Thanks to @ischade for pointing this out. I had no idea Wikipedia basically started out as a proprietary porn site.

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bomis

@liaizon glad you enjoyed the link. :) basically I can't resist posting about it, b/c I find it hilarious.

@liaizon You're pretty lax in your interpretation. Wikipedia was never proprietary and never a porn site, and Nupedia was neither. However Jimbo Wales (who have created the latter and helped to host the former) got part of his money from porn business.

It is pretty wild to call #wikipedia a #porn site based on that its hosting was paid by someone who did also porn sites.

Nevertheless, the real fact *is* interesting. Would be fun to see how many sites are connected to money from porn.
