Eye Online Breaking Story: Wikipedophillia History Quietly Being Expunged.

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.

While this is sure to be represented as a response to the public's sensitivity about such subjects, the question can not help but be asked: Is Wikipedia rapidly trying to destroy the evidence of years of "pedophile trolling" and "pedophile activism" in its pages? 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:

Man-Boy Love Advocate Accused of Using Wikipedia

Virtual Grub Street's most recent Wikipedia article — Man-Boy Love Advocate Accused of Using Wikipedia to Troll for Interested Parties — has just been posted at its Eye Online blog (RSS):

Man-Boy Love Advocate Accused of Using Wikipedia to Troll for Interested Parties (March 4, 2007). 'When Rookiee was banned by an admin with the excuse of "pedophile trolling" during the controversy over the Justin Berry article, there was extensive discussion at that time, and consensus was reached that banning people from editing Wikipedia because of their sexuality was inappropriate, and his ban was revoked. Rookiee's user page wasn't even an issue during that discussion, and I don't recall anyone having problems with it.'

This and other recent Wikipedia articles, from around the web, have been added to the "Recent Wikipedia / Wikitruth Coverage" pages, also posted at its Eye Online blog (RSS).
