Submission + - Latest XKCD strip stirs up debate at Wikipedia 1

ctrl-alt-canc writes: Yesterday the popular XKCD comic strip showed a comic strip about a not so well known neologism, and its corresponding description on Wikipedia. The strip apparently upset several Wikipedia editors, so that the description was promptly dropped from Wikipedia, and there is now a strong debate if to reinstate the entry, or to permanently delete it. Maybe it is time to file a petition for having the definition of malamanteau back on Wikipedia.
