The sad tales of the Wikipedia gang war regarding WUWT – ‘creepy and a little scary’?

I tried talking a bit; see an archive.

One of my comments made it through:

And so did another; and a third. But after that, things dried up, with the appallingly dangerous:

  wuwt-unpublished left which went unpublished so far, as well as at least one other. Well, glasnost was only going to last so long.

[Update: now published, it looks like. So they're just slow.]

I'm not in 'it' to win 'it' but most people appear to be of that, err disposition.  When people lose faith in an economic system (of governance) you get zombies.

Are we all just flying dinosaurs collecting shiny things, and if so, to what end.  Presumably to collect even more shiny things.
