I propose that in the new software, we might want to have better tools
for tracing the work of pranksters.


This shows that the first revision and 4th revision, both written by
168.143.112.xxx, contain references to a "secret Arabic language",
with a link.  The link is to a page with a "dictionary".  Upon
inspection, you'll see that the "dictionary" is for a pig-latin

So this is obviously a "joke", although since it isn't really funny
and probably isn't meant to be funny, a "hoax" or "prank" is probably
a better word.

Naturally, I wonder what else 168.143.112.xxx may have edited.  It
would be nice to be able to click on that as a link and see.

Or perhaps we could just have a special search function to allow us to
do this.
