I think you're assuming a lot there.Do we really need to drive a wedge in the small group of magicians who are trying to add useful historical information for current and future magicians, making them decide which wiki to do their work (or both)?
I guess my biggest beef is that he cut off communications by banning me from his wiki during my attempt to try and come up with a solution that would hopefully benifit the magic community at large, by working together.

It's like having a sign on some oranges at the end of your garden saying PLEASE FEEL FREE TO TAKE THESE ORANGES and then moaning when someone takes one.
