You probably don't care who Wikipedia's chair emeritus Jimbo Wales went to bed with, or what his official relationship to the site is now. What matters is that he's Mr. Wikipedia to thousands of volunteers who contribute to mankind's definitive collection of Foghat trivia. The past week's leaked chats and emails document three acts that aren't crimes, but certainly aren't Wales leading by example. Here's the cocktail-party list to remember.
- 1. Wales cheated his own Wikipedia rules for a friend.
- 2. Wales spent lavishly while volunteers worked for free.
- 3. Wales had his boss lie to cover his tracks.
