Emil Kirkegaard perm banned on Wikipedia

Emil Kirkegaard [1] has just been perm banned on Wikipedia! Someone might want to add this to his article. His account was created in 2007 but from around 2014-2018 he spent years making very noticeable racist edits that were obviously problematic especially in regards to conflict of interest (he was editing people related to Mankind Quarterly), the Wikimedia Foundation obviously had enough. Good news. Muslim guy (talk) 23:30, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

Why not add it yourself? You clearly grok the markup. --MtDBogan 23:37, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

Kirkegaard whitewashing Wikipedia articles

One thing I noticed was Kirkegaard whitewashing the London Conference on Intelligence article at Wikipedia and a few others by trying to remove news source that accurately describe him as far-right/racist etc. He then seems to have been whitewashing a whole load of articles related to his associates from OpenPsych pseudojournals. There was drama a few weeks back with impersonations and fake accounts showing up requesting to delete OpenPsych material on RationalWiki. It looks like his failed plan was to delete these RationalWiki articles that expose him and his colleagues, and replace Google searches with those whitewashed Wikipedia articles. All this failed and backfired since he's now banned from Wikipedia; his article will always remain here, alongside the other OpenPsych racialist cranks. Also, now he's banned I'm going to get all his edits reverted from Wikipedia or at least edit all the OpenPsych articles he's been whitewashing.Arcticos (talk) 23:48, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

  • Most of his edits on Wikipedia have already been reverted and I do not recommend going anywhere near his account, Arb Com are keeping a watchful eye. Two experienced users have reverted most of his agenda-pushed racialist edits, Grayfell and IntoThinAir. On his Wikipedia user-page before he was banned Kirkegaard wrote he was recruiting people off-site to help him edit Wikipedia [2]. What he meant by this was getting his friends to create articles for race realists, this is a conflict of interest and meat-puppet issue which is against Wikipedia rules. For example, he was involved in creating the Wikipedia article for Michael A. Woodley of Menie, [3], it was created by an obvious meat-puppet Bpesta22. This page and others he was involved with are written from a biased POV, and do not mention any criticisms of their controversial research. Kirkegaard was obsessed with editing individuals on Wikipedia who had contributed to the racist Mankind Quarterly and Intelligence journals, but he had published in those himself, so it is conflict of interest.
  • Check the Michael A. Woodley of Menie article at this website, that includes criticisms. Kirkegaard wanted to filter out any of these criticisms of eugenics or racism and pretend his racist buddies are doing science. He wanted to do to this to compete with the Rationalwiki articles on Google traffic, but thankfully he has failed. I also checked his Wikipedia history going back over ten years. He used to be more normal and edit different topics, in the last six years or so his obsession is only race and intelligence. He probably has asperger syndrome as this race obsession is a obsessive topic of his. He tweets about intelligence and race all day on Twitter. I actually suspect he will get banned on Twitter in the next few years. Muslim guy (talk) 00:52, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
Thank for information, I'll probably add a section about all this tomorrow to his article.Arcticos (talk) 02:06, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

Not enough prose

Too many quotes, not enough prose, imo. The lead section explains a lot, but much of the rest of the article is basically a set of glorified footnotes. NekoDysk 21:39, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
