Goofs

The assertion that Wikipedia rules prohibit a person or someone acting for her to edit an article about herself is false, and was false as of the date depicted (November 6, 2012). The relevant guideline merely strongly discourages it, but does not prohibit it. Wikipedia's firm policy, however, that any contested fact on a biography of a living person (which would apply to Mac's article) must be removed immediately unless it is supported by an unimpeachable source should also have applied, since presumably no such sources existed claiming that Mac attended a university she didn't actually attend.

Don Keefer: You are a member of a godless, soulless race of extortionists.
