Let me know when the two of you with zero accomplishments in life and no credentials to share are done.


You see, exactly my point.

Just because you don't see us shouting to the world about our accomplishments you are so up yourself that you believe both that we have none, and if we did then they would be less than yours.

My comment still stands.

And your sub-thread is taking us further off-topic. If a mod would like to split this little tête-a-tete into the Tar Pit, or perhaps the Whine Cellar would be more appropriate?

Hey, a 17 year-old is more qualified than an accomplished professor in his field. I know this becasue Jimbo said so!

Dang, you're right, Rhindle. I always forget this because I work in the real world, where I've never seen a 17-year-old outperform a college professor. I have to remember that when I'm online, it's different. Online, the upper hand goes to the Pokemon card-trading, Xbox-playing, pedophile-supporting, Python-code-writing dude who knows the best vegetarian food cart on campus.

Credentials be damned! I am a new man. I see the light!

I know nothing of Cunning Linguistic's accomplishments. I know mine; those who matter know too. Thus I am satisfied and have no need to boast.

Have you not indeed? I have seen a 16-year-old play piano better than a professor of music.

I cannot recall. But anyway, if a professor makes a mistake and a 17 year old correctly points it out, would it be right for the professor to say "99.9% of the time I know better than you, therefore you have no right to correct me the other 0.1% of the time"? That is the height of arrogance and rudeness, and no professor I have studied with would ever give such attitude.

if your real name is Guy Chapman, UK expert on cycling helmets and male opera composers, then I would know that your advice is likely driven by personal vendetta, not earnest guidance.
No, I am not this Guy Chapman. I concede that I from time to time ride a bicycle and enjoy Russian opera (which is largely male in that most of the leading characters are male), but these details really are irrelevant.

So, how do you feel about giant boobs? biggrin.gif

....and by saying that Wikipedia Review is "dedicated to undermining Wikipedia in any way possible" and asking me how many blocked accounts I have on Wikipedia.

To which you respond as follows:

Wikipedia's two top editors, Rich Farmbrough and Justin Knapp, have both been blocked numerous times. For a variety of reasons, some valid and some just pissy. And neither Farmbrough nor Mr. Knapp has changed their bot-editing activities substantially in response to these critiques. Frankly, after looking at their work, I can only conclude that both of them are thrashing Wikipedia articles for their own perverse needs, and have no interest in actually writing or improving content.

And how does that bullshit "help" the mighty Wikipedia?
