That threat's abolutely ridiculous. Get caught graffiti-ing and you get a warning and a record …

My personal favourite Wiki is Wookiepedia … for no reason other than the name. :)

The mediocre one
Check the gray box at the top of their main page.

Yes, but they're twisting the law to their means. Nowhere in the law does it say anything about 10 years in prison (they made that number up, because the law does state something about ‘years equal to damanges’ ) and it mainly concerns the stealing of private financial information from other individuals, as well as stealing information that could be used against the US Government, as specified:
1) having knowingly accessed a computer without authorization or exceeding authorized access, and by means of such conduct having obtained information that has been determined by the United States Government pursuant to an Executive order or statute to require protection against unauthorized disclosure for reasons of national defense or foreign relations, or any restricted data, as defined in paragraph y. of section 11 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 , with reason to believe that such information so obtained could be used to the injury of the United States, or to the advantage of any foreign nation willfully communicates, delivers, transmits, or causes to be communicated, delivered, or transmitted, or attempts to communicate, deliver, transmit or cause to be communicated, delivered, or transmitted the same to any person not entitled to receive it, or willfully retains the same and fails to deliver it to the officer or employee of the United States entitled to receive it;…

Basically they're taking some law that has to do with people stealing actual important (the law is specifically designed to guard again fraud, especially the kind of fraud that could be used again the US) and using it to guard against…vandalism on a crappy Wiki?

Anyway this site just depresses me because it's authors are idiots who feel that America is at the center of the universe. They have something on there about how Wikipedia is baised because it's too liberal, and that goes against America, when in actuality there are more liberal people in the world than conservatives, so it makes sense that there would be that kind of bias on a Wiki that covers the ENTIRE world.

God I hate conservative America.

Heh, Wikipedia doesn't have a “Liberal Bias”, but Conservapedia does have an American right wing conservative bias. ;)
I think the trouble is that these Conservapedia nitwits have a rudimentary understanding of the world. To start with what they don't realise is that “liberalism” in the context of Wikipedia means accepting all views (right, left, in, up, down, inside out, whatever), while their Conservapedia only accepts one view.
