Jimmy Wales is both ignorant and willing to deliberately manipulate stories
for unsuspecting journalists and followers who don't take the time or have
the courage to call him on his distortions.  After all, this is the man who
not only thinks he is the "sole founder" of Wikipedia (despite the idea of
wiki software and architecture being brought to him by Larry Sanger, and
despite the fact that Sanger named it "Wikipedia", and despite the fact that
Sanger first invited the wider world to come edit Wikipedia), he
purposefully tried to privately launch a multi-editor campaign to assist him
in changing to "sole founder" all references to him being a "co-founder" of
Wikipedia.  The man is shameless.  My only regret is that tens of thousands
of independent observers (such as yourself, Maja) are only now cottoning on
to this fact.

Welcome to the real world and the truth about Jimmy Wales.
