'''David Wainwright Gerard''' (also known as '''Red Drag Diva''') is a senior [[bureaucratic fuck]] on [[TOW]] and sysadmin on [[RationalWiki]] who openly uses his real name on the site. David Gerard is meant to be an indication of just how serious Wikipedia is at becoming a well-known and respected encyclopaedia.
  
Gerard's favorite weapon is the [[Wikipedia:WP:CLUE|Clue Stick]], although you will never see him hit himself with it. He's an over-50 [[bisexual]] [[polyamorous]] twatfenster goth from Western Australia, who speaks with a carefully cultivated faux-London accent, since he's lived in the UK for many years and fears being sent back to [[Ausfailia]], where bogan prison and face-rapes await. Currently, he's on the waiting list for a vaginoplasty. And works for Dell UK as a minor server sysop.

== About David Gerard ==
 
* David Gerard banned a Utah ISP as an "open proxy used by [[WordBomb]]" indefinitely and eventually this got on the news. [http://www.heraldextra.com/content/view/248315/3/]
 
* David Gerard is the official [[TOW]] media spokesperson for the [[United Kingdom]]. And a shitty one at that.
 
* David Gerard swears like mad, goes on power trips, and brags about it, while [[hipocrite|complaining that others aren't civil enough]].
 
* David Gerard is a senior administrator on unfunny joke site [[Uncyclopedia]].
 
* David Gerard [http://encyclopediadramatica.se/index.php?title=Talk:David_Gerard&diff=326043 likes ED and all attack sites] (except for the wussy [[Wikipedia Review]]).
 
* David Gerard has a girlfriend, [[Arkady]], who he got pregnant, while married to another woman.
 
* David Gerard's (ex)wife Red Countess is [[retard|disabled]].
 
* David Gerard's (ex)wife has [[lesbian|her own girlfriend]].
 
* David Gerard is heavily interested in [[BDSM]].
 
* David Gerard has [http://reddragdiva.co.uk/ his own web page full of freaky pictures] - of himself.
 
* David Gerard calls his [[LJ]] a "[[What|Diary of an Information Technology call girl]]."
 
* David Gerard makes excuses to [[wikipedia:Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Grover_Furr|censor pages on TOW]] that differ from his own opinions.
 
* David Gerard was one of Wikipedia's first checkusers and [[oversight]]ers, and is probably the worst abuser of these two functions in TOW history.
 
* David Gerard probably operates a bureaucrat-level sockpuppet called [[wikipedia:User:Maxim|Maxim]].
 
* "[[MTF|Red Drag Diva]]" is an anagram of "David Gerard".
 
* If David Gerard says you're not the founder of [[TOW]], [http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=History_of_Wikipedia&diff=next&oldid=4312571 you're not the fucking founder] ([http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Log/delete&page=Ben_Kovitz goodbye] [[Ben Kovitz]], nice knowing you).
 
* David Gerard claims to be a "psi vampire".
 
* He denies it, but it's almost certain he runs [[Lemonparty]] on a server he owns.
 
*David's wife, Redcountess, has left him and has returned to Australia forever.  David then got engaged to Arkady.
 
*Oops, [[Arkady]] bailed on him. Back to the giant black dildo collection!
 
 
 
== You know what's really scary? ==
 
All of this is ''absolutely'' true.  It hasn't been altered for [[lulz]].  This is 100% actual factual truth.  It doesn't need to be lullified.  He really is a bisexual goth s&m freak with a disabled wife and [[furry]] girlfriend, and he got that girlfriend pregnant, while his wife has her own girlfriend.  He really is a senior member of [[Wikipedia]] - the motherfucking UK media spokesperson and a Checkuser.  He is meant to be respectable!  He uses his real name in all of this.  These are his real photos that he took himself, and has listed for public download.  It is very difficult to find "normal" pictures of him - or Arkady - or "Red Countess" (his (ex)wife).  It is just plain and simply impossible to make any fun of him any worse than this.  What more could you say that isn't actually true already?  David Gerard himself is disappointed that this article doesn't make fun of him more.
 
 
 
==Anti-$cientology==
 
David Gerard migrated to [[TOW]] with a group of anti-[[Scientology]] buddies from [[alt.religion.scientology]], notable [[Kelly Martin]] and [[Tony Sidaway]] who are both to a degree transexuals like David. It is unknown if David participates in the [[Project Chanology]] IRL protests but it would be a sad loss if he did not because his ugly-sex-vampire-like, mock Lucius Malfoy, dress-wear would make for memes better than [[gas mask girl]].
 
 
 
== Virgin Killer ==
 
Inevitably, David Gerard was in the lead on [[Virgin Killer]], going onto the radio to protest at ISPs having the temerity to want to protect their customers from illegal child porn. "[[Lie|Wikipedia is not censored]]" he foamed.
 
 
 
It was discovered that David has a vested interest in keeping porn sites up and running, being [http://wikipediareview.com/index.php?showtopic=21845&st=0&p=146455&#entry146455 the proprietor of] [[Lemonparty]].
 
 
 
== Checkuser and Oversight Revoked ==
 
Gerard's CU and OS flags were yanked as a result of [[Lulz|posting confidential communications on a public site]], and making abusive [[Twitter|Tweets]] and [http://davidgerard.co.uk/notes/2009/11/27/andrew-landeryou-appears-to-be-a-waste-of-skin/ blog posts] about Andrew Landeryou, a Wikipedia user and the subject of a BLP article. The Arbcommies posted an announcement about this and screwed up, and abused oversight to cover up its tracks. Here are the email and tweets, in case they get deleted. Oversight this, Arbcommies:

Mr Gerard,
 
 
 
I am told you made reference to me in your musings on Twitter. I don't know
 
you, would rather not have to become familiar with who you are and what on
 
Earth possessed you to comment so freely about me or to edit Wikipedia to
 
say absurd things about me.
 
 
 
Your entitled to your opinion of me but I think it might be best for you to
 
discuss claims you make about me with me first. If you don't, I'll promise
 
to return the favour after an investigation into exactly what ails you. And
 
that really would be a waste of time for me and a very unpleasant outcome
 
for you, so I urge you to Twit more carefully in future.
 
 
 
Yours sincerely
 
 
 
Andrew Landeryou
 
 
 
I look forward to an exchange involving pie charts.
 
 
 
p.s.: if you don’t want your months-long-running Wikipedia shenanigans remembered, it helps not to have done them. Oops, too late.
 
</pre>

==Deep-cleaning of TOW userpage==
 
 
 
Gerard sanitized his "bisexual-friendly" [[wikipedia:User:David_Gerard|TOW user page]] in early January 2011 when [http://www.facebook.com/jimmywales2012?v=info Jimbo floated the idea of running for U.S. Senate (R-FL) 2012] - a plan <s>likely to sag</s> which flopped faster than [[Carly Fiorina]]'s failed attempt for the same in California and perhaps even faster than her plastic [[Barbie]]-doll tits. For this remarkable accomplishment, Gerard gets a [[wikicide]] honorable mention.
 
 
 
== Recent Activities ==
 
 
 
Unlike the stereotypical crazy old men of yore who would be content with yelling at children to get off their lawn and turn down their music, Gerard instead spends his twilight years snarking and sneering at the Millenial whippersnappers who disagree with him. With the icy grasp of Death growing nearer and nearer to the aging Gerard as each day passes, Gerard appears content with puttering around various wikis, {{archive|3bJoe|bitching about bitcoins}} on [[reddit]] (and complaining about {{archive|LeUKx#selection-4015.124-4015.211|wrongthinking redditors}} off-site), {{archive|TGM4H|griping}} about [[GamerGate]], attempting to recruit a new anti-Gamergate sperg to {{archive|saVrG|replace Ryulong}}, {{archive|juh5G#selection-5935.1-5935.66|name searching RationalWiki}} on Twitter, {{archive|EMJbx#selection-14143.0-14143.109|talking shit}} and {{archive|Yiyp2#selection-369.0-369.7|lying}} because someone wouldn't work on RationalWiki's outdated software, [https://tweetsave.com/rationalwiki/status/780800799018483713 shilling his blogs], keeping the manchildren and autists of RationalWiki {{archive|P0Oa0|under control}}, and, disturbingly, {{archive|IgVqv#selection-1721.1-1721.34|abusing his RationalMedia Foundation position to protect pedophiles}}.
 
 
 
Considering his stance on the ''Virgin Killer'' incident, it is sadly not a surprise that Gerard would have continued to go to bat for pedophiles as the years went by. While the full extent of his pedophile apologia is unknown, observers have caught Gerard threatening users and using his position of power at RationalWiki in order to defend self-admitted pedophiles.
 
 
 
On November 19th, 2015, a RationalWiki user named {{archive|gqw1F|Tallulah}} became disgusted at seeing RationalWiki's whitewashing of self-confessed pedophile [[Sarah Nyberg|Nicholas "Sarah" Nyberg]], and tried to amend the article because, "You don't have to be a gator to see Nyberg's chatlogs are effing creepy." Tallulah soon encountered fierce resistance from [[Ryulong]] and Gerard (both of which {{archive|ceQpa|were friends with Nyberg}} on Twitter): they {{archive|zt4U7#selection-681.0-1095.76|edit warred}}, {{archive|YEqZo#selection-907.0-941.32|yelled at her}} on the Talk page and tried to invoke a ''Biographies of Living Persons'' policy, {{archive|qgm5B#selection-5319.0-5565.76|abused sysop tools}} to keep the truth about Nyberg suppressed, threatened to {{archive|wC4Qg#selection-867.1-867.34|invoke the RationalMedia Foundation}} and ban people for discussing Nyberg, {{archive|vAO1x#selection-735.19-735.97|blocked Tallulah}} for three months, and {{archive|9Gve2#selection-9115.1-9115.13|tried to intimidate}} another user into silence.
 
 
 
Despite Gerard's posturing, some of the user base {{archive|baIFz#selection-949.1-949.22|questioned his actions and threat to involve the RationalMedia board}} and Gerard was proven to be full of shit like usual. They unblocked Tallulah and continued to discuss pedophile Nick Nyberg until they {{archive|wC4Qg#selection-1129.0-1199.32|got tired of dealing with Ryulong}}.
 
 
 
Almost a month later, Ryulong had [[Flounce|flounced]], but his pedophile apologia remained in the articles. On December 16th, 2015, there was {{archive|l9BwS#selection-9519.1-9519.8|renewed discussion}} about how to deal with it. Since people were editing the GamerGate pages, Ryulong had returned and was continuing to {{archive|l9BwS#selection-9637.0-9637.475|defend the pedophile}}. On the 18th, Gerard got butthurt and shut down discussions of Nyberg, {{archive|wC9su#selection-385.0-483.1|protecting the Talk pages}} and {{archive|ycFij|wiping the discussions}}. Three users (Arcane, Aneris, and Seriously) who were critical of Nyberg, Ryulong, and Gerard also found themselves {{archive|r443A#selection-551.1-551.71|logged out of their accounts, their recovery emails removed, IPs blocked, and the passwords scrambled}}. While Aneris' account was eventually restored to normal, the other two {{archive|WMeSS|appear}} to {{archive|wR6NG#selection-1617.0-1617.238|have not been}} and these three were the only ones who ever reported it happening to them. With Gerard being the only one to have access at the database level, it seems likely he could have been so buttblasted that he did this to get revenge and jerk himself off to their frustration.
 
 
 
Another user called [http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Banned_main Banned main] had left a {{archive|ByL5a|response to Ryulong}} on his own Talk page since Gerard had chimped out and protected the GamerGate pages. Gerard discovered this (or more likely was sent there by Ryulong) two days later and {{archive|74W6d|RevDel'd}} Banned main's comment, then {{archive|vAO1x#selection-565.0-603.36|blocked him}} and added {{archive|PdFbf#selection-515.1-515.36|"Inappropriate personal information"}} as a new "Serious" reason to block someone on RationalWiki. The "inappropriate personal information" was links to Nyberg talking about little girls and his 8-year-old cousin (who he called his "lgf" or 'little girlfriend') in archived {{archive|e1eB3#selection-635.0-645.1|chat logs from Nyberg's own site}} and evidence that Nyberg had panicked and made efforts to hide these logs once they were discovered.
 
 
 
Tallulah returned on January 11th, 2016 and tried again to change the article so it wasn't white knighting for a pedophile and {{archive|iMpKr|"obscuring the facts."}} {{archive|6dODj#selection-19289.0-19623.1|Gerard began edit warring}} with her and quickly gave her a {{archive|sD0xE#selection-283.71-285.62|9-hour block}} for edit warring against him. Tallulah returned the next day and {{archive|dJ1jA|wrote}} in her user space in protest of the constant whitewashing and lying being done by Gerard and others to protect a pedophile.

David Wainwright Gerard (also known as Red Drag Diva) is a senior bureaucratic fuck on TOW and sysadmin on RationalWiki who openly uses his real name on the site. David Gerard is meant to be an indication of just how serious Wikipedia is at becoming a well-known and respected encyclopaedia.
