Truth, not Silence[edit]

If one's goal is to help produce a truthful, accurate, and complete Wikipedia, not to fulfill one's own agenda, one quickly comes to realize that there are two kinds of people fixing allegedly inaccurate or PoV entries:

  • There are people who attempt to fix the error, generally by changing the wording so that it's more objective and accurate. "Senator X lied about Such and Such" should usually be changed (if the lie isn't pretty much proven) to "So-and-so asserted, based on this and that, that Senator X did not tell the truth about Such and Such".
  • And then there are people whose goal is to censor information that doesn't fit their own personal agenda. These people tend to delete supposedly flawed material wholesale, and often will insist continuing to delete any reference to it, no matter how much others attempt to fix the material to comply with their objections. There's no way, if such a person likes Senator X, that any even vaguely accurate mention of Such and Such will survive deletion.

We should all strive to be the former, not the latter, even...or especially...when the topic at hand is important to us and we do prefer one side over the other.


Acknowledged Articles[edit]

People keep saying I should track the articles I've created, or dominantly edited, that have gotten awards, features, et cetera. Unfortunately, I haven't kept track of them at all. Here are a few I know of...

Media Mention[edit]

In the article The Republican Primary, as Told by Wikipedia Edits, Kaz is in the list of top editors in the Ron Paul category, with additional mention of the article he created, List of companion plants and, for some reason, Jehovah's Witness, probably some coincidence of what he was editing at the time of the article.

Since it's a multimedia page, one cannot link directly to the view showing Kaz, so here's a screen shot:
