Great, Headbomb rides again.

In case anyone's forgotten, Headbomb (aka Gaëtan Landry) is a Randroid physics student who went around banning physics professors. And tried to help defame Paul Davies. And is a fuckwit.

In short, he's an incredible backstabbing little shit. The finest of Wikipedians.

Leave it to your trusty Examiner to capitalize on this story in a mainstream media style that any given citizen can understand.

"lead founder" was a nice touch.

Today's kids are so lucky...back in the day, we had to sneak copies of Penthouse and Hustler into school if we wanted a peak at naughty stuff. Now, Wikipedia puts it at their fingers...and makes it seem scholarly, too! Isn't technology wonderful? smile.gif

Happy that someone noticed that. It's my little counter-homage to the "sole founder".

If this was a tweet, I would retweet it.

Except that it would be over 140 characters unhappy.gif

From personal experience with him on WP, I can vouch for all the above. His being French provides some explanation, but no excuse.

I never understood the kids who would sneak those into the corner of the library, pics of African bush women with tits down to their knees didn't seem really appealing.
