  • Thanks for this heads-up. I noticed an instance of this trolling on the Wikipedia article on Abdul Rahman, who, as Wikipedia notes, is “an Afghan citizen who was arrested in February 2006 and threatened with the death penalty for converting to Christianity.” This trolling has been removed from the article.
