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.
your DMOZ 2.0 quote had me laughing!
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.
It facinating how wikipedia is its own ecosystem...
