Comments: Wikipedia (recent) legal intern wonders why they don't "send [lawyer] after" me

Interesting that Mike Godwin would be Jimbo Wales' lawyer. They're both members of The WELL, the original on-line cult formed by members of Stephen Gaskin's Summerville cult in Tennessee, among others.

Seth, I have not been the legal intern for the foundation since September.

Correction: Stephen Gaskin's cult was called "The Farm" and it was located in Summertown, TN.

I can't decide if this is hilarious or frightening.

I guess the Wikipedia policy of "No Legal Threats" doesn't apply to the personal blogs of Wikipedians.

Considering the fact that the Wiki foundation is still based on public donations, I do not think they can justify running after an intern. The Guardian may be but not the intern. Tough call, funny and frightening all in one. Good luck Dan.

@richard bennett

sincere question. are you really calling the farm a cult? or just trying to make a point?

do you have any idea what ina may gaskin has done to protect women against the "birth as a medical emergency" model/mindset perpetuated by ama encouraged obstetricians? and how many lives she has saved and will continue to save?

(slightly off-topic, but i am mystified.)
