So painfully obvious that it had to be done.

...How? From what I've read of the Siegenthaler affair, it almost seems as if the precedent would be in FAVOR of wikipedia.


What does that have to do with anything about how he would be percieved to the average wiki user? >_> Not to paint too broad a generalization, but the active wiki user's more than likely also a geek- and Thompson's declared war upon almost the entirety of geekdom. Well, actually, he's pretty much declared a one-man war against anything that he doesn't really understand. >_>

Hrm. Actually, I rescind my statement- he isn't a threat. He's a laughingstock. Thus the usual mob behavior applies. >_>

Which would be okay, if it was...you know, the right sort of stuff.

If he wants he can help me try to subvert and disassemble the entire emo subculture. I need somebody to sort of seem like a lawyer, because then it makes me seem all important and shady.
