Awesome: Wikipedia edit tracker shows who’s editing which pages (DNC HQ edits Rush)
HotAir ^ | 1:34 pm on August 14, 2007 | Allahpundit

They’re getting slammed with such immense traffic that it’s actually crippled their search function for the moment. But I’m going to link anyway, first and foremost so that you can bookmark it for use later when the wave subsides and second because the “Editor’s Picks” search terms in the sidebar do work — and some of them are tasty indeed. For example, select “Democratic Party” and it’ll 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 you’ll 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. I’ll leave you to find the other


TOPICS: Culture/Society; News/Current Events; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: dean; democrats; dnc; dncstrategy; dnh; rushlimbaugh; wikipedia

The linked image shows someone at the IP address 192.43.248.17 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: 192.43.248.0 - 192.43.248.255 CIDR: 192.43.248.0/24 NetName: DNH

This is certainly no bombshell but it is funny to have these kinds of pranks documented as coming from DNC HQ!

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).

Speaking of Reuters, I have a hunch that there's going to be several MSM IP addresses found to be responsible for malicious editing. It just seems like their kinda thing.

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.

The moonbats have a great description of themselves listed under “Dalek Culture” -

“Daleks have little to no individual personality,[10] ostensibly no emotions outside hatred,[3] and a strict command structure, conditioned to obey superior orders.[74] 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[74] and their default directive is to destroy all non-Dalek lifeforms.[3] 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.

Someone is also busy editing the electoral map colors of pre-2000 election results. Per the National Atlas maps, they show one color, but this editor has taken the liberty to change the colors: 1996 U.S. Presidential Election

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.

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?

I guess the networks started getting a little uncomfortable with the association of the Democrat party with Communism and the color red,

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.

An innaccurate piece on Rush was put on Chelsea Clinton's wiki page. I removed it, and cited on the discussion page my reasons for removing it. Some lib put it back. I removed it again, it was put back, etc. I had a few debates with liberals on the discussion page as to why and how it was wrong info. I finally gave up and let the innaccurate piece stand, knowing that any liberal who saw it, and quoted it thinking it true, I would be able to trounce in an argument.

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.

I checked out the site. Very interesting tool! Maybe you can give me a little guidance though --- it's my understanding that before you can do a search on "topic A", you also have to supply an IP address or source's city for the potential person who made the edit?

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.
