I'm from Missouri

This site is named for the famous statement of US Congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver from Missouri : "I`m from Missouri -- you'll have to show me." This site is dedicated to skepticism of official dogma in all subjects. Just-so stories are not accepted here. This is a site where controversial subjects such as evolution theory and the Holocaust may be freely debated.

My biggest motivation for creating my own blogs was to avoid the arbitrary censorship practiced by other blogs and various other Internet forums. Censorship will be avoided in my blogs -- there will be no deletion of comments, no closing of comment threads, no holding up of comments for moderation, and no commenter registration hassles. Comments containing nothing but insults and/or ad hominem attacks are discouraged. My non-response to a particular comment should not be interpreted as agreement, approval, or inability to answer.

Wickedpedia's Yecke bio is only "semi-protected"

The latest entry in the history of Wikipedia's bio of Cheri Yecke says that the bio is only "semi-protected," which Wikipedia defines as follows:

Semi-protection disables editing from anonymous users and registered accounts fewer than four days old.

So if you are a registered Wikipedia user with a registration four days old or older, there is still time to play games with the Wickedpedian control freaks before the IRS finishes them off for violating the rule against political campaigning by 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Simplified instructions for reverting the Cheri Yecke bio are here.

Anyone who wants to join Larry on the banned list, follow his instructions.

I doubt if this will be a limiting factor. The IRS isn't that stupid.

Wrong. Users are normally allowed up to three reverts in a 24-hour period. And violating the three-revert rule normally results in a ban of only 24 hours.

>>>>>> I doubt if this will be a limiting factor. The IRS isn't that stupid. <<<<<<

The IRS rule is clear:

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office.

Of course, Wickedpedia does not have to follow the above rule -- the solution is just to not be a 501(c)(3) organization.

They will make an exception for people intentionally engaging in "edit wars".

It is clear that Wikipedia isn't campaigning.

We will see. If I am right, Wikipedia will retain their nonprofit status and you will claim that the IRS is corrupt. If you are right, the sun will rise in the West.

You know, all this activity you are generating will just cause more and more dirt to be dug up on Yecke and posted in clearly labeled sections with all the proper citations and references. It's already to the point where the overall summary of her actions is less than respectable given the amount of legitimate sources backing up the facts. Unless, that's what you are trying to do all along... are you? I was the one who started the intelligent design controversies section and I am pleased with how it has grown. While it is my intention to see that supporters of ID in the education systems be removed for their anti-scientific nonsense, the documented facts prevents the need for biased personal attacks and opinions from no-name bloggers seeking to ingratiate themselves with the conservative right.
