Seriously. Shut up. It's enough to make me not only NOT donate, but to stop using the damn website all together.

And could you find any doucheier pictures of the guy?

GAH!

If the editing really was open for anyone, I would donate. Otherwise screw 'em. Your mission doesn't meet your actions, therefore you don't deserve my money.

Not to turn this into an actual thread of discussion or anything instead of simply hate for Jimmy Whales et al, but I agree with you. I have actually gone in and edited a typo here or there or reverted a vandalism, but I have read too many stories about the wiki trolls to bother ever trying to actually add or update any content.

Still, it is an impressive tool for finding useful, high-level, mostly accurate info at the drop of a hat.

To be fair, the wiki trolls, though pretentious, arrogant, and super irritating, exist to curb all of the many idiots out there who don't respect having the ability to edit such a tool. They don't appreciate it for what it is, and then make damaging edits, such as vandalism/pranks, un-cited and unsubstantiated claims, biased content, and other shenanigans.

Without the trolls, you'd have one heck of a mess on your hands. As it is, even with them, I find it miraculous that I can usually find accurate and up to date information when I want it.

I didn't realize it until I saw the red "X" on the BGG appeal, but there is an "X" to close the Jimmy Wales appeals. I'm not sure how long it lasts, but I'm not seeing them right now.

Before that it was even more annoying because I had actually given some money and yet the stupid thing kept popping up.
