Wikipedia "edit wars"

Beware of Wikipedia discussions on controversial topics.
Articles about ex-US President George W Bush and anarchism are the most hotly contested on Wikipedia's English-language edition, research suggests. 
Scientists analysed page edits in 10 editions to find topics fought over by contributors to the open encyclopaedia. . . .
Researchers from the University of Oxford and three other institutions analysed logs of the changes made to Wikipedia pages to identify those in the throes of an "edit war". Such a conflict involves editors of pages making changes that are almost instantly undone by another editor. . . .
