I find it appropriately discriminatory. As a project, the Wikimedia
Foundation has to apply some judgement about where to devote its physical
resources and the time and effort of its volunteers. If we waste the time
and energy of those volunteers for unimportant tasks, they won't come back.
You very well may disagree about what choices the Foundation makes. I'm
just saying that it's a really big Internet, and that if you want to create
a wiki that no one else wants, you can do that. You don't have to have the
Wikimedia Foundation's machines and volunteers to do it.
I'm sure this discussion wasted a lot more machine resources and volunteers' time
than establishing those few Wikipedias.
