Jimbo must not like living in a trailer park. Seems he has a lot of pent up anger. I wonder what the specific crime was, to call for this today? It's gotta be the trailer park, right?

How about that. I didn't know that Wales still presumed to have the authority to declare someone banned permanently throughout the projects.

I'm sure you're utterly devastated, Greg.

Hi. Please enforce the global ban on Thekohser declared by Jimbo Wales in this edit. Thanks! — Jeff G. ツ 02:39, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Hi, I'm not sure if this is a proper venue; while I personally support this idea, why not globallock the account instead of ask for enforcement to each local community? --Aphaia 02:46, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

And as far as I understand Jimmy has no special privilege to declare such a global ban unless he speaks on behalf of the Board. Thus your request is declined currently. Thanks. --Aphaia 02:52, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your quick responses. — Jeff G. ツ 03:03, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

I must say, this ban is utterly unfair ... I have put in just as much effort and energy and yet am only able to elicit a non-committal "indef ban" out of them.

I demand to be globally banned immediately and without having to establish a Yahoo Questions account.

He did the same to me a year and a half ago. That was when he first threatened to shut down Wikiversity, declaring study materials there on "The Ethical Management of the English Wikipedia" to be "beyond the scope" of WMF-sponsored projects.

So this newest occasion would be the third time in a year and a half when Jimbo has invoked the same dictat to silence people who have investigated ethical lapses in his projects.

Didn't he declare that two months ago? I guess this is now just followup.

Here is the fellow who shopped around my banning from Wikimedia project to Wikimedia project.

Honor is due, Greg.

I think Jimbo is inside the trailer, because Killerchihuahua is guarding access. Image

Huzzah! smile.gif

So I take it the idea here was for Mr. Guinzburg & Co. to get rid of the Rachel Marsden sex-chat quote from Jimbo's Wikiquote page, which they'd only just noticed?

I hate to say this, but Ms. Marsden's log of the sex chat probably wouldn't meet whatever sourcing guidelines are analagous to (and hopefully more stringent than) "WP:RS" for a professionally-produced encyclopedia, putting aside the question of whether or not Jimbo has admitted to their being substantially correct... ermm.gif That's not to say the quote is inaccurate, or that Jimbo wouldn't have typed the line(s) in question; in fact, I'd say the quote's likelihood-of-accuracy is at least 90 percent. But sex-chat logs can be easily falsified, as my own experiences with at least two members of The Shaggs will attest.

Phew, I can see why they'd want to ban me from Wikimedia Commons! Look at that line-up of contributions -- practically all of them fixated on tormenting Jimbo Wales.

I don't know... it was sourced to The Globe & Mail. Is that a disreputable source?

Anyway, you're right that this was a little mission of Jimbo's today -- what else could "per request" mean?

Jimbo loves the Truth, except when the subject is Jimbo.

Oooh, now this is interesting. It would appear that a few members of the English Wikisource community retain a spine of their own. They even have the presence of mind to discover that maybe this all has to do with Jimbo's idiotic behavior on Wikiversity.

Alas, I have a feeling they will be beaten into submission by the drone bees.

QUOTE(Wikisource)
I have to agree emphatically with Charles Matthews. Thekohser is such a master of words and images, he is an utter danger to all that Wikisource stands for. His every move is a puzzle, within a cryptogram, within an acrostic. Indeed, he could strike anywhere, so we must be ever vigilant against his threat. -- Reshokeht (talk) 14:52, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Reshokeht?

TheKohser is back(wards) at it again?

I would like to congratulate Kohser on this achievement. He has managed to piss off Wales so much that he was banned from Wikimedia completely, per Wales' decree. Isn't Kohs now only like the second person to ever be banned across every project?

I don't know who to feel sorry for more: Kohs, who seems to live and breathe Wikipedia and Jimmy Wales, or Wales, who acts so completely clueless in pretty much everything he does.
