http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pete_Townshend

In early January 2003, Townshend admitted having provided his credit card details to a commercial child pornography website, and viewing the child porn images there, which he claimed to have done for research purposes. He made the admission after his credit card transaction was discovered as part of Operation Ore, a large anti- child pornography operation. When a British tabloid found his name on this list and asked for a comment, he went public and requested a police investigation. His home was searched and his computers confiscated. Police returned the computers several months later and did not contradict Townshend's claim that the computers contained 15,000 of his songs but no child porn. In May 2003, he was cautioned by the police (acceptance of which is technically an admission of guilt), who decided not to press charges, after finding no evidence that he was in possession of child pornography. He was also placed on the Sex Offenders Register, requiring him to register with the police every year and if he moves house. Failure to do so would carry a five-year jail sentence.

His research claims were bolstered by a document he wrote and posted on his official website in January, 2002. In "A Different Bomb (http://www.petetownshend.co.uk/media/020120adifferentbomb.pdf)," Townshend warns that portions of the Internet represent a terrible danger, primarily because it brings deviant material to deviant (and potentially deviant) people. The title suggests he views porn - and especially child porn - on the Internet as an inevitable negative, as scary as the atomic bomb. In March, 2004, Townshend was featured on a BBC television documentary in which he described his experiences as a result of the charges, stated that he was so upset by the accusations that he considered suicide, and apologized for the event. On May 19th 2005 Townshend turned 60.

I think the unusual detail is that Pete Townshend apparently has written 15,000 songs, all of which he houses on his enormo-computer.

So I'm sure everyone already heard that John Seigenthaler Sr. was VERY MAD that someone dared implicate him in the Kennedy assassinations in his bio on the wikipedia. So the guy who did it as a joke has come forward and apologized. Fine.

But he has also "resigned as an operations manager at a Nashville delivery company as a result of the debacle".

No, that's not overreacting - that is a threat, no? A little scary if you ask me, but these reactions on the net are very...strange. Some people don't like Mr. Seigenthaler if you ask me.

One more thing, if you follow the links, it appears that this whole thing is part of the 'anti-wikipedia' extremist movement (which would like to gain more credibility, but which is essentially extremist). The anti-wiki movement involves anti-science groups, far right groups, and Scientology, but watch them try to mainstream it. One way to do this is the 'hit them with both sides' strategy. This whole thing could be a ploy to bring traditional media attention to Wikipedia, albeit in a negative light...and hopefully, the extremist and scary anti-Wikipedia 'movement' would also gain 'legitimacy'. Who is hoping this will happen? Well, not only fringe groups, but whatever allies they may have in corporate America.

Wikipedia Watch
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

Wikipedia Watch is a website critical of Wikipedia. It is owned by Daniel Brandt, the leader of the Southwestern chapter of Aryan Nations and an Internet activist.

GET EQUIPPED WITH BUBBLE LEAD (ex machina), Monday, 12 December 2005 14:26 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

From the Google-watch-watch site:

The first such article I read was published by Salon.com and can be found here (http://www.salon.com/tech/feature/2002/08/29/google_watch/print.html). This article isn't so bad as the others, the author does expose Brandt's motives:

Brandt is not a disinterested party; the dispute between Daniel Brandt and Google is personal. He has spent thousands of hours building a Web site that he believes is both useful and important, and Google, in its algorithmic blindness, has given Brandt a lower page rank than he thinks he's entitled to. Brandt finds it genuinely hard to believe -- and even personally insulting -- that Google won't give him more credit.

However the article does paint Mr. Brandt in a friendly light, and so it lends credibility to his cause - a cause which most if not all search engine professionals would regard as absurd.

The crux of Brandt's argument can be summed up with these paragraphs from the Salon.com article.

When you type "NameBase" into Google, Brandt's site comes up first, but Brandt is not satisfied with that. "My problem has been to get Google to go deep enough into my site," he says. In other words, Brandt wants Google to index the 100,000 names he has in his database, so that a Google search for "Donald Rumsfeld" will bring up NameBase's page for the secretary of defense. For some reason, though, all of NameBase's deep pages -- its pages with specific names and citations -- have a low Google page rank, which causes them to show up low in the search results. Search for "Donald Rumsfeld" in Google and in the first five pages you get a lot of .mil and .gov sites, some news stories, and some activist sites. Namebase's entry on Rumsfeld doesn't come up. (It is in Google's database, but to find it somebody would have to first wade through hundreds of results.)

Why is a Nazi collecting people's names and citations?

The Tribune Company is a large multimedia corporation based in Chicago, Illinois. It owns the Chicago Tribune, WGN, the Chicago Cubs, the Los Angeles Times, Newsday in New York, the Hartford Courant, The Baltimore Sun, the Daily Press, and many other media outlets. The Tribune Company is also a co-owner of the WB television network. The Tribune Company's revenues total billions of dollars each year.
The Tribune Company also owns Tribune Entertainment, which owns the distribution rights to several television shows including: Andromeda, Mutant X, The Beastmaster, Family Feud, South Park, Soul Train, Candid Camera, Earth: Final Conflict, and others.

One criticism of the Tribune Company is that they are responsible for the Cubs' perpetual losing. The Tribune Company discovered that the Cubs are more profitable fielding a poor team, rather than spending big on free agents. The Chicago Cubs are located in a trendy area of Chicago, causing them to have great attendance at home games, even when the team is doing poorly.

If the Tribune Company is so unhappy about this, why don't they just edit it?

i just mentioned the film Darkness Falls on the Stephen King thread and this bit of info about its production stood out...

While filming on location in Brisbane, Australia, a strange aggressive young boy by the name of Jacob Francis Worrall was hired to be the body double for the young Kyle Walsh. The part was a minor roll requiring 2-3 days on set at most, however it quickly became apparent to cast and crew alike that 'Baby Jake' wasn't going away easily. The actions taken by the 13 year old Jacob shocked and appalled the crew, when needed on set Jacob would throw tantrums and refuse to leave the toilets, biting and swearing he was normally wrangled onto set. Some allegations of Jake intentionally exposing himself to male and female cast members began to circulate and the child actor was promptly fired. Jacob Francis Worrall still lives in Brisbane and owns a successful Coffee shop located in Springhill, Brisbane City.
