Wikipedia Editor "Overwhelmed" by Number of Wiki Vandals

Frustrated Wikipedia editor Left: The stress of editing takes its toll

(Butte, MT) Carl Gnacchera spends a lot of time editing the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, and mostly because of the virtual vandalism created by "users hell-bent on destroying Wikitegrity," he said.

"Some nights I am up until 4:00 am undoing bullshit like "u r so gay" entered under articles on Mahatma Gandhi," he said, sipping his espresso. "If I was not there, who would weed out all of this crap?"

Gnacchera said that a recent battle with chronic vandal "Lickmytaint" nearly drove him "over the edge."

"The little prick kept editing the entry for his high school by listing the principal as 'Adolf Hitler' and the dean of students as 'Harry P. Ness,'" he lamented, lighting up a Marlboro. "I should have just let it go, but I got into this revert-unrevert battle with the asshole for almost an hour before he quit."

Wikipedia editors, reminded Gnacchera to National Nitwit reporters, are not paid for their work.

"You'd think these sick SOBs would understand that we are volunteers," he said, shaking his head. "But every 30 seconds some dipshit thinks he's funny by typing 'SKANKY SLEAZY HO' to replace an entire article on Ashlee Simpson. Yeah, Wiki always wins in the end, but what is wrong with these people?"
