MP's staffer earns Wikipedia ban

MP’s staffer earns Wikipedia banA worker in an MP’s office has been banned from Wikipedia the volunteer web encyclopedia for trying to censor information about his boss. [Stuff Politics]

This is a pretty silly story. The staffer in Sam Loti Iiga’s office has been banned but he was simply correcting a blatently false paragraph.

I say false because the HoS ran an article just last week about attendence at councils and Sam’s figures were so good that he didn’t even rate a mention despite the leftwing constantly beating it up.

More to the point the people who are trying to make out Sam misses meetings are teh ones who should be banned.

That said it was pretty silly for a parliamentary staffer to make such edits, though it is likely that it was also a parliamentary staffer opposite who was making the malicious edits in the first place
