Renée is the new Rogol

It seems like just yesterday that Rogol Domedonfors roamed the earth, trying to drum up a little brigading, to disrupt the Wikimedia projects just for the sake of disruption. Who can forget his canvassing on some of the now defunct Wikipedia criticism sites?

I have posted comments at the wikimedia-l email list…  I do hope that independently-minded readers will find them sufficiently interesting to cross-post to appropriate other mailing lists….

Making them do something they had not planned to do, or do not want to do, or had never even though of, but feel they now have to under Community pressure, creates resentment, consumes resources and creates a generally unhappy atmosphere for debates over other issues….

Crossposting comments to WMF blog posts on these matters will also help publicity. If all those cross-posts link to the email of one particular author, that would look odd. Probably linking to independent but well-thought-out independent comments is the most helpful ….

For reference, the entire statement is here.

Ah, those were the days. My evil twin had to come over and help me air out the blog. And who can forget Rogol’s sock drawer?

On Aug 21 it was Reinhard.

On Aug 22 it was Rudyard, also Ronald.

On Aug 23 it was Rod.

And so on, Redmond, Reed, Reginald, Roald, Ruud, Roland, Rutherford, Rognvald, Roibéard, and Reid.

I had almost forgotten about that snakily worded RfC to get rid of Reliable Sources.

Rogol clashed with Kohs as well, and I thought that Gregory and I would finally find true happiness together in our shared antipathy for Rogol.  Sadly, it was not to be.  Kohs went on walkabout and hasn’t been seen since.

After Rogol disappeared in August, there was only boredom, until a botlike creature named Newsfeed took over Wikiediocrazy and posted one link after another that no one would comment on.

The mission of trolling the mailing lists and Wikimedia blog had been forgotten.  Forgotten, that is, until the September return of the natives, and with them new blood, and a new face: Renée…Renée Bagslint.

Renée has brought a new savoir faire to the art of hastening-the-day from within.

“So will you be posting these comment to the blog?  I realize that WMF may simply ignore comments they do not like, but it will at least accustom the blog editors to behaving in an overbearing manner and tend to poison the relationship between the WMF editors and its readers.”

How diabolically clever. Newbie Renée has magically stumbled onto both the Wikimedia blog and the mailing lists, as if by accident, and has even dipped a toe into the Wikimedia-l mailing list.

Rogol may have dropped the baton, but it looks like Renée has picked it up and is going to run with it.

  1. Why, thank you for your kind attention. I can only aspire to the original Rogol’s mastery of the lore of all ages, secrets of fire and light, gravity and countergravity, the knowledge of superphysic numeration, metathasm, corolopsis.
