" There are unfortunately some very poor pages on the Wiki. There's this one page I always happen onto by accident that makes me angry every single time I see it because it's basically written like a poorly-worded review and is the worst thing ever. But I can never remember which one it is. :( The point is, lazy assholes want easy points. "Further strengthening the point of a wiki history. The admins/mods most likely have it, but when you have a wiki history open for everyone to see it would encourage people to think a little more before they make their edits.
This page. Bad spelling and grammar, and what isn't original writing is copied from Wikipedia. Bad stuff.
" it's not. the top editor (who i'll assume wrote that page) has 1,000+ wiki points so his submission wasn't moderated. you can try to put up a wiki task here to get someone to fix that mess of a page "The top editor is also a moderator.

Really? The same text is repeated twice with bad grammar, and the rest is just copy and pasted straight from Wikipedia. And this has been there for God knows who long.

End of semi-rant.
EDIT: Someone has now filled out he article with original content and made it miles better than before. Big kudos to that person, but this does not solve the problem in general. I will repeat what i said in my posts below. If you have a wiki history open for everyone to see it would encourage people to think a little more before they make their edits. I think this would be a step forward to a better wiki.
" I understand that you guys can't handle the raw sex appeal of Carlton, but I'm not changing my avatar. "I'm at work, you know. What if my boss caught me looking at Giant Bomb and seeing Carlton, huh? Do you know how much trouble I can get into for that?
" @Jeknod said:Do I go with the over-used and ironic "yes" answer or do I go even edgier and whip out a "no" answer, and put you down immediately?" @LiquidPrince said:Are you 12? "" @ShaunassNZ: My chick is not a slut. I'd punch you in the face if I heard you call her that in person. Secondly, I don't think you understand what porn is. "Yvonne Strahovski is such a slutty slut. "
