Microsoft effort to correct Wikipedia entry creates controversy
Sounds like it's about time to invent a 'Arbitrating Wiki': Wiki with discussion pages to get contributions in, but still add all contributions into a structure of statements, opinions, arguments, and have them weighed by the broad public, so the system can decide where the generel public is at. Something like a 'continuous poll'. Perhaps added with accepted theory, facts, measurements...
Now, it seems, there's still a danger that the loudest yelling minority wins.
