Re: I used to edit Wikipedia...
For what its worth, I am a 'reasonably' busy editor, with all my edits remaining unchallenged except for about 4. And that garners me with about as much respect as everyone here by the sounds.
The thing that REALLY pissed me off only recently however was some fuckhead who argued that me uploading a small gmail envelope icon for use in a user info box was deemed copyright infringement. After I pointed out to that editor (yes, not even an admin, though he is sleeping with and blackmailing some if the result of this exchange is anything to go by) that his own user page contains some copyright logos, he explained that those were OK because they consisted only of simple geometric shapes and were thus not eligible for copyright protection.
I would have been fine with that, had the gmail envelope icon been something other then... a simple geometric shape and thus not eligible for copyright protection. After I pointed this out, he changed his tune saying that single letter logos (such as the Opera 'O') were allowed as they were uncopyrightable under US law. When I pointed out that the Opera 'O' also has a shadow underneath, and thus isn't a single letter, some other editor/admin gets involved, and tells ME to check up on the rules regarding copyright in a somewhat threatening tone.
But all is well. I am a patient guy and one of them will die eventually and the other will revert (pun intended) into the spineless muppet he is and let others get down to actually editing and improving articles instead of dealing with his political fuck buddies.
