In accordance with the new policy on wikipedia, the Seigenthaler 
entry is now protected and can't be edited anymore. On the site, it 
now says

"This page has recently been featured in a major source outside of 
Wikipedia. As a result, it is experiencing higher than normal 
traffic, and has become the target of vandalism. It has consequently 
been protected from editing. We apologize for the inconvenience, and 
invite you to look at and edit any of our over 800,000 other 

I wonder, if the "major source outside of Wikipedia" is this air-list ;-)
