athloi writes "In the wake of "The Colbert Report" host Stephen Colbert waxing philosophical about Wikipedia, making changes to entries on the air and urging his viewers to edit entries to include details he knew were false, an editor of the site has banned the comedian. True open content isn't paranoid, and it's not up for any idiot to edit, either. Wikipedia isn't OS in the same way OSS is, it's OS in the way a graffiti wall is. If OSS developers ran an encyclopedia, they'd assign developer project managers to each entry and the entries would be actually informative, unlike Wikipedia's mishmash of gossip, plagiarism and political revenge fantasies. http://news.com.com/8301-10784_3-6102088-7.html?pa rt=rss&tag=6102088&subj=news"
