Wikipedia blocks US Congress IP address
Wikipedia blocks United States Congress IP addresses due to rampant vandalism by Hill staffers. [CNET]
The statement of dispute from Wikipedia's Request for Comment [RFC] page on the dispute surrounding the United States Congress entry:
This [Request for Comment] is being opened in order to further a centralized discussion concerning actions to be taken against US Congressional staffers and possibly other federal employees who have engaged in unethical and possibly libelous behavior in violation of Wikipedia policies (WP:[Neutral Point of View], WP:[Civility]). The editors from these IP ranges have been rude, abrasive, immature, and show disregard for Wikipedia policy. The editors have frequently tried to censor the history of elected officials, often replacing community articles with censored biographies despite other users' attempts to dispute these violations. They also violate Wikipedia:Verifiability, by deleting verified reports, while adding flattering things about members of Congress that are unverified. The offending editors have been blocked. This RFC is needed to gather community comments. It is proposed that a one week block is not enough.
