Latest Wikipedia Uproar Over 'Superprotection'

BradMajors Re:Too much good content is deleted at Wikipedia. (239 comments)

Notability is important for preventing a potentially slippery slope towards Wikipedia being expected to have an article on every shop, every street, every apartment complex, every popular teacher, and every creative work ever appreciated by more than 10 people.

The Billion-Dollar Website

BradMajors useless website (194 comments)

The worst part is there is no reason why the Obamacare websites even need to exist.

BradMajors Re:Since When (66 comments)

I have received over $1,000 in class action lawsuits. For me, the big payouts occurred when very few persons joined the class because no notice was given to anyone of those affected that a class action lawsuit even existed.
