User:Erik the Appreciator/A Man In Black user page preservation
- Early in April 2006, I saw this troll on Wikipedia get into an allcaps dispute with known Wikipedia administrator A Man In Black about whether to put into the separate articles about Pokémon species information about where in the real world each Pokémon would be found in if they were real. You read that right. >_> (You can see the debate here.) The next two days after the dispute were quiet...
- On the morning of April 7, 2006, I went onto Wikipedia and glanced at AMIB's user page and was startled to be greeted by this sight:
User:A Man In Black
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A letter from one of my fans:
I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY THAT A MAN IN BLACK IS A PRUDE LOSER. HE HAS ABSOLUTELY NO FRIENDS. HE ONLY EDITS VIDIOGAME ARTICLES BECAUSE THATS WHAT HE KNOWS BEST BY FAR. AT THIS POINT IN HIS LIFE, HE IDOLIZES HIS MOTHER BECAUSE SHE IS THE ONLY PERSON WHO IS WILLING TO KISS HIM. OTHER THAN HIS MOTHER HE HAS NEVER EVER TOUCHED A GIRL NOR WOULD HE EVER TRY BECAUSE HE IS SO SCARED. INSTEAND, HE SITS AT HOME ALL DAY IN A BIG BLACK COUSHY CHAIR ON HIS MOST LIKELY OBESE ASS, EATING A TUB OF POPCORN WITH TONS OF BUTTER AND SALT, AND DRINKING DIET DOCTER PEPPER OUT OF A BIG SLURP CONTAINER. HE MOST LIKELY HAS GREASE STAINS ON HIS SHIRT AND SKID MARKS IN HIS TIGHTY-WHITIES. HIS WHOLE LIFE REVOLVES AROUND WIKIPEDIA AND HE THINKS HE'S SO GREAT JUST BECAUSE HE GOT A COUPLE ONLINE AWARDS THAT DONT MEAN SHIT. HE MAKES A LIVING BY SELLING HIS RUNESCAPE ACCOUNT ON EBAY AND THE ONLY WAY HE COULD EVER HOPE TO GET MARRIED OR EVEN TALK TO A HUMAN OF THE OPPOSITE SEX WOULD BE ON SOME STUPID ONLINE GAME LIKE EVERQUEST. HE WEARS GIANT, THICK, BIG BLACK GLASSES AND HE HASNT SHOWERED IN TWO WEEKS. HE HAS A BEARD BECAUSE HE IS TOO LAZY TO SHAVE IT AND HE HASNT CHANGED HIS UNDERWEAR IN MONTHS. HE LIKES CAUSING HARM TO PEOPLE TO MAKE HIM FEEL BETTER ABOUT HIS OWN PITIFUL LIFE. HE IS A LOSER AND THATS ALL HE WILL BE!!
Aw, I love you too, Emstu10. (And he's right: my glasses are kind of ugly.) This is almost better than the Dick someone put on my talk page.
- I am shocked! *shocked face* Is your "big slurp container" attatched to one of those helmets that has the straws coming from it? :P HighwayRainbow Sneakers
- Man, where did AMIB get one of those? I've been hunting all over for one, but I just can't seem to find the last missing piece in my disgustingly pointless masturbatory obese-couch-slug lifestyle. Lucky dog! -- maru (talk) contribs 02:39, 8 April 2006 (UTC)
- The only place I've ever saw one is those bizarre shops that sell Beanie Babies and Beatles style bags and cards.. very fun places actually :P HighwayRainbow Sneakers 10:36, 8 April 2006 (UTC)
(AMIB's old normal userpage would have followed here).
- Intrigued, I took a look around and found that this so-called "love letter" originated here, and that AMIB's response to this outburst, in addition to putting it on his userpage for everyone to see, was to go to Emstu10's talk page and put this message. Also, this occured shortly after Emstu10 wrote something similar on the discussion page here.
