Critics have slammed Wikipedia, the crowdsourced online encyclopedia, saying its lack of professional editors makes it an unreliable source.

Well, that’s true when Congress gets involved.

It seems our hardworking representative(s) and/or their hardworking staffer(s) devoted time, on the public dime, to altering Wikipedia pages to accuse the Cuban government of faking the moon landings (when everyone knows it was the U.S. government that did that), and to name Donald Rumsfeld as an alien wizard.

It seems that those edits were the final straw for Wikipedia’s administrators, who implemented a 10-day ban on any changes coming from one particular IP address within the US Congress, “due to disruptive editing originating from that address”.

Don’t expect a Congressional investigation into this misuse of public funds, because…

a) It’s Congress, and

b) there’s no physical evidence, because government hard-drives never survive these sorts of incidents.

And stop laughing at us, Great Britain. Your MPs have been caught doing the same…a lot.

"Well, that’s true. FULL STOP."

There, I fixed it for you.

Wikipedia is '60s hippy philosophy masquerading as knowledge.

If there's a pool, I'll pick "Office of the Senate Majority Leader."

Note that "one IP address" does not mean one computer. Could be a proxy or switch that serves an entire office or group of offices.
