Someone seems to have created a BLP of [[David Shankbone]]. User Huckandraz formerly seemed mainly interested in New York City artist [[Judy Rifka]].

No comment, just pointing it out.

Well, it was just a matter of time - they've let him get away scot-free with everything else imaginable, so why not that too? In fact, why don't they just rename the site "Bonerpedia" while they're at it? It would be more accurate, at least.

Still, I don't think he belongs on the Fordham Law School Alumni List if he didn't actually graduate, does he?

I don't think you need to be a graduate to be an alum. Alum just means you went there. Could be wrong.

You don't suppose the article will be a magnet for ... drama?

Nah, what am I thinking.

As for "alumnus", I think any institution accepts anyone as alumni who ever went there, even for a day. They want contributions from wherever they can get them.

Admittedly, there are a few definitions on the web that would include "former students," but the vast majority say "graduate."

Anyway, it doesn't matter - it's Wikipedia, so Shankers will get whatever he wants, as usual.

How long before Shankers starts editing the page himself, and turns it into even more of a vanity than it is already?

I think the "Huckandraz" person, who is probably not the Little Rock, AR person to whom huckandraz.com is registered, actually knows him. http://myspace.com/huckandraz is the Myspace page of a 32-year-old woman who, like David Shankbone, is from Brooklyn.

Significant problems as per WP:RS -- too many references from no-no blogs (including one from Michael Lucas and several from Mr. Miller himself). The article would make for a lively AfD -- the case that an amateur photojournalist is notable won't wash with many people.

Funny that the article doesn't mention some of the juicier personal stuff that Mr. Miller freely talks about on his blog -- not the least being his extreme lack of sexual activity (I guess those Michael Lucas poolside parties aren't as amusing as we would like to think).

I like the citation for "his work has appeared in the Encyclopedia Britannica" being a link to - um - a google search, which in turn leads to some self-uploaded photos on their user-editable section. Kind of like posting a comment on the White House blog and claiming to have been quoted by Obama.

Have you ever read his blog? He comes across as a very sad character -- incredibly insecure, with significant family problems (including a lousy relationship with his father that he has detailed in depth) and no focus on what he wants to do with his life. For a man of his age, it's pretty embarrassing stuff. Outside of his Wikipedia snapshots and shilling for the Israeli government, he's never accomplished anything.

wacko.gif His name is David Miller. He is from Brooklyn. He is gay and a drama queen and likes Fire Island. He blogs and gives us WAAY too much information. yecch.gif He spends his time promoting the cause of Zionism with his gay Jewish entertainment industry friends, one of whom has a Fire Island house ermm.gif

Surprise, David gets away with too much crap on Wikipedia, due to the connections he's made there.

Talk about gilding the lily! This overloads a wiki-abuse stereotype so badly that if I made it all up, you'd accuse me of doing too little work and not using my imagination!

But may I point out to the newbies here, that we've seen this all before. It's not that there's anything particularly evil about any of this stereotype, per se. In many ways, I'm a stereotype of another cut, as are we all. I'm just pissed that one particular mind-set of people gets away with anything they like on Wikipedia, and everybody else stands in line to be kicked.

The bicoastal liberal urbanite metrosexuals have long taken over at Wikipedia. Encouraged by Jimbo, who evidently grew up wanting badly to belong to this cultural class, which he was NOT born into. Which aspiration, we can recognize by his present location and past wine-bills, if nothing else. wink.gif

As for citizen journalists interviewing sitting heads of state, I think this may have been done before in the past. Shankbone would not be the first to do so.

Who is "Heroic" here interviewing the Premier?

More emphatically, what about Leonardo DiCaprio doing an interview in 2000 with President Clinton?

And let's not forget Lady Cook's interview with President Teddy Roosevelt in 1907.

But, then, I could see the debate centering on what it means to be a "citizen journalist". Is Leo DiCaprio not a citizen journalist because he derives a steady income outside of journalism and never strives to pursue journalistic activities on a regular basis? Do we really mean "amateur" journalism, since every journalist is a "citizen"?

I think this is a silly reason to hang a Wikipedia article's survival in the balance. I once shook hands more than 5 separate times within 5 minutes with former President Jimmy Carter. Do I get a Wikipedia article, or would that not count for anything because Carter was not a "sitting" head of state at the time?

Meanwhile...

Also, something tells me this particular article isn't likely to contain a "Criticism of..." section any time soon.

Hey, you are right, loads of it seem to have disappeared without even a trace in the logs, such as, e.g. 'The_making_of_an_adult_film_by_David_Shankbone.jpg' series. The topic is a bit lacking in gay interest, isn't it?

There must have been 'behind the scene' discussion about all those 'scenes of behinds'. The page really needs another dick on it ... glans.

It seems Jimbo had a lot deleted back in January, and covered for Shankbone, when the Pee-dia landed on the Australian Communications and Media Authority blacklist. Sexually explicit images were featuring three men including ... guess who ... Michael Lucas having anal intercourse. Shankbone told Wikinews that he had "no comment for this story." I wonder if our discussion is having yet another a positive effect on the Pee-dia. Matt Barber, a constitutional law attorney and policy director for 'Concerned Women for America' was leaning on the Department of Justice and the U.S. Attorney's office.

You could always upload some for him again from Freebase or elsewhere: here, here or go for the full portraiture of ... male anus. And the pissing goat series is still there. Arguably, on the basis of my recent Wikipedia research, that must include two kinks; zoophilia and urolagnia, and speaking of zoophilia, other of his work might appear under pseudonyms such as I Smell Beaver or Lucas Entertain and god knows what other sock accounts?

If you want a reminder of his best work try the pure genius evidence of ... The Taint. Original version, here.

I guess Jimbo sees it good for him to have the word Pee-dia flaunted around all those picture taken VIPs.

Surely, his greatest notability lies in the homeless woman tampon incident aka "Is my tampon showing?".

What "Sexy David Saranga" hanging out at hard porn director Michael Lucas's Fire Island villa?

Well, that's outed Israeli Consultate media supremo David Saranga then ... he of the 'Women of the Israeli Defense Forces' soft porn editorial and financier to 'David Shankbone Mediterranean Holiday Fund, LLC'.

Doncha just love it when all the Conservatives' prejudices about gays and Jews corrupting the morals of America all collide together in one weekend's cruising up on Fire Island?

Slim's a joy to the community, isn't she? She know the rules - she wrote them didn't she - and yet cruises over a whitewashing of a self-penned autobiography whose only references is the man's own personal blog. So it really only a public show of powers ... as she goes on to play ping-pong reverts on a WP:COI allegation and tag teams with Benjiboi who is outed for "shilling for other Lucas COI editors" and "having his own COI with Michael Lucas". It was Benjiboi that moved Michael Lucas (adult film director) to Michael Lucas (director) after Shankbone initiated its move from Michael Lucas (porn star) - Michael Lucas (adult film director).

In 2006, I left Fordham Law School one year short of graduation. I had missed a few credit card payments and could not qualify for student loans. The school would not help, so I returned to life as a paralegal. My sense of failure and financial devastation drove me to the verge of collapse
.
I mean, my English language interpretative skills are poor but wasn't it his screw up over finances and failure to find more that were traumatic rather than "Fordham"? Poor dear ...

Meanwhile, here and here: Shankbone as WatchingWhales keep on with the Lucas Entertainment PR.

Of course, wasn't it Slim that remind recently us that sockpuppeting and WP:COI were not necessary offences at all ... unless, I presume, they were being done by someone that was opposing her.

Which bring me to the best laugh of the day ... pure genuis.

Penguin/Plume Books has very graciously offered me this opportunity to blog for a week on their site. I believe I will be unvetted (we'll see). To their mistake, I intended to add my own.

Before my wise editor got a hold of it, it was not brief, and I though to unload the whole story of my childhood, and rational for writing a new work by Shakespeare (I took apart all the known works and put them back together as a new tragedy), right here, for half a dozen people to see.

Perhaps someone would like to mention at the AFD that Adam Rose, who wrote the Shankbone piece in the Columbia Journalism Review, did so as an intern there. That would be why his contact email on the CJR article is one from nyu.edu. Just saying. Also, this item on Rose's blog has an interesting but likely coincidental connection...

Imperfect subjunctive. All together again, class, since the Jesuits are not pleased. If only the Jesuits were pleased. Utinam Societatis Iesu commodo erant. No, that means all of them, stupid! angry.gif

Given there have been pictures of the Mayor of London and myself shaking hands in dead-tree newspapers, should I have an article? laugh.gif


Indeed; especially considering that David himself wrote that Wikinews page.

But not this one. I think Shankbone would be wise to ask for the bio to be deleted, but I'm sure he's enjoying the show in the meantime.

Although Benjiboi's "duck test sniffer tells me this was created as a way to harass him," I think most clueful people suspect otherwise. The creator of the Shankbone bio was User:Huckandraz. Huckandraz seems to be connected to [[John Reed (novelist)]] and related subjects, as does Shankbone.

Shankbone loves attention which is why it's best just to ignore the pratt. stupid self aggrandizing twat.

Hmmm, the AfD looks like a No Consensus, with a heavy Keep element fueled by academia's answer to the Keystone Kops, the Article Rescue Squadron: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Art...David_Shankbone

Let's all join hands and pray that Stifle shows up at the end of AfD, ignores everything that is written, and deletes it. (It's happened before, of course.)

Technically, a borderline BLP with no-consensus should default to "delete".
Cock-up-over-conspiracy
Just following up on the general silliness of this David Shanbone, his exploitation of the Wikipedia online encyclopedia for personal advancement, and the Wiki-elite support of him ...

• Over here, on the Administrators' noticeboard David Shankbone has a hissy over editors naming Israeli diplomat David Saranga on his snapshop taken at Porn King Michael Lucas's home alleging a Wikipedia Review conspiracy.
QUOTE
Howdy everyone. The subject image is not used anywhere in Wikimedia, yet its history shows that it has been very controversial. Recently, the Wikipedia Review has launched a harassment campaign related to me that 1) tried to have me topic banned on Wikipedia; 2) blacklist my blog; and 3) edit-war over this photo. Through OR on the Wikipedia Review a person in the photograph is being identified without any evidence ("looks like him"). The edit summaries are full of accusations against me, OR and BLP violations. Could someone please protect the image to remove the OR?

• Over here on Wikimedia Commons Shankbone scweams and scweams ...
QUOTE
(Undo revision by Proabivouac the person is unidentified, and you do not know their identity beyond speculation, which makes this OR and creates BLP issues)

• But over here, on English Wikipedia is the exact same snapshot uploaded by Shankbone with Israeli diplomat David Saranga clearly named.

Credibility ... moi? What is credibility when one can have celebrity instead? Give the man his own Pee-dia page now!

Lucas has mean while obviously been taking lessons in diplomacy from Saranga on Fire Island given his inspired letter to the US president.

Lucas sent a letter to US President Barack Obama following the Canadian Border Services Agency's refusal to allow shipments containing DVDs of Lucas Entertainment's 'Farts!' and 'Piss!' to cross the border on the grounds that disallowing gay porn shipments into Canada could harm both countries' economies. I had no idea it was such a moral and high brow milieu.
QUOTE
Dear Mr. President:

Farts! and Piss! were seized by the Canadian Border Services Agency and deemed obscene according to their (and in my opinion, antiquated) decency standards.

There are a number of issues here that concern myself and international trade, and I believe you are the only person who can rectify this situation at this moment in time.
 
Since you will be meeting with the Prime Minister of Canada today, I urge you to make what I detail below an item on your agenda, if it is not already a topic of conversation. I know that one of your points of discussion will be coordinating our nation's economic stimulus plan with Canada's. 

Farts! and Piss!, just two of the productions that were denied importation into Canada, are highly successful titles from my Lucas Raunch line. Both have gone on to be among my best sellers in 2008 ... Piss! is also nominated for a GAYVN award for Best Fetish Video ...

Sincerely,

Michael Lucas

No, it is not dated 1 April. More related dirt digging documented here on a blog called Wiki-Hell.

"Nobody goes to Israel for Golda Meir, I'm so sorry," Lucas said in heavily Russian-accented English. "People don't care that you have a great orchestra, and they're not particularly interested in the Holocaust museum. Gay people, and straight people, want beautiful beaches, beautiful nature, beautiful men and women, good food, good hotels ... They need me."
