Wikipedia anti vandalism move


"Instead of the text and images one would expect from a reputable encyclopedia, the reader discovers vulgarities and either incorrect or deliberately distasteful writing. Vandalized versions are displayed for several hours a day to readers and editors alike. Many edits to these high-profile articles are reversions of vandalism. In the worst case articles receive few good edits; instead, they have turned into battlegrounds in which virtually every edit is either one by a vandal or one reverting vandalism. So much time is wasted that nothing substantive can be done to improve the material or quality of information in these articles. This situation tarnishes the reputation of Wikipedia and hampers the efforts of reputable editors to improve article content quality." p2pnet.net - the original daily p2p and digital media news site
