Ross Mayfield, blogger and wiki-advocate has suggested on Many-to-Many that wiki fans use a wiki themselves to write a letter to the Times about why they should reconsider:
“Okay, I’m still a bit irked that the LA Times Editors shut down the Wikitorials community. I started to become engaged in the community and saw promise. They shut it down without warning and without thinking things through to begin with.
So, why not use a wiki to compose a letter to the editors of the LA Times? Let’s write an Open Letter to the Wikitor. Who knows, they might even acknowledge or print it.”
