.... and obsessing endlessly over naming conventions for American cites and towns
. He seems to have no clue as to how big the USA is (hint: Australia has less population than Texas; the UK has about the population of California and Texas combined) or that we have place names a little more common than Woolgangaloonwibangzoom. I want to get in there and "just shut up, adopt the AP convention, and go away," but there's no point; no sensible decision can be made to stick without arguing at length from time to time.
There has been some suggestion from his "interests" that Jayjg, if a single person, is probably Canadian-- probably some appartment-dweller in urban Montreal. So yes, he has no clue as to how large the US is. Sure, Canada is large also, but most of the inhabitants there, as with Australia, live in only a tiny portion of the country (in Canada's case, a little strip bounding the US), so populated Canada is effectively much smaller.
The other possiblity is that Jayjg has spent most or all of his adult life in Israel, and thus really, really has no clue as to how big things are in the Americas.

And here we are again
! Fighting with people over Jewish-related articles...........
And he was doing so well. Mommy gotta spanky.
That liink does not work for me, but only puts me on the lastest ANI page, where I don't see Jayjg.
But yeah, since he was topic-banned I've seen him wandering all over the board, sometimes into my own areas of interest, being his usually literal and Aspie-ish self, except it's not about Jews or Israel. All of which has made me sorry that he's not confined
to editing about Jews and Israel. Be careful what you wish for.
