Here is an interesting article by David Swindle of

Wikipedia's problems with biographies of living persons. Swindle sees it in

And (at least when I went there) it plays annoying audio ads when you
go there, placed "below the fold" so that you can't even quickly find
the "stop" button for them... makes one appreciate all the more how
Wikipedia is one of the few major sites that doesn't have any ads
(well, except the periodic fundraising pitches, but so far those
don't blast audio at you). Hopefully the form of hell that marketing
people will go to after they die will include an eternity of ads
blasting at them from all directions.
I won't pretend to agree with everything he
says--it is not helpful to
compare Michael Moore to Ann Coulter or Keith Olbermann to Glenn Beck.
Why not? Of course they're not all identical other than their
political views... no two people are. However, they all have in
common being outspoken commentators for political causes, so the
differing treatment of the outspoken leftists vs. outspoken rightists
