Berg created the Northern Alliance page:

Northern_Alliance_Radio_Network

The link from the Northern
Alliance off the Wikipedia page doesn't work anymore:

... Berg also created The
Taxpayers League Wiki page:

and
this one:

Update: The Parrot's initial efforts on Captain Ed - and the
resulting comments were hilarious:

Predictably, Blogger Obsessive Stalker-Looser is having a meltdown over Blogger Berg's response:

Avidor AKA "Crayola Boy" Seems to Have MOB Parrot Mitch Berg's Undies in a
Bunch
Polly wanna cracker?

Thanks, Crayola Boy! Maybe someday
someone’ll give a rat’s ass about what you “write”/”draw”/whatever!


This is what strikes me. Why isn't someone more independent than
Mitch Berg aka the MOB Parrot posting the original article about Captain Ed's
blog? Captain Ed and Mitch are the co-hosts of the same NARN segment every
Saturday. That would like having me post a bio of Ken Avidor - or Avidor Studios
on Wikipedia.

I believe Wikipedia has guidelines on this sort of thing.

A commenter over at the Parrot's site writes:


Oh, I don’t
know, having read some of the fawning, spin-til-you-die pablum on Wiki that this
guy cites (if it Mitch that is the author of those cited articles) - well, the
criticism certainly is highly deserved.

E.G. other than the Health
Impact Fee - I guess Pawlenty kept his promise.

My reply is “gives a
rat’s ass” is really fostering discourse.. very civil, very adult - and
‘Man-crush’ meet Rabbit Ears.

If we hung on your every utterance,
considering the volume of bilge, there’s little else we could do during the work
day - as that seems to be when you write most of your commentary these days -
and even that’s ironic, considering you chastised your ‘adoring public’ (well,
okay, only your critics, for commenting during the day- not so long ago..
hrmmmm).

Dream a double standard you object of a big-man-crush you.

Curious.

For no reason whatsoever I decided to look up the edits of Michele Bachmann's (that's one "l", two "n's") wikipedia entry. I noted some curious edits by an anonymous user (identified only by the IP address 75.72.92.204 -- that's 75.72.92.204) on the history page. So I then looked up all the edits made by anonymous user 75.72.92.204, and here's what came up:


21:58, 22 September 2007 (hist) (diff) Michele Bachmann‎ (Rallies at state capitol and Senate leadership promotion/demotion - minor fix - url = not URL= in cite.)

21:56, 22 September 2007 (
hist) (diff) Michele Bachmann‎ (Rallies at state capitol and Senate leadership promotion/demotion - Added information about Death Penalty for Homosexuals Sign at Bachmann's 2004 anti-gay marriage rally.)

21:54, 22 September 2007 (
hist) (diff) Michele Bachmann‎ (Rallies at state capitol and Senate leadership promotion/demotion)

21:47, 22 September 2007 (
hist) (diff) Michele Bachmann‎ (Rallies at state capitol and Senate leadership promotion/demotion)

20:53, 3 August 2007 (
hist) (diff) Michele Bachmann‎ (Political positions)

23:33, 1 June 2007 (
hist) (diff) Power Line‎ (Political positions - added information about Best Meltdown)

02:50, 23 May 2007 (
hist) (diff) Marilyn Musgrave‎ (Same-sex marriage)

03:58, 2 May 2007 (
hist) (diff) Michele Bachmann‎ (Political positions - Intelligent design is a type of creationism.)

Curious.

I did a quick google search on a couple of those above items (I, unlike some partially employed middle-aged former cartoonists for weekly freebie rags, have a life), and I noticed that they were popular memes on a couple of certain local drool blogs.

So who is 75.72.92.204?

And why do the interests and talking points of 75.72.92.204 so closely match those of Eva Young's and Ken Avidor's blogs (i.e. they can't mention Powerline without also mentioning a two-year old City Pages smear as well)?

And why would Eva Young or one of her droogs want to edit these entries anonymously?

As Middle-Aged Adolescent Blogger Avidor is quick to note:

"The user who visits Wikipedia to learn about some subject, to confirm
some matter of fact, is rather in the position of a visitor to a public
restroom. It may be obviously dirty, so that he knows to exercise great care, or
it may seem fairly clean, so that he may be lulled into a false sense of
security. What he certainly does not know is who has used the facilities before
him."

-Robert McHenry, Former Editor in Chief of the
Encyclopædia Britannica
