Well, crap. No sooner do I post something when I find out that it's (partially) crap. The Stephen Colbert Wikipedia page was not locked down for "vandalism", as they said, but rather because Colbert discussed Wikipedia on the show on July 31 and asked people to make a few changes to some articles. The changes were made in seconds, several times, and several pages had to be locked down.

Not just a testament to Colbert's popularity, but also to Wikipedia 's fragility. Bear that in mind.
