WIKIPEDIA MAKES NO GUARANTEE OF VALIDITY – problems with Wikipedia
Wikipedia has been known for banning web pages that expose crimes against children. Many of its pages about child abuse crimes attempt to exonerate the perpetrators of these crimes, even when they were found guilty and lost all of their appeals. Important information showing the guilt of these criminals is deleted by editors vested in covering up information that backs the perpetrators’ guilt.
EXCLUSIVE: Pedophiles Find a Home on Wikipedia By Jana Winter June 25, 2010 FOXNews.com
Wikipedia has become home base for a loose worldwide network of pedophiles who are campaigning to spin the popular online encyclopedia in their favor and are trying to lure more people into their world, an investigation by FoxNews.com confirms.
Chat room posts show a clear effort by pedophiles to use Wikipedia, which can be accessed unfiltered in public schools across the country, to further their agenda. Message board posts often include links to specific Wikipedia articles that the participants say need to be edited to “normalize” pedophile behavior in the public eye and to recruit more pedophiles into their community.
“Pedophiles have campaigned to push their point of view that ‘pedophilia is OK and doesn’t hurt children’ on Wikipedia,” says Xavier Von Erck, director of the online pedophile watchdog organization Perverted Justice Foundation and Wikisposure.com, its offshoot project devoted to tracking pedophiles and pedophile activism on Wikipedia. “This has been a problem since Wikipedia started.”
In response to a request for comment on this story, Sue Gardner, executive director of Wikimedia Foundation, Wikipedia’s parent organization, said in a statement:
“Wikipedia has a long-held, zero-tolerance policy towards pedophilia or pedophilia advocacy and child pornography. The Wikimedia community is vigilant about identifying and deleting any such material. Any allegations to the contrary are outrageous and false.”
….The article on pedophilia, in its suggestions for further reading, suggests other Wikipedia pages edited by pedophiles, including “Child Sexuality,” and “NAMBLA,” a page about the North American Man/Boy Love Association. That page links directly to NAMBLA’s website, as do 25 other Wikipedia pages.
Wikipedia also has 32 external links to GirlChat, 14 to a Danish pro-pedophile website and 12 to BoyChat….
But an investigation by FoxNews.com shows that pedophiles are gaming this system, using their message boards to rally opposition and to sabotage attempts by other Wikipedia community members to rid the online encyclopedia of pro-pedophilia content.

On May 7, FoxNews.com reported exclusively that Wales had personally deleted many of the images from Wikimedia’s servers, and that he’d ordered that thousands more be purged. Now many of those images have been restored to their original web pages.
