Vehicular collision, you functional retard. An "accident" implies it's nobody's fault: it disclaims moral responsibility while accepting physical culpability. It's not as if you did it by intent, so you have no moral impetus to change your behavior, and you are a victim of circumstance.

Did you miss the part about

If Nemosine gets featured as a new leader in Fountain Pen Magazine, well... it's a fountain pen magazine; it's dedicated to the topic, thus not notable.

Oh, no, you didn't. You said some other business magazine should cover it.

Also, a lot of magazines have become e-periodicals. I had to fight with The Baltimore Sun because I recently ordered their newspaper, and they started giving me the e-periodical without sending a physical newspaper! I paid $40 extra for the god damn newspaper! They started delivery two weeks later, although their system accounted for four deliveries which were never made--but which I was charged for. There were flames and unfriendly words.

So Wikipedia notability ignores Web sites like PenHero; but that's okay because you're not notable for featuring prominently in published glossy paper like The Pennant, either, because The Pennant is about fountain pens and it's not notable to be featured in a prominent magazine dedicated to the topic you're featured for. You have to feature in Forbes, but be about Yogurt manufacturing.

Do you get the feeling this filters out notable niche markets entirely? It filters out anything the average person would have never heard about because he's not a part of some specific subgroup. It would filter out fursuiting or whatever they're calling Disney mascots these days if the media didn't make a huge deal about furries one time, ten years ago.

It's an encyclopedia of pop culture.

Why would a business magazine care about a fountain pen company? They're selling to a niche market.

Goulet nibs are known as the best nibs you can possibly get, and they don't have a Wikipedia article. Every time you get a fountain pen, get on any of the popular forums or on Reddit /r/fountainpens, and people are like, "Try putting a Goulet nib in it!" Everyone writes with Goulet nibs.

Well, everyone in a tiny hobbyist market that writes with fountain pens, anyway.

It's like writing a Wikipedia article for Estes Industries. Nobody fucking cares, except a few retards who think launching cardboard paper towel tubes makes them science geeks.

Oh, wait, there *is* a Wikipedia article for Estes Industries.

Notability on Wikipedia requires a non-dedicated source to notice it. So Nemosine pens becoming quite popular among fountain pen enthusiasts (Nemosine is a disruptive company) is not notable, because nobody cares about fountain pens except for people who care about fountain pens. If Nemosine gets featured as a new leader in Fountain Pen Magazine, well... it's a fountain pen magazine; it's dedicated to the topic, thus not notable.

But does it explain why everyone pointing out the global cooling trend and the halt of global warming over the past decade or so gets shouted down with "THERE IS NO SUCH THING GLOBAL WARMING HAS NEVER STOPPED!"?

I've been pointing out the halt in global warming trends for a year; the UK and Europe at large have been looking at the cooling trend, worrying about global cooling. I keep getting told to stop smoking what I'm smoking, because no such thing is happening, and I'm probably reading some crackpot site like Mericola or something stupid.

Now this. Science explains it.

Science explains the crackpot shit I've been spouting, that isn't really happening.

What's up with that?

The Office of Inspector General told me any viewing of child pornography re-victimizes the person in the image and, therefor, upon discovering any child pornography, I must report it to OIG and immediately cease use of computer for fear of causing harm to someone, somewhere, by stumbling upon more child pornography.

The hard drives are scanned for matching fingerprints of known child pornography, then completely purged. You can't rescue any files from the drives, at all, so I hope you have back-ups which magically aren't possibly tainted with child pornography.

Honestly I think the whole thing is silly and blown out of proportion. Who cares about child pornography? Why aren't we shutting down the human trafficking rings instead? Nobody suffers when I download The Simpsons, so I would assume nobody suffers when some fat dude in his basement downloads Victoria's Seventh-Grade Secret or whatever nonsense.

Won't somebody think of the children, instead of the pictures of the children?

The Hugo awards come from the audience. The audience is a bunch of drooling retards. Also, I'm surprised XKCD got the graphic story thing.

Seriously, Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games are largely a joke. And they're bringing out Dragon Tattoo movies. You won't see Gateway or The Gap Cycle as a dramatic long-form series (it's too fucking massive to run as a set of movies); I would love to produce The Gap Cycle as a scifi-drama-epic narrative in an opera-style, as the prose won't translate to modern theatrical style. ("He looked over at the alarming medistat screen. It said he was awake. No shit. It also said...")

You really want the Nebula awards.

Some people have a great ambition: to build something that will last, at least until they've finished building it.

Working...
