And now I see your concern. You're right. That anyone can edit and that
Wikipedia has been based on volunteer efforts from the outset has been
among my major talking points, of course. I made that clear in today's
follow-up media inquiries. And no, I never refer to the WMF as curating
content. On a side note, though: I do point out to people that the
Foundation is hosting the Wikimedia projects, especially when I feel that
inquiries take a turn towards legal questions. I don't interfere there and
from my experience most people refrain from taking their stuff the WMF
legal team. If they don't, they're serious, and then the legal team people
are the right folks to deal with it. If they do, they weren't serious in
the first place.
Best
Michael
