[/size]

[size=3]Wikimedia co-founder [url="http://gizmodo.com/tag/jimmywales/"]Jimmy Wales[/url] has abruptly stepped down following a controversial porn purge that saw Wales himself single-handedly deleting questionable content from his company's servers.[/size]

[size=3]The purge was the result of a FOX News investigation started in April that discovered a large amount of pornographic material on Wikimedia's servers. When FOX News asked Wikimedia donors how they felt about this, the questions started rolling in and the offending imagery started going away.[/size]

[size=3]Therein lies the issue: Many editors in the organization's "inner circle" disagreed with the way Wales handled the pornography deletions

Owing to their recent douchebaggery with the iPhone, I can safely say I find that shameful.

Even before the iPhone thing, I never would have counted a +1 from Gizmodo as a +1..
