@davispg Yeah I think you might just have to catch up with the last 20 years there, though a useful word has yet to be replaced.

@XanderPlooy @triplejHack Oh, if I’d known the context, my words would have been different, but it’s no big deal given the overall context.

That last quote was a message from a @triplejHack listener, so J Q Random.

@crabapfel I don’t deny stuff shouldn’t have happened, but she writes from a position of outraged ignorance which doesn’t help her case.

I love Amanda Filipacchi’s doublespeak. Those removing promo stuff on her entry are “Wikipedia editors”, those restoring it “kind souls”.

via Janetter for Mac

@crabapfel Ah yes, that op-ed lumping’Wikipedia editors” into some sort of unified mind, and confusing anecdote with evidence of a pattern.
