Well, maybe it just me, I don't know the rules to wrile articles on Wikipedia and I always thought that articles on Wikipedia should not contain any kind of swearing.
Try:
http://en.wikipedia....u_(Dragon_Ball) 4th paragraph.

The power of Wikipedia, its already restored.
For any change you need a good source or big chance it gets reverted.

I don't have an account to modify articles on Wikipedia. And now that I'm thinking about it, I've never seen a "report" button on any article.

You don't need to "report" it to anybody, you can do it yourself. That's why there is no report button. On the "View History" tab on the page, you can see all revisions of it. Find the offending revision, (most likely the latest one) and click undo next to the revision.

Wikipedia can never be taken seriously until they implement even a basic document review process. Everything goes straight from edit to production.
