Well the Wikipedia page is sufficiently referenced, though an argument could perhaps(???) be made that it violates NPOV (neutral point of view), though to call it a "hate page" is stretching it a bit. If there are negative facts already published about you, then repeating these on Wikipedia is perfectly fine, or else the Nixon article wouldn't mention Watergate, etc.!

Andy, thanks for your post here about Wikipedia.
Our good mate Wolfgang Wuster has spent several years creating a "hate page" about me on Wikipedia and has even gone so far as to put a robot on it to prevent corrections to be made.
As the material within it is either false in totality, or written in such a way as to convey a message totally opposite to the factual reality, it breaches Wikipedia rules.
Therefore please REMOVE the page for "Raymond Hoser" immediately.
Also you may care to look at Wuster's latest attempts to kill the entire zoological rules and code here:
