Wikipedia attacks Wikileaks

Written by Nick Farell


Wacki wiki wars
Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales has whistleblower WikiLeaks in its sights over its release of Afghan war documents which he said could "get people killed".

Wales, whose organisation has managed to make few people who he did not like disappear from history, such as Mike Magee and the Everywhere Girl, along with turning this writer into a Canadian boxer, hates the fact that the outfit uses Wiki" in its name. He said that they were not a real Wiki and they got famous in the first place was by using the word Wiki.

If they were a real Wiki you would have a team of people pretending to be experts hacking about the documents, he didn't say. Wales said that documents, which experts say constitute one of the biggest-ever leaks of military intelligence, must be handled responsibly. Then comes the kicker quote: "I think it is really important when we have sensitive information, that we do rely on responsible journalists to sort through it for us... it's much better than dumping all kinds of crazy information online and get people killed.”

Whereas Wales thinks its ok to have documents edited by “fake penis experts” and people who pretend to have a doctorate. It looks like there will be a wacki wiki war brewing fairly soon.

Oh look. Another sentence on Fudzilla that makes absolutely no sense.

This entire article is almost unreadable it's so bad. I can't believe you people are making a living off this.

I thought I'd found a replacement for Tomshardware, but I guess I'll just have to keep looking. Can anyone else recommend a real tech news site? Thanks

Seriously, when did hardware and software reviews become "somebody said something about somebody" paparazzi stuff?

You guys need to focus on the technology, not the ones create/use it.

Nick, Nick, Nick...

Seriously, this is about the worst Fudzilla article I have read. Please focus on the tech news and stop adding such baseless personal opinion, or you will lose a once-loyal reader.

@ FoxMontage
Yeah, anybody got any recommendations ? I'm a long time reader of Fudzilla, but I'm probably looking for a new home now... a website that posts regularly about advances in technology, without constantly writing about shitty consumer electronics (gizmodo), blatantly sucking corporate dick (tomshardware), doing no research behind their stories (arstechnica), or having terrible quality standards (fudzilla).

I side against "****leaks" they dont deserve the wiki name. the freaks at the top simply want attention, they could care less about helping society - so get rid of the wiki part of the name and i'll leave them to the military to handle.. since its clear they are not only wasting time, they are killing people in the process. "***leaks" is an answer to a question that nobody asked. they should run and hide from the drones that are flying over their offices next to the spam servers.

Nick,
This article speaks less about the relationship between Wales and Wikileaks than about Wales and yourself.

Was this intentional?

Quoting FoxMontage:

Well I like Fudzilla but you're right sometimes its full of fud :D
I would recommend Ars Technica , so far they look like the unbiased and knowledgeable tech site :)
