Default Wikipedia Editors Question Site's Blackout

It would seem that at least one of Wikipedia's volunteer editors does not support the anti-SOPA blackout. On a related note, right now is probably a good time to apply for that upcoming "volunteer editor" opening. "My main concern is that it puts the organization in the role of advocacy, and that's a slippery slope," said editor Robert Lawton, a Michigan computer consultant who would prefer that the encyclopedia stick to being a neutral repository of knowledge. "Before we know it, we're blacked out because we want to save the whales."
