Clearing out a bunch of porn is something that Jimbo did right. He knew that Wikipedia was being mocked and looked down on over it and he took appropriate action. The trolls who put it up in the first place need to be shown the door.

I judge the individual action, not the person who may have a history of fucking up. A broken clock is right twice a day, so, if you continue to say it is wrong then you will be wrong every once in a while.

You really aren't going to convince anyone that nothing in my posts is worth reading when you run about plagiarizing them (albeit badly).

Regarding Tiptoety aka Tyler Van Wormer: Oh please. Tyler needs to have his priveleges taken away. He thinks he's so mighty, what with his power on a high number of Wikimedia projects, as well as being a police cadet.

I didn't actually say you were "wrong", I was just giving you a friendly heads up on why people around here add you to their ignore list wink.gif.

Despite the obvious similarities (e.g., spending years covering up for pedophiles and/or making life easier for pedophiles in order to "keep a good public face"), Jimbo is not the pope. You really don't have any duty to kiss his ring and preach his message on command, you know, much less any likelihood of a reward in the after-wiki-life. rolleyes.gif

While there are a lot of legitimate reasons to blame for Ottava being such an idiot his religion is not one of them.

Well, I wish more of them would because some of their responses are boring. ;/

By the way, that is a cheap shot. You are putting the wrongs of a few individuals upon others. Your actions on Wikiversity and the problems they caused are not the fault of Wikiversity or any other member.

Well Ok.

It seems to me that WMF has much to learn form the American and Irish Catholic Churches. The lay leadership in these Churches have overcome historic inertia and loudly insisted upon responsibility. Institutions like the Catholic Church and Boy Scouts, who have learned hard, painful and expensive lessons about child protection should be looked to as resources by WMF. At this point they have implemented rigorous safeguards and practices. But it is just the opposite on WP were the "laity", or the community, are the bulwark of irresponsibility and no child protective measures have been implemented at all. The saddest thing is that we know from these entities and their child victims is that it will take decades for the harm to come to light.

I never said that the three minorities reflected the billion people. I stated that they were not weak and powerless on either account. Now, if you want to say that my stating Muslims are not an oppressed minority is comparable to someone saying a few pedophilic priests mean that all 1.6 billion Catholics are evil, then that is absurd.

Ottava, I do not know you, we have never crossed swords and I have never said a bad word about you, we operate in different spheres ...

But I do wish you would

a) stay 'on topic', and
b) stop making quoting multiple quotes 4 or 5 deep every time you reply ... why should anyone have to scroll 8" to read something off topic or get to the next post.

Please look at the title at the top of the page and learn how to edit off your replies. Thank you.

Abigor is 'everywikipedian'. The solution is locking them and their effluence all up in a private world where they do not poison ours.

o.O

The most amount of quotes in quotes I have done is this and that was four. That was one time. Most are a quote and I cut out most (and I have gotten flack for trimming).

So generalizing from a small sample is cool as long as you put a minty-fresh positive spin on it?

Well, which is racist: Asians are smart or black people are lazy? Obviously, both are generalizations and stereotypes. However, one is positive and the other is not. It is just human nature to side with it being okay to generalize to the positive but not to the negative.

To achieve a comparable level of culture-baiting you might explain how Seung-Hui Cho, for example, was a true fucking genius.
