That's exactly what I said. Wikipedia is freely edited by all participants,
and someone I know took Tolkien off at my suggestion, and somebody else
immediately put him back! I haven't checked back to see how things are
going; I fear the addictive quality of Wikipedia.
The person who put him back thought (mistakenly) that Tolkien had been
removed due to his Catholicism.
