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.

Fatheaded Ed Brayton in Wickedpedia edit war

Unscrupulous BVD-clad blogger Fatheaded Ed Brayton is now involved in an edit war in Wickedpedia. The edit war is over entries of references to Michigan Messenger, a multi-blogger blog where Fatheaded Ed is a co-blogger.

Ed, the Wickedpedia rules say no personal blogs may be used as references. Meshuga Messenger is a personal blog, no matter how you look at it. The bloggers on Meshuga Messenger are amateurs. There is no editorial oversight. There are no consequences -- other than through court action -- for knowingly publishing false or unverified information. Personally, I think that Wikipedia should allow references to personal blogs so long as there are disclaimers stating that there is no Wikipedia endorsement. But if there is a rule banning personal blogs, that rule should be followed to the letter.

Larry's still smarting from having this blog denied as a reliable source at Wikipedia during his personal campaign to see Cheri Yecke into office in Florida.

As usual Larry is far off-the-mark in his criticism. There is no Wikipedia policy prohibiting use of "personal blogs" as sources; just non-notable blogs or those whose commentators identity is unverifiable. This blog failed at Wikipedia not because Larry's identity is in question (his sanity is another story), but because this blog remains a non-notable backwater serving up a non-notable persons dull, dim-witted gripes on topics most intelligent, rational people consider non-issues.

The real Larry Fafarman is the brother of Dave Fafarman who is the one whom this imposter calls "Fake Dave". This "Larry" also claims not to know people who have known the real Larry Fafarman all of his life.

Either this Larry Fafarman is an imposter or we have air tight proof of his insanity.

> non-notable <

You forgot "crappy" as Fake Larry complains.
