Buzzfeed articles

Note that there have been two recent Buzzfeed articles about Commons and Wikipedia, by Jack Stuef, who is a writer for The Onion:

1. The Epic Battle For Wikipedia's Autofellatio Page

In the underbelly of Wikipedia is an exhibitionist subculture dedicated to one thing: Ensuring that their penis is the visual definition of penis. Meet Jiffman, one such exhibitionist. (This article is very probably NSFW.)

A shorter version of this article is also available in French: 

Autofellation: le combat d’un exhibitionniste pour illustrer la page de Wikipedia

2. Wikipedia's Kiddie Porn Problem

A shorter summary of this story is also on Gizmodo:

Why Is It So Hard to Get Kiddie Porn Off of Wikipedia?
