An online encyclopaedia written entirely by members of the public. Now a new site is to be launched that will be 'less likely to be riddled with errors'.
Founder, Larry Sanger, says that vast swaths of the anarchic encyclopaedia he helped create in 2001 are in desperate need of an editor.
A bitter public feud exists between Larry Sanger and Jimmy Wales, creators of Wikipedia in 2001. Wikipedia is still reeling from the revelation of embarrassing errors and the activities of malicious hackers.
Sanger has begun signing up academics furious at the mistakes and generalisations they find on Wikipedia's articles on their specialist subjects.
Detractors say that entries on complex topics are full of errors, interested parties will manipulate articles on contentious political topics, and the whole shebang is prone to vandalism by pranksters.
US journalist John Seigenthaler complained that his Wikipedia entry implicated him in the assassination of President John Kennedy. A member of the public, Brian Chase, had inserted the claim "as a joke" to fool a colleague.
A Wikipedia investigation earlier this year found that Congressmen and their aides were doctoring their entries to flatter their records and to erase embarrassingly unfulfilled promises.
Public figures often have their profiles vandalised. Tony Blair was briefly given the job title "Bush's bitch boy" before the offending posting was reversed by Wikipedia's administrators and the organisation was forced to compromise its free-for-all principles.
Even the entry for Wikipedia itself has had to be closed off to public editors, and Sanger's contains the disclaimer: "The neutrality of this article is disputed."
Sanger and Wales have been involved in a dispute over who should be credited with founding the Wikipedia community. Wales, whose first online venture was an internet porn site, now highlights how Sanger was in fact a hired help, employed to work on a professional online encyclopaedia called Nupedia.
Sanger says Wikipedia itself is "dysfunctional" and he has heard from many academics who have gone out of their way to try to edit entries, "only essentially to be beaten back by the community".
The idea behind Wikipedia is that, by giving a billion internet users across the globe the chance to add, correct and improve articles, the project will approximate to the sum total of human knowledge. "wiki" is Hawaiian for quick.
All ChowQ fools who attempt to learn about Islam and the Prophets from this website must know a few things:
1) Yes, the Wiki-man started out with a porn site; his mind is full of filth. I would not trust satan telling me about God!
2) If the Qur'an were to be brought to this site, fools would rush in to add to it or delete parts as if they were learned sages! You can't do this to the Divine Word of God!
3) The site is full of errors and hence whatever my Indus-ian friends quote about Islam and Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) at ChowQ is inaccurate!
4) Jimmy Wales is presently in charge. Sanger left in 2002, and is a professor/lecturer at Ohio State. Names like Jeremy Rosenfeld, Benjamin Kovitz, Seth Cohen, dot the landscape of technical staff. Moderators openly admit to a pro-Jewish bias. Hmmm...
5) James Wales' history: He was born in Huntsville, Alabama, went to the exclusive Randolph prep school, and onto the University of Alabama. Wales graduates, and becomes a Futures Trader in Chicago. Next he opens Bomis, an 'Adult Content' website, which is followed by Nupedia, which morphs into Wikipedia. Wales is the darling of the Jewish crowd at Harvard, being a fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, at the Harvard Law School.
6) Bomis.Com? Basically 'Bomis' is an adult site, started by Wales, but Wikipedia calls it erotica. More hmmm...
7) Wikipedia system of control: Wikipedians (Jewish volunteers) will concentrate on a certain subject, and actively moderate any new replies. Once an individual edits an article, his ISP number is recorded, and he is assigned a sayanim that will monitor all his future writings. Individual contributors are assigned a tracking page, and an open record of all writings. Throughout the contribution cycle, this will be monitored by Hillel, ADL, SPLC, type control agents.
8) Examples of censorship: In 1967, with Lyndon Johnson's blessing, Israel attacked Egypt in a surprise assault. In an attempt to create a 'False Flag' pointing at Egypt, the Zionists attacked the USS Liberty, killing 44 and wounding 177. The attack failed when three attacking torpedo boats were on their final run, they collided, and their shots missed the ship. The Liberty got an SOS off to the USS Saratoga, and Israel was forced to abort the attack.
Wikipedia's Stance: Their interpretation is the attack was an innocent mistake, the torpedo boats were actually rescue vehicles, which the USS fired on, and innocent Israelis had to defend themselves.
9) Dr. Fredrick Toben: Dr. Toben is German historian and scholar, that grew up in Australia, and runs the Adelaide Institue. He is noted for his investigation of the 'Jewish Holocaust'. Wikipedia contributors wrote a slanderous page on him, and when he went to refute it, the sayanims deleted all his comments.
Wikipedia's Stance: Toben is a monster, who associates with criminals, and himself was a convict
10) Theresienstadt: In 1941, Germany gave Jewish artists their own experimental town as prototype refuge, to protect Jews. Subsequently the Jews have altered history, and refer to it as a death camp. When a 1943 documentary film was edited into Wikipedia's Theresienstadt page, the Hillel Wikipedians immediately deleted, saying it was propaganda and holocaust denial
Wikipedia's Stance: Theresienstadt was Nazi hellhole, where Jews were starved to death, and then sent on to Auschwitz.
11) Where does Wikipedia get it's funds?
According to it's founder, James Wales, it lives on grants and small individual contributions. (gimme a break guys!!)
That's it folks.
Pak national anthem and the fluttering flag.....
