Fucking Trevor comes out of his fucking bat cave

Trevor Fucking Bolliger (WMF)

Well well well. This is the first time I’ve seen a fucking WMF employee use the fucking F-word. And he’s in charge of – wait for it – the fucking half a million dollar grant from the fucking Craig Newmark Foundation for getting rid of toxic behavior on Wikipedia.

So what does has this Silicon Valley brogrammer Trevor decided?  The machine learning database from  Jigsaw and Research:Detox will not be used.  Already Trevor has spotted a false positive: “‘this constant vandalism is fucking annoying’ scores a 97%”   No, really??!!!!1!! How fucking annoying is that????!!!!!!1!!!!!!!!! HOW FUCKING DARE THEY.

Trevor also seems to think that calling someone stupid is just as toxic as saying they don’t know anything.  Well, I say that makes Trevor stupid.  In fact, I would say he is fucking stupid.  But not to worry, the admins will have bigly tools so they can be aggressive and powerful.


But wait, here’s another gem. Trevor, bless his little hands, thinks that “most (if not all) admins became admins because of their involvement in the content building/management.” And he thinks you can find this out by “browsing a dozen or so RFAs”.

Just for the record, Trevor has made zero contributions to the ‘pedia.

Okay, I’m going to give Trevor the benefit of the doubt here, just this once. For starters, we don’t know his original Wikipedia account, because he’s socking.  As he says in this little “fireside chat” video he posted to his user page on Wikia, his original Wikipedia account is “still locked”. All we have to go on is this account, linked to from his staff account. He’s only got 121 edits on enwiki, 64 on mediawiki, and 11 on Commons.  Also he has thanked 4 people, so he is moderately thanky.  He did write one article, about an album by his favorite band, so meh.   Only 80.7% of his edits are to articles, so that’s not a good sign, but with such a low edit count, it might be a false negative.  So, no street cred.

What about the videos he posted to his Wikia account?  You see a bunch of brogrammers sitting around a table talking.  Surprising to see, there are actually women in Trevor’s world, but do they ever speak?  No.  Why not? What is their story?

In Trevor’s world, women do not speak.
