Or, maybe Wikiversity is being used because this is precisely the type
of community-based research and collaboration work that they
specialize in. Wikiversity isn't censored for the benefit of
Wikipedia, and their users aren't bound by the content or discussion
policies at Wikipedia or Meta. I suggest that people who aren't
familiar with Wikiversity should take this as an opportunity to head
over there and see what that project is all about. Because, until you
understand Wikiversity, you can't possibly understand projects like
this one.
