Re: "The salaries of Wikimedia executives are sparking an online debate about tech sector wages"

What? This is a website for Wikipedia criticism, not just saying "Wikipedia sucks because Wikipedi sucks". If we don't criticize Wikipedia or take action against it, what would be the point of having a forum? There is too much detailed information being presented here without a case being made. IT ...

Re: Time to retire In The News?

I'm still amazed that it continues to exist. Run by complete raving lunatics IMO. 1) Wikipedia is run by, and written, by raving lunatics doing their own thing. Could it just be as simple as that? 2) Nobody really reads Wikipedia any more; unless you are an Indian Cricket fan, soccer fan, or you ar...

Re: Why Wikipedia’s highway editors took the exit ramp.

1) Aggrieved "Highway" Editors were harassed when they cited the Department of Transportation which is not allowed. Allowed sources, in the media, are becoming more nonsensical. In the case of highways and roads allowed sources are simply non-existent. 2) "Highway" editors were lambasted for researc...
