Wikipedia featured article

Oh bravo Wikipedia, well done. Today’s Wikipedia featured article (found highlighted on the front page) is Gropecunt Lane.

Wikipedia's featured article 9/7/2009

That should do wonders to help convince doubters that Wikipedia is an authoritative resource able to be used by everyone, particularly families and those behind company firewalls with over-zealous administrators.

Now, I’m no prude, and I don’t think the article should be excised from Wikipedia or even censored. But I do think that if you want your product to be mainstream, you probably need to keep what is generally considered the single most profane word in the English language off the front page.
