.@azaroth42: anything involving @jimmy_wales is bound to be shady, starting with Bomis. He admitted using a core #Wikipedia rule to lie to their visitors. Consider anything you put into or read from #Wikibase in that light. http://24ahead.com/n/9281

.@mjhucknall: FYI, @jimmy_wales admits to using #Wikipedia rules to lie to their visitors. He helped keep a lie in WP while keeping the truth out. Now, imagine what state & corporate actors are doing. WP is a disinfo vector. http://24ahead.com/n/9281

.@Dries: @jimmy_wales admitted using #Wikipedia rules to keep a lie in WP and keep the truth out (details on request). WP has always been shady back to their Bomis origins. How about encouraging d.o documenters to avoid linking to WP? #Drupal

.@mediatwit: hey Mark, @jimmy_wales admitted using #Wikipedia 's own rules to keep a lie in WP & to keep the truth out. Don't you think Putinbots (using USA IPs & fluent in English) are taking advantage of the same rules to spread disinfo? http://24ahead.com/n/9281
