Partisan tugs of war are better played outside Wikipedia

I started editing Wikipedia in 2006 because Wikipedia articles on some of my favorite subjects came up so high on search engines and many of them were atrocious. I am a long-time (1972 & 1979-2007) anti-nuclear-peace-libertarian-decentralist-green-feminist-drug legalization volunteer activist. (Note: Point of View does not equal Conflict of Interest). But I finally got burnt out with activism and fed up with the sexism of some male activists.

So in 2007, at age 59, I started editing Wikipedia seriously. Within a couple years I had developed the "Wikipedia first" view that abusing core policies to push POVs is just plain tacky. And POVs certainly are not an excuse to trash Biographies of living people. Dealing with such trashing has consumed at least 30% of my Wikipedia time.
During 2014 I found myself more and more concerned about, and working on, harassment and civility issues. Editors and supporters inside and outside Wikipedia should keep trying to make Wikipedia a more collaborative effort for everyone: older people, shy people, civil people, people of color, academics, professionals and even assertive women like me! It's embarrassing to be part of an effort where some editors combine in battlefield alliances to drive off others so they can keep putting crappy material into the encyclopedia and/or removing accurate, well-sourced information from it.
To end, study your Wikipedia:Five pillars and don't be afraid to be bold in using Wikipedia:Dispute resolution. And keep your temper and your testosterone under control. If I can (usually) keep my temper, you can, too!
