I used to enjoy small wikis because it has less drama and editors are more focused, but particularly Wikispecies because it's written by scientists for other scientists. It also offers a good place to escape from English Wikipedia's drama, social constructs and politics. But I guess as the project grow, it attracts people of different calibres (some good, some not as good) and it always ending up to the lowest common denominator of the group. Once the group reaches a certain size, the visions are blurred, goals are changed, editors are jockeying for positions and forming alliances/cabals to unite against their common enemy. People no longer support discussions based on its merits, but rather on who supported it. I'm not sure if the current debacle was the result of my personal attachment to the project or simply looking for the best interest of the project. It was fun while it lasted. But all good things must come to an end. I don't know how long I'll leave (maybe forever, maybe not). When and if I come back, hopefully it'll be better in the future. But I can't be certain with the direction it is heading towards as of now.
