While I know some people have a basic distrust of all Wikipedia content
due to its anonymous authorship, "uncoordinated actions" seems excessive
here. This is not a matter of a million monkeys sitting at keyboards.
The facts are undisputed -- the character in question is in ARMSCII, and
is not in Unicode -- regardless of who is reporting them or what
position of authority they do or don't hold.
