The Anarchopedia .org is the first large public wiki to attempt to eliminate all sysop vandalism.

It's original stated goal was to let any user undelete pages, making ad hominem delete no worse a problem than ad hominem revert. Without this special power to prevent their opponents from reading the alternative view, it is thought, sysop power structure will not form at all. Apparently it has not lived up to this goal fully.

The Anarchopedia's policy effort builds on prior efforts at Recyclopedia - an attempt to build a large public wiki without use of sysop powers at all. This failed however when many pages were renamed, censored, attacked, vandalized and moved by overt supporters of Wikimedia - this is not disputed - who had preferential access to vandalbot technology developed by Tim Starling, - this is not disputed - a notable advocate of technological escalation - likely to prevent the New Troll point of view from spreading. The Recyclopedia failed, and evidence of the above was largely removed from view.

By contrast, Anarchopedia seems not only to embrace but seek to extend the NTPOV to all aspects of wiki governance and wiki management. There are no vile mailing lists and no cabal of friends with infrastructure owners trust as there is at Wikipedia.

It is also notable for embracing a one wiki model. It has some problems addressing language vs. area specializations.
