Moreschi became involved, in least in part, because of the mud-slinging on that list aimed at his friend krimpet. She recently responded
to SlimVirgin on the now renamed page Requests_for_arbitration/Durova/Evidence:
SlimVirgin, one thing that you have still left unaddressed is how you are the administrator of WpCyberstalking - the Mailman page explicitly identified the sole administrator as "slimvirgin at gmail.com" until it was changed after its existence went public - and you yourself have been responsible for some of the most deplorable uses of the list, slinging mud at and defaming contributors to this project in a closed forum - I'm looking right at a post by you calling me a "troll enabler" and exhorting "Let the Krimpets block the good editors and unblock the stalkers." It is this kind of secret behavior that has the project up in arms, and why this matter goes far beyond the single unfortunate block of !!. --krimpet⟲ 21:49, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

The elite crowd of vindictive edit warriors and POV-pushers have won. They control the content of our encyclopedia to suit their own points of view. They know all the right buttons to push, all the right strings to pull. They've got all the right connections, right up to those in charge. Make any effort to try to hold them accountable for their actions, keep them civil, offer constructive criticism, or anything of the sort, and they make sure you pay the price — as I've now learned firsthand.
Wikipedia is an amazing project. It deeply saddens me that it's slowly going down in flames. I really hope that someday, the community takes back their project from the hands of the vindictive elite.
