Wikipedia bans Scientology IPs from 'cleaning' CoS reputation

Wikipedia says it will block Scientologists from making changes to Wikipedia pages – in order to prevent propaganda changes and what it calls “sock puppet” attacks. Tho Wikipedia will look at blocking Church of Scientology IP addresses, I’d be surprised if it can thwart the craftiness and zeal of CoS online advocates who are fervent in their defence of their chosen brand of religion (fact, I stand by waiting for CoS people to send me unidentified comments criticising the fact that I even mention this story!) Course, CoS isnt the only org fond of tarting up or reputation cleansing via Wikipedia; step forward devotees and PR pals of the US Republican party, Democrats, Fox News, Britain’s Labour party.
