Salon has an article, Revenge, ego and the corruption of Wikipedia, about a rogue making edits.

I've got to wonder how common this is.

Great article and good analogy Shawn

your DMOZ 2.0 quote had me laughing!

All over the place

Just look up any entry for a dictorship any you won't even know it is one. It will be something like a "presidential republic" or another euphemism instead. I stopped contributing to Wikipedia many years ago because my edits got mostly vandalized.

whoa...interesting

It facinating how wikipedia is its own ecosystem...
