Wikipedia editors do a huge amount of work for Wikipedia, and get

And curiously, the few (<5) editors who are most aggressively attacked for
on-Wiki actions are the ones who want the links removed. You have a conflict
of interest, Jay. Perhaps if administrators and editors focused on making
the articles better, rather than advancing their own ends and personal,
social, or religious ideals (not naming names) they wouldn't draw off-Wiki
"enemies" like flies.
I didn't notice this e-mail before; in response, I'll just note that
perhaps if posters to this list focused on honest and intelligent
dialogue, rather than advancing foaming-at-the-mouth "women who dress
in scanty clothes are just asking to be raped" arguments, (not naming
names), they'd have a better chance of not looking like rabid fools.
