Anyone remember Greg Wickwire?

Post by ericbarbour » Sun Feb 11, 2024 7:30 pm

Back in 2011-13 this "nice young man" from Round Rock TX was a very reliable, and LOUD, supporter of the "glorious Wiki Way". Sucked up to the Ironholds crew on IRC channels for a while. Sucked up to Jimbo on Jimbotalk. Very good buds with the notorious Scott "Russavia" Bibby. Too many examples of his open abuse of other WP editors to list here. There's no trace left of his attempt to run for adminship--I suspect things have been "disappeared". He was also notorious for showing up on the RFAs of others to make demands and accusations. Again, too many to list. Wiki Loves Useful Idiots up to a point.

You'll have to be satisfied with whatever is left on WPO. Have a vague memory that Wickwire was screaming somewhere (if not on WPO itself) that WPO was EEEVVVVIIILLLL and had to be destroyed. Wee Billy removed the dox on him, despite our finding it was very easy to dox someone from Texas named "Gregory Wickwire". Wikipediocracy is censored for your protection!

A few have wondered what happened to Wickwire in the ten years since he "retired" from WP.
Let me drop something to illuminate the story further. Courtesy of badmachine.

i had forgotten about the sleazy wikipedians he was/is allied with. its like a whos who of wikipedias worst people including tamzin (PinkAmpersand) and demiurge1000.

i wonder if the reason wikipedos are like this is that theyre all on uppers/Ritalins/Adderall. 🤔

Count on it. Most of the common ADHD medications on the market today are amphetamines or similar.
Ask the Wikipedians!

I should also note that the last post in the latest Wikipediocracy thread was by Wee Billy. And mentions that Wickwire, under the name "Charmlet", had put in an appearance. Billy moved all that to a "seekret thread" in the seekret area which I no longer have access to. More than 10 years later they are still hiding it.
