I still think that my question is a good one.

That article has a lot of good information in it, IMO.
Of course it's not as "pro-transhumanist" as we would
like. Stefano's next post clarifies the central point.

But whatever.  The main focus of my concern, as 
indicated by the subject line, is *not* their handling
of one particular subject. I was inquiring to what
general extent Wikipedia and its scions can be 
considered "corrupt". Several people, especially
BillK and Stefano, have made helpful remarks,
letting me know to what degree they agree with
Michael A's original accusation.
