Doc Searles, Weblog, Aug 07, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Doc Searles's Wikipedia entry survives the threat of deletion and goes back to being merely a stub. My own Wikipedia entry survived a similar challenge, and now even has a table of contents. But the whole debate raises the question of Wikipedia's new unnamed army of enforcers - the people who don't add content, but who threaten articles with deletion, who demand citations from the print media, who complain that articles are not clear. I don't welcome this turn of events in Wikipedia, and fear that succumbing to the site's critics will ruin it.
