So you are saying that leftists and people radicalised jump in and the article is saying the net result is less biased wiki articles.

Another own goal.
Again you are blindly reading (and misreading) and accepting articles without question. Think independently, geezer. Stop being a sheep.

If you read the article beyond the part that said what you wanted to hear, you would read the same thing I read. Go on, I dare you. Then come back and tell me it didn't say it became less biased with greater intervention.

Oh sod it. I'll make it easier for you.
Wikipedia articles are longer, on average, than Britannica articles, and on a per word basis Wikipedia is actually slightly less biased....the authors found that “Wikipedia articles which have received more revisions tend to be more neutral.” The more the crowd works on an article, the less biased it is.

No, that doesn't work.

I reproduced the conclusion of the article. It just doesn't say what you hoped it was going to say. But there's nowt I can do about that.

You are both infecting threads with petty remarks and it has become extremely boring. Either take your petty squabbles to PM or put each other on ignore. If you carry on you will be sitting on the naughty mat with no keyboard to play with.

It was all fine until Schofield pointed out her daughter is called India. So she shows herself up to just be a provocative bellend.

Taking away her platform means she probably suffers less abuse, which is no bad thing, people need to be better than just retaliating with hate, but it means she's going to pop up somewhere, although I doubt much mainstream media will tolerate her bullshit anymore.

All in all, no real loss or gain. She's an idiot who says stuff to provoke and people reacting causes more negativity and anger and nastiness. We remove the genuinely nasty idiots and normal people don't turn into them as well.

Everyone needs to have a hug and just stop being bellends.

...or paulry. The differences being that paulry isn't as good at it and he has a much smaller audience - us.

I wonder what a "trained Marxist" is? As opposed to an untrained one I mean.

A trained Marxist will be one that has been specifically trained to identify and recruit others to the ideology using a toolkit of techniques. They do a lot more than just door knocking.
