Craig,

That was what I was thinking. After the election, when there is little reason to have a article in that shape, would be a good time to extensively review it.

Fred, thanks!

Worth reviewing, after people have recovered from the election. How
about...reminding me two weeks from today. I might've recovered by then,
seriously...

Thanks!

Craig,

I don't expect you to do anything about it, but Hillary Clinton
presidential campaign, 2016 has been so much an object of political editing by Clinton supporters that it looks more like an ad for Hillary than a
Wikipedia article.

It helps that folks on US Capitol Hill are receptive to quiet suggestions
that Wikipedia avoid becoming a partisan battleground.

Hoi,

Pine, thanks for sharing this article. I found the entire article very
interesting. I am glad that Wikipedia is not seen as a vehicle for
political campaign. Sometimes, people create account on Wikipedia with
the
aim to use the encyclopedia for political campaign and a good number of them end up getting blocked either for POV pushing or other disruptive
editing/behavior.

BTW....I have a few question. Is it a good idea to protect a page from
creation if there are indications that the overall intention of the
creator
is to use Wikipedia as a platform for political campaign? If yes, how is
such protection necessary if the page is neutrally written?

There was an incident that happened sometimes last year when an article
on
"Akinwunmi Ambode" was protected from creation and unprotected after his
election.

Is this really a good idea?

Best,

Isaac

        political neutrality

Hello colleagues,

Some of you might be interested in this news article:

can-wikipedia-save-the-internet-a7380786.html

When we know that we have countless shortcomings in Wikimedia, I found it refreshing to hear that some aspects of our content and community are
performing well and, on the whole, are serving the public interest.

Regards,

Pine
