Hi everyone,

Without mentioning his name (which will only bring him here, so please let's just refer to him as MediaWiki PosterBoy), I wanted to share latest on him. He has now made it complete, even using his real name now to continue his activity. I don't need to write anymore about him now really, case closed!

That skeptic troll farm is even getting boring now.

Also, fun stuff that's kinda scary/freaky: This is a bit outside my territory, I discovered evidence of a proRussia troll farm linking with Trump on twitter as early as 2014, and since I saw no mention of this obvious troll account in the media yet, I made a record of it here: http://wikipediawehaveaproblem.com/2018 ... fore-2015/

Not meant to be a political discussion, fyi.

Cheers!
WWHP

Good read.

Do they not realise nobody reads Wikia? It's like a running joke inside Wikipedia.

You've tried a basic takedown request of course?

thx CrowsNest. Wiki has lively niche communities still, they may be small in comparison to the other MediaWiki's, but the still have a wallop of a punch in GoogleSearch and still generating advertising dollars.

No, I haven't requested take down yet, this secondary RationalWiki attack article actually makes the case I think a bit more clear, so helping more than hurting.
