On March 4, 2007, Eye Online posted the article Man-Boy Love Advocate Accused of Using Wikipedia to Troll for Interested Parties. Virtual Grub Street has just discovered that, since the article appeared, Wikipedia Administrators have bypassed the entire Wikipedia editing system and have begun deleting/removing a large number of the online encyclopedia's User and Discussion pages containing pedophilia themes.

Much of it with the knowledge of its Administrators? With this question in mind, VGS has begun downloading the Google caches for these pages. No time to waste. Even one of the caches pages has now gone blank. Stay tuned for further reports.
The following are two example pages:
