The massive amount of anonymous entries on the anybody-can-edit online encyclopedia we all know and love called Wikipedia, isn’t so anonymous anymore.
Enter the name of any Organization or Government entity, and you’re only a few clicks away from the once-was anonymous edit world, created via the IP address of those very Organizations or Government entities, throughout all of Wikipedia.
There is a firestorm of data available. The contributors, their agenda(s), organizations embellishing their data, politicians attacking their competitors, blatant misinformation, all exposed.
Here are three examples of some recent finds:
- where an IP from State Farm Insurance deletes all references to Katrina lawsuits and the related evidence.
- Monsanto themselves edited the wiki page for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.
- Their edit was to add milk to the aggravating factors:
“Avoid milk and heavily milk based products”
Peculiar since Monsanto has vested interest in milk.
Would be interesting to know who exactly at Monsanto typed in that factual edit.
