Yes, I know it's a Bad Thing posting a link to an attack page on WR etc etc, but a) it's already been mentioned at ANI and b) I have never heard of any of the people involved and couldn't care less about the content dispute that's apparently sparked it.

This has got to be the most impressive personal attack ever posted on or about Wikipedia. It's rare that I see something on Wikipedia that leaves me absolutely astounded, but that does the trick. To Awbrey et al, I think the bar just got raised.

As an original Kiplingesque ballad combined with an arbcom-esque set of easter-egg diffs and cites, it's frigging brilliant! I'd never before heard of Nishidani, but he/she/or it is clearly way too smart not to get into trouble on Wikipedia, eventually.

[Looking...]

Oh, I see Nishidani has fallen afoul of the Kabal that protects the Israel/Palastine conflict articles. Figures. unhappy.gif And (if I may say so) bound to happen.

How nice.

Please do not attack other editors. If you continue, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Your personal attacks, such as this, against Jaakobou, are unacceptable. Even if you honestly believe the statement, which I don't consider supported by the evidence, it's inappropriate. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 16:54, 22 November 2008

QUOTE
Stop attacking an other user's talk page with insults, if you do not want to be blocked forever i would suggest that you let it go and forget it. I saw what happens to wiki-stalkers and you don't want that to happen to you, no one wants it. Elbutler (talk) 21:46, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

My, my, my. One can almost hear the violins in the background. yak.gif

Looks like it all started here.

Another fine example of pointless, worthless drama. It's just too easy to set off the Zionists. And yet, Jaakobou, the guy Nishidani was criticizing, is also threatened with sanctions. And Postlethwaite jumps out of the woodwork to throw in his stupidity.

"Encyclopedia" my ass. (for the thousandth time.) Great poem, though.

Of course, Jacina or friend (hi there whoever you are) must have gone to this site to know of this thread. Nevertheless they have failed to notice that this thread was started after No Calton had gone to AN/I.

It gets better. I don't know who Nishidani is*, or who's in the right and wrong on this particular dispute, but this guy/girl's talents are truly wasted on Wikipedia.

*Poetry and Jewish biographies? I'm sure someone else had those interests, but I can't quite recall who it was... (Note before someone starts throwing accusations around: No, I don't actually think so for one moment.)

biggrin.gif If I thought Baxter was that talented, I'd be among folks aggitating for him to be allowed back on WP under his own name. But I saw no sign of much creativity among his many accounts both here on WR or on WP. Alas.

This guy does a dead-on Kipling. He must read him for breakfast. I'm tempted to ask him for a sestina, just to see what he can do.

Now, other people seem to be reading here too. An anon account based in Britain has just referred to him as No Calton too.

Nothing to see here – he's been referred to as "No Calton" since January. Although there are at least three links to this thread on WP, so I'm sure everyone involved is reading this.

I was going to go read, but I'm afraid I'll step in another pile of Rodhullandemu.

I've done a double dactyl on-wiki, some quatrains, and my long piece last April Fools Day, but I don't think any of them will be reprinted in a greatest-poems-of-the-decade collection. A few months ago, I tried to compose all of my RfA supports in rhymed couplets, but it didn't catch on.

(For wiki aficionados, which is admittedly stretching a long way away from the purpose of Wikipedia Review so I'll be brief, the best rhymed piece I've seen on or about wiki is the RfA candidate parody of "Modern Major General" by Bucketsofg.)

In the North African campaign when Germans were captured, of course they had to endure parody courtesy of US troops singing Donald Duck:

Are Ve not the supermen
Aryan pure supermen
Ja ve ist der supermen
Super-duper supermen
Ist this Nutzi land not good?
Vould you leave it if you could?

Ja this Nutzi land is good!
Vee would leave it if ve could


You know, when Theodor Seuss Geisel joined the Army in 1943, be became commander of the Animation Dept of the First Motion Picture Unit of the United States Army Air Forces. And I'm sure he saw this Disney film, and I'm sure it had a big impact on him. Because I can hear Dr. Seuss in there already. wink.gif

Looks like it all started here.

It started for real here. Jaakobou has been hounding Tiamut for ages, Nishidani has tried to defend her, himself getting "warned" and chased off WP instead.

And his writing.... I think it was User:G-Dett (another great writer!) who called his writing for "verbal chandeliers". Two of WP´s better writers, and both of them are more or less chased off WP by the pro-Israeli/JIDF-lobby. unhappy.gif

Heh. I am quite sure Nishidani knows nothing about statistics tongue.gif (He know quite a lot about Japan, though.)

Timezones suck wink.gif so I rarely check times/dates on stuff.

Still I knew NoCal wasn't coming from here, I also know he must have been stalking (or wikistalking)

The amount of times I go through a user talk archive ... well I think I did it once before /shrug.

Good, in that case, I can just say that Jaakobou and NoCal100 are obvious dicks and should get a life.
Rodhullandemu should be slapped with a noodle whenever he tries to write "poetry". (And at other times.)
And Nishidani is an awesome, cool editor.

Please Nishi, come to WR and grace us.
