The Third Law at work

Oliver Keyes of the Wikimedia Foundation doesn't like the fact that people have noticed his attempt to enforce SJW thought-policing on the R Foundation:
In which Oliver Keyes Sciences the Shit Out of the Arseholes on his Blog.

Every time you make a web request (with some exceptions we won't get into here) browsers send along to the new page or server the place you're coming from. If you click from here to this Wikipedia link, the Wikipedia request logs will show you came from my website.

Similarly, if you come from another site to my website, most of the time I can work out where that other site is. So I took the referers for people leaving comments. Then I turned them into human-readable text, stripped out those referers with fewer than 5 distinct users, and the results look a little something like:

suck it, MRAs

Unsurprisingly, Vox Day's readers are arseholes. Not just some of them, but all of them: every one of them who managed to painfully peck at their keyboard and hit save was a pillock of the highest calibre, contributing absolutely nothing of value to to the conversation.
But given that it is Mr. Keyes who is speaking of "arseholes", one should probably consider the source:
In a shocking decision today, the English Wikipedia's highest volunteer governing body, the Arbitration Committee, has defrocked a Wikimedia Foundation paid contract staff member, Oliver Keyes, for "conduct unbecoming an administrator, and for bringing the project into disrepute".

This morning, August 12th, the seventh straight unopposed vote to remove the administrator tools from Mr. Keyes was leveled by Scottish arbitrator, AGK. Recall, that Examiner reported several weeks ago that Keyes had uttered some rather crude and offensive remarks on Wikimedia Foundation discussion channels -- including a suggestion that another Wikipedia editor should be set on fire, and a recommendation that someone should stab a particular woman in the throat with a pen, then look on "as her attempts to wave for help got increasingly feeble".
This brings the Third Law of SJW to mind: SJWs always project. Which raises the obvious question: why is this guy still working at the Wikimedia Foundation? Does the Wikimedia Foundation endorse stabbing women in the throat?

I am sure his evaluation of whether or not the commenter was an "arsehole" was tooooootally scientific. If I disagree with you or don't like you, you are an arsehole, because science!

Because the source is the Examiner, so there's a good chance it's just BS

If the first person you run into in the morning acts like an arsehole, he's an arsehole.

If very in else you run into that day is an arshole... You're the arsehole.

This guy doesn't even rise to the level of "knowing your enemy". He's blindly tilting at windmills and crowing his defeat of giants.

Side note: probably also why his commenters from here have more children than the rest combined.

I made some changes yesterday, YIH, but the number still shows up for me in Chrome, Brave, and Safari.

Actually, most SJW seem to have a fetish for scat based on their vocabulary, so I should be careful...

At the beginning, I thought it was funny, but in retrospect it's just sad and unfortunate. This is like the JW or Mormon throwing a doorstep tantrum because people won't open the door. More to be pitied than laughed at.

Opened Chrome, got reminded why I despise Chrome (really sluggish among other reasons), but the numbers appear.
Haven't tried Brave yet, (the only Win version is 7 or newer) but knowing it's a variant of Chrome means I'll probably not like it.

From the second article, about Oliver Keyes:

"I'm Autistic, having Aspergers Syndrome, i have an IQ of 145, an Eidetic memory to do with sounds and am lucky enough to suffer from Bipolar disorder." That version of the page was later erased from the public record. He wanted so badly to become a Wikipedia administrator, that he underwent six failed requests for admin rights before finally succeeding on the seventh try. He doesn't seem to have any significant experience in engineering, software, or online user experience design.

And yet he managed to get himself put in charge of rolling out a major new component of the Mediawiki software. Which, of course turned into a complete disaster.

I didn't recognize that name at first. it's [ED link, NSFW] ''Ironholds''.
A real winner there, and Wikipedia had that asshole as paid staff?!?!
Yes, I know, Jimbo fired him, but still, as Bugs Bunny (Mel Blanc) once said, what a maroon.

Blogger YIH February 06, 2016 11:39 AM  

For those who don't want the NFSW stuff, here's the case against ''Ironholds'' straight from the horse's mouth.
Short version:
Ironholds desysopped

1) For conduct unbecoming an administrator, and for bringing the project into disrepute, Ironholds is desysopped and may regain the tools via a request for adminship.

I'm not sure, since I haven't updated Pale Moon recently here at home, and they're gone here too. But it's definitely Pale Moon related.
