um, wat.

From my view, this is persistent crank Rome Viharo complaining that someone from RationalWiki (me) is mean yet again.

He seems to have launched the Ethereum bit off this: https://www.reddit.com/r/ethereum/comments/6dkc8w/why_do_we_... in which Ethereum advocates are upset that a non-fan edits the article on Ethereum and actually applies the Wikipedia content rules.

but hey, AMA!

His website name is because he was banned from Wikipedia in 2013 for persistent sockpuppeting. Here's his RW article: http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Rome_Viharo

I wasn't banned from Wikipedia for sock puppeting, you're stating misinformation from RationalWiki.

The RationalWiki article turns out to include checkable cites.

then check them, transparently, with me in this discussion.

because they are references sited out of context in an intentional misinformation campaign to attack my reputation and status.

you're not being forthcoming.

There are many ethereum sub reddits mentioning concern about your presence. Shrugging me off as a "Crank" is not something you can continue to do every time someone criticizes you or RationalWiki.

Yes, they're upset that I dare edit the Ethereum article according to Wikipedia sourcing rules.

I tried to be helpful https://www.reddit.com/r/ethereum/comments/6dkc8w/why_do_we_... but advocates are really bad at understanding that Wikipedia isn't a platform for advocacy, much as you are concerning Rupert Sheldrake advocacy.
