That is because I stay who I am and refuse to become a rose speckled 
glasses person who talks very politically correct. It is the problem of 
other people. Not mine. If people want me to someone I am not they can 
wait untill the sun goes supernova.

My good ideas nor my prolific writing haven't changed. What has changed 
is that I have become even more of a minority then I was. Imho wikimedia 
is drowning in people wo are PC and without experience outside of the 
western world. Which means that either nothing gets done, or decisions 
are made like on en:wikipedia were they discriminate now.
