The secret of the wiki is that a vandal simply doesn't have as much
motivation as an editor. In the long run, there are going to be a lot
more editors spending a lot more time on the wiki than there are

to those who know more. When several know more, they tend to
collaborate more than compete. Sounds hokey, but just look at the
results. If it didn't work, Wikipedia wouldn't be the great treasure
trove it has so rapidly become.
