Rachel Marsden: Entering the Wikimatrix (aka Jimboworld)

with 4 comments

On 23 March 2008, Canadian journalist Rachel Marsden posted the below to her user space on Wikipedia, she posted the same thing to Jimbo Wales’s talk page. Marsden had conducted a brief affair with the Wiki God-King, who then ordered changes to her biography on her behalf. In early March, Wales posted a long personal message on Wikipedia detailing the end of their relationship. Marsden’s response some three weeks later, posted to the same place, was hastily deleted by Wales’s Wiki-minions and Marsden was unceremoniously blocked from the site.

Rachel Marsden : As anyone who has ever cared about Jimbo here knows, the only way to have any sort of rational or caring discussion with him is in the Wikimatrix here. Alright, fine. Game on, sweetheart. Newsflash: Wikipedia is not an encyclopedia; it is a cult. I wouldn’t even be included in a real encyclopedia. I want the Wikipedia entry about me deleted. I don’t know why this is such a difficult concept to accept.

This is not a publishing company, nor is it some kind of altruistic venture for the greater good of humanity. Wikipedia is nothing more than the biggest and most prolific defamation machine that the world has ever known, run by people with varying degrees of personality disorders. You couldn’t have cared less about my Wikipedia entry until we started sleeping together, Jimmy. At that point, it was nicely cleaned up and taken care of through your proxies here on the site, as per your instructions (and it’s not the first time an article has been cleaned up through a proxy, as per your orders…this kind of stuff, contrary to popular belief, doesn’t just happen “magically” here on Wikipedia). Now that we’re not sleeping together and since you so publicly broke up with my here on this website, the page about me has turned into a complete free-for-all.

Are you aware, Jimmy, that “NPOV” (aka “Neutral Point Of View”) is actually an oxymoron? By its very nature, a “point of view” cannot be “neutral”. Communism has failed everywhere it has been tried, Jimmy, and Wikipedia is no exception. As for you trying to make it seem as though your invisible hand isn’t involved in any of this, perhaps it’s wise for people to remember that the greatest feat the devil ever pulled off was convincing people that he doesn’t exist.

  2. Just think if Jimbo really was running an Encyclopedia, instead of a social networking site! This whole thing would be pretty embarrassing, wouldn’t it?

    Eh, maybe I’m being too hard on Jimmy. This alone does not mean that Wikipedia is not an encyclopedia or a worthy non-profit, right? I mean, angry exes probably storm into the offices of Britannica and the Red Cross all the time, shouting in the faces of writers and employees.

  3. Not that I’m totally impressed, but this is a lot more than I expected for when I stumpled upon a link on SU telling that the info here is awesome. Thanks.

  4. Seems very important to me, so i guess it might be the same feeling to everyone.
