Hi, my name is Jarhed. I have been contributing to Wikipedia anonymously since it first came up on the 'Net. I develop business software, and I was one of the first programmers at Perot Systems to write an Internet application. I made and lost a fortune during the dot-com bubble, but it was all on paper.

Some time ago, I created an account under my real name in order to contribute an original article. Unfortunately for me, I did this contemporaneously with the Seigenthaler incident, and you will forgive me if it scared the itshay out of me. Some of you Wiki-whateveryouares are psychotic. I could just see you, standing on my doorstep with a chainsaw, demanding that I come out and debate your freedom of speech issue. I hope you will forgive me if I take a soupçon of effort to protect myself.

The editor base seems to be in the beginning stages of fixing some of the fatal problems unearthed by Seigenthaler and subsequent events. Here is a good essay about the subject on background: Wikipedia:BLP problem.

Note: I might or might not be paid as a consultant to make edits for other people or entities. In all cases, I expect all editors, including myself, to conform to Wikipedia guidelines for editors. These rules and guidelines have been in place for quite some time, and I expect these rules and guidelines to be sufficient to guide my edits and those of any other editor, without regard to his or her reasons for editing.
