My Apology to Mary Woodbury for Misunderstanding the Nature of her Database. She has corrected the record and all good now. Thanks, Mary.



Mary left a comment here on July 1, writing:


{Hello Dan}, Three things:

1. [not pertinent here]

2. The database is a database of climate/eco-fiction novels, showing the major categories within these fields and does not have a bias for/against any particular subgenre. I don't use "eco-fiction" at the database, either. [For the same reason she doesn't use ''climate fiction.'']

3. ''Climate fiction,'' and other subgenres, are mentioned at eco-fiction.com [just not in the database genre labels]. I just interviewed David Brin, for instance, and we chatted about ''climate fiction'' in today's world.

I replied a few days later when I learned she had commented: "Thank you, Mary. I will revise this post to reflect this new info. And sorry for any misunderstandings I had over this. All good now. Again, my apologies. We are all working on all this together and communication among different parties is important. Thanks for the comments and updates, Mary."

I accidentally deleted my comment instead of editing it. Three things:

1. I am not the editor you are referring to at Wikipedia. That was someone else, and I've already told you this a couple years ago.
2. The database is a database of climate/eco-fiction novels, showing the major categories within these fields and does not have a bias for/against any particular subgenre. I don't use "ecofiction" at the database either.
3. Climate fiction, and other subgenres, are mentioned at eco-fiction.com. I just interviewed David Brin, for instance, and we chatted about climate fiction in today's world.

Mary, i know you are *not* that Canadian professor at Wikipedia who ranted and raged for a year in her efforts to make an impact on the site, and I believe you. But i found some traces of that professor's background here, since she used the ID of ''LynnS79'' as her Wiki ID, now since erased and deleted, in order to delete her footprint and any traces of who she is, and this is what i found: mlynn.websitename.com and this mlynn professor listed her birthday at October 16, 1979, so LynnS79 *could be* this ''mLynn'' professor with the 79 her birth year since she listed her fake birthday as 1979 on an SFF forum she participated in once, and the S standing for her maiden name, such as Sandoval or Sandowsky or Sacolov. But again, i have no idea. Just interesting the coincidence of the mLynn website that is how i found her. see: http://mlynn.kinja.com/climate-change-in-literature-and-the-arts-1644566007

maybe that BC professor who has disappeared at Wiki disappeared on purpose because she later realzied her pseudonym ID at Wiki could very well be traced back to who she really is and at what university she teaches sociology at. You once told me she a friend of yours, so you know more about this than I do. Anyways, according to Wiki rules, one should not out other Wiki editors and so I will never out her or say her name since that is the against the rules, but maybe one day after she realizes the sin she committed by lying left and right about her real identity, for example she was NOT a professor at any Canadian university, and so maybe she will one day confess and admit to herself what she did was unethical and unprofessional. But again, I have NO IDEA who she is and I don't care. This is up to her to confess and admit her wrongdoing. I don't believe she ever will, because people who get caught in a lie, with their hand in the cookie jar, they never admit the truth. Just like Trump and his fake news, this fake BC professor tried to sell a fake ID to fellow Wiki editors and she ALMOST succceeded, but finally even the Wiki admins were able to trace her back to her real identity. She will confess in 2025 maybe. I can wait.

nota bene:
WHO was ''LYNNS79'' at Wiki? This website sheds some light on who her friends were.

Her user ID at Wiki was 316334472 and her pseudonymous Wiki ID, among several she has used on Wiki, was "LynnS79". It's all still there at Wiki archives and all her posts and chats as well, in her own distinctive way of writing and word usage which gives her writing a distinctive feel: words like ''From the get-go,'' and "a bundle of issues" and many many more. It all leads back to the way that Canadian professor in BC writes, too. So they might be the same person. Whoever that person might be. And I have no idea. It couldn't be Mary because she says very clearly in her comment above that it wasn't her and I believe her.




She first started her posts about climate ficiton on May 8, 2014, under the name of LynnS79 and notice that this ''mLynn'' person below in the first link posted her post at the kinja site under the ID of "mLynn" on May 9, 2014. The very next day. So was mLynn doing the work for someone else, whose name we will never know? Very well could be. Notice the Kinja userid has been changed now to avoid detection but the archives show the name ''mLynn'' right there in plain English. Coincidence?

M could stand for many things: em, Emily, Emilene, Maryanne, Martha, Mordecai.



LOOK!

So who was ''mLynn''? No idea. and why did she use 'S' as her initial of her surname Socovosky maybe? And why did she post her birthday at 79 when she did register her birthday on a SFF forum once as October 16, 1979.



Then again, who she was is no longer relevant. I know who she was but I will never out her in public since Wiki rules say we should never out fellow editors. So her secret will remain a secret with me too. Not important.



I guess her name was Em Lynn Socolovsky who is listed as a professor at a Canadian university, although her website no longer works. The trail has been lost. She's on her own now.
