Re: [MediaWiki-l] Introducing: Professional.Wiki

From: Pine W <>

The mailing list description says that the permitted types of announcements
are for "new versions, bug fixes, and security issues." Advertising of
commercial services is not included.

You do realize that, by making such a fuss, you're providing the new Professional.Wiki and their luminary founders with tonnes of free advertising, right?

And you do realize that, by making such a fuss in the very list you're fussing about, you are breaking the very rule you pillory others for breaking?

Although I run my own wiki and don't need professional hosting, I know this discussion has improved my impression of the new service.

And now, having taken this to the meta-meta level, I'll say no more. :slight_smile:
