Wikipedia PR example of the week

American Geophysical Union. Given that editing on wikipedia means agreeing to certain standards, this clearly indicates that the American Geophysical Union does not hold to any ethical standards what so ever, and publishes flagrant lies about itself in the public discourse. It is also indicative that wikipedia is being capsized: over-run with advertising by any group capable of paying someone to spam wikipedia pages with whatever comes out of the PR mill. I run into about one of these a week, so will keep posting them as I find them.
