Doug may have missed the fact that Wikis, including ours, has rollback
of changes.

A Wiki is closer to a discussion list than it is to formal publication.
  Obviously, if we want to publish material that emerges on a Wiki more
formally, the publisher should -read- what they copy over :-). For
example, if Arthur includes some Wiki content in our academic papers,
he'll be sure to make sure it isn't actually an ad for a gambling site
before submitting the paper to a journal. Or even just if we copy
something to the FAQ or other web page.
