Yes, good old British and Irish disputes again evilgrin.gif

So how do you do it on Wikipedia? There's a hard nut of Irish Nationalist editors who stick through thick and thin (mainly thick) to support the twisted POVs of each other. There is no similar cabal of Irish unionist editors to combat the buggers. This is because all editors eligible for that mould work in a most gentlemanly fashion and wouldn't sink so low as to tag team edit. In the list we have, in no particular order (and the list is not exhaustive),

One Night in Hackney, an obvious reincarnation (prize if you can guess of who)

Mo aim, another relaunch (prize again)

BJMullan, a bit of a cunt

Domer48, a lot of a cunt

Murry1975, a thick prick

NorthernCounties, a quiet sort of slimeball

Some cunt with an unpronounceable name, and an admin would you believe!

Brocach, new kid on the block and someone who'd have us believe he's intelligent

Then of course we've got part time admin and general all round scumbag Cailil

These gits back each other up to the hilt. How many of them are the same person? Lurking somewhere in there is probably that arch serial sockfucker Wikipéire

So how to deal with them. Maybe a unionist sock farm is the only way. Thoughts please.

Wasn't Ireland starting to finally honor their WWII vets who fought for the Allies? I think I read some story about that a few months back.

Until they get that stuff in order, yeah whatever I'll support the British side.

Turns out the biased Cailil is dealing with the problem. In a classic case of boomerang laugh.gif he's banned one of the tossers from British Isles stuff, namely Bjmullan. In his haste he's also banned a gallant unionist editor, van speijk. Still, halfway right is not bad I suppose.

Let's see you write up a timeline of the British Isles/Irish editwarring, TKW. Go ahead. It's a LOT more difficult than it appears.

An interesting development on the British Isles front here:

Politics of the British Isles

Here we have the closing admin deciding that despite the inconclusiveness of the debate, that the aforementioned article should be deleted. But then, the closing admin does think that the term British Isles is, quote "rather loaded". So I suppose he would want it deleted, wouldn't he?

It's this sort of stuff that really makes you puke, and realise that Wikipedia is governed by complete arse'oles (or assholes if you prefer).

And Highkings Topic Ban is being reviewed and its likely he'll be back to his old tricks again. TKW, time to get some of those sockies dusted off. I assume VanS was one of yours so that was a setback.

Certainly I realise that "Politics of the British Isles" is a meaningless article title and I wonder at the motives of its originator. We all know that the British Isles includes two separate countries plus various semi-independent bits under British protection. And of course there are some devolved bits where the politics may much differ from the national one. You might as well have "Politics of Central Asia" covering several bits of the ex USSR.

My policy is never to confirm or deny the existence or otherwise of a sock. However, VanSpeijk is a bit of a loss. He was doing some good work and has now been silenced. But, so has Mullan, so maybe his job was done anyway - but wait - arch BI deletor is back, as you said he would be, un-topic-banned and immediately he's away with it. nope.gif

Haven't you got to laugh at that clown Cailil and his ramblings. This git has set himself up as the Wikipedia judge , jury and executioner in this matter. How the community has let him get away with it is pretty disgusting, but that's Wikipedia for you.

Ho hum! back to the struggle. One bollock brain (bjm, not vs) is silenced as another one is let loose again. Onward into battle !!! rolleyes.gif
