Skip to comments.Awesome: Wikipedia edit tracker shows who’s editing which pages (DNC HQ edits Rush)
Posted on 08/14/2007 11:33:30 AM PDT by james500
Theyre getting slammed with such immense traffic that its actually crippled their search function for the moment. But Im going to link anyway, first and foremost so that you can bookmark it for use later when the wave subsides and second because the Editors Picks search terms in the sidebar do work and some of them are tasty indeed. For example, select Democratic Party and itll bring up all the edits made to all Wikipedia pages from the range of IPs (allegedly) assigned to Democratic Party computers. Scroll down to the one for Rush Limbaugh and click the number in the diff column and youll see this. The pre-edit version is in the red text in the yellow box at the top and the post-edit is in the red text in the green box.
That should start you off. Ill leave you to find the other
The linked image shows someone at the IP address 188.8.131.52 edited the Rush wiki page to add insulting text. That IP address resolves to:
OrgName: Democratic National Headquarters OrgID: DNH Address: 430 S. Capitol St. SE - 2nd Floor City: Washington StateProv: DC PostalCode: 20003 Country: US
NetRange: 184.108.40.206 - 220.127.116.11 CIDR: 18.104.22.168/24 NetName: DNH
This is certainly no bombshell but it is funny to have these kinds of pranks documented as coming from DNC HQ!
Let ‘em....keeps ‘em out of real trouble. Anyone going to wiki for info about Rush is a lost cause anyway.
Lots of Moonbats argue that Wiki really isn’t a leftwingnut thingamajob ~
Democrats have a real problem with the extra chromosome crowd.
Kinda like calling in a bomb threat on your cell phone..........(a local HS kid DID THAT!)..........
You can prevent your IP address from being broadcast at Wikipedia by simply registering an account, prior to editing any pages. If you edit a Wikipedia page without an account, then your IP address is visible to pretty much everyone there (if I remember correctly).
They let most anyone edit.
I always roll my eyes when anybody cites Wikipedia as a “source”. I use it myself for trivia, but for anything where the truth is important, it’s trash.
It's good for trivia and cheating on crossword puzzles, nothing more.
What do you expect from people who literally never have grown up and moved past the stage where emotions rule their lives?
Oops! I thought that was a mirror. It’s still getting hammered.
I can believe it, crooks are stupid. Several years ago I read about an armed robbery of a convienence store. Bad guy puts a 12 pack on the counter, pulls a gun and demands the money from the register, Clerk complies but tells him she has to see some ID for the beer, he whips out his drivers license and shows it to her, she memorizes the name and address.
Like I said, crooks are stupid.
Have we observed the self edits of CBS News or ABC News or CNN news?
As an instructor for courses in international strategy, culture, and geography, I have an outright ban on all wikipedia references for research.
The moonbats have a great description of themselves listed under “Dalek Culture” -
“Daleks have little to no individual personality, ostensibly no emotions outside hatred, and a strict command structure, conditioned to obey superior orders. Dalek speech is characterised by repeated phrases, and by orders given to themselves and to others. Dalek vocal inflection suggests perpetual anger, sometimes verging on hysteria.
The fundamental feature of Dalek culture and psychology is an unquestioned belief in the superiority of the Dalek race and their default directive is to destroy all non-Dalek lifeforms. Other species are either to be exterminated immediately, or enslaved and then exterminated later once they are no longer necessary.”
Now if that doesn’t describe a leftist moonbat to a “T”, I don’t know what would.
Liberals are the product of parents that ingested too many drugs and drank excessively during pregnancy. Is it any surprise that this is how they spend their day?
The editor’s name is Winston Smith, and he works at the DNC Ministry of Truth.
Oh, so now they’re changing history.
The bastards - here’s what’s up.
Red was used to represent the CHALLENGING party, Blue, the INCUMBENT party.
This changed in 2000. I guess the networks started getting a little uncomfortable with the association of the Democrat party with Communism and the color red, and decided to leave the GOP as the Red and the Dims as Blue.
That’s rich! Rush is going to love this.
So they’re not only snide and snotty, they’re DUMB!
Looks like it links to mailsrvr.dccc.org
The Democrats color should be yellow.

Pretty much, yeah.
Hopefully someone will screen capture this, send it to appropriate Fox News entities and, well, watch the DNC try to back out of this.
If someone at the RNC did this, can you imagine how fast Schmucky Schumer and Shillery would be in front of a microphone asking the RNC to rein their people in and immediately fire the offenders.
And how many drive-by media outlets would lead with the story?
Well, here is the edited Wikipedia link:
ping to post 4
Back in the 50s, the announcers for the Cincinnati Reds started calling them the "Redlegs."
That lasted a couple of years before the team straightened them out.
Idiocy knows no political bounds.
Yeah, but is this the same kid who didn’t realize the school couldn’t legal find out the number belonged to him and gave it to the pricipal when asked?
No, the local constabularies were able to get the number traced............He wanted to get out of taking a test that day. Now, he just wants to get out............
I'd have an outright ban on THE ENTIRE INTERNET.......Make them use their BRAINS not their FINGERS...........
Pure evil, we right-wingers....
Months went by, and I went back to it, this time the Chelsea page still had the innaccurate piece of info. Only this time, the editing feature was turned off. I couldnt edit it at all. On top of that, I went to the discussion page, and all of my arguments on that page was removed while the liberals were left alone! The only way one could see my arguments is if one did a comparison of the current page, and the old page before my comments were removed. Because the editing feature was turned off, I couldnt put them back.
In other words, I want to find out who's made edits to the "Evan Dobelle" entry, but I have no idea who might have made them. Will this tool help me? I'm guessing not.
Look at the bottom of the search page. There is a field for you to specify which wiki page you want to examine.
