... All told, Connolley created or rewrote 5,428 unique Wikipedia articles. His control over Wikipedia was greater still, however, through the role he obtained at Wikipedia as a website administrator, which allowed him to act with virtual impunity. When Connolley didn’t like the subject of a certain article, he removed it — more than 500 articles of various descriptions disappeared at his hand. When he disapproved of the arguments that others were making, he often had them barred — over 2,000 Wikipedia contributors who ran afoul of him found themselves blocked from making further contributions. Acolytes whose writing conformed to Connolley’s global warming views, in contrast, were rewarded with Wikipedia’s blessings. In these ways, Connolley turned Wikipedia into the missionary wing of the global warming movement.
The Medieval Warm Period disappeared, as did criticism of the global warming orthodoxy. With the release of the Climategate Emails, the disappearing trick has been exposed. The glorious Medieval Warm Period will remain in the history books, perhaps with an asterisk to describe how a band of zealots once tried to make it disappear...

This is the IDIOT who has redefined Life As We Know It on Wikipedia-??!!?? LOL (I shoulda known.)
Here’s a quote I found from Jimmy Wales about Connolley:
“It takes a long time to deal with troublemakers,” admits Jimmy Wales, the encyclopaedia’s co-founder. “Connolley has done such amazing work and has had to deal with a fair amount of nonsense.”
This is academic fraud.
LOL...that teddy bear looks like it has been waterboarded and tortured to me.
When you go to Wikipedia now, they have a splash begging for money.
Those pukes lost all credibility a while ago. This is just the nail in the coffin. Hope they go belly-up.
Why else do you think that the socialists are so entwined within the Western Civilization Education Systems?
Thanks for posting this.
Thanks for posting this.
I'd love to know who has been financing Wiki until now, because Wales is currently requesting donations to keep Wiki going, ad-free
One reason why no college course I have taken allows Wikipedia to be cited as a Primary (?) or Secondary source.
Funny...yet most colleges accept the AGW myth carte blanche, which we know is sourced about the same way as the debacle over there at Wikipedia.
The lying tentacles of liberalism are everywhere. One has to remain vigilant. I would imagine the same goes for SNOPES.
He waterboarded his teddy!
“He waterboarded his teddy!”
Fricken Ice Flow Freak!
I had been warned on FR that Wikipedia couldn’t be trusted but I never dreamed it was this bad...
I’d hold him down and shave that mop-0-pubes with a rusty spoon!
Boy he was a busy guy.
Wikipedia is an incredibly useful reference guide and is no more, or less, biased than any other source of information. It is up to the user to do his own fact checking. Anything free is worth what you pay for it.
It’s incredible to think about this persons attitude to his fellow man. How incredibly stupid, and worthless he believes other men are. His self esteem must make it quite difficult to communicate without at some point a desire to knock the shit out of him.
I’ve met his sort before. No, I didn’t knock the shit out of them as I wanted to. I just left them to themselves. It seemed they were entertained.
