This is exactly what I feared would happen when I saw W.R. demonstrate vandalizing a page on another wiki, but ten times worse. These teachers have the same understanding as the guy who wrote the Sigenthaler article --" ... well no one really uses this as a reference or believes anything it says."However even non-controversial articles can sometimes fall prey to
disheartening (for those who care about what they wrote or corrected or
reorganized)and constant vandalism. To give but one example: It would
seem (or so the regulars surmise) that the very non-controversial
"Industrial revolution article" has been assigned as a class (or a
multi class) exercise in a school with good Web access, somewhere. As
a result we have been recently getting swarms of infantile vandalism (
Jason is a -expletive deleted-)(our teacher Miss -name X- is a
-expletive deleted-) on the article, at more or less regular intervals.
