War over bladderball extends to Wikipedia

Moments after students ripped the six-foot bladderball to technicolor shreds, the contest continued — on Wikipedia.

Starting at 4:42 p.m., several anonymous users combined to change the site’s “bladderball” entry over 150 times, claiming victory for their own residential colleges and blaming Jonathan Edwards College for sucking, i.e., destroying the ball.

The edit war ceased at 5:51 p.m., though, when a Norwegian administrator banned the anonymous changes, citing “excessive vandalism.”
