I've been at Wikipedia for a while (I retired for a bit, but I couldn't stay away, so I created this account in Nov. 06), and I do lots of miscellaneous work, occasionally adding new articles. I do a lot of work on American Civil War biographies, and I've added more than 150 public domain images. I only go by GhostPirate on Wikipedia, so if you see the name somewhere else, it isn't me. I used to do a lot of work on the new pages patrol, and in the course of that work, I pissed off my share of vandals, hoaxsters and general malcontents. You can read their bizarre and unintentionally hilarious comments at the bottom of this page. My personal pet peeve about Wikipedia is "trivia" and "X in popular culture" sections. Whenever I see one, I want to burn it with a flamethrower. If you want to look at the userboxes, you can find out more about me.
