So I recently found out about the wikiscanner version 2.
Most of my work so far has been uncovering sockpuppets and dishonesty within the cabal, but I also spent a little while checking up on some other
The results of my research led me to one troublesome entry in particular:
(ATS breaking the link as ever, try this one /cmhe95)
In that diff, it appears that the IP 18.104.22.168 added the home address of a racist girl group.
The IP is listed by whois as belonging to the ADL. That appears to be the only change to wikipedia from ADL. I also ran checks on other IPs in their
block, but nothing more was found.
From the IP user page, you can run the whois yourself.
(ATS Broken link as ever, try this one /ddk2n8)
CustName: Anti Defamation League
Address: 600 Stewart St
There is only one issue with this data that stops me making an all out accusation against the ADL. The modification to wikipedia came on aug 28 2006.
The whois lists the ADL as registering their block in 2007. However, this could be a renewal, and the topic they chose to edit makes it very
suspicious. If anyone has access to older registration information to verify it was really the ADL, that would be great.
I do not support the racist girl band, but I believe strongly in freedom of speech, even when I hate the way these people use it. I also support the
right of people to not be harassed in their own home. In general I would support the aims of the ADL, if only they didn't keep doing it wrong.
It looks like the ADL doesn't support this right themselves, they are happy to publish their enemies home address on the internet, I guess hoping
someone will attack them, or at least send them some pizzas/taxis.
Pretty disgusting behaviour if you ask me, especially as the girls were only about 14 years old at the time, it's probably a crime.
I tried to get this information out through the alternative media, but none of them want to touch it. I can't say I blame them, it would seem a
little rough to take the side of the racists in this matter, but the ADL doesn't get a free pass just because their enemies aren't very
