Have Jimmy Wales and our burro had a falling out? I ask because Donk’s wiki page has been substantially revised and these new, honest revisions have been up for weeks. Four RBDers have even emailed us about the changes. Note the emendation in the first sentence:
Julia Allison (born Julia Allison Baugher on February 28, 1981) is a former dating columnist, blogger, television commentator, and public speaker who also appeared on one season of reality television.
The education section:
Allison graduated in 1999 from New Trier High School. Allison went to Indiana University in 1999. She transferred to Georgetown University in 2000, where she received a bachelor’s degree in Government in 2004. During college, she wrote a dating column for the campus newspaper, The Hoya, and while she was writing for this newspaper she was investigated for plagiarism.
During her Georgetown years Allison dated many medical students and, according to the issue of Wired magazine in which she appears on the cover, she became known as “the Medstitute”. She worked as a legislative correspondent for Illinois Republican congressman Mark Kirk in the 107th Congress, later, during the 2004 election, contributing political commentary for Comcast TV.
The final three paragraphs of the “Writing and Media Appearances” section:
In June of 2018, Allison wrote an article for the New York Post concerning her psychological defects after moving to NYC and taking on the persona of Carrie Bradshaw from the HBO series Sex and the City. Allison described in this article how she lived her life according to Carrie Bradshaw while feeling insecure and fake. This article was published in relation to the 20th anniversary of the HBO series Sex and the City. Many people across the Internet accused Allison of lying several times about herself in this article, including about her own statement that she attended Georgetown University in 1999. Not only does her own article omit her attendance at Indiana University as the first college she attended after high school, but also it fails to make clear that she was not accepted to Georgetown until the year 2000.
Business Insider reported in its April 5, 2012 piece on Allison’s reality show Miss Advised that there is a hate blog devoted to Julia Allison that has been published online for over ten years. This hate blog has been studied and reported on in peer-reviewed journals.
Allison has stated that “women have an expiration date,” after which they are no longer worthy of marriage, among other questionable statements on womanhood, and it is statements like the aforementioned one that have infuriated her reader-base and a segment of the population that gathers together to analyze her life and choices. Allison admitted in the 2018 New York Post article that she has been called, “the most hated person on the Internet.”
Whoa! as Alley Katz would say. And yes, by drawing attention to these changes, we’re courting their removal, though some have citations and news is news.
Moving on, Frequent Liar Miles has been missing Jess Magic, AKA, Fauxdetta, so I thought we’d check up on The Caterwauler. One of her most recent IG snaps is above. Jaahass did attend April’s Bali Spirit Fest (sans Donkey), but it looks as though the event ended in Guyana-esque tragedy:
Thankfully, Jaahass survived and played another smellfest in May. She then jetted to Australia with Petey Pineapple, her wootastic boyfriend, to surprise his mother on Mother’s Day. Can you imagine having to listen to this voice for an entire weekend?
Update: Someone (a burro?) is attempting to have Donk’s Wikipedia page removed. Five days ago, from the “Recommend for Deletion” section of her wiki talk page:
Running Desk Errands (talk) 00:46, 24 June 2019 (UTC)Other than a short-lived “reality” show on a cable network 7 years ago and a NY Post article last year, she has done nothing publicly noteworthy in a decade. All of the details in her entry are at least a decade old. Virtually nothing new since 2009. DELETE! 00:46, 24 June 2019 (UTC)Running Desk Errands (talk)
Do not delete this article! It does not matter whether Julia Allison passes away tomorrow or in 100 years and never works again; that she was a famous public figure in the early 2000s by way of doing nothing or by way of blogging or reporting and made hundreds of appearances all over the media is sufficient for publication on wikipedia for the rest of wikipedia’s existence! The article she wrote in 2018 for the NY Post was extremely important.
Why would a user even suggest a deletion based on the subject “not doing anything new”? That is not logical or the way reporting or keeping an encyl works! In fact, to suggest a deletion because a subject stopped working is the reverse of everything that Wikipedia stands for and its mission. That suggests that people who have retired or left the public simply have no work worth reporting on or an “expiration date” as Julia Allison likes to suggest. In fact, I think the person calling for this deletion might be Julia Allison attempting another revision of history.
