Jilted lover airs dirty laundry, Wikipedia founder plays defense

Virtually anyone can edit an entry on Wikipedia, the popular online encyclopedia. But its founder is finding it’s not so easy to cover his tracks after a messy breakup with a TV personality and a dustup over his expenses began playing out on the web.

It’s not the first time that Jimmy Wales, Wikipedia’s de facto leader, has found his behaviour questioned – especially since no subject appears too arcane for dissection by Wikipedia’s passionate community of users. The latest episodes, however, reverberated beyond the usual diehards.

First, a former lover – political pundit Rachel Marsden – published steamy and embarrassing online chats with Wales, and dumped his clothes on EBay.

Marsden is already well-known in Canada but more for her personal life than her politics. (link)
