'My Way or the Highway' attitudes can seriously disrupt the collaborative process of an online website like Wikipedia. Here is why:

  • Wikipedia is the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit, and as a result, people who always want their way entirely defeat the purpose of Wikipedia.
  • This attitude can potentially scare away newcomers, who could have been very skilled and coveted.
  • As an Administrator, it is very frustrating to have to deal with these types of people, especially if they are too ignorant to listen to anybody.
  • In most cases, a defiant editor is either a fanboy of whatever article's subject he is 'defending', seeking out for 'revenge', or is verbally berating the subject of the article.

Please comply to Wikipedia rules[edit]

We cannot stress this enough!
