+ - Dead man's Wikipedia entry changed in advance

Submitted by Ykant
Ykant (318168) writes "According to an AP article, the Wikipedia entry of pro wrestler Chris Benoit (who was found dead in his home earlier this week, along with his wife and child) was updated at 12:01 a.m. Monday, about 14 hours before authorities say the bodies were found. It said he missed a match Saturday night "stemming from the death of his wife." An Atlanta news station reports that a Wikipedia user has admitted to making the edits, but had no advance knowledge of the event, calling it a "terrible coincidence"."

"Now this is a totally brain damaged algorithm. Gag me with a smurfette." -- P. Buhr, Computer Science 354
