Buzzfeed articles

Note that there have been two recent Buzzfeed articles about Commons and
Wikipedia, by Jack Stuef, who is a writer for The Onion:


1. The Epic Battle For Wikipedia's Autofellatio Page

In the underbelly of Wikipedia is an exhibitionist subculture dedicated to
one thing: Ensuring that their penis is the visual definition of penis.
Meet Jiffman, one such exhibitionist. (This article is very probably NSFW.)

A shorter version of this article is also available in French:

Autofellation: le combat dun exhibitionniste pour illustrer la page de
Wikipedia

http://www.slate.fr/lien/52805/autofellation-wikipedia


2. Wikipedia's Kiddie Porn Problem

Wikipedia's self-policing isn't working.

A shorter summary of this story is also on Gizmodo:

Why Is It So Hard to Get Kiddie Porn Off of Wikipedia?
