      | The whole wicked wiki project not only allows persons who have no
      | qualifications to publish entries- but anyone can edit anything you
      | write! So, for example, if you publish an entry on wiki about an
      | excavation- Joe Schmoe can come along and "correct" your entry even if
      | he has never seen a spade.

      Or, as happens, uncorrect the entry, remove spelling, punctuation and grammatical corrections, (after all, these are all things of purely personal preference and style), remove citations, and insert libellous commentary. As is, it is worse than ridiculous, it is actually counterproductive of the creator's stated goals.
