What makes for a controversial topic on Wikipedia.org, the online encyclopedia that anybody can edit?

A controversial topic will see footnotes and citations multiply as people fight for every word and phrase. The more footnotes there are, the more the controversy. Here are ten of the most controversial topics on Wikipedia as measured by footnote numbers gathered in Nov. 2010.
