[Wikimedia-l] Of Wikipedia, fonts, and Pakistan

Pax Ahimsa Gethen
Today's article in the Guardian [1] is one of many on "Fontgate",
regarding the date Microsoft's "Calibri" font [2]  became available and
its relevance to allegations of corruption in Pakistan. The author of
the article doesn't seem aware that the "company" Wikipedia doesn't
decide when pages are protected, nor under what circumstances protection
is applied.
