Q: Why was Radar so obsessed with fixing Omnictionary?
Well, Radar really values knowledge and empathy and understanding. And the whole project of Wikipedia (or omnictionary) is a battle between those who seek to inform the world and preserve knowledge, and those who seek to destroy knowledge and spread disinformation.
(This is why I oppose Wikipedia vandalism—even very clever Wikipedia vandalism like Margo’s.)
So I wanted him to be a committed omnictionary editor because I wanted him to be someone who stands for knowledge and understanding and balance and fairness and all the values that well-curated wikis celebrate.
