Wow. Nice ego there.

If someone I knew wrote some detailed Wiki entries about Telecom DCC control channel protocol throughputs and attacks, he could objectively state that there would be very few people in the world up to the task. He might also want to maintain anonymity.

Shutting down this source of wiki entries means that the general flow of Wikipedia content has been altered slightly, but I would argue significantly.

I see no material issue with an individual claiming that the absence of his posts to Wiki is significant, even if this is in fact untrue for his particular case. The ego is not material to the essential point.
