Just this goy...

Thursday, March 08, 2007

It is my opinion that Wikipedia is being relentlessly targeted to "spin" and market products, persons, and points of view. Not at all unexpected, given its massive popularity on the internet; it's the most important free medium of communication now, and possibly ever.

[[Martha Beck]] is a great example of a vanity article, and the awe-inspiring efforts of the Church of Latter-Day Saints to subvert Wikipedia's NPOV. No, really, you must read the article's history.

I forgot to mention the reason I was at the the Martha Beck article in the first place; Martha Beck is also the name of one half of [[The Honeymoon Killers]] duo, who were executed on 8 March, a much more historically significant personae than the one whose flawed bio article currently has the title.
