A very well explained reason for female privilege and how it is being continued, albeit now with contempt for the men who provide the privilege, rather than with gratitude and admiration as it was in the past.
Damsels are still in distress, now they are just ungrateful damsels.
Real time information about ‘anonymous’ Wikipedia edits is now available.
Very interesting, nice find BoingBoing!
I’m sure this will upset someone, but after all you have to have a thick skin for politics.
Politicians, the true enemy of humanity
The modern day cover up is too easily exposed, because you cant ever really delete anything from Wikipedia.
Today’s Wikipedia catch is Tom Waterhouse.
In February Fairfax reported that Occupy Melbourne’s official Wikipedia page was edited twice by a person using a City of Melbourne computer to remove contentious words in the lead-up to the re-election of lord mayor Robert Doyle last year.
However we would like to be recognized as the original source of MCC Occupy Melbourne edits story rather than the oblique ( self ) reference to Fairfax media.
We released it to BoingBoing, where The Age (Fairfax Media) picked it up.
But the question remains what happened to Richard Fosters Melbourne City Council internal investigation into who made the edits?
It’s now almost 3 months later and still no answers.
Clearly none of these people have heard about the Streisand effect.
All 4 episodes lasting almost 4 hours.
Describing the hijack of democracy via psychological control in the media in the 20th century.
Not only did she invent the idea of anthropogenic global warming in order to break the coal miners union, only to conveniently become a climate sceptic later on, she also put an end to a free milk scheme for primary school children which had been introduced in Great Britain post world-war 2. (I guess she made schools install coke machines instead?) and privatized absolutely anything she could get her hands on.
“She created today’s housing crisis. She created the banking crisis. And she created the benefits crisis,” he said. “In actual fact, every real problem we face today is the legacy of the fact that she was fundamentally wrong.(Former London Mayor Ken Livingstone)
Apparently she was Robert Doyle’s hero. Now that explains a lot.
For those who doubt Margaret Thatcher’s links to global warming, watch this:
(notice how she mentions “sacrifices”? The fist specific sacrifices were the coalminers wages and conditions)
A rose by another name could smell as sweet?
A number with other digits could smell as rotten?
It’s been just over a month since the editgate cyber war story broke out. The story first ran here, then picked up by boingboing, then the Age, then others.
MCC promised an investigation
to find out who did the Occupy Melbourne Wikipedia page edits. Any competent organization could have clarified beyond doubt what happened with their own IP address.
They could have shown what that IP address was normally used for:
If it was a library computer they would have had video footage of the user.
If it was a staff member they would know exactly who it was.
With the amount of time passed MCC has effectively admitted its guilt.
This clearly shows that:
MCC makes big promises when under attack, and then later on just scurries away to hide in a corner and hopes everyone forgets (and if they don’t forget, just edit history).
Robert Doyle: Guilty as charged.
The page itself:
So what has happened to the Wikipedia page in that time, well after a bit of edit ‘to and fro’ a Wikipedia editor ‘Amadscientist’ rolled in and basically junked the whole article.
Wikipedia stand on the neutral point of view (POV) principle. Wikipedia always demands sources from POV. But raises a curious question who had a neutral point of view? The main stream media who are often cited as sources clearly didn’t have a neutral POV, they were (and still are) simply a PR machine for the governments, corporates and banks that hand them press releases to regurgitate. THE very same Governments, corporates and banks we were protesting against. The typical activist won’t give their name to be referenced. This leaves exactly zero people with knowledge unbiased enough to make a meaningful statement.
We complained about 2 significant edits on a Wikipedia page: Wikipedia deletes most of the page.
Wikipedia currently has a project to ‘clean up’ Occupy related pages. Clean up in this case more closely means clean out. Because of this, the only memory people will have of occupy is gutted articles written using very biased mainstream media cited sources.
Remember Nick Carson with his 11,000 Wikipedia edits? Well about 1,000 of those edits were to his own Wikipedia page. When you edit your own personal page is that like stroking yourself? In the original story he was called to account over his lack of maintenance of the page. It seems has hasn’t heeded the call and still ignores the page. What an awesome contribution to society Nick.
He also claims Occupy Melbourne is dead, still refuses to allow the people fighting for it to have any input, still controls almost all of the media assets, uses the media assets for his own (and his cronies) personal agendas. More about those other agendas in coming articles.
We mention these rogues from time to time here, to make sure their crimes against democracy are not forgotten.
