Stereotypes of highly committed wikipedia editors

In a clear indication of the extent to which has permeated the popular consciousness of the developed world, the stereotype of a highly committed editor is now quite commonly understood. That some individuals consider the unusually persistent editor to be a humorous idea is demonstrated by the fact that this concept has even been discussed in mainstream, profit-seeking media.
Whether it is a sub-set of the apparently humorous idea of a individual who spends large amounts of time with their computer, or merely a observation that editing highly obscure articles is relatively useless to general society, enough humour has been found in the concept of a wiki-editing subculture that this comic idea has persisted for a number of years.
