Re: Katherine Maher, executive director Wikimedia Foundation

Smallbones was impressed enough with Gizbert's interview of Maher that he decided it was a notable addition to the former's BLP. (§)

Re: Sagecandor returns

Wow TDA, I hadn't seen your retrospective on Twitter. (§) Thanks for putting that together. Meanwhile, people on WPO seem to be poking through his promotional writings (§).

JzG's banns repealed

It's looking more and more like JzG's going to be deleted. I think that the asteroid shower, quickly zapped by Tornado Chaser, caused an interesting reaction: particularly the curious 1-2 from BullRangifer (an old-skool artist formerly known as a Quackwatch guy ( § )) and O3000 (the artist formerly ...

Re: Wikipediocracy's failure is a joy to watch

you think? :lol: I kind of liked Ming's homework assignment since I didn't know a bot regularly popped up work to keep unpaid volunteers from getting bored.

Re: Breitbart Banned as Reliable Source

I don't know if you saw Dysklyver's post about this ban on his blog . I wouldn't be surprised if your articles weren't part of the reason they went so far as to actively blacklist it. Sadly, I can't check his claim that you can't save a page with a Breitbart reference already contained in it without...

Re: Sagecandor returns

You did a good thing for Wikipedia, Pudeo. I saw a contributor I like getting bullied by Sage just the other day. It was only a matter of time before they started hauling people to the drama boards again. I find it amazing ArbCom ignored exactly the same evidence for over a year until the moment whe...

Re: Coil and Ripple

hm... so the former CTO of Ripple has founded Coil. I wish I remember where exactly I was reading tinhat type stuff about Ripple going after SWIFTian neutrality. Was it at https://www.ft.com/content/631af8cc-47cc-11e8-8c77-ff51caedcde6 ? No, as it turns out, it was at https://www.wikitribune.com/art...

Re: Sagecandor returns

lol. "poor guy". When I read SC accusing someone of "specious arguments" in the AfD on Mark Judge's BLP, it brought back memories of their attack-dog style. WRC has suggested they get their articles ready-made from a publishing-house source. I'm less convinced. I'm surprised nobody notices the diffe...

Re: Suckswatch

I'm very puzzled how we got from "Let's push valium" any time someone complains of the blues (my grandmother's doctor had a doctor do just that around the time that this was the Sackler marketing strategy) to these cries of anti-Semitism. I hadn't remembered the Sackler's religion the first time I r...

Re: Suckswatch

I was about a zillion miles from this doing follow-up on Strelnikov's post (looking into Korean newspapers on en.wp). I was reading Kim-Jong Un's sister's page at en.wp -- and wondering whether even she should have BLP rights concerning her private life -- when I stumbled onto quite an interesting a...
