Why should there be anything on Wikipedia about it? Why would you
expect an encyclopedia to contain discussion and analysis of the
absurd allegations of trolls and stalkers?
If I knew nothing about SV and her Wikipedia history, I would at least
expect my n00b question of "SV, what's this on /. about you supposedly being
some sort of spy?" or my n00b statement of fact like "SV, there's this
thing on /. about you being a secret agent" to be responded to civilly, with
at least a brief explanation, rather than having them being removed from the
talk page without a trace,
If Wikipedia Review started alleging you were a pedophile, do you
imagine you respond civilly to questions of "John, what's all this
about you being a pedophile"?
