[I recently made the following two posts on the Wikipediocracy site. Neither have been approved by a moderator yet. - HAC]
Wikipedia should ban the use of pseudonyms and sock puppets by editors and let them know that “each editor is liable for the legal consequences of his actions on Wikipedia and Wikipedia will provide without subpoena the address of editors to attorneys and law enforcement authorities for the service of legal process.”
When these bastards know they can’t hide behind anonymous IP addresses and they are legally responsible for what they do and say, the feuding ax-grinding ideologues and dysfunctionals will mostly vanish. Genuine scholars have nothing to fear from their identities being known.
