Despite all attempts at privatization, it turns out that there are some things that don't want to be owned.
Music, water, seeds, electricity, ideas--they keep bursting out of the confines erected around them.
They have a natural resistance to enclosure, a tendency to escape, to cross-pollinate,
to flow through , fences flee out open and . windows
Naomi Klein, Fences and Windows
Some thoughts [ edit ]
"Wikipedia guidelines are like scripture: somewhere in the labyrinthine network of rules, you can find support for any position."
S Marshall 
Inclusionism and Deletionism: "A plague o' both your houses! They have made worms' meat of me." Mercutio "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines."
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance "
The best is the enemy of the good." Voltaire, La Bégueule (1772). "We are blessed to be living in an age when we have a global communications network in which idiots, assholes, and total and complete wastes of fucking human life alike can come together to give instant feedback in an unfettered and unmonitored online environment."
. The Onion
Adler's Laws of Wikipedia "I say we take off and
nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure." Ripley. "
Our social policies are not a suicide pact." Jimmy Wales, March 2005. "I find your lack of
[good] faith disturbing.".  The Wordsmith. "'Notability purges' are being executed throughout Wikipedia by empire-building, wannabe tin-pot dictators masquerading as humble editors."
 "[There are] significant differences between Wikipedia members and non-Wikipedia members in agreeableness, openness, and conscientiousness, which were lower for the Wikipedia members."
 "A small fraction of editors —
Wikipedians— do most of the work and produce most of the value."  "I don't think banishing users when their block log reaches a magic number teaches anybody anything except that it pays to keep cycling identities if you ever do get a block."
MickMacNee  "[T]he consensus of the [Wikipedia] community is that WP should be a storage place for all published information in case there is a nuclear war, gigantic solar flare, or alien invasion and all the rest of the Internet and all libraries are destroyed leaving WP alone to preserve human civilisation."
Steve Dufour  "Many Wikipedia contributors are out of their element. The foundation of the project is academic publishing, but very few people who are actively involved (or addicted, if you will) have the qualifications to be part of such an environment."
A Horse With No Name, Wikipedia Review. "Let's make a wiki. No, this is not an indecent proposal. It's an idea to add a little feature to Nupedia. Jimmy Wales thinks that many people might find the idea objectionable, but I think not. "Wiki," pronounced \wee'-kee\, derives from a Polynesian word, "wikiwiki," but what it means is a VERY open, VERY publicly-editable series of web pages."
email@example.com Wed, 10 Jan 2001 12:50:32 "Wikipedia is up! Humor me. Go there and add a little article. It will take all of five or ten minutes. --Larry"
firstname.lastname@example.org Wed, 17 Jan 2001 15:16:25 "None of this is to say that the Nupedia wiki will
replace the main encyclopedia; of course it won't. But will be an interesting ancillary endeavor!" -- LarrySanger, 17 Jan 2001 "As Wikipedia has grown, it has become increasingly clear that it functions as a necessary layer in the Internet knowledge system, a layer that was not needed in the analog age."
Casper Grathwohol, OUP, Jan 2011 "Others ... thought the first thing to do was eliminate all worthless books. They would ... leaf disgustedly through a volume, and condemn entire walls of books. It is to their hygenic, asetic rage that we lay the senseless loss of millions of volumes." Borges on the "Purifiers" in
, 1941. The Library of Babel "So why are you so soft now Fences? Why are you so soft now. You used to be stronger." An anonymous admirer.
My editing [ edit ]
User rights modified
Here's a summary of my Wikipedia editing, and here's my top 10 edited articles. I passed 40,000 edits in June 2015, 20,000 article edits in February 2015, and 30,000 edits and 15,000 article edits sometime in August 2010. My RfA passed on 23 November 2009 and thankfully was not too much like this RfA.
I've uploaded 300+ images to Wikimedia Commons and added even more to Wikipedia, mainly courtesy of Flickr, Geograph and FIST. I have a declared alternate account, User:Fences&Windows Alternateaccount. This is used for an alternate watchlist and may be used for editing from public computers to avoid compromising this main account.

Smoke is an invisible dragon, [dubious - discuss] who will only communicate with Tracey Simmons, aged 3, and often acts to cause Simmons to get into trouble with her parents.  Adults generally [who?] refuse to believe that Smoke exists, citing the non-existence of invisible dragons, although Tracey's friends at  nursery say they have heard Smoke. Scientists as yet are unable to explain the phenomenon.
