Wikipedia biography attacks Australian Federal Police chief for several days

"Cyber bandit sabotages top cop"

Wikipedia has been forced to lock its profile page on Australian Federal Police chief Mick Keelty after a cyber vandal portrayed him as a deranged conspiracy theorist.

Some of this is impressive (in a negative way) stuff:

"In fact, the last time he went to church was at his own christening and the priest attempted to drown him. "

"And one day there will a man with a black outfit and a really fast black car. And he will be called Batman. Excuse me while I take my medication. My head doctor calls them my happy pills. I'm a little teapot....."

And what's even more impressive (in a negative way), is that those attacks seem to have sat there for nine days

Tell me again how Wikipedia is almost as accurate as Encyclopedia Britannica.
