I think it is a great thing, but you can get past it by putting ?banner=none at the end of the url.

True, it's a big statement to make. Let's see how America goes when social media is directed at them.

One can always read the cached version of the page anyway, but for me it's just wow!

Ha ha ha I have a Sony Ericsson X10i and they haven't developed a ROM for it yet, so I can work around that. Laughing

But again, a bold and daring plan. Good on them.

@herpderpedia is retweeting random peoples tweets about Wikipedia being unavailable. Hilarity ensues.

Cheers,
