The wiki grew as a nonprofit offshoot of a softcore porn site called, "Bomis", which shut down around 2007. A notable section of Bomis was the, "Bomis Babe Report". The leader of Bomis and Wikipedia, Jimmy Wales, founded and molded Wikipedia while he was a staunch, right-wing Libertarian. Wikipedia benefited as being one of the first-movers in user generated wiki content, a privilege it enjoys to this day.
The website is a process of outside non-active users writing most of the content of 5 million articles, and about 1,200 people who almost all know each other, doing most of the non-bot edits, or editorializing and mistake-fixing. In other words, in the context of being delitionist, Wikipedia is the world’s third most influential non-state editorial board (oligarchic thought policer), not a democratic or “wisdom-of-the-massses” or “swarm intelligence” effort.
In the wake of Gamergate, the English Wikipedia Arbitration Committee imposed “standard discretionary sanctions, which are authorized for all edits about, and all pages related to, (a) GamerGate, (b) any gender-related dispute or controversy, (c) people associated with (a) or (b), all broadly construed.”
One of the biggest controversies since its inception is the disparity on Wikipedia in the number of male and female biographies. However Wikipedians, due to its bluepilled nature, haven’t realized why this is occuring. Its because a lot of these male editors who create this content have grown up in an environment that is filled with almost exclusively female adults; including a single mother, and perhaps female-only teachers all the way up to high school. A hankering young male cannot vicariously look at himself as a woman, and as such needs a male role model. But bluepillers will never tell you that.
