on the other hand, for some instances it doesn't _deal_ with controversial subjects, but only reflects the most common opinion. Currently(*) the only way to see what's going on is to examine the history of changes to a given page, taking into account that since the updaters are anonymous there's no guarantee that one can relate their opinions to facts. (*) is there a guarantee that the change history will remain? If not, at that point one may as well delete wikipedia. -- Thomas E. Dickey http://invisible-island.net ftp://invisible-island.net
