Wikipedia is not a place to post lengthy tracts denouncing Wikipedia  
and its administrators. Wikipedia is a project to build an  
encyclopedia. I'm sorry this didn't seem obvious to you when you  
started, but it's not exactly prudent to go around attacking the  
people you're supposed to work with.
