  • "Is Wikipedia a battleground in the culture wars?" followed by multiple in-brief stories in which Wikipedia is a battleground for cultural history. More like, "Wither the WP:NOTBATTLEGROUND?" – czar 19:13, 31 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]
  • Not having a "Cultural Marxism" article, I can understand. Putting it in the "Frankfort School" article... OK, I can see that... but under the subsection heading of "Conspiracy theory"? When the entire contents of the subsection is about the concept of "Cultural Marxism"? This aversion to even having the sub heading so much as contain the subject term is just plain bizarre.

  • I can't help but notice that the LinkedIn article's top comment has someone admitting to be a paid editor. Kinda concerning to say you're doing something that is frowned upon here. GamerPro64 00:33, 2 August 2015 (UTC)[reply]
  • Wikipedia has various FRINGE headings that include the descriptor "Conspiracy Theory", Cultural Marxism is one such fringe theory. In this case the theory (that the Frankfurt School are somehow responsible for multiculturalism, political correctness and various other social issues and rights groups) is factually incorrect on multiple fronts (many of the accused rights groups pre-date The Frankfurt School, and the philosopher who coined the modern usage of "Politically Correct" explicitly and on record denies any influence from The Frankfurt School). On top of these demonstrable factual errors, the theory meets the requirements of both WP:FRINGE as well as Michael Barkun's description of a Systemic conspiracy theory (as found over on the Conspiracy theory page). Anyone interested in discussing this matter further, is welcome to join the open editorial discussion over on The Frankfurt School talk page - just remember as one editor above has already pointed out Wikipedia is NOT a BATTLEGROUND. --Jobrot (talk) 03:38, 24 August 2015 (UTC)[reply]
