Default CP's Wikipedia article

I'm well aware that Wikipedia can be edited by anyone, but lol at this:

Criticisms
While there are some who believe this message board provides a "high level of quality information and discussion", there are many who disagree. CP has arguably become the equivalent of a totalitarian state in recent years, leaving the user who dares to go against widespread forum sentiment vulnerable to harassment, bullying, and campaigns to oust one that fails to "conform to the mob mentality." Treatment of popular Calgarypuck user TheScorpion, in particular, was deplorable when he initially joined CP.[6]

Many have felt the moderation team are too quick to ban users who share opposing views to the majority resulting in imbalanced discussion. Some even question a Superiority complex of the moderation team due to the banning of individuals from even the slightest comment or users who simply "just dont fit in" Also with the banning of popular Calgarypuck user, Lanny MacDonald, without public explaination has sparked much criticism from its existing users

Lol, what the hell?

EDIT: Wasn't aware that I'm a "popular user." Also, I would contend the notion that I was treated "deplorably"... I was a bit of a brat, honestly. I'd be quite interested to know who my internet white knight is.

one scroll through the Beyond thread about CP is enough to make me never want to visit a forum outside of this one again. this place is like a luxury penthouse suite, compared to that hobo fight club under a bridge they've got going.

David Jones has a lot of free time now. Maybe he's returning the favour.

I removed the section in question, which appears to have been first posted by an unregistered account last August before being deleted and then re-posted again this January by an account called "WpgJets4Life"

I wonder if Whiteout403 got upset over his banning here so exacted revenge via Wiki article.

Did his revenge include travelling back in time? Or maybe he’s a precog so he preemptively posted that knowing he’d get sin binned 10 months later.
