A classic example of why declaring a conflict of interest is not remotely a sensible thing to do.

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... =850224088

This user's treatment at the hands of cowboy Administrators who hate any and all forms of paid editing, is of course against policy. A user is entitled to join Wikipedia and edit only about what they are paid to edit about, as long as they follow all the relevant rules.

These Administrators don't give a crap that they are off-reservation, enforcing the rules that they want to exist, not that actually exist. And nobody else will care, if they even notice.

And if these articles ever appear again, it will be assume they were created by socks of this guy, and deleted with prejudice. So the company will never ever get recognition on Wikipedia, even if they deserve it.

All because they tried to follow Wikipedia's rules.

DO. NOT. DECLARE. It is not worth it.

So stupid and outrageous, CorporateM himself removed some puffery:

Also, this was added by an IP address belonging to a business in Vista, California. The homebase of Watkins.

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

Created by and almost entirely written by PR Alma.
An undeclared paid editor. Who also wrote the bulk of this. The place where most of Kayenta's coal goes.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Navajo_Generating_Station

The environmental movement has hated the NGS and Kayenta mine since they were started in the 1970s. Building a huge stripmine and coal-fired power plant to pollute the clean skies of northern Arizona would be unthinkable today. Do you see the usual "Controversy" sections in those articles? Not that it matters much, Peabody Coal has been circling the drain for a few years. (Maybe Peabody should have hired PR Alma? I bet the Navajo Nation could use her help too, eh? Not that someone spindoctoring on Wikipedia could save the coal industry at this point.)

The "Wiki-Luv-Pedians" damn well know what happened, because in 2013 Fred Bauder fought with her, and gave up:

Virtually unnoticed:

Both substantially the work of Eviezc. I mean, come on, don't insult us:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elk_Creek,_California
Quote:
The town of Elk Creek is just north of Stony Gorge Reservoir, a nice place for camping, fishing, and boating. Elk Creek, the town's namesake, runs out of the Coast Range mountains to the east into Stony Creek. Stony Creek runs from the dam at Stony Gorge into another lake a bit further up the map called Black Butte Lake – also an excellent place to fish, boat, camp, hike, and partake in various other outdoor activities. Hunting is restricted to shotguns and bows.

it's been there for TEN YEARS. And no one cares.

Ya know, it's a pretty good bet that Accurate1000 was employed by either the U.S. Air Force or Raytheon, and did nothing but make the Active Denial System seem more benign than it really is.....

I don't know how "benign" a weapon can be, or to what extent this one "really is", and I don't suppose you do either. What you mean, I think, is that they were paid to present an aspect of the weapon system that was not being presented by the people anxious to include material criticising it.

A circular link to this thread via Helen of desTroy.
A follow-up piece and another. Footnotes inside... she's done a lot of work.

The first essay is general and gets some things wrong. (she shouldn't say Wikimedia owns WikiTribune to pick one example... or radicalize the things I've written into accusations against the mighty mighty Clintons. )

The second and third are particularly concerned with quackwatch.com (specifically Stephen Barrett) and nutritional supplements respectively. Any thoughts?

Do me a favor--try to contact Ms. Buyniski and have her email or PM me directly. I can share a copy of the book wiki notes. She obviously need them.
