Word meets resistance

'Extravolution' is now getting a hard time on Wiktionary. Now it's even being called a 'protologism'. A word which has existed since 1829 can't be a protologism. My definition of it is certainly new but then so is the phenomenon it now describes. Shall we call it a neologistic nonce word? It is what it is.

I know. Information is not knowledge. Knowledge is of value while information is constantly destroyed. But how does one make knowledge?
