However, they are not hidden from automobile engines, including the newer, more "environmentally-friendly" electric and hybrid engines. Also, please note that this subforum is meant to be used for discussion of the actual biographical articles themselves; more generalized discussions of BLP policy should be posted in the General Discussion or Bureaucracy forums.

"Incoherent" is a massive understatement.

If so many newspapers are "celebrity gossip tabloids", then why the hell is Wikipedia cheerfully and
lazily using links to their website stories as "references"? Why is this even an issue, with an
"encyclopedia" that is now 10 years old? Because it's not an "encyclopedia". It's a gang of random
flakes beating each other up online. It's a forum, and a drug.

I found it to be anything but incoherent. He insulted Jimmy Wales quite lucidly and eloquently. (Not to mention calling Off2riorob a "yelping lap dog". I really liked that.)

Were you being facetious in using the "incoherent" bit, Peter?
