The boss of the Wikipedia charity who found himself at the centre of a bizarre porn photo and editing scandal has resigned from Wikimedia UK, to help smooth over the cracks opening up within the Wiki world.

Ashley van Haeften, the chairman of Wikimedia UK, had previously been banned from editing Wiki entries due to a series of "personal attacks" he'd been found to have launched on those who criticised his posting of porn images to the site, including the big faux pas of adding a sex pic to the listing of a living person.
