The everyday blog of Richard Bartle.

I'm a big fan of the Wikipedia — I refer to it quite often (although my personal contribution is somewhat limited). I have to say, though, that some of its entries are a little, er, irrelevant. This one, for example, is of no interest except to the people who subscribe to the discussion forums for a comic (and speaking as such a person, it's not a lot of interest to us, either).
Why use your own bandwidth and storage space when you can ride on someone else's and pass off your inane anecdotes as authoritative statements? I could put the whole of the MUDspeke Dictionary in this format if I wanted, perhaps lousing up more general references that used the same words in the process.
