Well, there are many mechanisms to choose from, some of which are already implemented on Wikipedia. There are many commercial and political interests in the biggest and most popular online encyclopedia, so this search venture is not that very different in that sense.

The real answer, I guess, is that you can't control it for all cases, but you can be sure that the most popular terms will have enough eyes on them to be safe from it.

She contacted one of the speakers, who claims he hasn't been able to achieve anything more than crashing the browser. According to Snyder, the investigation continues."
