I do hope people continue to express concern
about the Wikipedia/Wikia
relationship. The existence of Wikia doesn't make a whole lot of sense,
except the $$$ kind.
Yes, as I pointed out, I am the first to have been concerned and I
will be again when there is reason to be. I firmly believe this
renting of offices isn't a reason.
Likewise, I was not thrilled that we ended up reopening this can of
worms, after the effort that had gone into removing all financial
connections to Wikia. But I'm persuaded that it is the right choice for
Wikimedia as a business decision, and our responsibility is to make such
choices, not avoid them in deference to those who will believe the worst.
