Wikipedia follies

As a scholar of the Acts of Paul I have tried to promote Acta Pauli, a website that Dr. Jeremy Barrier and I started, by adding a link in relevant Wikipedia articles.  After some effort, a couple of these links have persisted but others were eliminated by spam detectors and an editor.  On the French and German sites, the links were removed by Anonymous Dissident, who I learned is twelve approximately 14 years old.

I have decided therefore never to provide links to Wikipedia because not only is it a tendentious source promoting views that I disagree with, but as a scholar, I protest the editorial process which is supposed to be open to anyone but is in fact hostile to scholarly sources of information, whether they intend it to be or not.  Hence, you will see me remove all links to Wikipedia from Palabre in the future.
