Every year Wikipedia asks for donations, and I give them $20.00. So yes I pay for Wikipedia. Because I use it everyday.

I've given them a dollar for every edit I've made and taken away a dollar for every edit that was removed.

They owe me

I contribute about $30 a year.
I get thousands back in information.
Remember the Encyclopedias Americana and Britannica?
Huge and hugely expensive with updates yearly. Yearly!

I also use Google a lot, but I think they get more back somehow.

Examples include facts about Sadddam's WMDs. What was written then remains factual today.
