"a past member of the Burned Furs"[edit]

What exactly is meant by this? What was his involvement? And is it in the past purely because the burned furs group died, or because he left because he disagreed with it (or was he kicked out)? Is there a reference for this to find out more? --Chibiabos 23:46, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

It means he was a past member of the Burned Furs, by his own statement. What did he mean by that exactly? You could ask him, I guess. Crush! Yiff! Destroy! suggests that he was trying to "defend the furry world against the specter of misinformation". --GreenReaper(talk) 09:02, 11 September 2006 (UTC)
Hmmm, guess I got my answer just by reviewing the talk page for Burned Furs. --Chibiabos 04:17, 12 September 2006 (UTC)


Is the whole bit about villifying Pat Buchanan really needed in the politics section? I mean hell, we didn't come to this article to read about how bad old Pat was, maybe we could just link to 'contreversy' in his Wikipedia article instead.

Not like Malcomson was even the most vocal opponent, or the reason Mr. Buchanan left that party. I realize this is politics, and people get emotional when one candidate who lost bashes on another candidate who lost in the same party, but the charged diction and pointless details are really unbecoming of an encyclopedia style article. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 13:43, 17 September 2006

Agreed. I'll see if I can clean it up a little! --Lynn Onyx 00:31, 4 January 2007 (UTC)
Naturally, it is rare that any one person can claim to have driven out any one other person from a given political party. That claim is not made anywhere, nor do I suggest I was "the most vocal" opponent, or even that Buchanan was "evil". I do not, therefore, see any merit in the anonymous poster's issues. Since my mutual involvement in politics and furfandom has been made an issue in press articles, and since others made it a point to create my WikiFur entry with a political section to begin with, it is clearly obvious that someone out there does indeed have an interest in knowing about this kind of thing. To that end, I have provided the factual details of the matter. Were Jesse Ventura to declare himself a furry tomorrow, we would inevitably be seeing a political section in his WikiFur, so I can only conclude that the original poster is simply being PoV in their criticism. --Calbeck 8 July 2008
