Re: Wikipediocracy's failure is a joy to watch

The war has been terrible, for every nation. Also for the Germans, don't forget that. Dresden, and how many young Germans has died too who had nothing to do with nazism. The bombing of Dresden was absoluut a warcrime, it had not any strategic goal.

Re: Everipedia

I don't think any wiki formula will ever meet any minimum standard, Renée, so who cares. It is at it's best a sometimes useful product, but don't forget it is for free. And TonyBallioni is just a tremendous troll, as you can see here , And here. It was because of a small incident, Tony even started ...
