I just wanted to let you all know that a complete version of the Jimbo-deleted debate over Cla68's AfD of the
autobiography of Gary Weiss is now available for you to read
This AfD was, of course, the event that elevated Cla68 from "model Wikipedian" to folk hero status.
I've taken the additional step of highlighting
the three comments that had the honor of being deleted even before
Jimbo deleted the whole thing.
Two were made by User:Powder Blue Tuxedo
(that was me), and one was made by our own User:Derktar
When asked, Jimbo said it's common practice for "discourteous commentary" to be removed from Wikipedia. I invite you all to scour the AfD for any signs of discourtesy and post them here.
Cla68 rocks the highest.
No admin at his back, no Jimmy to whip out, no posse' to thug about. He called the tune. He even came out on Register and sang it loud, proud, and is the hardest working man in the WP business.
That Cla68 is not an admin says that things are very wrong at Wikipedia, starting with the person that meatpuppet rallied down his RFA out of spite.
What I find the most telling on that GW AFD page is the dancing around by Mantanmoreland with replies to make it appear that the sockpuppet investigation that is being talked about by Everyking, Kim Van Der Rocks, etc, is about his accusers and not about himself. He even deleted diffs to make distort the context.
I changed my opinion on the hardest working man on WP. It's not Cla68, it's Mantanmoreland.
It's not easy dancing as fast as you can.This post has been edited by Piperdown: Thu 7th February 2008, 5:17am
