Borat sparks vandalism in Kazakhstan's Wikipedia entry

The editors of the English version of Wikipedia had to limit the possibility of editing the article about Kazakhstan due to the acts of vandalism that it suffered, since the opening of the film Borat's Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. In some of those vandalised editions Borat was described as the president of Kazakhstan. Still, most of Wikipedia’s more than 1,471,000 articles are accurate, but issues of vandalism and inaccuracy always give arguments to those who despise it as not being a serious source of information.
