This type of behavior is counter to the mission of Wikinews and the
parameters as to why the Wikimedia Foundation approved the project.
Basically: Wikinews is not in the business of publishing fiction.
But they do help to form a sense of wikimedian community which is good
for the wikimedia projects and helps further its goals.
Sorry, you may have noticed that I am arguing both sides of this
issue. I'm not trolling, I just see the arguments of both sides and
can't decide on a position. But then i'm like that on most issues.
ps. Jimbo's idea is awesome, though may be too hard for wikinews.
Still I think it would be soooo cool for wikipedia.
