Robert Fernandez thinks it is "remarkably inappopriate" to put the phrase "*experts **are scum"* in quotation marks as if it were a quotation from the Signpost. No. This is a quotation, which perhaps he did not recognise, from a rather long-standing and well-known essay, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Anti-elitism which discusses this very issue and is a convenient and common way of summarising the attitude exhibited in the article.
Does Robert have any views on the topic of this thread? _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines and https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia-l New messages to: Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
