Ja, this was a list that appeared once on Wikipedia (and promoted by fans of Madonna) but has since been found to be fake. The current version of the article can be found here:

The dunce poster, KB50MJ, applied for an editorship of the Wack0Jack0 forum. He's like the rest of the Wack0Jack0 fanbase who hoist up a pedophile as a god, and just made this post in those newsgroups too because it was "on-topic". The more people who see it, the more his version of reality exists, apparently. <lol>
His version of "news" is quite out of here, innit?

We call people like him f'loons, because they live life in a fantasy world. Come on over to the Michael Jackson forum and see for yourself(ves). The entertainment factor alone is priceless.

Its on many places. It was a press release from 2007 from the IFIP, and you can find this list on many web sites.

Spamming the forum again, K'f'loon?

Temper tantrum f'loon posts would be frowned upon by competent topix admins. They would have second thoughts about approving a spammer to be an editor. Better kill them posts, censorshitboi.

But is true, that list came from the IFPI in 2007 and it was released to the public. You can find this list anywhere on google.

Sure this list is found on many websites, and it is claimed to be sourced from the IFPI, but that is not the case. Unless you can find a genuine source, we'll have to call bullshite on this one f'loonie

Just type in the name on google. This list was floating aroung like crazy around 2007, and it makes sence and it depicts the people's realistic record sales, nit the crap that the record companies give you.

If you knew anything on how the music industry works you would know how accurate the list is.

Now f'loonie, I know it makes sense to you, because you are a f'loonie, but us smart people don't believe things just because it is on a bunch of sites on the interweb. I have seen this list on many sites, but you know what? There is NEVER a link to the supposed source, just some vague talk about the IFPI. It is nowhere to be found on the IFPI website, or even the Wayback Machine - http://web.archive.org/web/ */http://www.ifpi.org - and it isn't mentioned on any news sites. Why, we may as well say that Wacko is guilty because it "makes sense" and "depicts the people's realistic view of him" and you will have to believe us, huh?

You have proven many times you have no knowledge of how the music industry works. You even said that Wacko "composed" all the songs on Thriller, and that is patently untrue.

Once again, calling bullshite on this "news" story.

I didn't say he composed all, I said he composed most.

And those numbers are accurate, because I cacualted them myself.

The Beatels and ELvis selling over a billion is crap, the same with Michael selling 750 million, they are just put out there for publicity.

I cacualted the sales of All top 5 and those numbers are actually very acurate, where ever they came from, the person did a good job.

Did anyone see the nice quote under KB50MJ's profile. He feels himself to be quite omnipotent, it seems:

"I feel MJ News should be given to the public with accurate and honest, editing. And I'm the Man."

I <heart> the comma between "honest" and "editing". How appropriate, huh?

Geez, I never saw such a great f'loon declaration in my life. Including the "cacualted". God knows I'd believe anything anyone of such STELLAR intelligence calculated for *moi*.

Holy crap.
