Good on the wiki editors!
Jonathan Whitcomb is not happy. Why, he merely tried to quotemine a paleontologist who thinks the ropen story is bullshit, by putting in a tiny excerpt from said paleontologist’s words that said cryptozoologists have to look in remote corners of the world for their subjects. Twice. Undone both times by an alert editor, with a warning given that that kind of misrepresentation is unacceptable.
I also see a note that “Websites by the author of the book are given undue weight as sources, and the article is largely acting simply to regurgitate their contents. Unsourced statements outright clipped.”
It must be an unending battle as kooks try to exercise their right to corrupt Wikipedia, and others struggle to undo the damage.
