Momentarily laying aside my contempt for WIRED magazine (which I used to read in the mid-90s before I realised that dot com CEOs, despite having their images Photoshopped into wacky fluro colours, were neither cool nor progressive), I urge you to check out their growing database of wikiscanner exposés:

My personal favourites include:

The Electronic Software Association on the legalities of console mod-chipping and abandonware

(unearthed by GamePolitics.com)

Sega edits entry on hedgehogs to mention Sonic, "God of all hedgehogs".

Republican Party: "occupying" Iraq modified to read "liberating"

Myspace censors section on... myspace censorship

Walmart and The Gap each do an 'EA' on their working conditions

Someone at the Vatican documents his theological doubts:
"in the black iron prison christian theme park i thought it then…JEESUS NOTHING"

and perhaps the most shameful whitewash of all time:

Subway declares its food "delicious"
