jimbo.wales: I wrote an email to the internal editors list about your entry recommending some changes, etc. I said that I would run it by you for clarification/comment and email again if there were any updates I think we have two major problems right now first, the timeline is wrong about the recent cop case... that is the worst error and easy to fix
me: what's that?
plus, they also say he was "cleared". not true.
jimbo.wales: second we exactly and correctly sigh follow the bias of the press
right, so I complained about this
for you, they decided not to pursue charges, for him, he was exonerated... this is bullshit and the truth is the exact opposite
jimbo.wales: right so the way it is told now, hang on a second
let's actually do this right no
because the last thing I want to do is take a break from fucking your brains out all night to work on your wikipedia entry
jimbo.wales: "In September 2007, on her blog Marsden wrote about and posted a picture of a counterterrorism officer for the Ontario Provincial Police with whom she had an affair. She claimed that he had leaked secret anti-terrorism documents to her, then posted email messages from him as evidence that he had been pursuing her, and sent to the National Post these along with sexually explicit pictures of him that she had received. She was investigated for criminal harassment for this behaviour, but was not charged. The OPP's criminal investigations branch cleared the officer of any wrongdoing."
so our timeline is wrong
(1) wrote about him on your blog
(2) posted email messages from him
(3) as a result he files harassment charges
me: exactly. it was a retaliatory complaint on his part that was launched 2 months after they initiated their investigation into his stuff.
jimbo.wales: but the correct timeline is
(1) wrote about him on the blog
jimbo.wales: (2) he files harassment charges
(3) you post email messages to show how his harassment charges are bullshit
me: you're a sh*tdisturber.
I only posted the emails after he went public trtying to create trouble.
NOT before that.
so we can get that sorted
and then this makes the story clearer
me: that's good of you to do. really.
jimbo.wales: ok so then the other thing is...
in my email I said, here are some thoughts about this, things that need fixing
and i may follow up if there are clarifications from her
but then I said I am recusing myself from it other than that
i explained that we became friends in IM and that I offered to give advice about your website and that we would be meeting about that
me: ahhhh so you qualified it, and left it "up to them".
jimbo.wales: and therefore not appropriate for me to directly edit the article with a conflict of interest
me: which usually, actually, works better than the alternative
jimbo.wales: the truth is of course a much worse conflict of interest than that
but that will do
me: aaaaaaaaahahaha. lol
jimbo.wales: well this is an internal mailing list of people who specialize in fixing this kind of stuff, so you are in good hands
me: awwww thank you.
how many people are on the list?
jimbo.wales: oh, huh
I have no idea.
me: hahaha so you told them the half-truth.
jimbo.wales: depends on what the meaning of "is" is
