On anger

I think some of us have a really angry inner voice that we harness for motivation. I guess we figure if we're right, it should be okay to yell. It is a deeply misguided assumption that motivates no one and garners very negative results.

Hi, I'm Fluffernutter. You may or may not know that a fluffernutter is a sandwich, but it's a fact and it's where my name comes from. In my volunteer time I am largely a wanderer and a wikignome - you might find me reading through anything from the history of Hugo Award winners (and fixing grammar where I spot errors) to the complete succession of the British Monarchy (and reverting vandalism I find there). When I do focus on particular editing types, I tend to work on the copyediting backlog as part of The Guild of Copyeditors and semi-regularly patrol Category:Wikipedia articles with nonstandard pronunciation, Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting, and Category:Pages with missing references list to fix errors. Most of the articles I've written are in the domain of famous criminal cases, though I've been known to write about other random topics that catch my fancy, as well.

Most Wikimedians call me "Fluffy" or "Fluff" ("Fluffer", which might seem like easy shorthand, is actually a very NSFW name indeed to call someone), but I also answer to my real name, Karen (though I'm so used to being referred to as a sandwich that "Karen" is less likely to catch my attention!). My husband also edits Wikipedia.
