Murdo MacLeod on Wikiscanner

THEY are the Wikipedia timewasters, anonymous cyber-vandals who use one of the internet's greatest resources to abuse rivals, spread gossip and cause widespread confusion.

Click the link above for the Scotsman article.

Interesting to note that the Scotsman hacks are pretty well-behaved in this regard (try wikiscanner yourself - the relevant IP address range is 194.61.49.0-255). Even here you can find vandalism at work: "The Heart of Madlithuanian" edit to Heart of Midlothian F.C. entry, on 10 January 2006, is a case in point. Other edits show that the Scotsman is as concerned as other organisations to ensure that Wikipedia toes the party line (in this case, the party line is "No political allegiance").
