What would happen if someone deleted all the information on a Wikipedia page? I just realized that ANYONE can edit Wikipedia, whether they're a scholar or a four year old. What would happen if someone deleted all the information from a really long page? Would they get in trouble, and could the info be recovered? (I'm definitely not a jerk enough to try that out, but it seems like it's a bit of a dangerous setup). Just want some opinions, so yeah!

As necrodoom says, it's actually pretty hard to do permanent damage to a wiki.
