Wikipedia is asking its customers to weigh in on the platform’s article discussing mass killings below Communist regimes.
The article discusses mass killings perpetrated by communist regimes all through the twentieth century, together with the Soviet Union, China, and Cambodia.
Two warnings seem on the article, one asking for feedback on the potential deletion of the article and one noting that the article could also be biased or unverifiable.
Based on Wikipedia’s deletion coverage, customers are inspired to “clarify their opinion” on whether or not the article needs to be deleted.
A second warning said the article has “a number of points.”
Wikipedia said the “neutrality of the article is disputed” and that the “verifiability of the claims made on this article is disputed.”
Conservatives on Twitter had been fast to slam the net encyclopedia for contemplating deleting an article that tells the reality concerning the horrors dedicated by communist regimes.
“If @Wikipedia will get away with this, there’ll certainly be makes an attempt to delete pages involving the Armenian genocide, the Holocaust, and plenty of different mass atrocities,” he added. “This slippery slope can’t stand.”
“@Wikipedia this ends my donation to you,” one other consumer tweeted.
