w:Talk:Fallujah reported that Jim Wales' "work under the title " "GodKing" for several years encouraged new Wikipedia leaders to use cult-like language that discouraged opposition to his views, and to disparage those who offer counterveiling policies. Bomis's owner Jim Wales set the direction away from a peer-reviewed encyclopedia, and presents as a primary pundit against the feasibility of reviewed encyclopedias in numerous interviews."

In other words, if you have a GodKing maybe you get a priestly hierarchy without meaning to, and you can never easily recover from that?
This bears discussion. Do people defer more by habit in a culture that was originated by a GodKing?
