The English Wikipedia is the world's third largest online encyclopedia as far as article count after the chinese Baidu Baiki (baike.baidu.com) and Baiki.com and a top-ten website in the West. The website is a process of outside non-active users writing most of the content of 5 million articles, and about 1,200 people who almost all know each other, doing most of the non-bot edits, or editorializing and mistake-fixing. In other words, in the context of being delitionist, Wikipedia is the world's third most influential non-state editorial board (oligarchic thought policer), not a democratic or "wisdom-of-the-massses" or "swarm intelligence" effort.
Controversies[edit | edit source]
In the wake of Gamergate, the English Wikipedia Arbitration Committee imposed "standard discretionary sanctions, which are authorized for all edits about, and all pages related to, (a) GamerGate, (b) any gender-related dispute or controversy, (c) people associated with (a) or (b), all broadly construed."
Biographies[edit | edit source]
One of the biggest controversies since its inception is the disparity on Wikipedia in the number of male and female biographies. However Wikipedians, due to its bluepilled nature, haven't realized why this is occuring. Its because a lot of these male editors who create this content have grown up in an environment that is filled with almost exclusively female adults; including a single mother, and perhaps female-only teachers all the way up to high school. A hankering young male cannot vicariously look at himself as a woman, and as such needs a male role model. But bluepillers will never tell you that.
Non-English Wikipedias[edit | edit source]
In addition to the English Wikipedia, German Wikipedia, French Wikipedia, etc. there also exist wikis such as the Esperanto Wikipedia, Interlingua Wikipedia, Simple English Wikipedia, etc., whose purpose as far as incels and other dissidents are concerned is mainly so they can get politically incorrect work published that would get deleted from the English Wikipedia. The effort required to learn how to edit these Wikipedias effectively is enough to deter the dominant English Wikipedians from following dissidents there, which serves to create a mostly safe haven for the exiled to operate unmolested.
Meanwhile, it is possible for the reader to find these articles via a search engine and use, e.g., Google Translate to read the text. The main downside is that without the English Wikipedia's vast collection of articles, it is not as possible to take advantage of wikilinks to boost SEO.
