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?
