It is now apparently open season on Jimmy Wales, and instead of ensuring he is entitled to the same respect and indeed policy protection as any other editor, it is the great and the good of the Wikipedia Administrator ranks who are guilty of some of the most blatant attacks you will ever see conducted on Wikipedia. The sight of these cowards kvetching and plotting against their Spiritual Leader on the talk page of the one among them who most covets Jimmy's title and status as Chief Grand PoohBah, is frankly hilarious.

It is a most basic Wikipedia policy that you do not do this. It could not be clearer. They cannot claim ignorance of it, because it would be assumed they are either lying, or are incompetent. Policy says, you either have to have the balls to raise legitimate concerns in a proper venue, or you shut the fuck up. Those are the Rules of the Game. They are their community approved rules of conduct, they are not the Foundation Terms of Use, although the latter obviously have something to say about what is happening here too.

I guess it doesn't matter though, when the people trusted to enforce these rules, are the ones whose cowardice and dishonour leads them to violate them so freely. And you can see why the WMF would not want to be seen to have to be using their Legal Powers to protect Jimmy Wales from some of the most "respected" and "trusted" elements of the scummy volunteers they leave to build and maintain the crap they call an encyclopedia.

It is quite funny indeed that they claim the media doesn't take enough interest in what Jimmy does on Wikipedia. They should be frankly shitting themselves at the thought the Daily Mail might be alerted to this little gang's plots. They found out the identity of Hilbillyholiday pretty easily, and I have half a mind to think that was with the secret help of Jimmy, when he realised what that dude's real agenda was (embarrass Jimmy as well as take down the Mail). Iridescent is easily identified, given what people like us and indeed Jimmy can tell the Mail about their Wikipedia past.

Can you pass me the popcorn, Crow? The only wiki star I am missing till now in this drama is our own 100 % Dutch Drmies.
It's absolute clear there are problems in wiki paradise, first Alexander who left the wiki house via the back strait, and now this.

What is internet and Wikipedia a miracle, being in snowily Holland in the middel of the clay sitting at the front seat row of the wiki theater. And never forget, it is complete for free this soap.
I think they want to blame Jimmy for everything what went wrong, no matter if he has done it or note. Just my two cents.

I love how Iridescent says:

Quote:
... the only mechanism by which he can be removed is [arbcom] ... expect the arbs and parties would all receive midnight phone calls ... about doxxing [in the] external media ... [because] WMF staff ... seized by righteous anger ... leak the names and addresses of anyone who posts or votes against Jimmy.

The opposite of love is not hate, it is apathy.

Jimmy Wales, who?

How the fuck does that narcissistic douchebag matter?

Hate is literally the opposite of love.
Apathy is the opposite of enthusiasm.

Jimmy Wales is the founder of Wikipedia.

And he matters because as the founder, he he managed to stay in a position of influence which gives him control over the WMF which owns Wikipedia.

And this is more "real" than many people think, as he physically controls a lot of their money via a complex endowment setup.

Therefore, he matters.

Jimmy is absolute a important factor. In this documentary is the reporter with a tablet with picture of Jimmy in his hand walking on his way to WMC2017 and and the documentary starts with a portret on the desk of the reporter of Jimmy. Het Klokhuis a very populair program for children in the age 6 to 12 years.

No Arthur, Jimmy claimed he was the creator of Wikipedia, but that is not true.

And that is what I doubt. In the beginning, yes, for sure, but in my opinion Jimmy has lost the controle over wikipedia years and years ago and is simple trapped in Hotel California what is a pyramide scheme of lies. Just like the rest.
Jimmy did know dammed well that complete European Parlement lobbing was nonsens, what would be another reason he voted against that Brussel Chapter of Romaine and frends? But still the whole circus was continued, with a Brussels Advocating Group, call your MEP although it was clearly complete bullshit. It was in one word rediciles. Jimmy has not any influence anymore in WMF. Not any. He is a lame duck.

It's worth mentioning that Jimbo has admitted to using an alternate account to edit so these are only the edits we know about through his Jimbo Wales account. It's likely that more controversial edits are being done by his alt account we don't know about.

Yeh, is possible. But as long as we don't know his alternate account it's also possible he writes only about Pocahontas characters and Harry Potter.

According to him he uses it so that undo criticism or scrutiny won't be levied upon the edit because Jimbo did it. He also uses it to see how new editors are treated and has, on more than one occasion, admitted he did not like how that account was treated.

Jimmy Wales in following policy and looking out for the health of the community shocker.

With critics like you, Wikipedia is doomed, for sure. :roll:
