    Hi Guys

    Part way through listening to the first episode for 2019 and thought I’d chip in on your maybe scam Wikipedia page thing. Yor might be a scam is definitely a scam. Simple reason – you don’t need any special permission to create or edit a Wikipedia page. It says right at the top of the home page – the free encyclopaedia anyone can edit.

    The easiest way to get a wiki page about yourself is to create an account, log on and start writing. Some pedantic editor will probably tag your page for instant deletion on the grounds that you aren’t famous enough because some pedantic dickhead does that for all new pages but chances are the editors will then argue about your relative famousness for years and never get round to deleting the page.

    Just fill it with links to stuff (your uni, fields of research, colleagues, luminaries in the field etc) and it will look far more impressive than any of you actually are.

    Cheers
    Dave
