Wikipedia Arbitration

Wikipedia: Requests for arbitration/Fringe Science(cc)2006aaevp-concerns_with_wikipedia

Wikipedia is capable of policing itself by way of basic rules and a hierarchy of editors. It is a tedious, time consuming process, but issues, complaints and suggestions can be brought to administrators and may eventually become arbitration cases. Particularly contentious relationships between editors may result in discipline and/or warnings which can have lasting effect. Policy and statements of intent may come form such cases, and while rule setting articles may be gradually altered by editors, arbitration decisions a more lasting. The problem is that arbitration pages are difficult to find and decisions are often lost do to their virtual invisibility.

This is the arbitration record concerning a 2009 Fringe Science decision.

Note that Editor Martinphi was eventually banned due to continued skirmishes with ScienceApologist who is now User: Joshua P. Schroeder. Schroeder has also been permanently blocked from editing Wikipedia. In all probability, he is now editing under a different name.
