Campaigners spend lunch break on wikipages?

Why are people so snobby about Wikipedia when some of them take pains to edit its contents? I am not saying that the same folk who edit the Wiki pages are the ones looking down on the pages. But I would love to see where the two circles merge.

Story goes - Staffs for US presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama caught making questionable edits to Wikipedia

Other than stating outright that some people must have pretty empty lives to put up petty comments, I must add that it is quite interesting to see authority figures trying hard to embrace new media ... and failing quite horribly.

Hooray for WikiScanner.
