Louis Epstein,who does wikiedits from IP 12.144.5.2,has made a substantial number of edits here, the first in months, in July 2009. He left Wikipedia at the start of 2006 after disputes over the format and content of the supercentenarian articles he had originated there. Young for the most part was a counter-party in these disputes, though both have had run-ins with Wikipedia bureaucracy and have worked together on supercentenarian cases for about 10 years. Mr. Epstein will continue to contribute here if this wiki's officialdom do not obstruct his tendencies to move the format and content of articles towards what he was not allowed to maintain on Wikipedia...otherwise, he will leave.
