Your statement about there being many online encyclopedias is a fair one, but they are all services that provide the same product.
I don't think you covered that argument in you post, much less proved it to be invalid.
"All the information you'll ever need."
Actually, now that I look at it, the shirt seems to be advertizing the information (the product), not the encyclopedia itself.
It does say that an online encyclopedia is a way to obtain the said information, but it just looks to me that it is advertizing and describing the information that you will get when using this online encyclopedia (fast, east, mostly true).
(Sorry, I would have thought of something to argue against your post earlier, but for some reason I thought that you were arguing for keeping the shirt. )
I still strongly urge moderators to change their ruling on this shirt even though they don't do this often (or ever as of yet).
