A crazy week in the news

But the only mentions of Wikipedia involved the Turkey ban.

The week before, there were numerous mentions of China's attempt to create a "Wikipedia killer".

Read the comments below this Gizmodo post. Clueless idiots.

"Whatever they plan on doing it will not compete with Wikipedia at all. Wikipedia is about peer-review, not government review. It will be two completely different services." "Peer review"?? What shit. Wikipedians are not "peers" in any academic sense, they are hapless ADHD nerds who like to talk about military history, videogames and cartoons. And have editwars with people so they can ban someone and feel powerful.
