SeSco / The Main Site (it's really a wiki) / Of Popes and Wikis

Although it's a bit of a lateral connection, I thought the following deserved a passing mention, as it shows that the idea of wikis has come on over time, and they can now be found having the oddest of applications...
But it's not actually for the core of this story that I make this post, rather the comment it includes right at the end - in particular, the bit I have marked in bold. Who'd have thought? :)
However, the use of Wikipedia seems in line with Benedict's approval of the internet. After he was criticised in 2009 for being in the dark over Bishop Richard Williamson's claim that the Nazis did not use gas chambers, he wrote: "In future at the Holy See, we must pay more attention to that source of news."
(I can envisge some hijacking of this note to raise agendas unrelated to wikis - if so, they'll simply vanish without comment.)
