YES! The Wiki will NEVER be a paid service. Ever.

Not really. If you're a moron at Echoing the Sound, NIN.com, or any other outside site, that does not mean that you will be one over here. There has only been one instance where someone has been barred from editing the NinWiki due to outside behavior, and it was because he threatened the life of an ETS administrator's family.
