Wikipedia Vandals besides Tim Buckley

Thought this was interesting, although everyone and their mother knows of it, wikiscanner is a tool to search I.P addresses that frequent the editing practices of wikipedia. It's been fun searching other IP addresses and their maw of crap.

I thought this was a fitting beginning post for the thread so that way people could share other "hilarious" edits by other IP addresses.


Quoted from a forum post at halfpixel.com:


This is so great.

A fan sent me a condolences gift yesterday to try to lift me up. Boy did it ever. Apparantly there is a site called Wikiscanner, where you can look up someone's IP address, enter it into the site and it will show you every Wiki entry and edit they have ever made.

This fan had an email from Tim Buckley and used his IP address to wiki-search him.

http://wikiscanner.virgil.gr/list_edits.php?ip1=68.60.213.27&ip2=&ip3=&ip4=#

My favorite: Tim deleted the enitre wiki entry for PvP and replaced it with "pvp sucks."

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=prev&oldid=32072999

If you look, you'll see that at various points, Tim vandalized his own page anonymously, then posed as CAD fans admonishing the vandalism. This was like Christmas, and my birthday all rolled into one email.

Dear fan who wished to remain anonymous. One thing Mike Wieringo LOVED to do with me was gossip like a fucking bored housewife. He would have FUCKING LOVED THIS SHIT!

Thank you for this. It made a difficult day better.

Any other noticeable people doing thw wikipedia walk? Post away.

    Someone edited the page of a local DJ to say he "should have been a handjob or an abortion because he is a cunt."

    It stayed like that for a while.

    If you want to get into semantics, that other post to which you referred mentioned nothing about post count. There was nothing unkind about it at all. In point of fact, I was being polite and letting that particular poster know that, given the general demeanor and history of this forum, she should be aware that people may want to flame her. If you took it to be some kind of mean comment, I can't help how you interpret it, but there was no maliciousness intended there at all. And I don't really think most people would see it as if it did.

    "Pennard is also the home of Mikey, Drew, Adam, Dave and Nic, possibly the only people in Pennard worth mentioning."

    This is the only text I see in that link:

    Pennard is the name of an electoral ward, a community and a village in the City and County of Swansea, South Wales.

    The electoral ward consists of some or all of the following areas: Bishopston, Fairwood Common, Kittle, Parkmill, Pennard and Southgate, in the parliamentary constituency of Gower. The village of Pennard is located about 7 miles south west of Swansea City Centre.

    Part of Three Cliffs Bay falls within the ward.

    You were being patronising and shitting in the thread, under a veneer of "hey I am a cool guy being cool" you were saying "your thread is shitty and you are shit". Just keep it under wraps. No one wants to hear your opinion on thread quality. Ever.
