I think the problem is that there is a lose affiliation. Wikipedia is responsible for what its employees, paid or unpaid do. The administrators are not just members of the general public, wikimedia gives them special privileges. The administrator in this case seems to have had an affiliation with the school, and was doing things at wikipeida to lie for/about the school.

No, it is not false. Not even a little bit. When someone says Karl Benz created the car is that salse because he did not invent the nissan sentra? It would be false to say the government invented the world wide web, or ecommerce, but not that they created the internet, that is a fact.

I only respect laws designed to represent the interests of the citizenry as a whole--not the vested interests of one tiny class who bribed some politicians with campaign contributions.

You're right. It's not in the best interest of citizenry as a whole to have properly licensed and insured livery drivers. We're much better off when anyone with a smart phone and a car can provide taxi services.

Well they are insured and they do have a license, so I am not sure your point.

A public university does not have to support all forms of speech. When you go to that school you typically sign a document stating you will limit your behavious to a set appropriate of being in that institution, a code of conduct, and that is legally enforceable. You could say that like the military you sign away some of your rights when you go the school for the duration of time you are in the school.
