[WikiEN-l] Oh shit, Slashdot is an attack site!

How can you "infiltrate" Wikipedia? It's a public website. It would be
like infiltrating a shopping centre... If MI5 or any other
organisation wishes to edit Wikipedia, they are free to, just like
anyone else.

And, as usual the Slashdot summary is terrible. It says things were
permanently removed from the database (sounds like oversight, which I
don't think SlimVirgin has), when the article says nothing of the
sort, it just says its been "surpressed" (reverted and protected as
far as I can tell - since unprotected).
