Wikpedia Editing May Be Malign

From Little Green Footballs a brief and revealing study of who and what are involved in self serving and sometimes malicious editing of Wikpedia posts.

Although it's commonly known that various individual pranksters have turned things like biographical info on politicians or celebrities into opportunities to mock or embarrass those objects... this newly developed tool for cross referencing the IP addresses of anonymous editors to known lists of IP address provides an opportunity take a closer look at who's behind these attempts to rewrite the public book of knowledge in their own favour!
LGF Article

You can use this
Wikpedia Edit Scanner Tool to seek and expose organizations who harbour data and information vandals on the public resource!

Of particular note is the activity of News organizations Reuters and Al Jazeera!

BTW - the tool was created by CalTech computation and neural-systems graduate student Virgil Griffith !
