Jimbo commented back in 2006 that the two sites he visits every day are:

QUOTE
I have Firefox setup with 2 homepages: my Campaigns Wikia userpage, and my English Wikipedia userpage.


Here we are in the very heat of a US presidential election showdown, and take a look at the content on Campaigns Wikia lately.

Looks like the electoral calendar of Indonesia is the real "campaigns" hot-spot! tongue.gif

Strange that Jimbo hasn't posted one electron of content to that site since September 22, 2006. He promised us in July 2006 that he was "wildly psyched about the campaigns wikia, so I plan to hang out here a LOT".

Funny how Jimbo could be "wildly psyched" about something, make it one of the two daily webpages he visits, then be completely DONE with it three months later.

What does this tell editors of Wikipedia about his long-term commitment to them?

Also, how telling was Jimbo's final edit to Campaigns Wikia:

QUOTE
:You are forgetting that this is a '''Campaign''' Wiki. The template allows people who campaign for and against us to add any information they have to the relevant category. You can't expect us to campaign for "paedophilia", because the majority of people will assume that we are campaigning to have sex with young children, which is not what this campaign is intended for.

::I have received no complaints about it, and I am not offended by anything. Check your premises. The point is, this is an extremely nonstandard term, and doesn't belong on the homepage. --[[User:Jimbo Wales|Jimbo Wales]] 09:21, 22 September 2006 (UTC)


Pro-pedophilia agents seem to infiltrate everything Jimbo's involved in!

JIMBO STALKED!!!

I like how he responded to your comments Greg.

He's such a baby. When his cabal of libelists attack someone, it is "free speech". When someone who's been attacked in said manner responds to him or them, it is: "stalking".

:::I never edit much, anywhere. You should check my Wikipedia edit count sometime. smile.gif And Greg, I know you are just here to insult and badger me, but I reckon there must be more productive ways to spend your life. You don't like me, I understand and accept that. If I acknowledge it, will you stop stalking me all over the Internet?----[[w:c:search:User:Jimbo Wales|Jimbo Wales]] 20:23, 31 July 2008 (UTC)



Boo-freaking-Hoo, Jimbo.

Chickens DO come home to roost.

And when those "homing chickens" crap on your doorstep, before complaining......

.... try to recall the truckloads of crap you've given license to your minions to "dump", all over the internet with top Google ranking.



Stalking you all over the internet INDEED.

Please.

He says on his user page that he wants people to edit it, but it usually is reverted and the editor blocked by Jimbo's right hand men.

Please.


I'm personally leaning toward something like: "Stalking you, Jimbo? You mean 'stalking', similar to how you went way out of your way to track down and interfere with the success of a business for which you yourself outlined its tactical business model? If that's what you mean by 'stalking', then yes, consider yourself perpetually stalked all over the Internet. In light of your more recent portrayals in the media, I reckon my efforts have been more 'productive' than you fancy."

Too blunt?

Simply notify him that you're copying Jimbo's bio to Knol, under editorship of G. Kohs. World invited to edit. Promise you'll treat the thing as repectfully as ordinary BIOs are treated on WP, not those of the God-king. Tell him the bio of Mel Gibson on WP will be your model, so there's no chance of foul play or sniping. Appropriate subarticles as needed, just as with Mel. No vandalism allowed. He's welcome to comment, just as he would if he were a peon on WP.

And there you are. Tell him to enjoy. As the FULL story of Jimbo's life, sourced and documented, it will surely eventualy reach a page rank on google better than the tasteless WP product.

I decided to go with my own retort, hoping that if maybe I spell out clearly enough for Jimbo, perhaps he will finally understand why I particularly loathe him (apart from the dozens or hundreds of other people who loathe him for their own particular reasons).


In case he or one of his Wikia sycophants zaps it...

QUOTE
Your acknowledgement that I don't like you serves me no purpose. What I would prefer is that you publicly admit to and apologize for the shabby treatment that you wrought upon me in early October 2006. That is when you reneged on a public agreement that you had made with me, whereby I could productively create GFDL content about businesses on my own website, without having you defame me on Wikipedia. You failed to live up to that concordat, yet you've never apologized for this egregious lapse of yours. It's rather amazing that I would have to spell this out for you. -- [[User:Thekohser|Thekohser]] 17:12, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Jimbo's quick response (from IP address 75.220.231.8):
QUOTE
Greg, you are just as free today to do that as you ever were, and I wish you well with it. And if the articles are good, then all the better. That you have had troubles at Wikipedia is unrelated to that. I am sorry that your troubles with the community have led you to such an anger with me that you are unable to let it go, but I can assure you that your life is not improved by fixating on me. I wish you the best and hope you will leave me in peace.----[[w:c:search:User:Jimbo Wales|Jimbo Wales]] 17:24, 18 August 2008 (UTC)



And my rebuttal:
QUOTE
That you would respond to an accusation of hypocrisy with another hypocritical deflection of your culpability onto "the Wikipedia community" is no surprise to me, nor to the dozens (or is it now hundreds?) of people who have figured you out, Jimbo. Between the date of our concordat (August 9, 2006) and your blocking my account and defacing my User page (October 5, 2006), I was working quite trouble-free as far as the Wikipedia community was concerned. No, what derailed my enterprise was your reneging on our agreement on October 5, 2006 and using my User page to write a screed against my company (which you've conveniently oversighted, so that nobody can see now how rashly and unethically you acted that day). My troubles with "the community" only followed that moment in time, and so were quite related to you and your decision. You failure to admit that obvious fact is testimony enough of your true character, Jimmy. I can assure you that your life is not improved by fixating on denying every rightful criticism ever leveled against you by anyone. I suppose in your mind, we're all crazy stalkers. You know who I'm talking about -- Larry Sanger, Seth Finkelstein, Giano II, Rachel Marsden, Danny Wool, Owen Thomas, Cade Metz, Andrew Keen, Kelly Martin, Jason Calacanis, Jon Awbrey, etc., etc. We're all just crazy stalkers who don't know the real, kind, gentle, honest, and ethical Jimmy Wales. -- Thekohser 17:47, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
