@JoshC I just spent quite a while compiling an answer to that question without noticing it was CW, and now I'll never get my precious rep. Sniff. –  Mark Amery Oct 14 '13 at 21:45

We all knew it would happen eventually @JoshC. –  Yannis Oct 14 '13 at 21:47
    
@JoshC In case you haven't noticed, the, uh, 'edit' that was made to the question is also somewhat suspect. I suspect that's the result of a tag merge subsequent to the edit, though? –  Mark Amery Oct 14 '13 at 21:48

It appears that long, long ago when a user ticked the "community wiki" checkbox on their post (which can no longer be done for questions), it just got attributed to the Community user rather than listing their name for it (or maybe they didn't get recorded at the time and are just now getting attributed to Community). This is also demonstrated by this community wiki question which was made community wiki by the author the moment it was created.
