If this medium is catered for professionals, any harmful attacks and unwelcomed changes is not tolerated. I suggest that policies should be placed somewhere out there in this website to avoid such childish acts.

exactly, that's why this open authoring may not be such a good idea although it is quite a valuable means of learning from other educators and experienced teachers and of course for students also

Manipulation of information is more a concern with us than harmful entries.

I guess it all comes down to ethics and morals. One way of tracking this if it happens is that, theres the username of the person causing such dangers and immediate action should be taken.
