Talk:PowWow (chat program)
look, some ***** came in here and erased everything about how the company was racist and had a racist web page.
you so and so, if you ever do anything like that again, you will rot even deeper in hell than you are probably already going to rot.
i also love how you change the phrases 'the parent company killed the product' to 'so and so shut down the offices', and other corporate double speak bullcaca you spew.
it makes me want to vomit.
fortunately on wikipedia, at least for now, we are all equal. you dont have a badge on your shirt or some fancy title, with an army of lawyers behind you to assure you you are being ethical and righteous to lie out your ass about what this company did.
and dont forget. no matter how m any times you try to lie, i will be there, waiting, to edit these lies, and destroy them, and replace them with the truth, which is clearly visible to all who knew what really happened. you cannot erase the evils of the past. you can only apologize for them. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs) 13:36, 9 October 2004 (UTC)
- I have no clue who you are talking to, but I assure you, if you continue such personal attacks (even to mid-air), this goes against Wikipedia policy. I checked the history of the page and see no such revert, unless you're referring to my cleanup of your edit. --Golbez 20:42, Oct 9, 2004 (UTC)
- now i called whoever edited the article a liar. thats what happened. however, i must admit that calling them a 'sack of crap' was overboard. now maybe i could tone down my criticism a little bit but that doesnt make me wrong in the facts. someone edited this page and removed references to the 'native american trust', which was a sham company and which was involved in the powwow chat client. look at the history , here is an excerpt of what was erased
- "This company's website initially described itself as a 'Native American' company and had a Native American-themed web site and was run by native americans. It was supposedly funded by a company named the Native American Trust, which seems to have existed only in order to support Tribal Voice and had no other involvement with Native American communities. This was an example of Twinkie-ism by the founders. A website was set up by Paula Giese to expose the sham. In its front page, she said the following:
- "'To Summarize: Tribal voice is not only a fake -- having nothing t0o do with Indian people but 4exploitation, but it is also sacreligious, with offensive material for just about every major Nsative tribe.'
- "She also traded emails with company officials, who blew her off."
- this is all gone from the 'cleaned up' version of the article.... but removing ugly facts is not the same thing as 'cleaning'
I personally enjoyed using Tribal Voice back in the late nineties. I am sorry that it was claimed to be founded by Native Americans who felt that they were once again being exploited. But as for me it never occurred to me that this site had anything to do with Navojo, or Cherokee, or any other tribe other than a bunch of normal WASPS who wanted to chat, draw, and hook up. 184.108.40.206 20:44, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
