It's been deleted now but it not-too-subtly accused WAB of being conservative-dominated and M21 in particular of disseminating false information.

I wouldn't count on that article remaining on Wikipedia for long.

There used to a WAB entry there but it was recently deleted for lack of relevence.

Heh...a difficult one.

Not many people walk away with a whole lot of assss left after they instigate me or challenge something that i'm strongly voicing an opinion on.

In those cases when i'm wrong...i admit it.

I also back the snot out of my arguments with expert types whenever possible, or i try and put out all the linked data.

Predictably, the people that challenge me and get asss stomped tend to hold a grudge sometimes.

Not my fault. :biggrin:

Heh, and i never saw it.

LOL...

Hehehe...

I remember what you're talking about and I don't believe that the tread was trashed.

Basically a disgruntled WABer (can't remember which idiot it was) went into the first Wikipedia article and vandalized it, claiming it (WAB) has a strong right-wing bias, led by M21Sniper and aided and abetted by the Moderators, whom he listed by name (this was also back before Julie stepped down).

I went in and restored the article to the previous Save and it was pretty much undisturbed until somebody nominated it for deletion due to lack of relevance.

Probably what will happena again sooner or later. :frown:

Dunno :frown:

I'm trying to do a search based on thread titles rather than content because Wikipedia is used so much for reference quotes.

I searched titles for WAB, WIKI, Wikipedia, Famous, and World Affairs Board.

It's probably buried in the general forums. I'll see if I can find out the idiot was and trace it back from there.

<--------------points to post count. LOLLol. I searched M21 in titles, but it didn't come up.

It might have been lost in the crash, when the forums were all mixed up for those few days. I lost a few posts back then too.

Well, Tophatter, if you find it, please repost it to this thread- it really was funny.

Some old timer could give the history of WAB on the site.

It is just a few general statements as I just googled it.

I missed out on the reference to Snioer.

That's the one!!!

Good sleuthing job, Parihaka, I was afraid it was lost forever.
The WAB has also been criticized for being a poor source of factual information, especially regarding gun control, global warming, health, and domestic policy. The dominant user is M21sniper, a former US Army sniper with over ten thousand posts and the wide respect of the forum. However, he has dispatched false information on dozens, if not more, occasions.Bahahahahahaha.... :biggrin:

We really should put it back on Wiki, lol.

together, the six 'mods' have banned numerous liberals, keeping the forum dominated by conservatives.

I gotta agree here - after all, TopHatter did have me banned on my first day.

I remember that twit. I believe about oh...every 3d poster at WAB pile-drove him on his ridiculous views on guns.

I'm trying to remember if that's the same guy that pretended to be a DEA agent too, who 'as a police officer' had the 'real scoop'. The clown that i caught, confronted on IM, forced to admit he was a fake, and then who went on to state that 'they were a member of an anti-second amendment group that prowled message boards and whose goal was to rid america of guns'- or some ridiculous nonsense like that.

Same guy?

LOL, i shoulda known...

Well, i guess taking the fall is a character builder and chance for personal growth, if they can take me alive. For as they say(well, i say it really), that which does not kill me had better run.

Fast.

Damned fast. :biggrin:

I do have to give credit to THL, who knew something was definitely wrong about our "female" medical student. :redface:

WAB (world Affairs board) often presents every story in a neo-conservative manner and is affiliated with neo-conservatives worldwide paricualr Indian members of the hinduvata parties.

Nobody from the WAB that I can get a lock on though.

You know, he (she?) actually started out pretty reasonable, apart from starting remarkably random and boring threads. I was kinda sad when she (he?) turned out to be a troll. Especially since it cut the # of the fair sex on the board pretty drastically. :frown: :biggrin: But the Wiki article was hilarious.

K I took it upon myself to expand the article a bit by elaborating on the membership and issues we more frequently discus, I mentioned the fact that we have a lot of Indo-Pakistani members who discuss their respective bilateral relations, I thought it best to leave out the part about the Great Flame Wars, if the mods have an issue with my including this at all then feel free to take it out, or I'll do so myself. I would imagine no one has any objection to me detailing some of the sub-forums we have, and I thought I'd chuck in a bit of a plug saying how diverse we are, as if to claim we're some big happy rainbow family.
