German politician, former Stasi employee forbids use of wikipedia.de domain

“A German Member of parliament for a left-wing party, Lutz Heilmann, has obtained a preliminary injunction against […] Wikimedia Deutschland e.V., forbidding the forwarding of the popular http://wikipedia.de to the proper http://de.wikipedia.org. Apparently Heilmann is not happy with the fact that his Wikipedia article (English version) contains information on his work for the former GDR Stasi, the much-hated internal secret service.”

Relying on country specific Tld’s controlled by governments while clowns, shit eaters and torturers like Lutz Heilmann are running loose in parliament is a bad idea.
