It's a wiki, i. e. a collaborative effort, and the whole point is that other people are supposed to edit it. Any bias (real or perceived) is mitigated if a large number of people are contribute to it. 

Most of what I've written there has been mentioned here anyway and I'd be helpful to others if you would add your replies to the wikipage. :-)

Thanks, I wasn't aware of that preference, thanks.

No, I haven't. (My new university has a cms, so I didn't need to edit web pages remotely in a while.) 

But as far as I understand rmate only works via ssh, and I do not have ssh access to all necessary university web servers. To most, I have ftp access (which is antiquated, unencrypted and the whole nine yards, but I'm not in a position to change it). 

In any way, thanks!
