Since many revs disappeared, we will never know the full story.
