I have found Wikipedia to be a very useful tool and as a result was lead to help make it even better. I had been actively involved with SpamCop serving as one of the two admins of the SpamCop Wiki[1] and also as one of the five moderators of the SpamCop Fourms[2]

My current schedule no longer permits be to be active in Wikipedia, but I still believe in the value of Wikipedia and make use of it as a initial reference source.
