Yes, I saw that. Maybe one of the Simpson writers has a beef with WP or maybe they read this forum? biggrin.gif

Check yer spiel-chucker, Spell, I'm pretty sure if it's Amerkin Dud that must be a camel.

Insert your own Bill Clinton joke here.

I'm surprised it's still on the air. I thought they stopped making new episodes years ago and aside from that movie, the only new simpsons stuff being made is Rule 34! Yes, Rule 34.

I could've sworn the Comic Book Guy mentioned Wikipedia in an episode a while back - 2 or 3 seasons ago? Can't remember exactly, but I'm pretty sure this isn't the first time WP has been mentioned.

There was some non-canon comic book mention.

Why is this in Reality-Challenged? I'm not sure where it belongs exactly, but perhaps just regular old General Discussion would do?

WADDAYA XPECT from a Terminator Sockpuppet ???

But at least we know the boundaries now:
  • Asking your girlfriend to have a guy wacked = Criticism
  • Saying that Lefty's real name is, say, "Virgil" = Harassment
On a related note, I've always had trouble spelling the word criticism — made 3 typos in a row just trying to type the above. I suggest that we all "unlearn" — in a Slrubensteinian way — the old spelling and start using the new spelling, critisimpson.

Ah, of course, Mr Beback. Yes, threatening to kill non-admins is OK, it's not like criticising an admin, is it?

Typical humorless constipation, as it happens, is very well thought of by Jimmy Wales. rolleyes.gif
