|This user is taking a wikibreak from more active editing than previously because of policy issues that need to be dealt with in various forums. Women, older editors, academics, professionals, etc. need to know if Wikipedia is a decent place for them to add their high quality content without being singled out for insult, harassment and other abuses.|
Consciousness raising group 1970s flashback page - you're invited! :)
"Librarians have proven techniques for dealing with any sort of information or any sort of person: clear instructions for gathering, packaging and delivering information; clear rules and enforcement regarding disruptive behavior; and a commitment to upholding the standards of the profession and their institutions.
By contrast, the rules on Wikipedia are not clear, the enforcement on disruptive behavior is arbitrary or non-existent. Online game players, vulgarians, and sea-lioning randos who congregate here can be as disruptive and outrageous as they wish, with impunity. They don't care, because they don't have to."
