Cade Metz isn't nearly famous or controversial enough yet.
Cade is one of the Antichrists of Wikipedia. If he was "notable", a BLP of him would probably be used as a personal attack piece.
He has the gall (the gall!!
) to criticize them, so his name is a curse word on WMF servers and IRC channels.
(Except in articles involving criticism of Wikipedia. Then, he's just another handy "critic".)
It's funny that Weiss bent over backwards to defame Byrne--all to no avail.
No doubt Weiss was being paid by someone to defend naked shorting.
If we're lucky, someday someone will write about the hidden story. So much arrogant stupidity.
as a commentor said after the Register article.....
The whole point of Wall St is that it's a casino for teenagers who refuse to grow up.
It's the world's biggest MMPORG, with the best conversion rate between fake play cash and real cash, and none of the high camp of WoW or Second Life.
It's all adrenaline and cortisol all the time. Screwing the system and screwing the customers in every possible way is considered a feature, not a bug.
If you pressure these people to act like moderate and rational adults who understand what consequences are, they'll call you a socialist and run you out of town on a rail.
