Despite a comprehensive set of rules replete with checks and balances and a seemingly open democratic editing process, stories of pay-for-play editing, character assassinations, ideologically-driven trolling, and other offenses against public knowledge suggested all was not right in Jimmy Wales’ empire. Authors and public figures in fields as diverse as Complementary and Alternative Medicine and progressive politics (including Deepak Chopra, Rupert Sheldrake, Gary Null, John Pilger, and George Galloway) have complained of persistent negative coverage on Wikipedia despite the site’s vaunted neutrality and the promise … [Read more...] about Wikipedia: Rotten to the core?
How trolls are ruining the internet
AMERICAN internet trolls have blasted the Royal Family as "arrogant" and "stupid" after they threatened to report abusive online comments to cops.

HUFFPOST PERSONAL 01/25/2019 09:00 am ET By Latoya Shauntay Snell, Guest Writer Last year, I completed two 50Ks and four marathons ― three of which were done within a two-month span. And just a week before I participated in the New York City Marathon, I also completed my first 100K ― the Javelina Jundred event in the Arizona desert, which involves running roughly 62 miles. This year I signed up for 10 marathons and a 50-miler, and I intend on running in my first 100-miler. Still, despite earning over 100 finisher medals and completing close to 200 running, cycling and obstacle course racing events over a span of five years, the internet police continue to remind me to lose some weight. I’m an unapologetic 5’3, 242-pound road and trail ultra runner from Brooklyn sponsored by HOKA ONE ONE running shoe company, and I am continuously fat-shamed. On Jan. 3, I posted a video on my Instagram account of my fitness regimen. … [Read more...] about I’m Running 10 Marathons This Year And I Still Get Fat-Shamed. Here’s My Response.

Julie Globus is now owning the name: LostMessiah. For two and a half years, the Rockland County resident -- a wife, mother and attorney -- wrote an anonymous blog under that name. The blog’s stated purpose: "To uncover crimes, misdeeds and abuses within segments of the Jewish community in the hopes of effectuating change." In an exclusive interview, Globus told the I-Team she had two separate focuses: "One was on the ultra-Orthodox community, and the money -- where it was coming and going? And I was focusing on sexual abuse. I think there is a need to hold myself and others within that religious community accountable." Globus said she wanted to remain anonymous to protect her family."“The subject matter that I was touching on was really dangerous stuff, like police corruption. Russian diamond smuggling."
