Is Marc Bragg the asshole pissing me off ?

Perhaps, perhaps not.

Wikipedia account holder Msbjustice has been making a series of edits to that have been really frustrating me recently.

The evidence linking Msbjustice with Mark Bragg isn’t very much. Just linking to domains owned by a Mark Bragg and creating articles & edits that don’t do much else than promote Mark Bragg’s case against Linden Labs Linden Lab.

One of the things that really annoys me is the edits to a single article aren’t done in one go. Msbjustice doesn’t seem to know how to use the preview function.

Grrrrr.

Creating content that is biased and unsourced, reverting reverts to redisplay said content and creating articles about cases of unknown importance, removing the flag for proposed deletion on said article just smells of a big pile of bad crap.

Read the article, , then please take part in the discussion on the topic.

On one hand it might speed up the process for deletion of the article, on the other it might encourage the article to be edited to a point where it meets wikipedia’s requirements for an article and no longer meet the criteria for proposed deletion. Both are equally preferred outcomes compared to letting biased FUD roam free on the wikipedia.

    Making these sorts of edits to wikipedia could open him up for a slander suit. Either way it would certainly be prejudicial to his case against Linden Lab. If it /is/ demonstrably Marc Bragg, the only person he’s likely to hurt is himself.

    Just an update, I woke up this morning to find that Msbjustice had made a rather disturbing edit to the wikipedia article:

    The site promotes sexual activity with characters appearing to be minors, as well as numerous forms of beatiality in that now numerous avatars appear to be horses, and “furrys”, created and offered by Linden Labs, and some creatures may purchase penises that are suggested to be such genitalia from cats, dogs, and other animals. Numerous areas are designated as sex areas providing special avatar anaimations between avatars, whether they be human in form, furries, or other animals.

    I did of course quickly edit this bullshit edit to not be bullshit. Then followed a very frustrating, what I believe is called an “edit war”, consisting of Msbjustice making factually incorrect statements, making spelling errors, attempts to avoid having his articles deleted, as well as personal attacks against me.

    But what he wrote was true. Second Life does have such areas and practices. You do no one a favour by whitewashing this.

    The wikipedia is about verifiability, not truth.

    Doesn’t matter if what he wrote was true, without anything to back up his claims the statements violated WP:NPOV and WP:V.
