What is a Wiki War? Essentially a wiki war is an ‘edit war’ that occurs on Wikipedia. It happens when editors disagree on article content. The ‘war’ is when many points of view engage in three dimensional chess strategies with each other using Wikipedia policies or admin support to block editing permissions to those with opposing viewpoints, or how veteran Wikipedia contributor David Gerard puts it – “battles to the death for insanely low stakes”. It can be a seriously nasty business, and I’m skeptical that the stakes are so small. The general public is not aware what serious business it can be, because these activities are ‘buried out in the open’ in WikiMedia’s software system. WikiMedia doesn’t discuss them much, nor how dark and sordid they can become. A wiki war is far more nefarious than just a bunch of nerds arguing over sources. I believe this is just a natural signature of an ideological struggle in society. Who ever controls the narrative – influences potentially the entire world through media.

Among those detained was Dieudonne, a controversial, popular comic with repeated convictions for racism and anti-Semitism. Like many European countries, France has strong laws against hate speech and especially anti-Semitism in the wake of the Holocaust. “There should be no more ‘Yes, but,” he insisted.
