    24 year old Ottawa guy has edited almost 80,000 Wikepdia articles and contributed between 2,000 and 3,000 new articles.......


    Some lovely stuff here:

    In Grade 8, he, attired as Stalin, and other friends re-enacted the Yalta conference on the balcony of a friend's house. In university, he became the Trivial Pursuit champion at his college, and even won when the whole residence took him on.

    Upon graduation (from university), the Ottawa resident took a year off to devote eight to 10 hours a day adding new entries to the site.

    "It's an addiction," said Mr. Pulsifer, who describes himself as anything but self-indulgent in other aspects of his life. He lives at home and doesn't have a girlfriend.

    That last sentence qualifies as the most shocking one of the day so far, folks.

    I could understand if this guy lived in some place like Brampton or Owen Sound, but, man, Ottawa's a great city to party in. Plenty of great bars and thew wonders of Quebec just minutes away.

    The dressing up as Stalin was the thing that broke me up.

    Can you imagine recruiting his friends?

    From the thread title, I'd guessed this was going to be about either me or Bubbler.
