Thanks, Wikimedia

Looks like German-Speaking Wikipedia users are finally 'thanking' Wikimedia for deleting and censoring all the german Wikipedia articles:


Instead of donating a usual amount of about 50€ or 20€, people are sending in only 1€ and writing why they are angry about wikipedia: the admins of wikipedia are increasingly deleting and censoring articles on the Wikipedia, but ignoring all criticism about this behavior. Finally a way wikimedia will listen, I think.

three comments, already:

when i look at the daily sum, i think this “excluders” will like this form of protest…

i think these are fake donations…

Actually, these donations go to the Wikimedia Foundation Germany. And ever since this arguement started, the Wikimedia Foundation has suddenly declared that they have no influence on how Wikipedia develops.

So yeah, they are yelling at (and giving money to) the wrong guys here.
