Snooganssnoogans

A curious character of mysterious origins. Showed up conveniently during the 2016 primary season and made a lot of edits about the Cod Wars until getting past the necessary threshold to participate in the highly-topical-for-American-politics article on immigration. He took a plainly pro-immigration ...

And his cat need a loving family.
The cat is okay.

Incidentally, to bring focus to Wikipedia, there is a discussion on Jimbo's page about Assange and Jimbo has commented.

Special Counsel Investigation and related pages

Another article in Breitbart. Focuses on editors spinning things on Wikipedia regarding the Mueller investigation result. I also make reference to the Sagecandor/Cirt case over his editing of the Michael Caputo page.

Re: Julian Assange arrested!

Moreno is apparently crooked and began moving to have Assange expelled after WikiLeaks, not Assange himself, mentioned the corruption scandal engulfing his administration. He also has apparently been getting billions from the U.S. to try and essentially buy Assange from them. After the whole situati...

RexxS and RfA's discretionary discretionary range

An otherwise unremarkable request for adminship on April Fool's Day has opened up a rather interesting discussion about how the rules work on Wikipedia with regards to adminship requests. Pudeo started up a whole ArbCom request on the subject. The focus is on the fact the request was taken to crat c...

Re: Sagecandor returns

I wrote up a piece on this whole saga some time back and was attempting to get it up on Breitbart, but it didn't really pan out so I have published it on Medium.

Re: Wikipediocracy's failure is a joy to watch

As far as I can tell, Vigiliant -- who- or what-ever that entity may be -- disagrees with Graff's comments on some other site. And so Vigilant deems it a good thing to dredge through the archves, find Graff's real-life identity and make comments about his family. This is what the Mafia do, isn't it...

Why indeed? But I think he got the time-frame a little wrong -- WO has been running for not two but seven years.
Vigilant's commentary in that thread really leaves a lot to be desired overall. He is missing a big part of the story because he is obsessed with the personalities involved.

Re: Paid editing by Ed Sussman and Beutler Ink

The main reaosn it's on there is likely their coverage of gamergate, which meant a whole lot more to these programmer deviant types than it did to ordinary people. Just look at the logs for the talk page of this article: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Log&page=Talk%3ABrianna+Wu ...

Re: Paid editing by Ed Sussman and Beutler Ink

Well done, Mr. Advocate. It is so funny how the faux critics derided and banned you and now you are singlehandedly running circles around them. There is no meritocracy in these spaces, they will cling to power like fleas cling to a dying goat's rump and you will just have to settle for exile writin...
