Vandaag een artikel van de Engelse wiki-celebrity Crowsnest over wikipedia’s Ombuds Commission. Powermod MoiraMoira van WP-Nl heeft er ook al eens een zaak laten dienen wat toen mede tot de jammerlijke neergang van de Nederlandse internationale stewards JurgenNL en TBloeming heeft geleid toentertijd. Kortom, een zeer belangrijk wiki-instituut.
De Heren van Eerbeek zijn er nog steeds bijzonder fier op dat wij Crow’s, zoals hij in de wiki-volksmond genoemd zijn werk mogen plaatsen op ons bescheiden blog. Wat een eer!
You may recall, way back in May, that the user BarryBogside posed an important question to the Wikimedia Ombuds Commission, the nominal privacy watchdog of the Wikimedia Foundation.
Barry had been concerned that Materialscientist had seemingly performed an illegal fishing check of his private data, over at the Bbb23 had been doing what, and for how long? scandal ridden sewer of corruption that is the English Wikipedia’s CheckUser Department of CheckUsering.
He’s just wanted a simple yes or no. As in, yes Materialscientist did perform an illegitimate fishing check, or no, Materialscientist did not perform an illegitimate fishing check. I am guessing Barry only wants to know, to defend Bbb23’s honour, since we all remember how, when they convicted Bbb23 of his high crimes, they claimed he had been acting alone, rejecting Bbb23’s defence that this is what all the English Wikipedia CheckUsers had always done, forever and ever, and that was why Tony B was so hopping mad at the suggestion they were just a bunch of mobsters with a badge.
After some hilarious back and forth where random wikishits disputed Barry’s concern as to whether it was fair or even legal for them to demand an email address from Barry before they would even let him pose such a question to the mighty O TO THE C G, they relented, and it appeared that yes, Barry’s case had been given a case number.
In the words of that oh so trustworthy sounding Ajraddatz….
Hello, thanks for raising this concern. We have opened an investigation (and did on 15 May 2020). We typically do not publicly post the results of an investigation, but we will discuss a mechanism for informing you of the result.
Fast forward to now, and after a query about the lack of O TO THE C DOUBLE G activity reports since March, we have this…..
14 cases left, 4 with motions to close in progress. If AGK doesn’t make some sooner I’ll probably do reports for the end of the term in Dec/Jan. – Ajraddatz (talk) 01:50, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
So maybe Barry will have a late Christmas present of Materialscientist’s Badge and Gun handed to him on a plate?
Or maybe not.
You know the motto of wikiland……WHADDA MEAN WHAT NEWS OF BARRY BOGSIDE’S COMPLAINT? WE ‘AIN’T EVER EVEN HEARD OF NO BARRY BOGSIDE! YOU BETTER GET OUT OF HERE WITH YOUR QUESTIONS BEFORE YOUR ACCOUNT SUFFERS SOME KIND OF ACCIDENT OF THE NOTHERE INVOLVED DUCK SURPRISE KIND. IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. Looks at Guy Chapman HE KNOWS WHAT I MEAN, RIGHT? Yeah Clyde, he knows, everybody knows
This is the real Ajraddatz, the one where he thinks nobody can see him….
Hi, I’ve blocked your account indefinitely here. Meta isn’t the place to re-hash issues from other wikis, your comments on talk pages have been entirely unacceptable, and I doubt you will ever have a legitimate, good-faith reason to be editing on Meta. Please use the established processes for requesting an unblock on enwiki; i.e. UTRS and ArbCom. Thanks, – Ajraddatz (talk) 21:14, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
And I’ve removed your talk page access after that tirade. – Ajraddatz (talk) 23:05, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
See how easy it is? Almost as if Barry was purposefully being meticulously polite. Because “Bernard Griffin” was coming to Meta with the exact same issue, a suspected illegitimate fishing check of his account at en.wiki, and after getting the same corrupt response from the local wagon circling Admins, came to Meta looking for an avenue of appeal, with the exact same concerns about being required to provide an email address before anyone in the entire wikiworld would even hear his complaint of likely privacy invasion. And he got the usual go sleep with the fishes shut out from none other than Ajraddatz.
Hey dickheads. Nothing is forgotten. Everything has a purpose. Sometimes you’re just that fucking stupid is all. Why don’t you all just get a job more suited to your talents, and leave the encyclopedia writing to the experts? You damn dirty apes.
