Another caught with their hands in the wikipedia jar

The modern day cover up is too easily exposed, because you cant ever really delete anything from Wikipedia.

You can't hide that easily.

Today’s Wikipedia catch is Tom Waterhouse.

In February Fairfax reported that Occupy Melbourne’s official Wikipedia page was edited twice by a person using a City of Melbourne computer to remove contentious words in the lead-up to the re-election of lord mayor Robert Doyle last year.

However we would like to be recognized as the original source of MCC Occupy Melbourne edits story rather than the oblique ( self ) reference to Fairfax media.

We released it to BoingBoing, where The Age (Fairfax Media) picked it up.

The original story is here:

But the question remains what happened to Richard Fosters Melbourne City Council internal investigation into who made the edits?

It’s now almost 3 months later and still no answers.

Richard Foster MCC councillor . Just days after the Editgate cyber war story story (of MCC IP addresses being used to edit out the word peaceful from Occupy Melbourne Wikipedia page) Richard Foster promised and internal investigation. Almost 3 months have passed and still there is no information about what happened.

Clearly none of these people have heard about the Streisand effect.
