six_crazy_guys: How wikipedia turned a man into a zombie

So, Edward Groesbeck Voss recently died. This was reported on important mailing lists and on blogs. But we can't say it in his Wikipedia article! After all, these are not reliable!

Then comes along a helpful gnome, who adds Persondata and the Category "Living people". Wait! We can't have that either! That's uncited too!

So basically we have a guy and we are not allowed to state either that he is alive OR that he is dead. What are we to do? Describe him as a Zombie? Schrödinger would be proud.

I love the comment from yesterday - "Schrödinger would have been proud."
