In a hilarious turn of events Congress has now been banned from making any edits on the most popular online source of information Wikipedia.
Occassionally, misinformation can be easily spread through Wikipedia due to the fact that anyone can edit the site. However, there is a system in place to track all updates made to the site and editors quickly verify, correct, or delete erroneous data that is entered.
Around 3:30 pm EST on Wednesday July, 23 some amazingly idiotic conspiracy-theory edits were made from an IP address traced back to the House of Representatives.
These Congressional Edits contained entries claiming the Cuban government faked a moon landing, a conspiracy of the lizard people – known as the Reptilians, and an edit on former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfelds page claiming he was an alien wizard!
A tweet went out from Congress’ offical twitter acount shortly thereafter:
Reptilians Wikipedia article edited anonymously from US House of Representatives
3:22 PM – 23 Jul 2014
So now Congress is in the midst of a 10 day ban instituted by Wikipedia.
Any bets on who made the edits?
