please keep an eye on [[Cheryl Cole]]

See talk page. Someone sent the URL for a somewhat libelous rev to
various newspapers - I've had two calls today about the same revision.
I think I explained matters okay.

Note that I did *not* delete the rev in question, but obviously if the
WMF was asked to it'd get zapped. It was vandalism that lasted two
minutes total, and I hope it'll help educate journalists as to how
Wikipedia works.

(I think I've managed to turn "Wikipedia is not reliable" into a
positive phrase for press use ;-)
