A recent article in a Russian computer magazine has been translated into English: Spies in Wikipedia

Thanks, Daniel...this perfectly mirrors the behavior of some of the trolls on

this forum whose profuse messages border on the profligate.

QUOTE:

"Whenever the work of intelligence services is punctured, the most important information for analysis appears in the first days and hours after the event. Those who know something inadvertently reveal superfluous information, while those who are directly involved are either keeping silent, or refute everything through quick and flagrant misinformation. In the case of Linda Mack, it is impossible to determine who knew what in the upper echelon of Wikipedia, but their reaction fits all the characteristics of espionage leaks.

SlimVirgin slipped into a state of unconsciousness and has not shown any signs of life for thirty hours. This is very unusual, because she is known as an administrator with inhuman capacity for work. Over the past year, she edited nearly 35,000 articles (about 100 every day, without holidays and weekends). The same SlimVirgin also holds a record of continuous editorial work lasting 26 hours, with the longest break in editing not exceeding 40 minutes. These statistics from Wikipedia's editing records suggests either a supernatural ability, or more likely that SlimVirgin is a convenient smoke screen for an entire team of specialists editing Wikipedia articles on behalf of intelligence services.

When I made a posting recently regarding the activities of a certain

forum member whose supernatural ability in posting profuse messages

rivaled SlimVirgin, it was removed as being an attack on the person and I

was admonished. All I was doing was reporting a study I had made, but

unfortunately I did not keep statistics of the study. Likely this posting

will suffer the same fate...as being "off-topic" by the censor.
