First, we have "Sheeeeeit" (with five 'e's.)
Peter Symonds deleted it for being "implausible".

Then, we have the Reddit thread complaining about Symonds. Normally Reddit is a very pro-Wiki place, but I've been seeing more complaints on there recently about admin hijinks. So it appears that when Wikipedia runs utter crap, Redditors approve. When the crap is deleted, they object. confused.gif

Interesting - Clay Davis was what sprang to mind instantly when I saw it. I wonder if it got any coverage in the media...
