Inbev controls its wikipedia pages and 'corrects' them

proof

212.8.174.0-255Inbev-Antwerp, Antwerpen, Belgium3200

http://wikiscanner.virgil.gr/name2ip.php?orgname=Inbev

 Changes  http://wikiscanner.virgil.gr/f.php?ip1=212.8.174.0-255 (the best one is the last one...)

The contact seems also very interested in the Global panel foundation a somewhat very political surely not progressive foundation http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=prev&oldid=1... which advertises on wikipedia (in wikipedia's own words) and the praque association for international cooperation which is connected to this Panel http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=prev&oldid=1...

what concerns Inbev itself it has its own pages under very close scrutiny correcting mistakes or adding stuff and maybe it is also the explanation that you won't find much about the restructurering, the social unrest and so on

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=prev&oldid=1... is an example which seems to present it as very well corporate governed. 

But it are the Stella Artoispages that are anecdoctical. Before it was written that wife beater is "([[Great Britain]] and [[Ireland]]) A slang term for [[Stella Artois]] brand [[beer]]. " but inbev deleted that. http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=prev&oldid=1...

the more interesting stuff is on the forums

If you want the more interesting stuff, the listings and the files and the links than you will have to go to the forums. You can say, hey ekz, but most of your stuff is already public. Yep, some stuff. The other stuff ain't here and will never be here.

Every so many weeks I will publish the list of forums I am travelling to and where I may post some stuff.

the one I like most for the moment is wtalk

wikiscanner is cracking under the load

Could not connect -- error: Unknown MySQL server host 'Databases are being optimized. Worry not, WikiScanner goodness will soon be yours!' (1)

so everybody is discovering that what they were reading was maybe written by an pr agent, secret agent, manipulator, hyper or concerned party and not by an factseeking volunteer helped by a community of do-gooders that would guarantee that no such thing would happen on wikipedia ?

JAVASCRIPT IS SUPERMAN

With javascript malware coders are telling us that they can do nearly everything and that it should be blocked in the browser if you want to start surfing the safe way. That is quite difficult because javascript has been built in thousands of websites and surfing with toggling javascript on/off seems quite time-consuming also. Analysing javascript for malicious scripts is also difficult and may slow internetsurfing down to an unacceptable speed.

here is one proof

If you are behind a firewall you shouldn't see the ip address of your machine with this test http://www.proxyblind.org/javaip.shtml  (only java)

but the chances are great that you will when the tool uses javascript to get the real ip address from your machine with this http://www.proxyblind.org/javaipp.shtml

proxies exploding over the web

maybe it is the sign of the times but proxies are exploding over the web. The reason seems to be that at one hand there are free php scripts available and free hosts that will you set up such a service on any php or cgi site in no time. At the other hand there is a real demand for such sites - although you can't see it in the hundreds of listings and rankings that are published.

Next week you can expect to find a lot of new tools for netvibes, rss proxy lists and other resources coming up to help you through the rumble.

One should at the other side be careful not to blindly trust anything that is called a proxy. It can be a honeypot from an intelligence or police service or it can even be badly programmed so that the information still comes through while you are thinking that you can do whatever you like because you think you are behind a filter (but you don't expect it not to work).

At the other side it makes the work much harder for networkdefenders because these proxies are developing in such a way that they try to circumvent any block that you are setting. The daily growing list makes it harder for administrators to keep such tools out of their webtraffic. This is necessary because people (sadly) think they can do anything they dreamed off when they think they are anonymous. Even if it becomes a nightmare that will haunt them afterwards for some time.

Warpedia not wikipedia

As wikipedia has much more traffic than any encyclopedia or informational site, it is a real war that is being waged for the control of the pages in which every tool and trick will be used to place spam, host stolen content without copyrights and change the content of the articles.

Wikiscanner is just a small part of this war

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:IP_addresses_used_f...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Most_vandalized_pa...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Ipblocklist
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Log/block
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Conflict_of_intere...
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Spam_blacklist
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Wikipedia_spam_clea...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Administrators%27_...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_on_ope...
and if that was not enough, compromised systems are being used to spam and attack wikipedia

stupedia is not an encyclopedia

How to bypass wikiscanner

So you want to change things on wikiscanner without being discovered as the firm or institute that is responsable for the changes ?

* do it from home and look for an ISP that gives you each time you log on another IP address

* use a proxy to connect to wikipedia, change often your proxy

* hire an outside firm with the obligation to change very often from username and IP address

Whatever you do, do it wisely

* do not vandalize a page from the beginning, begin with building up a reputation by correcting facts and grammar and adding interesting links

The best thing is to keep it building up so it becomes too big after a while to be closely guarded by the freelancer

* change negative words by less negative words in a second stage

* change language, maybe you can't get control over the english pages, but can you write whatever you want on the same pages in another language

* if you have control over a page or subject than you have to build up traffic by submmitting the link all over the web so that you get the position in the search engines and the neutral pages don't.

I told you that this is stupedia, you are stupid to believe this is a system with controlled content, this system is just out of control.

I am not connected to any publisher, I just hate the blatant anti-encyclopedia position of the founder of wikipedia. Facts, nothing but the facts.
