This isn't the first time The Beatles (or is it "the" Beatles?) has shown up in the press: a 2009 Telegraphstory named it as the number-two read article on Wikipedia, behind the eponymous (and often accidentally reached) wiki.
As of this writing, there were 45 comments on the Wall Street Journal story, many of them debating the capitalization point itself, while others raised the question of whether consensus on Wikipedia was a viable decision-making model. The most recommended comment opined "They argue so loud because the stakes are so low...."
The results of the RfC will be announced next week.
