There’s Must Be a Lot of Wrong-Atude in Wikipedia

Keith Stattenfield, who was the lead engineer for Mac OS 9.0 and 9.1, tried three times to correct an egregious error in the Wikipedia entry for Mac OS 9, but his correction kept getting yanked.

I see now that the entry has been updated, but rather than just remove the falsehood completely, it’s been edited to say that it’s something that “some people have incorrectly claimed”, with a link to the false AppleInsider story that made the claim. If you know it’s incorrect, why mention it at all?
