With the deletion of the ProBoards forum, and the fact that the archives subboard will likely not be being populated any further, I've removed the forum.

All of the topics that were in the archives forum have been moved to the General Discussion forum.

Okay, at least they've been moved. It is a pity that we weren't able to grab ALL of the posts from the old forum though.... But we tried.

I think we need to make a Wikipedia Review wiki now, if for no other reason than to write what we agree were notable issues discussed here, some of which we didn't archive.

What happened to the old board anyways? It sounds like it was closed without notice and by force.

Igor pretended to step down as administrator but actually didn't. He was a Nazi, people hated him, he started spreading propaganda and pinning topics about jews, he banned like 15 people and so on.. to cut a long story short

then he closed the old one because we refused to give him sole administrator access on this forum (lol)

I did try to mediate, as one of the few major contributors to both forums who had nothing to do with the admin of either, but Igor wouldn't answer me.

He's gone back to posting on Stormfront now.

They use Wikipedia a LOT to support their arguments there:
http://stormfront.org/forum/search.php?query=wikipedia (or search by posts)

I have a spy account there (you can't even view members' profiles without registering, and user accounts have to be approved first) biggrin.gif

Wikipedia, Tool for Nazi Propaganda:

Some quotes from that forum:
QUOTE(celtickevin)

QUOTE(Retew)
There's a good wiki about antiracism but, knowing how you guys feel about wikipedia, I won't link to it.
QUOTE(Bob Whitaker of whitakeronline)
QUOTE(NoSugar)
The question is: would it be easier to produce chimp-negro offspring than chimp-white offspring?
I only just saw this post, but this is the most compelling argument i have ever seen for DELETING THE WHOLE LIST OF JEWS NOW[/url].. fucking nazis are using it.... as predicted by some...:

This is a great idea, but could be improved in implementation. As was said, you could leave it ambiguous as to whether it is from someone 'exposing' them or taking pride in them, I.e, a Jew. And most importantly make sure it is accurate, providing a source if their is any question.

QUOTE(Hektor)
Look what they write at Wikipedia about us:
Astonishingly they also gave a link to the web site itself!
There is also an opportunity for discussion on the Stormfront article at wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Stormfront_%28website%29
What do you think we should tell them there?!
QUOTE(friedrich braun)
German Wikipedia

IN YELLOW:
QUOTE
HINWEIS: Die Leugnung des Holocaust und ähnlicher NS-Verbrechen ist in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, gemäß § 130 Abs. 3 StGB – Volksverhetzung und § 189 StGB – Verunglimpfung des Andenkens Verstorbener, ebenso wie in verschiedenen anderen Ländern strafbar. Die IP-Adressen der Benutzer, die diesen Artikel so verändern, dass sie dadurch vorsätzlich oder mindestens grob fahrlässig gegen das Strafrecht verstoßen, den Holocaust leugnen oder die Leugnung unterstützen, werden aufgezeichnet und umgehend gesperrt.


If you deny the holocaust you violate the law and your IP will be logged.

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diskussion:Holocaustleugnung

Again, what are you people afraid of so much that you need to pressure governments into enacting these Stalinist laws? But you're afraid of the TRUTH, of course.

I just want to highlight this again, because I want to make sure that people in Wikipedia take notice:

Not quite sure what the point is here. The Jewish actors list was started by RachelBrown and enlarged mainly by Vulturell. Neither is Jewish and neither is a Nazi.
