I honestly think Pagan Kennedy is a flake. Her writing can be very annoying, mannered, and smug. Fresh example.

If you ever run into her, ask her who Britzelpretzel is.

Henry Juskiewicz was forced out of the CEO job at guitar maker Gibson last year.
But he talked his wife.......into editing his Wikipedia bio. Openly. (And she failed.)

Does anyone remember John Foxx, the singer from the early "New Wave" band Ultravox?

I suspect he's been editing Wikipedia--especially his own content. The name of this user is similar to that of his private record label.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Metamatica

Similar "questionable activity" is visible on the article about one of Foxx's past collaborators, Ben "Benge" Edwards. He's a complete nobody except for his horrible nerdy blog in which he worships his Buchla synthesizer.

Paul "Tench" Merritt created this article and is the operator of Ben's private record label, Expanding Records.
Very blatant and not even well written. (It didn't come out in the wash ;) .)

Because Stierlitz mentioned the Judge Rotenberg Center in a private email. My response:

Anyone remember my post about Tristan Harris from 2018?

https://www.wikipediasucks.co/forum/vie ... 3055#p3055

Two months after that, someone created an article about Harris, as a redirect.

And several months after that, this candidate for a paid editor greatly expanded it.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PAETEC_Holding_Corp.

This article has existed since 2005. Badly edited since then. PAETEC is notorious for offering "services" to phone scammers and telemarketers, of the Ignore-The-Do-Not-Call-List variety. The extra-sleazy type. Said fact was not added to the article until 2016. If we had some actual "justice" PAETEC would have been shut down by the FTC years ago.

Obvious candidates for careful paid editors are prominent in the history;

Major target for screaming WP skeptics (Does Guy Chapman fight over this article? Does the pope shit in the woods?), and growing ever longer and angrier and less readable as a result:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Sears_(physician)

Guess what.

Bonus: Dr. Sears is about to be subjected to a new California law--aimed directly at HIM.

Quote:
Neumann, after spending an international flight on a private jet toking, reportedly left a cereal box stuffed with so much weed on the plane that when crewmembers found it in Israel, they called the plane’s owner. The plane’s owner ordered the plane back, leaving Neumann stranded, because he was worried about becoming involved in international drug trafficking.
According to several of the Journal’s sources, Neumann hopes to live forever. He also talks of becoming “president of the world.” (The story only talks about Neumann’s consumption of tequila and weed, despite these being cocaine thoughts.)
Neumann once fired 7 percent of his staff. At the end of an all-hands meeting announcing the cuts, he had employees carry trays of tequila shots into the room. Then, Darryl McDaniels of Run-DMC walked out and played a set, and workers reportedly danced to “It’s Tricky.”
Rebekah Neumann, Adam’s wife and colleague, once reportedly had multiple employees fired after meeting them for just a few minutes because “she didn’t like their energy.”

And you will not read about any of this in Adam Neumann, because his article is being watched very carefully by a litany of notorious undeclared probably-paid-editors. Including Edwardx, Patapsco913 and RaphaelQS. Being Israeli and Jewish, and therefore under the "automatic protection" of the Jayjg Mafia, doesn't seem to have been a factor----yet.

(Seen Jayjg's edit history lately? Now he fixates almost entirely on obscure Jewish historical articles. He seems to be staying off the noticeboards, and usually only reverts edits if he can wave the "rule book". Not like the "good old days" when he abused his power shamelessly, hell no. But he remains a petty, small-minded nitpicker.)
