Sabotage of the Danville Wikipedia Page

Postby curt » Mon Jul 20, 2009 7:11 pm

The Danville Wikipedia Page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danville,_New_Hampshire

From the History of changes to the page:

Removal of links associated with Rob Collins (SpeakoutDanville, Danville PTA, Danville Dads)
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?tit ... =217664543

Moving of overt Danville Delivery link to be above the link to the town web site, and changing the purported link to the town web site to point actually at Danville Delivery
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?tit ... =278981714
An administrator pushed the DD link back below the purported ToD link, but s/he did not catch that the ToD link had been sabotaged.

Disparaging and undocumented comments about the area south of 111, including allegations of gang activity and meth labs:
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?tit ... =279138338
An administrator removed these comments as "uncited".

---------------------
Shortly after posting the above, I fixed the ToD link and restored the SoD link.

Rob, I leave it up to you to restore PTA and Danville Dads links. I have a login, so would be happy to do it for you.

The ip address is Fairpoint.

It's pretty funny to see that "whoever" altered the links also has an affinity for the "Doctor Who" show!?!? They also seem to know an awful lot about it....

There was another long-running attempt to override the town's page several months earlier; it's nice to have additional people keeping an eye out. --Ken Gallager
