"As long as you can remember"[edit]

Hi Anthony. Re your recent comments, would you care to provide some examples of my "actively encouraging rudeness and puerility" over such an extended period of time? No rush – I'm sure you're busy, as am I.

ArbCom case[edit]

Hey Anthony, I can't see what the evidence is of Eric's disruption at GGTF. Is there any evidence of his disruption at GGTF? What are these six arbs looking at? Thanks, Drmies (talk) 21:37, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

Well, from Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Gender Gap Task Force/Proposed decision#Eric Corbett:
(C) Eric Corbett has discussed matters on the Gender Gap Task Force in a non-constructive manner.[1][2][3][4]
2, 3 and 4 are insulting. Given his "yes", though, that seems to have been resolved. I'm hoping Seraphimblade and Roger will reconsider, in light of the "yes". I don't know where NativeForeigner stands. --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 22:51, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Thanks Anthony. Wow. 3 supposed insults and a ban is in the works. The case was, ostensibly, about the GGTF. Shouldn't a topic ban from that project be an appropriate penalty? I can't help but think that at some point criticism of the project was turned into support for sexism and misogyny. Well, I may work on an article or two, or not. Thanks again.

Marathon Man[edit]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Mark_Marathon#March_2014

You defended him last time. But he's at it again, and I have had enough of him. Do you want to explain to one or the other of us, who is nuts?

Wikipediocracy blog[edit]

Just curious. Have you and/or SandyGeorgia and maybe anyone else ever considered trying to get together a piece on the medical board for the wikipediocracy blog? John Carter (talk) 15:32, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Heh. I wonder if the more deranged Wikipediocracy people would have to abandon their assertions that User:SandyGeorgia is the heart of a huge abusive IRC ring of nasty administrators and others, before that would happen. (Just from my observations, SG despises IRC either as a medium of communication or as regards its role in Wikipedia decision-making, or more likely both. I'm sure she'll correct me if I'm wrong.)
There are lots of more influential places where SG (and other well-meaning individuals, present company included) could write things if they wished to do so. --Demiurge1000 (talk) 23:15, 29 November 2014 (UTC)
My answer is yes, yes and yes. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 23:17, 29 November 2014 (UTC)
The reason for mentioning it is Anthony has been, in some comments which seem to have been deleted, proposed for being blocked from the site by someone who themselves seem to have been blocked since then. I was just thinking that Anthony, who has many more edits there than I, might use it to counter the claims made on the apparently now-deleted comments. John Carter (talk) 23:43, 29 November 2014 (UTC)
I like the idea of a blog post critiquing Wikipedia's medical content. Per Demiurge, there may be a more effective place to publish it, depending on our tone, what we have to say, and who our audience is, of course. Are you saying "yes" to a blog post, Sandy, or to Demiurge? If the former, do you want to email me? --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 01:12, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
I was joking all 'round. If I have to face our medical content issues again, I will just lose my Thanksgiving dinner (even after two days). It was bad enough before the Education Program made medical content a playground for plagiarizing youngsters, working for their profs ... errrrr ... a grade ... before they disappear, leaving us with a huge cleanup. The WMF has plenty of go-to ability to get out a press release when they want to sing the praises of gender gapper Awadewit, but none when they should address the legacy of damage that she/that program left us. Where, WMF, is the press release telling profs to have their kiddos lay off of adding content that matters to a website that reaches gazillions? SandyGeorgia (Talk) 01:34, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
OK. Mmm. I'll think about this. Sandy, I'll email you if I go ahead - once Thanksgiving has settled, maybe you could consider adding something about the education program's effect on WPMED. (Any interest in any of this, Colin?) Thanks for the suggestion, John. --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 01:59, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
Why not put it on the signpost for starters? Or contact Slate or...who knows....? Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 01:17, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
Or the WMF blog? Face-smile.svg --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 01:28, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
Indeed. The WMF blog, as well as not being full of rabid cranks who associate SG with IRC (that's one very amusing craziness, for sure), also has the advantage of not being in a state of self-implosion like the WO site, which right now is busily trying to hide from public view the criticism of the squalid behaviour of some of its more profit-focused "trustees" by those who supposedly voted to elect them.
Wrong lizard! --Demiurge1000 (talk) 02:49, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Betje Koolhaas[edit]

Wikipedia study- Thank you[edit]

Hello Anthonycole, I hope you remember speaking to me in the summer of 2012 about your motivations for contributing to the health-related pages on Wikipedia. The great news is that the study got published this Wednesday in JMIR (Journal of Medical Internet Research). You can read it here: http://www.jmir.org/2014/12/e260 This would not have been possible without your contributions so once again, I would like to thank you for taking the time and sharing your experiences with me. I also wrote an entry about my own experience with the study, about additional observations and how I plan to further extend my research - published in the WMF blog today: https://blog.wikimedia.org.uk/2014/12/who-writes-wikipedias-health-and-medical-pages-and-why/ If you have any comments or questions please get in touch.Perhaps see you at the next Wikimania conference in Mexico! Best Wishes Hydra Rain (talk) 21:08, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Yay! I read it last night. Thank you so much for this valuable piece of work. 31/32 male? Amazing. 3 school kids. "Half working in healthcare" supports the result Jake and James found in their short survey - if my memory serves me well. Well done. I look forward to your next. --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 03:03, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
