Funny Wiki Processes

A funny thought occurred to me while looking over QuickChanges: if one detaches oneself a bit from the ongoing discussion, work or browsing of pages on Wiki, some processes become - well - funny.

Examples:

Of course, many social processes become funny when one looks at them from an appropriate distance. I think, it must be somewhat like looking at a - more or less unusual - animal society. Probably, aliens looking at human intercourse would wonder about us that way all the time. :-)

Historical note: These patterns (spotted sometime in 2004) are no longer present, probably due to the EditCodeWord and other changes.


With the advent of NewRecentChanges, it is even easier to spot these processes.

Some examples:
