Not sure what your point is, but my opinion changes in response to new evidence, rather than sticking to old opinions, come what may.

  Those of you who have an
 interest in
  Wikispecies, or Wikidata
 (two
  projects hosted by the Wikimedia
 Foundation, who also host
  Wikipedia)
  might like to know that the two projects are
 now linked. For
  an
 
 overview, see;
 
   
 https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Wikispecies
 
  This is the first stage of
 their integration; the second
  will allow
  Wikispecies to pull data from Wikidata onto
 its pages.
 
  What happens
 after that is still being discussed, but
 
 technically
  there is potential for all the
 data to be migrated to
  Wikidata (where
  a lot of it is currently duplicated), and for
 Wikidata to be
  a front
  end
 to view or edit that data.
