Comment on the Belmont Club:
"Into the Memory Hole"


jaybird,
(who's discovery of the deletion of the BC I growled at)
I owe you an apology.

My comment from Nihiltres' wiki Talk page:
The Sorcerer's Apprentice
The Belmont Club is deleted by Nihitres the Nihilist. Prejudice unencumbered by wisdom, learning, or experience sits in judgment. If this system worked rationally the senior administrators would see that you are destroying the value of their product and remove you quickly. One day you may have the misfortune of stepping outside of the cossetted air of the university Common Room or even face life in the private sector. My expectation is that with your ignorant and presumptuous penchant to not just criticize but to damage the value of what others work on, I am here referring to the Wikipedia, you would not last three days.

Can you see him pushing a mop?


wretchard,
Power means the power to delete
Power can also mean the power not to delete. Oskar Schidnler told Amon Goth that true power was the power of the King to say "I pardon you." It did not take but at least he tried.


The Hindus, to not do them justice, give Brahman or God three aspects, Brahman the Creator, Vishnu the Preserver and Shiva the Destroyer. We can not create as God can but we can explore creation and preserve.

wretchard,
Theirs is the god of tiny things

Tiny things count. There are people who would destroy ideas and they do not stop there.
Dort wo man B├╝cher verbrennt, verbrennt man auch am Ende Menschen.
* Where they burn books, at the end they also burn people.
- Heinrich Heine
Jews say that if you save a single life you save a world.
