I am not a newcomer to electronic communities, having been involved in them since the mid-1980s.

One of the electronic communities in which I was active from time to time was Usenet. Wikipedia is not Usenet. Civility, including the basic principles of netiquette that were first defined in the 1980s, should be the rule in any electronic community. In Usenet, there are islands of civility in a sea of incivility. No one owns Usenet. The answer to whether anyone owns Wikipedia is a paradox. No one owns Wikipedia, but Jimbo Wales and the Board of Directors own Wikipedia.

I had originally intended to contribute a few articles on subjects of which I have knowledge. However, it seems that much of my time is being spent in responding to disputes and problematical editors. We have problematical editors on Wikipedia because editors are human and humans are problematical.
