We talked about this a bit here,
but it deserves its own thread. So the article is real nonsense (and please respect the suggestion I made here http://wikipediareview.com/index.php?s=&sh...ndpost&p=268175 and leave it as it is). But what explains it being nonsense for so long?
Someone called Rodney Shakespeare seems to be the main 'owner', and we are going back to 2007. Someone called Gene Callahan, who is a minor academic, complained about it then, but nothing seems to have happened. Roll forward to Jan 2011 where the owner has a long rant beginning here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Binary_e...ssed_one_by_one
It's not worth reading, the main point being the sheer length. This is the crank's main weapon - unlimited amounts of time and patience to ensure that their point of view is represented on the world's biggest encyclopedia. The rant seems to be prompted by Marek/Radek's placing an NPOV tag here http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...oldid=406986934. "Still a hopelessly POV proselytizing pamphlet after all these years - at some point might have to go to AfD with this whole mess". Don't do it Marek! You may get the boulder to the top of the hill. But then don't complain, otherwise some Wikipedian will point to those neatly piled boulders at the top, and claim how wonderful Wikipedia is. As soon as you turn your back, all those boulders will slowly roll back down again, and so it will go on to infinity. Just leave them. Write about it somewhere else.
Aha - Radek say "Honestly I have better things to do with my time - even the portion of it that is uselessly allocated to Wikipedia editing - than engage in pointless discussion with crazy people." Heard that before. What are you doing on the talk page. Now look what has happened. The useless Lar comes along, and agrees the tags are legit (boulder getting towards the top). And scolds you for calling crazy people crazy. LEAVE WELL ALONE.
And Shakespeare has helpers, of course. Someone called Captain Nemo, who only has six edits. And someone else called User:Janosabel, who is a proponent of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full-reserve_banking full reserve banking. I've heard of that.
