swisscelt: Now what?

So now that EssJay has [apparently] left Wikipedia, and a cadre of administrators, stewards, and the like are doing their level best to sweep the whole incident under the rug, what's left to do? We're being told to discuss this on the Village Pump, but I see nothing there. On the Community Noticeboard, an ad hoc (and highly disorganized, IMO) discussion is brewing, but already people are calling for its closure.

I've said it before: This is serious. We can't just pretend that because this is happening on Teh Intrawebz it won't be taken seriously in the American media and, ultimately, American and other national societies. How Wikipedia deals with this is as crucial to the continuing survival of this enterprise as any corporate scandal was to their respective companies. It's time we ALL grew up: This is the real world, people.

Gee funny you say grow up

Yes we can let it die.. It happened Shit happens... To drag it out is to prolong a bad chapter. Learn from it and let it go.

Lord if you aren't stirring shit up here its somewhere... Dude heed your own advise and grow up

Thanks for the ad hominem. Now, realizing that it takes two to tango, I expect you'll either drop this and be gone, or stand convicted of stirring the shit yourself.

Besides which, I haven't the foggiest idea who you are, troll.
