The British Department of Health has been banned from Wikipedia. DoH employees made 1500 edits in two years on the online encyclopedia that anyone, except apparently anyone with something to say, can edit. The minister of state said Wikipedia had banned them for making "too many edits," even though two edits a day sounds pretty reasonable for a major government organization. From now on, anyone from the DoH will have to sign in with a username, which should make it harder for anyone to notice if the department's trying to push any certain message. Thanks, Wikipedia, for making sure governments don't get too transparent, and ensuring that it will be easier for my cousin Mac to spread the truth that humans are solid all the way through, like potatoes. Below, a few other people who've been banned:

  • Stephen Colbert
  • The German Parliament
  • The Washington Post
  • The nation of Qatar
  • The U.S. House of Representatives
