While I support the Wikipedia as a useful source of knowledge, along with the general principles of mass participation, it can at times be difficult. In the last few days I seem to have spent a disproportionate amount of time dealing with the deletion of obscenities on the Wales article, and preventing self-promotion in the Knowledge Management article. The latter is especially frustrating given the quality of the discussion and the lack of engagement of the wider community.

Sooner or later this will all get too hard and I will just give up, there are better uses of my time.
