That was my thinking too, though worded differently. Why can't
wikipedia be _the_ point of reference? Why does everything have to be
cited? There are many things which could be on there, the origin of
which people do not know and that people are not laying claim to but
that do exist.
Denying knowledge of thread hijacking simply because it doesn't have
any other solid point of reference (though 'hijacking of discussion
threads' is noted on the netiquette page and they haven't removed
that...) has to be some kind of censorship or just plain ignorance of
what goes on in the world. Maybe we should have cited some of our
threads where we wrote "Don't hijack threads!" to perpetrators. Maybe
that would be sufficient basis for a wikipedia page.
