Submission + - Latest XKCD strip stirs up debate at Wikipedia 1

ctrl-alt-canc writes: Yesterday the popular XKCD comic strip showed a comic strip about a not so well known neologism, and its corresponding description on Wikipedia. The strip apparently upset several Wikipedia editors, so that the description was promptly dropped from Wikipedia, and there is now a strong debate if to reinstate the entry, or to permanently delete it. Maybe it is time to file a petition for having the definition of malamanteau back on Wikipedia.

Latest XKCD strip stirs up debate at Wikipedia

  • I read the comic and the wiki site yesterday. As usual, xkcd was right on the money while being "teh funny". But i suppose when you open up an information site where anyone can contribute, you are bound to get inane controversial arguments. This is the internet after-all.

System going down in 5 minutes.
