Maybe it's that I've always found my pleasure in Wikipedia from finding & sharing information. I enjoy reading, & am always hunting thru Amazon, Alibris & Abebooks for titles I don't have. I focus on the writing & not on dealing with the cranks, kooks, & promoters seeking to push their own beliefs, theories or products. I stay to my own corners of Wikipedia, & am left alone in my ivy-clad, digital tower to try to produce useful information. I notice that a number of long-term Wikipedians are doing much the same thing. And maybe after Wikipedia is no longer the K-rad k3wl website to be, those of us who are left can get back to the important duty of passing knowledge on to future generations -- as long as there is electricity, of course.
