Great Wikipedia Editing Debates




Arguments over the nuances of Wikipedia entries are a barometer of the defining philosophical questions of a generation, spanning the major topic areas from 'Politics,' 'Ethnic Feuds' and 'Religion' to 'Star Wars.'

Is it 'The Beatles' or 'the Beatles?' Should a photo be included with 'Feces' post? Is 'Hummus' Israeli cuisine, or Arab food illegally occupied by Zionists? And what is the correct pronunciation of 'pwned?'

Personally I wonder how the great Limp Bizkit genre war was resolved? 'Nu metal/rapcore,' 'rapcore/nu metal' or the more popular 'shithouse?'
