A false Wikipedia 'biography' A false Wikipedia 'biography' By John Seigenthaler "John Seigenthaler Sr. was the assistant to Attorney General Robert Kennedy in the early 1960's. For a brief time, he was thought to have been directly involved in the Kennedy assassinations of both John, and his brother, Bobby. Nothing was ever proven." — Wikipedia This is a highly personal story about Internet character assassination. I have no idea whose sick mind conceived the false, malicious "biography" that appeared under my name for 132 days on Wikipedia, the popular, online, free encyclopedia whose authors are unknown and virtually untraceable. "John Seigenthaler moved to the Soviet Union in 1971, and returned to the United States in 1984," Wikipedia said. At age 78, I thought I was beyond surprise or hurt at anything negative said about me. At my request, executives of the three websites now have removed the false content about me. Anonymous author "No, we don't," he said. Naturally, I want to unmask my "biographer."

Speak Up Archives HELLO (AND, WELL, GOODBYE)After nearly seven years of blogging, Speak Up has ceased publication. While this may not be a remarkable amount of time in the world of print and online publishing, the intensity with which we — founders, authors and readers alike — undertook it made it seem as it had been decades. For a thorough description on the reasons to close Speak Up, you may read this post, so as not to take much more space here. This web site is a bare-bones version of the archives for quick and easy perusal of more than 1,600 posts — a replica of Speak Up, as it was on closing day, can be found here, and at any point you can add “as-it-was/” after “speakup/” to the URL to see the original version. To the right you will see all of our categories with a brief description of what you may find. Below are some highlights from our time spent blogging. We hope all this helps maintain the legacy of Speak Up frozen in digital time and that it may be of some use to passersby. WHY SO SERIOUS?

The Wikipedia Knowledge Dump ( Core77 Main Page - Gamegrene - Ghyll grain edit List of conspiracy theories There are many unproven conspiracy theories of varying degrees of popularity, frequently related to but not limited to clandestine government plans, elaborate murder plots, suppression of secret technology and knowledge, and other supposed schemes behind certain political, cultural, and historical events. Some theories have dealt with censorship and excoriation from the law such as the Holocaust denial. Conspiracy theories usually go against a consensus or cannot be proven using the historical method and are typically not considered similar to verified conspiracies such as Germany's pretense for invading Poland in World War II. Ethnicity, race and religion[edit] Antisemitic conspiracy theories[edit] Antisemitism has, from the Middle Ages, frequently taken on characteristics of conspiracy theory. In the second half of the 19th century conspiracists claimed that Jews and/or Freemasons were plotting to establish control over the world. Armenian conspiracy[edit] Samuel A. Eurabia[edit]
