Some Guy, Defamed in Wikipedia, Throws a Hissy Fit

Somebody no one really knows much about has a Wikipedia article written about him. What does it say? He was behind the slayings of both John and Robert Kennedy.

So instead of editing the darn article himself, he writes a big article complaining about it in the USA Today. Now, everybody is going to associate this guy with the Kennedy assignation. When he dies, it will be in his obit.

Probably 5 people read his Wikipedia article.

Sometimes you need to know when to keep quiet and just edit your article.

I agree; i saw something about this on I am a big fan of wikipedia. Your argument is good, very few people would have noticed, he could have just edited it. Granted, the site shouldn't be used for real academic work, but is an excellent resources for brushing up on various topics...
