Secret Mailing list at Wikipedia sounds Like DMOZ.org Part 2

Posted by geeknews at 6:41 PM on December 4, 2007

I have written my issues I had with the DMOZ a couple of years ago over an experience I had over their with a heavy handed power crazy EditAll as they called them.

What I see being discussed today is similar to some of the political and power mongering I saw on the DMOZ. I have long said that any site that has top level editors with too much power is a disaster waiting to happen.

People get egos the size of Texas and when someone invades their sand box if those egos are not kept in check all hell will break loose. I refuse to this date to contribute anything to sites like Wikipedia because their are always people with egos that cannot leave well enough alone. [The Register]
