I doubt it's Wil-Wheaton-specific. I've seen a fair number of people talk about quitting some form of social media or another (though usually not ALL of it); Wheaton's just the biggest (that I'm now aware of). 12:00, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Trivially amusing, I think "fewer" when I read "less nazis" in the explanation; this may make me a grammar Nazi, so instead of editing I'm pleading 261: Regarding Mussolini. Elvenivle (talk) 18:56, 12 September 2018 (UTC)


On June 4, 2018, Microsoft announced its intent to acquire GitHub. This means it isn't acquired yet. Thus I've removed it from the explanation. --Dgbrt (talk) 12:59, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

It was confirmed as a done deal the same day. The purchase is already agreed upon, it will take some months for the merger to be completed. Even if that were not the case, github is still relevant to Microsoft's trend of buying up professional social media platforms. Adding it back in. 17:44, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
I totally agree about Microsoft's trend but it's still only an announcement. Wikipedia says: "The purchase is expected to close by the end of the year" and at GitHub (about; milestones) they say in June 2018 "Microsoft announced it is acquiring GitHub". Sorry if I'm nitpicking, but right now GitHub is NOT owned by Microsoft while the explanation suggests this. --Dgbrt (talk) 18:55, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
It literally does not matter. 22:28, 13 September 2018 (UTC)


I'm pretty sure Texting is supposed to mean SMS. -- Hkmaly (talk) 22:12, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

You are invited to write an additional alternative, I don't think there is something wrong or correct at this point. Your note makes sense. --Dgbrt (talk) 19:00, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Is the Random button on broken for anyone else? 18:45, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Yep, but not here! ;-) --Dgbrt (talk) 19:00, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
And I can tell why: It uses this link but whois tells me: No match for "C.XKCD.COM". This means the domain "" is not registered. Randall should talk to his webmaster. --Dgbrt (talk) 19:08, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
