I find hard to understand the point of view of WMF employees who after
a year in employment, have yet to find an hour to make a minimal
number of edits on Wikipedia, just to see what it is like. I would
compare it to working as a web page designer for a supermarket chain,
and never trying to buy some food from one of the stores using your
staff discount.
