[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Wikipedia _is_ considered an important
source of information on the net in many circles. There are many
experts (in their field) who have written for it and peer-review the
things others have written, however the two recent 'pranks' played on
them have damaged their credibility somewhat. PAT]
