Agent 86 shares this with us, "Hobie should be outraged, wikipedia disinfo purveyor copies his donate for dinars scam"

Many believe the Wikipedia is a disinformation site, though I find it useful and generally accurate.  Hundreds of people author articles following strict standards which are enforced. 

So there is no similarity between the Wikipedia and RMN what so ever. 

They are only asking for $3 each.
They have no ads.
There is a process for correction of information.
There is a strong degree of transparency. 

So, there is Wikipedia and there is RMN.  Very, very different.

I did not make up the headline for this post. It is from a piece in a section of tomorrow's Washington Post which I receive on Saturday. You may have seen the above or similar ad at Wikipedia recently. This article explains why a current Wikipedia consultant considers it "an embarrassment to Wikipedia":
[I'm not sure why the piece is dated Wednesday. Maybe it also appeared then, or online first.]

  1. Well, I suppose we will have to agree to disagree, they do heavy censoring.

    1. Do you mean Wiki censors? Please expand on your experiences, transparency is a good thing.
