The question may end up being when [[Linda Mack]] or [[Sarah McEwan]] is created. That's when the real shitstorm will commence.

It will be the shortest, quickly deleted shitstorm in history. happy.gif

What I find amazing is that no one has called Swatjester on the carpet for bringinig up ED in his New York Times interview, and for specifically singling out SV, and calling the article funny.

He's on some list of hers somewhere, and he's going to pay. Someday.

Swatjester gave her real name more press than Daniel Brandt ever did. Quite unthinkingly.

Wikipedia won't even allow an article on Swalwell, Alberta due to the interests of a particular Wikipedia group.

And to think these dimbulbs still don't realize that by deleting the Swalwell, AB article over and over, for "trolling", they're putting up a huge flashing neon red arrow that says "something important is being hidden here"... and people will be curious as to what (SlimVirgin) it (Linda Mack) is (fnord)?

You probably shouldn't have done this. One was in General Discussion, in relation to the story directly, while the other was in Wikipedia in the Media, in relation to our blog entry. They are related, but slightly different.

More links to SlimVirgin worries:

Hexrei adds a question to SlimVirgin's talk page, which, as per normal, she refuses to answer, has it deleted by her sock puppet Crum375, has it deleted a second time, then gets her sock puppet to ban them for it.

An anon IP also asked the same question, which again Crum375 deleted, and again blocked them for daring to write to her.

ST47 also asked the question, which was again deleted by Crum375, although at least they weren't blocked for it (yet).

Micpp also wrote to inform SlimVirgin of this news article, which naturally Crum375 assumed SlimVirgin didn't need to read, although they didn't ban Micpp (yet)

Sceptre also informed SlimVirgin of this, which was again deleted (sigh), and then ST47 (one of the ones asking the questions) decided to protect the user page!

Apparently this is also in the Administrator's Noticeboard too, however when I checked there was no evidence of it.

Okay I found the relevant links:

First ST47 wrote about this in the administrator's noticeboard, then added a bit more (which refers to Crum375 also deleting info off of their talk page).

Actually, as a side note, Crum375 also deleted something from their user page complaining about deleting bits from their user talk page! This led to a comment from Linas complaining about Crum375 protecting SlimVirgin's talk page, which Crum375 was more than happy to delete without responding to. They also added a second part, requesting for Hexei to be unblocked (see above).

Back on the admin noticeboard, Sceptre was complaining about the reverts to the user talk page from good users.

And then WJBscribe deleted the whole section from the Admin noticeboard!

Its not like Wikipedia users are suspicious at all that they aren't even answering questions, and instead are saying "Nothing to see here, move along", is it?

More comments in relation to this (not new stuff, just more on this):

Crum375 wrote to ST47 threatening to block him, ST47 defended himself, but Crum375 tried to pull rank on ST47 to hush him up, and ST47 insisted that Crum375 wasn't appointed as a "reverter". But of course, Crum375 insists that he was merely doing it to protect SlimVirgin's privacy. Ri-i-i-ght! So being published in a newspaper is an invasion of privacy? So why then isn't SlimVirgin taking legal action against these horrible people? Oh right because they aren't doing anything wrong!

Let's see if we can cover everything.

Great documentation of the cover-up process, Blissy. Also, a very good point about the absence of legal action. As Durova once communicated to me, if I had such a problem with her libeling me, I could always take her to court. Same goes for Linda Mack.

(Will that spelling help escape the WR redaction tool?)

Well done, Robster. I was starting to say to myself, "He didn't even get what I was doing," and then -- DUH ! -- your equally brilliant comment hit me.

Some lighthearted inane monologue, very interestingly reflecting group interaction now!

I am a bit lost as to where I found the link to Digg, but anyway here it is again.

There were 4 more on Digg, but they posted 500 articles per day in their blog (each) so I couldn't wade through them to find the correct ones.

And note that this is just on Digg.

when you see something notable please copy and paste it as well as linking to the difference things on wikipedia, THIS IS IMPORTANT as most things notable get oversighted - most of the links in this topic are no longer valid this would be fine if the stuff from them had been quoted (or screenshotted)
