"Seriously, anyone who puts protecting new editors and retaining terrible content above upholding ethical and legal commitments to integrity, accuracy, and protection of a person's reputation is quite simply a massive idiot." – Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales

"Greatest misconception about Wikipedia: We aren't democratic. Our readers edit the entries, but we’re actually quite snobby. The core community appreciates when someone is knowledgeable, and thinks some people are idiots and shouldn’t be writing." – Jimmy Wales; The New York Times, November 18, 2007

"In the real world people who kick over the office furniture and delete all their coworkers' data get fired. In Wikipedia we shower them with the attention they crave, sending an implicit 'up yours' to all the constructive users whose time they have wasted." – Wikipedia editor on the creation of the Troll Support Network. Copied from Dan Murphy's talk page

WikiDefender Barnstar.png The Defender of the Wiki Barnstar
For your untiring efforts to prevent insertion of YouTube and blog links to articles about popular culture I present you with this well-armored barnstar. Perhaps this helm of defense will insulate you somewhat from astounding, unexpected and arguable blocks better utilized against those who edit against policy, guideline and pillar. Know that even the purest knights get their armor dented from time to time. BusterD (talk) 01:40, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

I want to give you the Real Life Barnstar for your beautiful and kind comment on User talk:GabrielAmmirata. Thank you for having empathy and compassion for this soul, even if it is a simple message on Wikipedia. It is so nice that editors still remember that there is a person behind each account, in real life, editing Wikipedia for a variety of causes they care about. Thank you.
