Top 5 Most Contested & Controversial Wikipedia Entries

|

According to The Economist, these are the five most contested/controversial Wikipedia entries (in English), based on the number of “reverts” — a change to an entry that is repeatedly done by one person and then undone by somebody else (not listed in order).

1. George W. Bush

2. Global Warming

3. Muhammad

It’s no surprise that those three entries are controversial, given the topics: politics and religion (isn’t global warming a form of religion for some advocates?). But what about these next two?

4. Anarchism 

I guess that’s another entry in the politics category, but what about this one?

5. List of World Wrestling Entertainment personnel? — What’s up with that? Why is that so controversial?
