Jimbo’s cunt count

jimmy-wales-wikipedia-chinese-watch-ad_largeJimbo’s talk page now has 43 instances of the word “cunt”, thanks to Arbcom’s latest gender fiasco.  But who’s counting.

In case anyone wants to know, 3,318 users have Jimmy Wales’ talk page on their watch lists.  When Corbett’s latest c-bomb hit Jimbo’s talk page, on October 21, the number of page views jumped from 300 to 2000 a day. And for the last twelve days, the users and administrators of Wikipedia have filled Jimmy’s talk page with the most vile and hostile language imaginable, directed at women.  That’s longer than the WMF keeps their fund-raising banner up.

But who’s counting.
