    Last user edit does not leave you much wiser. For instance last person to edit "Ireland" appears to be "Guliolopez". Who dah?

    That is noteworthy in itself, that someone (presumably an employee) of the BBC, changed George Walker Bush to George Wаnker Bush. Presumably, the "author" thought his IP address couldn't be traced to the BBC.

    As a matter of interest, there is an article in todays IT about the co-founder of wikipedia, who has gone on to found another project http://en.citizendium.org/wiki/Main_Page. One of the differences is a stricter control over editing, including requiring people to use real names, though how they verify real names is not clear to me. Problem is they only have 3000 articles so far. It's hard to see something like this achieving the breadth of wikipedia.

    From conservapedia,

    Young Earth Creationists believe, from the biblical account, that dinosaurs were created on day 6 of the creation week[5] approximately 6,000 years ago, along with other land animals, and therefore co-existed with humans. As such, they reject the Theory of Evolution and the beliefs of evolutionary scientists about the age of the earth.

    They believe that dinosaurs lived in harmony with other animals, (probably including in the Garden of Eden) eating only plants[6]; http://that pairs of each dinosaur k... from drowning[7]; that many of the fossilized dinosaur bones originated during the mass killing of the Flood[8]; and that possibly some descendants of those dinosaurs taken aboard the Ark are still around today.[9]
