Wikipedia just got a lot more social

Wikipedians wage war over a capital “I” in a “Star Trek” film

When it comes to world class pedantry, few groups can challenge the prowess of Wikipedians and Star Trek fans. So when the two come together it’s little surprise they create a swirling maelstrom of anal retention from which no common sense can escape.

Case in point: The Wikipedia talk page for the new movie Star Trek Into Darkness. There, Wikipedians and Wikipedia Star Trek fans have engaged in a heated conflict that’s raged for nearly two months. More than 40,000 words have been lobbed from either side. Earlier today, the debate was even the subject of a mocking cartoon at the popular Web comic XKCD.

The point of contention? Whether “Into” should be capitalized in the movie’s name.
