Made my first modification to Consensus Reality today

Postby gnome » Thu Dec 14, 2017 8:06 pm

In the form of my very first Wikipedia edit.

The page on "Mr. Pibb" erroneously referred to it once having been named "Dr. Pibb" and claimed it changed to "Mr. Pibb" as a result of a koppywreightz lawsuit. There was such a lawsuit, but over its original name "Peppo", and it changed from "Peppo" directly to "Mr. Pibb". The article cited already made this clear.

doubleplusungood refs unsodas rewrite fullwise

So I took out the "Dr. Pibb" reference. Dr. Pibb is no more. Erased... FROM EXISTENCE!!

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I've done more than a few edits, from minor spelling fixes to some serious research about New York City geography.

That's under my real name as a respectable Wikipedian.

Numerous other edits anonymously or under throwaway identities. Most don't last long, but a few stick around.

My subtle hatchet job on Michael Lerner lasted for years. It only went away when someone did a rewrite fullwise, which I do not think was targeted at my handiwork in particular. Written by a professional flack or the man himself is my guess.
