Wikipedia's Strickland affair:

Strickland is a new Nobel prize winner who, before the prize, had never been put up for promotion to full professor (embarrassing her employer) and had two attempts at creating a Wikipedia article shot down (which should have, but apparently didn't, embarrassed the people who did it). This trio of op-eds examines how everyone responded, how we can do better, or (in the third case) why the writer thinks we shouldn't try to do better.

@11011110 wow, that third one is quite a thing. Pedantic arguments about semantic points the author has invented out of whole cloth are *so* convincing 🙄
