My issues with the Wiki Education Foundation
Wiki Education Foundation course: building ties to academia
"I believe that when editing divisive articles, one should remember that Wikipedia is, ultimately, a website; it is not worth becoming so emotionally invested over that it spoils enjoyment of other areas of life."
SuperMarioMan in his RfA.
"Whatever Wikipedia as a community is doing, it is more of a vehicle for contributors' self-indulgence than it is a concerted endeavour to bring free knowledge to the world."
Andreas Kolbe in an article for Wikipediocracy
"Also people should bear this in mind should Troutman ever come up at RFA. He'd clearly be of the Sandstein school of inflexible robots. He should never be given any position of authority over anyone else."

"Not everyone is destined for adminship, and that especially includes "I'm gonna clean up Wikipedia, dammit" thinkers. You'll note I'm not an admin and haven't asked to be one in many years. I am also that sort of editor, and recognize this viewpoint is a conflict of interest with that we need and expect from an admin. People on a mission – one that's worthwhile – are generally of better use at Wikipedia unfettered by the restraints of adminship, anyway (and happier). It just sometimes takes them a while to realize it."
SMcCandlish in a failed RfA for Robert McClenon.
