Compromised page: NPA Theory

Year: 2007

Wikipedia has a strict rule against what it calls "vanity entries": articles created by a person or company about said person or company. It was on those grounds it decided to delete a page on NPA Theory, a theory developed by Dr. Anthony Benis which states human personalities consist of three traits: narcissism, perfectionism, and aggression. Wiki also has guidelines for academic notability which Banis's Theory didn't fit. Our problem, however, comes with the fact that Wiki deleted the entry all together. As Ars Technica pointed out years ago, Wikipedia is filled with trivial articles on topics that range from long-forgotten video games to TV shows that only had a pilot air.
