I am so sick of this ridiculous "Militia" discussion that it makes my skin crawl
to even be writing about it, but on some of the pages I've noticed a quote of mine
being used wildly out of context, so I feel forced to clarify it.
I coined the phrase "central authority structure" to collectively refer to the
"core" groups of 'pedians. ("Core" and "central" are
synonymous). I used the phrase in passing to emphasise that there is an organic and
completely dynamic core group of people who contribute to the 'pedia on a regular
basis, and that this core group is non-exclusive and admits any who wants to join and is
willing to put in the time.
Unfortunately, somehow my comment has been twisted to sound as if I think that there is a
"dictatorial, militaristic power system" which is complete and utter bullshit. I
don't, never have, never will. The Militia is a good idea, borne of experience and it
appears most of us support it without any controversy.
I am posting to Wikipedia-L simply to erase a distortion of my comments.
I beg you, please do not bother to reply - we don't need to prolong this asinine and
pointless debate any further. Let's just build the 'pedia.
