Seriously? This is Wikipedia of 2019. I know you've been away, but real personal connections underpinning their assorted wiki-lives are ubiquitous in wikiland now. Meetups, editathons, WikiMania, it's a Meat Space movement now. WMF bans are as much about locking down real events as it is websites, but you knew that of course. The blog writer affiliated to this site can tell you a thing or two about that. Don't tell him you're from Wikipediocracy though, you lot don't carry much respect in those circles. Your crew, the tree house love squad, is more about being let into these events and having nice chats these days, or didn't you fucking know that either?
The fuck did you think Wikipedian In Residences even were? They're the new Priesthood, representing the Church of Outreach. You psychos on Wikipediocracy had an OutReacher as a member for a while, but she we as woman, so decided to go hang out down the docks to feel a little safer in her spare time. No cosy chats for her. Odd that. You want a picture btw? For your album. Kidding. As if we're bin divers like you lot.
Genuinely digital realm volunteers have to have been the fastest declining sub-group of active editors (one for Timmy to investigate). Not that it was surely ever a secret to Wikipediocracy elders like you that social networking between volunteers and the WMF has always been prevalent? It's all just an extension of that now - meeting people and not swearing at them can even get you Adminship now, as per RexxS. I wrote about it here. Your crew tried, but the Wikipedia love was all over it. Taints the product, always does, always will.

Is saying it approval now? A lot of Wikipedians say a lot of shit that if it came down to it, wouldn't be allowed. That wouldn't happen if the community regulated such directional sounding speech rather than treating it like it is Free, but hey, nobody wants that, least of all your crew. They love an edit notice, your boyz.
And again, I know you've been away, but these days, and I'm quite sure for a long while, it's not been unheard of for Wikipedians to openly declare which Administrators they did and did not trust to handle their affairs. It used to be called mentorship, now, well, when it's not openly said, it is left as an unwritten rule. People just kinda know you don't fuck with RexxS without Bishonen's prior approval. Meaning, you didn't fuck with RexxS for very long, not unless you want to draw blood. How long did Fram get away with butting heads with RexxS? Do you know? Do you care? Did it ever enter your mind Fram faced all sorts of barriers to his efforts, no need or even sense in pretending there was a corporate vs. volunteer component dominating any other. He loves you for saying it though, I'm quite sure.
I mean, fuck, do you even really know how hated Fram was, just by pure breed volunteers? It only really came to a head while you wandered in the desert. People who would not be seen dead at a meat space event, at least not one run by the System (drinks with RexxS, count them in!), much less count any of them as friends? Ritchie. Ritchie. Ritchie. How many times do I need to spoon feed you wastes of space this good shit?
Ritchie married a Wikipedian, for fuck's sake, and she left him, presumably for being way too much of a Wikipedian. No bin diving required, just drama watching, probably involving Fram now I think on it. You think RexxS would enforce an WMF Global Ban on the ferret fucker, or Ritchie, his actual ride
(transport, not sexual, maybe)? It's a nice summer evening in a Manchesster pub. Drink has been taken. Bon homie. Ohh, a hand in my knee. Was it intentional?.......these people don't want Safe Spaces, they want fraternity. Bros before hos. The only women allowed, are the ones who would put up with them, or are worse. Always a Bishonen in every biker gang. We got their names. You got their pics? No, do not want. Keep them in your dirty files.
This is the real social network that underpins so much of the sludge that sloughs around Wikipedia. And you're mad about a women listing her entirely unenforceable designated non-Trogs? Come off it.

Practically commonplace these days. The vehemently anti-WMF Ferret Fucker was the original spoiled child, at least the one to achieve true longevity in his performance, remember? Course you do. Every single faction has since discovered the benefits of realizing WP:OWN is the next weakest policy after civility.
Come on. Basic topical knowledge, this shit.
New Administrator RexxS has done not much more with his tools than protect his turf, pretty much as he said he would, not that your crew has noticed. They call it stewardship now, the benevolent act of a trusted volunteer. They met him. Looked into his eyes. The kind understanding eyes, of yet another old white dude. Never sworn at a kid in his life. In meat space. So he said. Sworn at people on Wikipedia, a person he seemed to think was young and impressionable. Your crew catch that did they? All about the Meat Space-Facebook-Wikipedia duty of care gap, your peoples. Right? RIGHT? Trust and
Safety. Important work.
Not always about just who touches who. But if you want to viciously fight the legal case that could ultimately prove Kumioko didn't touch kids, you feel free. Your nest. Your reputation. Your problem.

Well, James Alexander certainly did. More money for less slime, I'd say. You know who probably had a real big hand in James deciding this shit just wasn't worth it? In a non-slimey way. Our
guy. Your crew once had a guy who tried to press the issue of whether T&S meat space bans are just so much unconstitutional bullshit. They laughed. Didn't laugh at our guy. Scared to even mention his name. Afraid of him. Could see the fear on his face, the guilt ridden look of a man who knows he can't justify his salary. We do pictures too, see. When it matters. Got a nice pic of your Head Man having Tea and Biscuits too, I seem to recall. Now don't you be fronting at him, your Head Man is a pretty old dude, you don't want a heart attack on your hands. Well, not for native English speakers anyway, right?
This shit is embarrassing dude. Update your knowledge of Wikipedia and your nest, fast. Bro.
Better yet, do as you promised and fight back. Memes? The fuck is that? Cute, but hey, when I think about what you were probably looking for when you found it, I just feel used. Eyes up here!
I mean, come on.......
* Tell me she's not directly involved with this.
* Tell me that she didn't receive any preferential treatment based on her connections to you.
* Tell me that having this polemic calling out individuals in the WMF T&S org is completely normal.
* he did
* HE DID
* it isn't (but you seem to have not bothered to acknowledge why she probably thought it necessary)
Too easy this. Can't even say you're out to feed the mooks anymore. Who is the intended reader of this particular turd sandwich? Timmy? Don't waste your time. You had him at aaarrrggghhhhh.
