And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
As “Wikipedia Sucks Badly And So Do Its Critics” fades into oblivion (and who can even pronounce that name with a straight face, much less in polite company over a glass of beer?) , the criticism movement has splintered even further.
First there is http://wikipediareview.proboards.com which unfortunately uses the same provider as the site that got taken down. So you can kinda see the handwriting on the wall with that one.
Then there is http://wikirev.org which is supposed be some kind of repository of old posts rescued from google cache. No one posts there of course.
Finally there is wikipediasucks.co which is basically Eric Barbour still hoping for his book, but with increasingly dated material. Barbour’s avatar is a poorly drawn penis, this time on a cracker. Somehow we doubt that anyone who would use an avatar like this has ever had sex.
So which sites are dying and which sites are alive? I can answer that. This humble blog has gotten courtesy links from all three: Wikipediocrazy, Wikipedia Sucks, and the gamergate reddit Wiki In Acton, so I can tell you the kind of traffic driven by each. The most traffic by far is from “Sucks”, followed by the gamergate reddit, which both were both able to drive about three times as much traffic as Wikipediocrazy. The gamergate kiddies are not too bright though, they are still trying to figure out what is a RS, so that pretty much leaves Wikipedia Sucks with a clear field.
Unfortunately, so far Sucks has done nothing but talk about themselves and each other, Their best effort so far has been to coin the nickname “Tedious Tim” which Carrite seems to think is a compliment. Meanwhile, Rogol Domedonfors, who can easily outdo Carrite in the tedious department, has, for the moment at least, found a home at Wikipediocrazy and is busy overshadowing Carrite with his
tiresome drivel “insightful analysis backed up by well-dcumented (sic) evidence supporting creative suggestions” ™ [source, ha ha] Nope I was right the first time, Rogol is even more insufferable than Carrite. Other than that, Sucks has managed to scrape together a quick enemies list. As yet, the list lacks notations, so the basis of the list is anyone’s guess, but some anti-gamergate names have turned up there, so it looks to be quickly shaping up as a boyz / MAGA clubhouse.
HOT UPDATE: Oooh oooh, Barbour’s avatar is apparently not just a male pee-pee, it is a male pee-pee combined with a poo-poo!!!1! How edgy is that!!!!1111!!!!
