Source Wars: Wikipedia’s Most Controversial Pages

Researchers at Oxford University recently determined the most controversial pages on Wikipedia by examining the website’s pages where content is most frequently changed—and later reverted—by volunteer editors.

Unsurprisingly, almost all fall into the traditionally polarizing topics of politics and religion.

The bio for George W. Bush topped the list, and anarchism, global warming and race placed high. Faith-based subjects including Muhammad, Jesus, Christianity, as well as circumcision also made the list.
