A Wikipedia followup from xander77: Wow, this makes me want to slap someone. Preferably the delete-happy Wikipedian in question. Trufax for the ages: "No, the problem with Wikipedia is a bizarre amalgamation of elitism and anti-elitism which will ultimately come down to 'whatever editor is more stubborn than all the others.'
