    Thanks for your efforts. I mostly enjoyed the summaries on the various wikipedia debates and the conception of Citizendium.

    You’re welcome. That’s the second nice comment I’ve received on the Wikipedia essay. I’m glad I didn’t give up on it part way through…

    It’s going to be interesting to watch Citizendium. Since I’m not an expert in anything, I don’t plan to volunteer…
