When an online encylopedia goes bad
This entry comes from Guest Blogger RMHED, who probably doesn’t really care how you pronounce his name.
There sits on Wikipedia a short biography of a minor British showbiz personality - let’s call him Mr X. It is unloved and unwatched. How do I know this? Well, for over 7 weeks [...]http://wikipediareview.com/blog/20090613/now-thats-tragic/
Would you like to do some numbers than and calculate how big the audience was for this, using the Wikipedia article traffic statistics?
Less than a 1,000, but that isn't the point, this biography, if you can call it that, has no business being on Wikipedia. No credible encyclopedia has an article on this individual, but as Wikipedia isn't so much an encyclopedia as a repository of shite, then I really shouldn't be surprised should I.
