Wikipedia locks Revere page after Palin remarks


One more reason why Wiki is as unreliable as guessing about facts…

JUNEAU, Alaska – Sarah Palin’s version of American Revolutionary war hero Paul Revere’s ride has triggered a tug of war over the Wikipedia entry on that historic event.

Dozens of changes were made to the Revere page on the Internet site Sunday and Monday after Palin claimed Revere’s famous 1775 ride was intended to warn both his fellow colonists and British soldiers. The page features a padlock, which Wikimedia Foundation spokesman Jay Walsh said can provide a cooling-off period when there are numerous attempts to edit a site.
