[Freeswitch-dev] FreeSWITCH Wikipedia Article

I am in a 'neutral' position in that I have extensive PBX experience and
am a user of Asterisk.  In fact, I use Asterisk a lot because I'm still
learning FS and FS is still under development.


I wrote a new 'design' section in the WP article.  Also, a user named
'cryptic' just added a history section, although it is a bit light for
my taste.  I'll see if I can flesh it out a bit.


Hopefully Mr. Calltech won't consider me non-neutral simply because I
have posted occasionally on the FS mailing lists! :-|

I would suggest that anyone who isnt a core developer to add to the
content of the main FreeSWITCH[tm] page at

You dont have to create an account to add content, just click the edit
link, although accounts are also helpful in knowing who exactly is
saying something.  Even 1 line (that is ontopic, relevant, and
informative) can be helpful to show that there is more of a community
than 3 people. 

In addition to that, please do NOT just list a bunch of links, they will
flag it for spam if you do.  If you want to add links to some resource
they have to be in a paragraph as part of the content, or a footnote at
the bottom of the page. 

The more people that add little bits of content about FreeSWITCH[tm] the
less likely calltech will 'win' in his latest attempt to squelch yet
another open source telephony project.

The project and I have been defamed on Wikipedia and the comments in
this about me being hostile and various other things related to the
FreeSWITCH article.  The wikipedia editor is linking me with an
anonymous poster and now has elevated this from my inquiry as to why 
he keeps tagging the article as spam to something personal.

I have forbidden the core freeswitch developers from posting on
wikipedia since the last time the article was tagged as spam.

I would also like to point out the person that keeps tagging 
FreeSWITCH as spam and quick deletion has also had OpenSER, YATE and
Callweaver deleted from wikipedia under similar circumstances.

I feel personally damaged by this Wikipedia editors comments directed
right at me.
