John H. Gohde – Anyone Can Edit Wikipedia

John H. Gohde asks: Are Wikipedians on Crack?

Mr. Gohde would like to know what is the big deal? John H. Gohde could set up a free blog that anyone can edit overnight. Heck, John could even call it a free encyclopedia. 🙂

Wikipedia

The free encyclopedia that anyone can edit.

John H. Gohde asks: Did IQ’s just drop 50 points? Isn’t that like saying: The Internet – A place where anyone can edit. Or, Usenet – Newsgroups that anyone can edit. Or how about? WordPress – Blogs that anyone can Edit? And, Why not: Websites – A place where anyone can edit. Or, how about: Sidewalks – Squares that anyone can edit? Just bring your own chalk.

Do not forget: Google Pages – Pages that anyone can edit. 🙂

Wikipedia is Trolling for Suckers

John H. Gohde thinks that Wikipedia claiming that it is an encyclopedia that anyone can edit. Is tantamount to saying that Wikipedia is Trolling for Suckers too stupid to think for themselves. Wikipedia is trolling for people too stupid and lazy to write their own website for free, in the opinion of John H. Gohde.

Wikipedia – An Encyclopedia that Seriously Restricts What Anyone Can Edit.

Today WordPress proudly reported: 2,747,256 blogs with 108,022 new posts.

John H. Gohde asks: Isn’t that a heck of a lot bigger than Wikipedia? And, Isn’t WordPress an opens source project? And, isn’t the Internet a heck of a lot bigger than Wikipedia? John could easily set up a free WordPress blog overnight, and make it a place that anyone can edit. So, Jimbo? What is the big deal?

John H. Gohde asks: Doesn’t Wikipeida ask it editors for contributions, all the time? Couldn’t John, likewise, ask editors on his Anyone Can Edit blog for financial contributions? So, Jimbo: What is the big deal?

John H. Gohde wants to know if Wikipedians are on Crack? Or, are they just too stupid, lazy, and/or unmotivated to tackle the Internet on their own?
