Wikipedia protects some entries

This NY Time article explains why wikipedia has chosen to protect some 82 articles and semi-protect another 179. Essentially in response to constant vandalism and disputes. I like they way they handle things and have stated these articles will not always stay protected.

Seems a bit like taking the ball away from kids at recess when they’re not playing nice. Sometimes you have to do it.
