Essjay, part I

Essjay is/was many things - a faker who should have been sussed out early on, a guy in over his head, proof that Jimmy Wales is the dictionary example of a "substandard manager." He was also the highest point of the (possible first) Wikipedia wave, where that first cadre of editors looked at what they knew, checked it against the facts, and began abandoning "The Project" in droves.
