+Violet Blue reports on this growing scandal. I, for one, am not the least bit surprised--except by how clumsy they were.

as a species, we are our own worst enemy.

Set up something supposed to be nice and then begin the process of bringing down around our ears.
 
This is abhorrent. Wikipedia's very survival depends on trust. If something casts doubt on that trust, Wikipedia either dies, or worse--it retains the reputation of Conservapedia.
 
Thank you for the props. I also can't believe how arrogant the parties have been about their actions and behavior, both during and even moreso now in the aftermath. 

This whole ball of yarn took a serious bit of work to unravel, and it's heavy. Sadly, I don't think this is anywhere near over. I have to wonder if it was easier to see from my perspective of seeing startup/white collar hustlers scam PR and PV's like this in the Valley every chance they get - making me wonder further if those in the organizations are blindsided by it, or if there really is a wider culture of collusion.
 
+Steven Vaughan-Nichols When I now consider your comment in light of what I did not include in the article I have to agree 100%. And it is heartbreaking.
 
+Violet Blue Ack. Well, good luck with the reporting. If there's anything I can do to help with that, you know where to find me. Unfortunately I don't have any Wikipedia sources.
