One Woman’s Brilliant “Fuck You” to Wikipedia Trolls
Andrew McMillen

I forgot to mention — I’ve long suspected a lot of chauvinism and sexism in the Wikipedia moderator/editor community. Sometimes it’s tiny things in the way articles are written, other times it’s pretty obvious there’s a bias. I had a friend many years ago (2001) who was involved in a giant internal ‘war’ between factions of Wikipedia contributors — he was effectively pushed out, and stopped contributing in disgust.

So, ignominious behaviours by power-seeking factions inside the Wikipedia community has been going for a long time, and it’s why I don’t believe the impartial facade Wikipedia puts on. Behind the scenes, there’s filthy, grubby backstabbing politicking, just like any other collection of humans. I’ve donated once or twice, but I know much of the material is biased, incorrect, and skewed.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
