…And We Can’t Have That

CBS – The website Encyclopedia Dramatica has been targeted by the Australian Human Rights Commission, a government agency, for containing racist content.

In January, Google Australia pulled down links to an article on Australian Aborigines contained on the site at the government’s request, and now the commission may file charges against the site’s American owner.

For the unfamiliar, Encyclopedia Dramatica is like Wikipedia, except instead of striving for a neutral point-of-view, contributors aim for an offensive and adolescent one.
