And that would probably be this.

(warning: extremely offensive, especially to those of African extraction.
Liberal use of the n-word, and worse. Also an incoherent mess, as if
anyone cares.)

Yeah it's pretty bad.

It's nothing but uninteresting, long racist crap.

I've been so used to seeing racist stuff that's non-serious and merely trolling I forgot what real racism looks like.

On a purely technical note, that site is not in fact using MediaWiki. *looks* Just the monobook theme.

Yup. It's using PmWiki, but you can still snoop around a bit. Here's some of the contributors' IP addresses, for example.

BTW - the article, The End Of White Guilt which rails on about American politics, Barack Obama, etc ... was uploaded by some basement-dweller from London bored.gif and their domain was registered by WhoisGuard - lol cowards tongue.gif Their site is being hosted by NetSol out of Dallas, though.

Metapedia is pretty horrible and does actually use mediawiki, especially as it's not immediately noticeable just how horribly racist it is.
