Ohhh lets go all give money to wikipedia… hey jim wales said “Imagine a world in which every single person on the planet is given free access to the sum of all human knowledge.” ooohhh when he says beautiful stuff like that … gawd that just brings a single tear down my face, they really must need money, i just have a tiny bit of a problem with this (actually have many… and told them already with wikipedia sucks ) so i’ll just work on that late post, wikipedia doesn’t just suck, they suck balls..
The “traditional” encyclopedia is a bunch of paid experts that give their insight into subjects that they are, well, experts of, so its a form of elitist knowledge, i have no problem with that, you get what you pay for… but wikipedia was different, at first its was a truly free for all like jimmy said of a sort of sum of all human knowledge… i’ll repeat ALL HUMAN KNOWLEDGE, but what we have now with wikipedia is the sum of knowledge of a very restrict group of people, really! try and open a new article or add something to any article and check it out, its fucking idiotic, no new user can really add anything of relevance to wikipedia… its like a reversed britannica, but at least with britannica i have some assurance of quality and expertise and not a bunch of anonymous users that just cause they can point some article on the web to prove their point then apparently it is the truth or that after they did some months of grunt work or troll that they now are apparently experts on shit, and yes… wikipedia loves shit, ohh you wont find cover bands or new up and coming music acts or obscure tribes in amazon, but sure as hell you can know the entire storyline of a single pokemon character and crossover characters and that ohhh so sad obscure never before shown episode were psyduck is gutted by pikachu, yeah i want some of that sweet wikipedia knowledge… yum yum
And what about the wikipedia foundation… laundering money are we? if not, at least its the same group of idiotic morons that want to get paid, the last time i checked you don’t need a foundation and a board of directors to keep the site online you don’t need all this bureaucracy to make something shine, the people that contribute also help run… what’s the fuck with that, its simple, they need the catchy name and foundation(tm) so they can skip on taxes to get more respectability to get more donations and to get themselves some money’s… or something like that, its fucking shady as hell and even if wikipedia foundation was a wonderful foundation, wikipedia would still fuck balls, my recommendation… make donations with your credit card and then make charge backs stating that you donated with the understanding that all human knowledge was on wikipedia and they made you donate under false pretenses….. fuckers
