Wikipedia lament, part two
I seem to have more or less overcome the urge to visit and/or use Wikipedia. Had to log on just a couple of days ago to remove the e-mail address from the profile which I was told was deleted. I was still getting unwanted e-mails! Sent an e-mail of my own to the site's owners requesting total obliteration of my account.
Haven't heard back. Account's still there.
For your amusement, a couple of recent entries. Our first is apparently from a college student at Barnfield College, wherever that is. Dude's been posting since February. His latest, about-to-be-obliterated "entry" consists entirely of the following (quotes mine):
"Barnfield College Computing and Information Technology"
That's it. Not even a period.
Another vandalism "article" about somone named Victoria Beales:
Or the guy posting lots and lots of articles on little towns in Colombia. An example:
"Puerto Asís is a town and municipality located in the Putumayo Department, Republic of Colombia."
He's done about a dozen of these.
My favorite thus far is about Adalbert II, Count of Ballenstedt:
"Adalbert II, Count of Ballenstedt, is an ancestor of Queen Elizabeth II."
See what you learn when you use the internet?
