Shakespeare authorship question (nom); concerning the argument that someone other than William Shakespeare of Stratford-upon-Avon wrote the works traditionally attributed to him, considered a fringe belief by most scholars and historians.

A blog dedicated to alternative theories protested against the FA promotion, claiming it was "effectively closing the page to any further edits for a year" and represented "inaccurate and unjustified bias against all discussion of the Shakepseare [sic] authorship question". (Tom Reedy, Paul Barlow, Nishidani and Xover)
