And yes, you did force an effective redirect, because you renamed "BeagleBone" to "BeagleBone Community" and [[BeagleBone]] now points to your master portal page.  And it sticks out like a sore thumb, because the portal page isn't even about BeagleBone --- it should be renamed "BeagleBone Sites".  Wiki pages names describe objects, and your portal does not.

Yes, I bet there is a desire by all corporations to control community activity, but that is absolutely not the wiki way. This wiki has nothing to do with you in a corporate sense, it's a community wiki and not a BeagleBoard.org wiki. You have hijacked for purposes of company control something that you have no inherent right to control as a company.

And yes, you did force an effective redirect, because you renamed "BeagleBone" to "BeagleBone Community" and BeagleBone now points to your master portal page. And it sticks out like a sore thumb, because the portal page isn't even about BeagleBone --- it should be renamed "BeagleBone Sites". Wiki pages names describe objects, and your portal does not.
