Does arbitrator Mkdw have vagina envy?

Post by Proabivouac » Sat Sep 30, 2017 11:37 pm

An arbitrator calling himself "Mkdw" is mentioned in another thread for having gotten Wikimedia fundraising covergirl Molly White ("Gorilla Warfare") to block his critics:

viewtopic.php?f=30&t=1837

He's deleted his userpage many times – must be nice to have that button, especially when you're "wiling to make difficult (i.e. petty and asinine) blocks":

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... ser%3AMkdw

His description of his business makes him sound like an international human trafficker:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia ... /Mkdw#Mkdw

Here's an archived version of his page– nothing too interesting, but we're proably not seeing the deleted stuff. He's active in WikiProject Vancouver:

https://web.archive.org/web/20100116220 ... /User:Mkdw

Second from the left:

His first edit as Mkdw was to create an article about Studio 58, "an intensive theatre arts program located in Vancouver, British Columbia":

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... arget=Mkdw
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... d=70925964
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... d=76704654

He might be suffering from vagina envy:

I like how first he creates a completely unreferenced faculty list spam article, then he runs around tagging other articles as unreferenced:

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... d=76719658

Slagging the competition, are we?

Naughty, naughty!

He also created pages about some Studio 58 staff. Mkdw created several pages related to the theatrical scene in Vancouver. There's also some extensive editing about the film industry in the city. Given his apparent age, it would not be unreasonable to surmise that perhaps he attended or sought to attend some sort of theatrical school or arts school and may even have aspired to be an actor. That puts his chosen profession in an interesting light. While I mentioned Madonna because she was the first to come to mind, a great many white actors and actresses have adopted non-white children from overseas. An article in The Root gives some examples focused only black children, many of whom were international adoptions. I suppose the question then is if Mkdw has had any famous clients and whether anything he has done on Wikipedia concerned them.

This reeks of COI editing.

Being fair to Mkdw, his apparent age at the time based on the photo on Commons may suggest he was motivated by a personal interest in these educational establishments rather than a professional one.

I agree that it's highly likely that "Mkdw" attended both Langara College as a drama major (Studio 58) and Byng Arts Mini School (this is for especially small students) about which he was similarly passionate:

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... d=81395125
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... d=81083524

He doesn't like the term "HongCouver":

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... d=83376092

What about this, though, with "Biostudentgirl"; is this paid editing or just more vagina envy?

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... d=78271903
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... d=78271000
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... d=78271545
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... d=79814946

Whatever his reasons, it is striking how he spiritedly argues to keep his unsourced fandom while striving to delete just about everything else (and blanking complaints about it):

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... d=76736103
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... d=76860792

He likes "Theatre Under the Stars" a lot:

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... d=83369323
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... d=83372503
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... d=83372943
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... d=83371289
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... d=84556520

I like that "under the stars"; it's a nice way of saying that one doesn't have an actual roof which I'll remember when I'm homeless. As with "Biostudentgirl," he doesn't just write about it, but plugs it everywhere he can.

It shocks me that I haven't seen any Arb being dissected this clearly in a very long time. :)
