Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
Did you know Crouch End has a Wikipedia page. It's got the Bob Dylan "Is Dave in?" story and the Stephen King visit on it. And of course you do know that you can make changes to it. If you're tired of Facebook you could add a recommendation for your favourite nailbar.
I've just removed the reference to the "Crouch End Project" which seems to be massively defunct.
And Dubmill has removed the reference to "London's Creative Village" simply because he thinks it's not. Dubmill's contributions have given rise to a dyslexic set of non sequiturs on Facebook which is really quite surprisingly present on Facebook
You can see the changes if you wish. Joe90 was up till the small hours today beavering away on apostrophes and stuff.
Had a visit. It's as hopeless as last time I looked - so I guess I'm happy to see people having a go. Especially since I can't be arsed myself, it's potentially an endless task...
I've put in a correction pointing out that Watling Street was further to the west.
The ding dong seems to have surfaced on social media https://twitter.com/cazroz/status/1027676679920074752
I thought this effort was poor. Perhaps in a telephone box vandalism needs to be unsubtle and in your face. But in an encyclopedia it should be rather the opposite. Subtly but importantly incorrect and couched in terms that will delight the pedant. That's how I do my vandalism on Wikipedia.
The perpetrator of this rather poor effort styles itself Gavin Bungay and boasted of the effort in the Not The Crouch End Appreciation Society. For a while I was very pleased with my membership of the NTCEAS as an escape mechanism from the other CE Facebook pages, which are populated mainly by a smug self satisfied crew of the self congratulatory sailing implacably along on a sea of complacency. But now I need a new lifeboat.
Though, in a glimpse perhaps of rescue I like the way this question was dealt with.
I've always felt egalitarianism was a bit passive aggressive.
