IT Skeptic bumped off Wikipedia
Does the use of Google Ads on this page reduce its credibility? [as if it had any] Is this blog pure opinion? And if so does opinion have any place on Wikipedia? Comments please.
These are questions provoked by recent events. I am most interested in your opinions.
A while ago the IT SKeptic blog was put on Wikipedia as an external link to the entry on ITIL. There is a vigilante who goes about the Wikipedia removing any site that uses Google Adsense, so the link was removed. You can read about the ensuing discussion here (see "criticism").
Now the IT Skeptic has no pretensions to academic rigour. But then the whole ITIL domain lacks any academic rigour (another future topic). Nor am I an expert on anything much. But obviously some people think I have a point, and perhaps that point should be part of any balanced description of ITIL.
I'm not sure that opinion should be on Wikipedia, but if not then an awful lot of the current content of Wikipedia is called into question.
Remarkably, I have no strong views either way on the whole affair (other than being extremely annoyed by a pompous anonymous pedant). What do you think about the whole thing?
