Wikimedia’s Transparency Report: Guys, We’re A Wiki, Don’t Demand We Take Stuff Down (Techdirt)

Techdirt: Wikimedia’s Transparency Report: Guys, We’re A Wiki, Don’t Demand We Take Stuff Down. “Wikimedia, like many other internet platform these days releases a transparency report that discusses various efforts to takedown content or identify users. We’re now all quite used to what such transparency reports look like. However, Wikimedia’s latest is worth reading as a reminder that Wikipedia is a different sort of beast. Not surprisingly, it gets a lot fewer demands, but it also abides by very few of those demands. My favorite is the fact that people demand Wikimedia edit or remove content. It’s a wiki. Anyone can edit it. But if your edits suck, you’re going to be in trouble. And yet, Wikimedia still receives hundreds of demands. And doesn’t comply with any of them. Including ones from governments. Instead, Wikimedia explains to them just how Wikipedia works.”
