Welcome to 2018. Here is your inspirational quote for the new year, courtesy of Kumioko.
People don’t want to work with assholes or in a negative work environment.
They don’t want to work with incompetent morons like a lot of the people at the WMF are or the ones who are in charge of Wiki-administration.
People don’t want to be insulted, denigrated and told they can’t be trusted by children with no real life experience and who are largely uneducated.
Wikipedia has a unique culture of putting children in charge of adults, telling qualified people who are educated, have actual certifications, and are experts in professions in real life that they don’t know as much about a topic as some high school dropout living in their mom’s basement.
