Wikipedia User Talk: is the new Gawker

MaximCover_909.jpg Our computers at The Week share an IP address (and a publisher, at least for now) with Maxim. So when Wikipedia tells me there's a message for me, it really just means for someone at the company. And what was that message? "This is your last warning. The next time you vandalize Wikipedia, as you did to Maxim (magazine), you will be blocked from editing."

The vandalism? Adding "NOT FOR LONG" next to the name of editor-in-chief Jimmy Jellinek.

It's the question everyone has been asking: which is the more reliable journalistic enterprise, Maxim or Wikipedia?
