I just tried to find University of East Anglia researcher Keith Briffa on Wikipedia, and he was no where to be found! The following cached page was available through Yahoo: (withdrawn/not found)
It sugests that he must have been removed because of his association with ClimateGate. Apparently Wikipedia does not want to make it easy to research the principle players in this scandal and learn the details of their involvement.
It is a scandal in itself when a supposedly neutral reference is so deliberately obstructive and biased.
