It's often said that Wikipedia is dying. This is the latest in a long line of technological deaths. Earlier, the WikiWikiWeb died. Before that, Usenet died.

Reasons why Wikipedia is dying include and may not be limited to:

  • All the serious editors are leaving
  • The only people who hang around are children, mad, or mad children
  • Most edits are now made by robots
  • Article syntax is too complicated for normal users and new editors
  • Pop culture articles are longer than science or history articles
  • Power-hungry administrators are warring against content creators so they can delete everything and rule a perfect, empty wiki [Is this right? -- Ed.]
  • The people with the most time to edit are also those with the most time and inclination to argue in perpetuity
  • Nobody bothers to capitalize and punctuate (mostly because they are depraved parents)
  • The Great Space Wombat said it was

Wikipedia has been dying since at least 100 years ago.
