Our friends at Takimag have posted an excellent column by John Derbyshire on the sins of Wikipedia.
Derbyshire tried to correct his own entry, posted by someone obviously out to get him. He sums up the entire fraud in the sentence: “They can say what they like about you, employing any level of sub-literacy for the purpose, and there isn’t a darn thing you can do about it. I had heard this, but just hadn’t believed they are really so brazen.” Welcome to the club! Some lunatic Nordicist completely vandalized my entry, and despite the efforts of well-meaning souls, it is still, the last time I looked, a hopeless tissue of lies and disinformation.
