addition of an attempt to keep minors out of whatever remains in that
area, and the removal of most pop-cultural stuff including reducing
mention of Star Trek to a single article). It concluded with a
threat of unspecified retribution of a "Doomsday Machine" nature
which would allegedly result in the destruction of Wikipedia. Just
thought you ought to know that we're allegedly all doomed now... :-)
Haven't I heard this one before?
It caused quite a stir, but September 1, 2004 passed without incident. Hey,
maybe it's the same guy! OMG, maybe he's actually *got* a network of proxies
and compromised machines this time! The end is nigh!
