All this talk of deliberately wrong edits has
apparently inspired a
misguided person, one [[User:AlHalawi]], to do it.
FYI, this is the experiment, and the 100% grade RC patrol folks attained.
And a longer post by Ross Mayfield about this:
just to add he added all mistakes (total of 13) from _one_ account. And it is
almost clear that finding one mistake will lead to the discovery of all the
others. It's good to see that it was discovered, but given the method he used
I didn't expected the result to be different.
He later wrote about this:
"If I were to do it again (I won’t), I would have spread my changes out over a
few days, and posted from different username/ip addresses. I know that some
of the more obscure changes were caught in a chain from some of the less
obscure ones. I guess I don’t make a particularly good wiki troll; which
isn’t a terrible thing to be bad at."
