    •  You see the history (3+ / 0-)

      When I read Wikipedia, I always review the history page  for the article. This actually tells you a lot about the controversies on a topic (and a lot of times is more interesting than the article itself). What I find amazing is how quickly improper changes are caught.

    •  For a recent bit of Wikipedia argument (2+ / 0-)

      See the talk page at the Criticism of George W. Bush listing.

      Not only was criticism of Bush largely knocked out of the main Bush article, but now there's an argument over whether even mentioning "The Pet Goat" is allowable: "The choice of lesson plan material chosen by the teacher is not notable with regard to criticism of Bush."

      Sad and silly. I think their dander was fuffed after I placed a picture of Bush's leap to action on 9/11 next to the section that described it. The article is now locked until the 20th; "The Pet Goat" isn't currently mentioned, but the pic is still there.

      The Pet Goat has its own article, though, which, according to critics of Criticism, is unconscionable to cross-reference to.

      "To such thinking you have only to say 'the land you loved is doomed' to excuse any treachery, indeed to glorify it." -Tolkien, On Fairy-Stories, 1938.
