Psychic Fails to Foresee Losing Battle With WikiPedia

A self-proclaimed psychic ran into trouble when he tried to write his own entry on Wikipedia.

From Slashdot:

Unable to accept that Wikipedia's policy of presenting a Neutral Point of View means that an article on Sollog would have to include both pro- and anti-Sollog material, and unable to force other Wikipedia editors to accept his version of reality, Ennis has taken instead to making hostile phone calls to Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales at his home, and setting up his very own Wikipedia and Wales hate site.

Sollog's current Wikipedia entry is quite different from the original entry. Due to the controversy and resulting dispute, I had to look in the revision history to find a typical neutral entry.
