Make Wikipedia conferences truly open to all by allowing Greg Kohs to attend

Greg was not allowed to attend the Wikiconference USA in New York 2014, although the conference description stated that it was open to all.

I pledge that I won't attend any Wikipedia-related conferences to which Greg Kohs is not invited if he meets all other criteria of attendees.

The Wikipedia community that I belong to is not about exclusion.

      Greg Kohs is a bigot. He first made a homophobic comment, then made light of it later. But I do believe that Wikipedian conferences must be open to all who don't present a threat, bigots tho they may be.

      Greg, I thought you were above this: http://wikipediocracy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=104188#p104188

      Guess not.

      This conference was advertised as open to all, including those critical of Wikipedia. Why is my work on this "encyclopedia" being leveraged by a bunch of emotionally dead autistic creeps to get free trips to NYC, recognition by the media, etc and so on, while summarily banning people from their conferences and forbidding conversation about it on their website? I don't like it at all.

      I'm a reporter that Wikipedia does not consider to be "reliable."

      I'd like to meet the guy and hear what he's got to say. If anyone can point me to a good reason for banning him, I'll withdraw my support. I haven't seen one yet.

      Greg Kohs is the investigative reporter with the most extensive reporting and deepest articles on Wikipedia and the Wikimedia Foundation.
