62895543 story Wikipedia Blocks 'Disruptive' Edits From US Congress 165 Posted by Soulskill on Friday July 25, 2014 @11:40AM from the history-no-longer-written-by-the-victors dept. alphatel writes: Wikipedia has blocked anonymous edits from a congressional IP address for 10 days because of "disruptive" behavior. These otherwise anonymous edits were brought to light recently by @Congressedits, a bot that automatically tweets Wikipedia changes that come from Congressional IP addresses. The biography of former U.S. defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld was edited to say that he was an "alien lizard who eats Mexican babies." Mediaite's Wikipedia page was modified to label the site as a "sexist transphobic" publication.
