TDARCOS! READ THIS THREAD FOR FUCK'S SAKE

Post by Ice Cream Jonsey » Tue Jan 24, 2017 2:47 pm

We've been trying to get a hold of you for OVER A MONTH regarding the Hugo thing on Wikipedia. For some reason, you fart out your opinion on every other goddamn topic but the one we want you to post on.

What is YOUR TAKE on what happened at the end of the Hugo discussion on Wikipedia? Here is the link in case you need it:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia ... _language)

What it appears to me is that the following happened:

The originator of the delete request, Ramaksoud2000, is a fucking idiot that doesn't know anything. He recently got admin powers and it obviously went to his head.

A bunch of people show up in the discussion and say, no you stupid fuck, the Hugo article is fine.

Ramaksoud2000 can't handle it, argues with people (poorly, he was wrong about everything) and starts steaming because he's going to lose this one.

Ramaksoud2000, being a dumb fucking loser, also starts requesting "sock account investigations" but he's wrong about that, too. He is wrong about that because he is absolutely the dumbest and most worthless piece of shit on the Internet.

At the very end, another piece of human garbage, the user named "CZAR" claims ... I don't even know. "Canvassing" I guess he calls it. He does this 30 minutes before the decision is made by the "closer," because "CZAR" doesn't want there to actually be discussion because he's full of shit.

The "closer," whose account name is Jo-Jo Eumerus, is another fucking waste of space that sees a discussion with 6 people saying "keep it" and decides to delete/redirect.

So, IMO this is typical bureaucracy from Wikipedia. The people that spend all day on Wikipedia, like Ramaksoud2000, CZAR and the closer just tried to get over on the regular people with lives that actually know what they are talking about.

That is my take.

What is YOUR take. For the one time in the history of this BBS you don't need to limit or censor yourself. You know a lot about Wikipedia, I am interested in your opinion.

I had no idea you had any additional comments and it sounds like you are just as much an asshole as the guy who unreasonably deleted the article by ignoring consensus.

After 2, 3, 4 days and I don't say something and you know that I've been on here every day, it's obvious either I have no opinion, not even enough to say I don't have an opinion, or I didn't see it.

Considering what you know about me over the EIGHT YEARS I've been posting here, you should be able to guess which was the reason.

Next, i would find out what, if any, appeal process is available and if there is one, and use it. Get rid of your anger and argue in calm, rational terms that the process by the administrator who did it was arbitrary, capricious, and maliciously disregarded the consensus of the people who responded who agreed it should stay.

Wikipedia is a private organization and its administrators can pretty much do whatever they want.

But what you can argue is that this action was in direct violation of one of Wikipedia's core principles: Presume Good Faith. The actions as you have described clearly indicate otherwise since
* a single comment made 30 minuted before deletion being used to ignore everyone else (Wikipedia is not eBay; one user "sniping," a bid just before the deadline to delete at the last minute and over everyone else's dead body should not be acceptable practice.)
* one admin presuming the use of sock puppets without evidence (especially over a minor and - in terms of the relation of the subject to many other issues - relatively low importance subject),
clearly indicates bias, inadequate understanding of how Wikipedia operates, and lack of good faith.

Cool, I'm sure that everything you write in this post will be chock-full of interesting information and you won't come off as big an autistic zero as the spergs in that deletion discussion.

I am trying to remember the line by Buzz to Woody in one of the Toy Story films where he says something like, "You are not a nice person. May God have mercy on your soul." (It's not exactly that but it has the same effect.)

Right. I've let you shitpost here for 7 years and I am not a nice person.

Why don't you admit the fact that I am the only person who lets you stick around and be fucking appreciative of it for once in your life?

Unbelievable. He comes in here and destroys the place and I still let him post and he says I am not "nice." Well, I sure am fucking nice to you, dickcheese.

Exactly. You asked for my help and assistance. I first pointed out that when I didn't respond after 4 days it might have been a good idea to say something instead of waiting a month to do so.

Next, I posted some suggestions on what to do.

You then proceeded to insult me for making the suggestions by dismissing them as worthless or unimportant or that they wouldn't mean anything. Or dismissing me as worthless or unimportant.

I felt that dismissing my suggestions as worthless or dismissing me as worthless after you just asked me for my suggestions was not nice.

Will the bot only overwrite the posts he had written at the time the bot started, or does it re-query the database for new posts periodically?
Above all else... We shall go on... And continue!

Waitasec, I banned your account, you shouldn't have been able to reply.

Hold up... one sec.... OK, I guess it's a base by base thing. Frigging phpBB2.

OK. NOW you should be banned. I'm sorry it didn't work out. I don't actually have negative feelings toward you. I wish there was some way we could reach a compromise, but you can't reply to this, so I guess it will never be.
