I think one of the strengths of wikipedia is that contributions are
taken at face value for what they are, rather than based on who
submits them. The sourcing should speak for itself!
... Wikipedia doesn't mandate
its editors to be truthful
From what I understand no editor is expected to reveal
themselves - or their editing past - than they feel comfortable with.
Don't ask and don't tell is my view. However, I'm sure I would agree
that lying is ok on wikipedia - please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Honesty
for an essay on the subject.
