Three Cheers for Wiki!

"...The Internet encyclopedia database Wikipedia has announced its refusal to remove photos of the Muslim prophet Mohammed, defying the demands of more than 180,000 people who cry foul at any depiction of the prophet.

An online protest called for the website to take down images of relics from the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries, all of which depicting the Islam prophet. The main argument was that the religion strictly and vehemently prohibits any depiction or representation of Mohammed.

Wikipedia replied to the cries by saying that the photos will not be taken down, and that those offended by their public display will merely have to adjust their computer settings to conceal the offending photographs..." (source)

Finally, someone that didn't cave!
And shame on those of you who denounce Wikipedia as unreliable...*I* am a reference on the Zombietime page!!! LOL
