I have no conflict of interest (unless having an account in Wikia
counts) and I agree with everything Tim said.  Complaints about Wikia
content are irrelevant to Foundation-l, unless the point is something
like that Wikimedia should distance itself from Wikia more because one
of their wikis is used by a bunch of nutjobs who furthermore take an
attitude toward copyright less like Wikipedia and more like every
other website in existence.  If *that* was the point, it's a pretty
poor one still, and even more poorly expressed.
