I agree with the observation. As the popularity of
Wiki continues to go up, the vandals will keep
increasing in numbers, which in turn will force an
increase in admin numbers. This, to me, sounds bad,
because the admin cult will also grow in size. We can
expect more blocking and more power tripping. I mean,
when admins enjoy using their tools more than working
on articles, something must be wrong.

The Sunday Times (the most popular British Sunday

pointing out that it is riddled by vandalism. After
lampooning the fact that we have 1000 volunteers
just to keep the vandalism at bay, it quotes Jimmy
"I thought it would be overrun with idiots but
there are far more people doing good than those who
try to be harmful."
Mind you, when WP has more people keeping the
idiots at bay rather than writing content (as most
likely is the case now), something has gone wrong.
