Why would I ever pay for something that I get for free? I mostly use it for the wicktionary side of it when I need something defined; I never used the articles themselves for anything other than entertainment, and I haven't even done that in years, since it became obvious that it was becoming leftist retcon.

Let it fall apart, let all the mainstream sites fall apart, so that younger, freer, more critically thinking sites take their place.

I ignored Wikipedia donation requests from the start.

It was clear since inception Wikipedia is controlled by lying technocratic globalist-communists, given that facts that expose mainstream lies are eliminated by the "editors" (so-called).

Hey now, back in the wild wild west days wiki and google were an awesome one two punch....I was in a biochem class in 2008 and we were having a discussion about a chemical compound and no one could think of the answer and I suddenly said "Hey I know! Let's wiki it!" I then pulled out my BlackJack phone and had the answer by googling it and selecting the first wiki answer within seconds. That was pretty fly! Fuckem now tho....fuck this woke mind poison that permeates everything these days....

Donating to the wayback archive is probably better. It preserves some of the history of government censorship and fraud.

Why pay for wikipedia when you can make up lies and misinformation by yourself?

Yeah. It's way more fun that way.

I'll not donate again, since they dropped support for cryptocurrency donations and I found several wiki entries I had referred to in the past had not only removed the content, but they had erased the history, making the whole entries seem to be brand new...as of after the controversies. History rewritten without a trace; pretty scary.

Never gave them a dime, never will.

After a decade of professional fund-raising, it has now amassed $400 million of cash as of March. It created an endowment, managed by the Tides Foundation, which now holds well over $100 million of that. The Foundation wanted to hit that figure in ten years, but found it had sailed past it in just five. In 2021, the appeals raised a total of $162 million, a 50% year-on-year increase. Yet the running costs of Wikipedia are a tiny fraction of the amount raised each year."
