The user gave the following additional comment:Owing to the views of a certain political figure who described Wikipedia as "“to the detriment of the entire European cultural sector”. (quoted here -https://juliareda.eu/2015/06/who-is-behind-the-attack-on-freedom-of-panorama/ )
Considering the rows I've had on this and my alternate account over copyright issues (see the number of talk page archives), I take issue with nearly being compared with thieves or pirates because I contribute and support a project that has greatly enhanced people access to information, especially when Wikipedia has very very stringent processes and controls to ensure content on it is actually properly licensed.
I know Wikipedia (and by extension other projects) is not "detrimental", but I have reservations about continued contributions if prominent political figures are set on seemingly attacking the project because it stands up for certain values against vested interests. I thought this was supposed to be a content project, not a political movement.
