What's his Fark handle?

"One could argue that it's reasonable to redirect 'boob sex' and 'tit farking' to 'mammary intercourse,'" they explained. "But it's much harder to defend redirects like 'titty tumors,' 'segmental removal of the titties,' 'constructions of the booby,' 'hypoplastic tits' and 'atrophy of the titties.'"

Right there is the funniest farking thing I done read so far this year. Can't wait for someone to top that

Damn, that sounds like Wikipedia had quite a titastrophy on their hands

This was a titillating article. We would be boobs to not enjoy it thoroughly.

Hell yes. I liked titty waist hip measurement. I've done some minor Wikipedia editing and even insterted a page. Now I sort of understand more why the admins are such dicks.

In fairness to Neelix, if you worked with Seven of Nine, your thoughts may drift towards every thesaurus entry for titties.

You're gonna read this in his voice now. All the way through. And when you get
to the end, he'll still be ringing in your ears. And then you'll wonder what's in the box?

"Who the fark is going to search 'suckling of the titties' instead of 'breastfeeding'?"

This is gold.  I'm dying here.

He chose Neelix as his nom de clavier. That should have been a huge red flag right there.
 
2021-01-19 10:18:18 PM  
Wow.  Seems like a real bureaucracy, that Wikipedia.  A deep state with (I'm assuming) very little money in the "chest".  Not surprised somebody went a little nuts with what seems like a lot of power that didn't pay well.

Still, it would take administrators nearly three years to undo the damage Neelix had wrought.

They took too long to nip it.

When I invent time travel, I'm not doing anything mundane like sports betting or strangling baby Hitler. No, I'm making it worthwhile. I'm going to every decade from Gutenberg's first printing until Wikipedia is created, and leaving thousands of copies of this article scattered around the world.

I'm gonna freak people the fark OUT.
 
2021-01-19 11:45:21 PM  
I find this skeevy and disturbing, especially about segmenting and destroying in some way.

I'm glad they are getting rid of this freak's psycho-sexual fantasies in a god-damned encyclopedia.

Keep away from my breasts. They are mine. I don't want to know that you are thinking about cutting them off in segments, you puking shiat-weasel.
 
2021-01-19 11:46:05 PM  
Thanks for keeping me abreast of this situation.

"Who the fark is going to search 'suckling of the titties' instead of 'breastfeeding'?"

If searching for 'suckling of the titties' is wrong then I don't want to be right.

There was an article from yesterday that had the statement "I don't have no mental illness! I'm from Florida."

oh wow, thats... so weird.  I don't edit much, but I remember reading discussions where Neelix was prominent.

I'm not sure I agree that his redirects are useless.  Just kinda porno-centric?  But I was totally against the changes to fark policy before I realized how awesome it is to not have to ignore every few comments because togtfo so... I may not be a great judge.

wingedkat: I'm not sure I agree that his redirects are useless.  Just kinda porno-centric?


Except they weren't really porno-centric, just puerile.  Which made them useless.  If the standard slang terms for a beej went to fellatio, that would make sense.  If you typed them into the search bar, sending you to the article you obviously wanted would make sense. "Suckling on the titties" is not what anyone would type to get to breastfeeding.  Breast-play, maybe, but not for feeding a baby.  And a lot of them looked like he started with an article to be directed to and then just made up convoluted ways to express it in terms of titties, rather than something someone would formulate organically.  And if it was a few hundred, you could kinda approach it as an experiment - if the redirects actually got used, it would point to him having a point.  But 80K?  Of the sort of thesaurus-dragging even a fifth-grader would find infantile?  That's a pathology.

As a new mom, I must admit my breastfeeding search didn't include 'suckling of the titties'.
'titty banged,' 'frenchfarking,' 'licks boobs,' 'boobyfeeding,' or 'a trip down mammary lane".

Though now I wonder if it should have. Those late nights early on would have been more entertaining.

Normal people don't become dedicated wiki editors, you need something like autism or other such quirks before it will be appealing to you. It's like the engineering fields having abnormally high representation in furry circles, a strange quirk of the brain. Purge the irregularities and you'll need to start paying people because it's not rewarding work for people with regular brains that prioritize self-actualization.
Or to put it another way, let nerds be nerds and let civilization function.

"But it's much harder..."

I bet it is.
