According to Slashdot (link above), quoting to the Guardian, a group of disaffected Wikipedians is reposting all removed articles. Jimbo Wales and a small group of other Wikipedia "gods" had ruled that these articles had to be removed. These Wikipedians felt this amounted to censorship and are reposting them to websites. See the article, which has already garnered more than 230 comments (of varying quality!) in five hours.
