Bias: Wikipedia and Uncommon Descent

At Uncommon Descent, DaveScot complains about the perceived bias and censorship at Uncommon Descent. Some of us who are sceptical about "Intelligent Design" as a scientific endeavour would like to point out the irony of complaining about censorship whilst operating the most draconian banning and deletion policy ever seen on the Internet.

Link spamming & involved parties
Wikipedia is not: "Mere collections of external links or Internet directories. There is nothing wrong with adding one or more useful content-relevant links to an article; however, excessive lists can dwarf articles and detract from the purpose of Wikipedia."

Truthologist added an excessive number of links to DI material: [28] He then restored it when Jimsch62 rejected it as link spam: [29] 216.163.84.151 (talk • contribs) restored the links in the form of links to archives/search results: [30] user:216.163.84.151's IP just happens to be that of the Discovery Institute.

Ever seen? Surely not.

Though granted, DaveScot delights in kicking to the curb anyone who crosses some arbitrary line. I deliberately left in order to deny him the pleasure of banning me.
