  6. Hello,
  7.  
  8. You are on a fundraising drive again. Fine. But I cannot in good faith
  9. donate at the moment with the current state of affairs - re: the blind
  10. eye that is being turned to political ideologues tampering with certain
  11. pages with complete impunity. Two prime examples are -
  12.  
  13. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cultural_Marxism
  14.  
  15. Continuously being vandalised to make it appear as a Christian right
  16. conspiracy theory, and -
  17.  
  18. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamergate_controversy
  19.  
  20. Specifically about journalistic corruption in gaming - continuously being
  21. vandalised to parrot the point of view of those very same corrupt
  22. journalists.
  23.  
  24. If Wikipedia cannot control even two articles from subversion by noisy
  25. minorities pushing their private and highly politicised agendas, then
  26. Wikipedia no longer has credibility. Without credibility, it has no
  27. value. I cannot and will not donate under these circumstances.
