Wikipedia sucks now

ram_chandra: the "defamer" confessed .. Seigenthaler is made to look like the good guy because he decided not to take him to court .. no mention of the fact that to defame one must be with 'malicious intent' toward the defamed, and in this case, the intent was not malicious, and not directed at the "defamed" ... oh to live in such enlightened times!
ram_chandra: i guess the guy in question doesn't even know that it's him who's been slandered ... since he probably can't afford to see a lawyer .. since he apologised in person
ram_chandra: please correct me if i'm wrong.
ram_chandra: "what i'm after is accountability" said the famed defender of free speech.
