    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.
