[03:42:23] <wizardrydragon> Greetings
[03:42:56] <Sevalecan> hello oh dragon of wizardry
[03:43:41] <Sevalecan> wait, so we have an ultima dragon... who uses his dragon name everywhere, and is affiliated with wikimedia
[03:43:43] <Sevalecan> interesting
[03:43:57] <wizardrydragon> Back in the day
[03:44:06] <wizardrydragon> I was pretty involved in Wikipedia.
[03:44:20] <wizardrydragon> Or specifically, the spam squishing part of Wikipedia.
[03:45:17] <Sevalecan> cool
[03:46:06] <wizardrydragon> It can get pretty hairy though, I ended up making a break from it.
[03:46:36] <wizardrydragon> Dealing with trying to explain to a bunch of people day in and day out why myspace links aren't encyclopedic got a little .. yeah
[03:46:52] <Sevalecan> haha
[03:46:57] <Sevalecan> yeah I can imagine :P
[03:47:11] <wizardrydragon> Well, I remember
[03:47:20] <wizardrydragon> Gosh, it was about this time in 07, maybe June?
[03:48:03] <wizardrydragon> Talking with Jimmy and with Brion and Danny about what we wanted to do with that, coming up with a blacklist of sites that either weren't really notable, or were very likely spam.
[03:48:13] <wizardrydragon> So I made a little thing that let me quickly go through the links.
[03:48:44] <wizardrydragon> Systematically removed every myspace link that wasn't useful to the article... and my talk page became a warzone or something for the next month.
[03:49:25] <Sevalecan> D:
[03:50:22] <Sevalecan> yeah not something I'd want to put up with :P
[03:50:28] <Sevalecan> or maybe I'd take maddox's approach to hate. ;)
[03:50:29] <wizardrydragon> OMG WHY DID YOU REMOVE MY BAND IT IS TOTALLY NOtABLE !!!!!111!oneone1eleventyone
[03:50:38] <wizardrydragon> Yeah.
[03:50:52] <wizardrydragon> I felt bad about leaving some of the people that were also dealing with that whole row.
[03:50:59] <wizardrydragon> But it was just too much for me to deal with, really.
[03:52:43] <wizardrydragon> So
[03:52:55] <wizardrydragon> Now I resign myself to TFL, yay!
[03:53:06] <wizardrydragon> I still need to find out why MediaWiki ate my mail server
[03:54:50] * Sevalecan can't imagine why a wiki would want to eat a mail server
[03:57:20] <wizardrydragon> Iunno, but apparently MW doesn't play well with Exim
