Appears to have been oversighted already. Dang, I've got to be more on the ball than this!
They didn't oversight this bit, which is still in the history:
This is truly outrageous, even for Wikipedia. Elonka Dunin, an administrator, draws the line when the subject of an article "gets upset?" How utterly fatuous and hypocritical, not to mention at cross-purposes with what Wikipedia claims to be. Matthew Sanchez is a public figure, by which I mean to say that he has willingly injected himself into an issue of public note. Johnson's site contains verified facts about Sanchez. The so-called "hate site" operated by Charles Wilson also contains facts, along with negative commentary on those facts. In Dunin-World, it is "hate" to express a negative opinion about someone she likes, but not "hate" to tell lies -- up to, and incuding, prima facie libel -- about someone she doesn't like.
Wikipedia's article, and the surrounding discussions, contain a series of anti-gay slurs authored by Sanchez, and specific attacks on individuals, including a libel against Wilson. This libel -- that Wilson has AIDS -- is also one that you, Ms. Dunin, have repeated in backchannel conversations with Sanchez, along with other unfounded accusations. Yet, you come here and chastize Johnson on "ethical" grounds? Have you no shame whatsoever? By what set of mental gymnastics do you claim that the rules apply to everyone except yourself and those you have decided to take under your wing? Where is that Wikipedia "pillar," Ms. Dunin? I want to see it.
Ms. Dunin, do you deny that you've made these statements about Wilson? Please, make your denial. But be careful as you do so, because everything you've written has been archived. Any denial you make is going to be blown clear out of the water by your own words. Which, so you know, I have decided to pass along to Wilson along with a mountain of other information about Sanchez that renders this discussion about the man's background and current activities quaint. I've asked Wilson not to publish it for the time being, pending the outcome of this proceeding and some other ones. But, at some point, I'll release Wilson to do as he pleases with the information I have gathered.
Then, Ms. Dunin, we will all find out exactly -- in your own words, faithfully reproduced -- just who has been operating a "hate site" and who has been "unethical." And won't that be interesting! Tennessee Jed 4415 (talk) 15:28, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
Note the use of the term "injected" - it sounds like this "Tennessee Jed" feller has been taking JoshuaZ lessons.
I'm not sure what to make of this. If Sanchez wanted out of Wikipedia completely, I'd say let him out, but if he instead wants to make sure his article only says what he wants it to say, and all the while he's been making public slurs against gay people, and hanging out with Ann Coulter to boot, while trying to hide the fact of his own background as a gay porn actor?
I dunno... the whole thing just seems kinda... yucky.
