record of a petition against Autism Speaks, 2008

The Autism Speaks: Don’t Speak For Me petition. This was posted on Spectrum Fairness 27 Mar 2008, but the link still leads to the site it came from: www.autism-hub.co.uk/autism-speaks-dont-speak-for-me/index.php

We, the undersigned:

  • Utterly repudiate the notion of murder being an acceptable response to disability
  • Vehemently deny that most parents of autistic — or otherwise disabled — children harbour thoughts of murder
  • Testify that the false ‘reality’ concocted by Autism Speaks film ‘Autism Every Day’ is not a true reflection of the reality of parenting an autistic child
  • Call for a public apology from Lauren Thierry for increasing ignorance regarding autism

Wikipediocracy: site exposing Wikipedia

Site: in 2007, Nadir Ali Rahman, one of thousands who have experienced the corruption of power and aggressiveness at the core of Wikipedia’s admin system, circulated a notice of a project to spread the alert against Wikipedia through Youtube. His heading, on the page linked to, contained an anti-Zionist personal view, but the resistance to Wikipedia should be nothing to do with whether you support Zionism or not:  youtube.com/group/stopwikipedia This Youtube group appears to have disappeared, the link no longer works.

More recently, the site Wikipediocracy has emerged, monitoring the internal politics of Wikipedia and providing a community for folks who have been bruised and wronged by Wikipedia’s workings to share about it, and share in keeping the facts on Wikipedia’s true nature publicly available. wikipediocracy.com/

As a perpetual reminder of what goes on in Wikipedia, why not to follow it as a source of reliable or useful facts, follow each of these links and let them speak for themselves. Then save them:
