Wikipedia tightens rules

Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia to which anyone can contribute, is tightening submission rules after a prominent journalist complained that an article falsely implicated him in the Kennedy assassinations.

Wikipedia will now require users to register before they can create articles, Jimmy Wales, founder of the St. Petersburg, Florida-based Web site, said Monday. People who modify existing articles will still be able to do so without registering. - Online encyclopedia tightens rules - Dec 5, 2005
