So yeah, not big and not clever in my opinion. After you cope with this **** over and over again you get a bit tired of it.
Sorry pal, I really thought you were kidding. I use Wiki a lot, and to be honest I have never encountered anything like this. It could just be the boring stuff I reference though (usually history or literature related).
