Re: Sagecandor returns

I drew attention to X1\ in my WPO article (in a sort of roundabout way). Not sure they're the CIRT (in fact, I'd given up trying to guess), but I am sure they're not very fair play. It's a clever user name, it breaks the WPO "wparticle" tag and makes linking difficult in general.

Re: ArbCom 2018 election

Well TDA I proxy-voted for you. I'm probably too close to a 500-day punishment for wrong-think / bugging the CIRT to think clearly. It is possible Isarra is a Comedy Central plant, rather than the good egg I think she might be. I disagree with Silk Tork about some things, I see, but they at least ha...

Re: Editors is a dumb name

Articles is a dumb name too. It should be "entries".

As for "contributors", I've also heard "sucks".

Re: ArbCom 2018 election

I remember being annoyed by Salvidrim! watching over my first Cirt block so carefully. The guy struck me as ambitious; apparently he's just an email power-user. I don't remember that ArbCom race that well, but I do remember him wanting to become a bureaucat shortly before being desysopped. Where is ...

Re: ArbCom 2018 election

Hmm, well, I suppose I tried to pitch a softball in there. I thought GW would hit it out of the park with a reply convincing by virtue of its simplicity and transparence. That reply hasn't happened quite yet, but may soon. :)

Re: Veracity of statements by Donald Trump

FYI I picked the title because it was NPOV, although I realise the content isn't. Oh , I see . That history page is fun. 4,5K --> 70K in 5 short days. It appears that ... the vast majority of the 4.5k character tokens you invested are still there, and, that... Bullrangifer quacked out half your art...

Re: ArbCom 2018 election

As for the English Wikipedia, just read this RfA . :lol: It's interesting to see just how many of the old crew are still around / renamed, etc. Back in the day, you could apparently make legal threats in an RfA and still get the buttons (with support from Andrevan, Gamaliel, etc.) But then I guess ...

Re: ArbCom 2018 election

Well, I'm sure y'all'll be relieved to know that GW has announced her run on November 14th in already darkened continental Europe. (Wasn't the 13th the cutoff date? oh... GMT... ^^) No sooner had she done so than her name in blue did verily pop up hovering in the reading this subforum box over at WP...

Re: ArbCom 2018 election

Also mentioned was the Atlantic Council, which Bauder stated had ties to NATO citing the same source and, again, the source did not mention such ties. However, he [ Bauder ] did later correct himself on the "propaganda" characterization. The NATO ties were still mentioned despite being unsourced. M...

Re: Milo Yiannopoulos

I admit that reading his comment about The Daily Beast secondhand made me chuckle. Shame on me. ^^ Speaking of the DB: have you read this by any chance? I don't know enough about Milo to have an informed opinion on everything he's ever said or to try to prove he's not an X , but really a Y . And in ...
