So many reasons the WMF did not want to answer my Reddit questions about bad science. Number one probably being they are already aware of the problem, have cushy jobs, and don’t want to bring any more notice to it than necessary.

Well done.

This blog asks talks about the results of a plagiarism survey, showing that regular Wikipedians tend to plagiarize more often than student Wikipedians. 

10% of the crap on Wikipedia is plagiarized. And they know it. And they have no intention of stopping it.

What happens when a plagiarist is found out? Usually nothing. They have to be found out multiple times. Then, their known plagiarized content sits on en.Wikipedia for months more.

Way for anyone to plagiarize an encyclopedia, Wikipedia!
