The US-based owner of a satirical Wikipedia-style website may be charged
under Australian law over a deliberately offensive article about Aborigines.

The Australian Human Rights and Equal Opportunities Commission (HREOC)
contacted Encyclopedia Dramatica owner Joseph Evers, after 20 indigenous
Australians complained about the article's content. 

Earlier this year the same article - which includes numerous offensive
depictions of Aborigines - was removed from Google's search listings after a
request from the Human Rights Commission
