Since Jimbo has explicitly objected to calling Larry a "co-founder of 
Wikipedia" several times, including in replies to one of Larry's 
Kuro5hin articles, I'm not sure how it's just "one troll".  According to 
Jimbo, Larry neither co-founded Wikipedia nor proposed the idea of a 
wiki-based encyclopedia, but was merely an employee tasked with starting 
it up.
