No!!!! Someone erased my wikipedia entry on Al Gore III!!!!

He was arrested with marijuana.

Then he was arrested with marijuana again.

He was arrested for driving while stoned.

He was arrested for driving over 100 mpg.

He was arrested for having 5 different prescription drugs, even though he didn't have prescriptions for any of them.

So I added the following to the article:

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?...ldid=181473809

Because Gore's father was an ex-Vice President, Gore was exempted from having to serve any jail time for his many crimes. [2]
But someone has erased it.

Now that part just says:


See?

My precious sentence in gone! Gone! Gone!

OK. I fixed it. I put it back.

This will always link to whatever the current version is:

Don't be dense. You deliberately wrote something that is incendiary: "The law doesn't apply to the son of an ex-Vice President."

Then you linked to an opinion piece on AlterNet to back up your "fact".

That is simply not how you write on Wikipedia. There is no vast conspiracy. Poorly written statements get erased all the time. Yours is one of them.

Wow, that's quite a rap sheet.

With a record like that, he could be a Bush.

Yes it is. That is how I write on wikipedia.

Maybe it's not how you write.

But is it how I write.

There's ways in which you write here on this forum. Even if I strongly believe in my opinion that <s>wendersfan</s> an anonymous member is a blithering fool, I can't call him that. Same goes for Wikipedia. It is not your playground.

Stick to articles about obscure 1960's joke magazines.

Driving over 100 mpg surely offset the other offenses.

Stop! Don't write another sentence until you check out the cool articles on "fact" and 'opinion" on Wikipedia.

That's odd. They both have the same entries.

Well, he was driving a hybrid. I think they only get about 50 mpg though.

I guess "offsetting" your bad behavior tends to run in the Gore family.

May I suggest posting your Al Gore III "information" on Conservapedia instead? Even if it's innacurate, no one there will care (or even read it) since it has nothing to do homosexuality.

I still need to be convinced Al Gore III merits a Wikipedia entry.

According to the article, "He is known for being mentioned in an emotional vice-presidential nomination acceptance speech by his father during the 1992 Democratic National Convention."

So, there you go.

Of course you may suggest it. You can suggest anything you want. You don't need my permission.

Thanks for your persistance grundle. The fact that some posters make snarky remarks about your posts indicate that you're effective.
