Wikipedia volunteers dropping like flies


Volunteers who maintain Wikipedia are quitting in droves, burnt out from the stress of maintaining the free online encyclopedia.

According to The Wall Street Journal,the site has seen a net loss of 49,000 editors during the first three months of the year, 10 times the net loss of 4,900 during the same period a year earlier. Wikipedia officials, however, told the paper that they still have enough people to get the work done.
