This RFC is being opened in order to further a centralized discussion concerning actions to be taken against US Congressional staffers and possibly other federal employees who have engaged in unethical and possibly libelous behavior in violation of Wikipedia policies (WP:NPOV, WP:CIV). The editors from these IP ranges have been rude, abrasive, immature, and show disregard for Wikipedia policy. The editors have frequently tried to censor the history of elected officials, often replacing community articles with censored biographies despite other users’ attempts to dispute these violations. They also violate Wikipedia:Verifiability, by deleting verified reports, while adding flattering things about members of Congress that are unverified.
The offending editors have been blocked. This RFC is needed to gather community comments. It is proposed that a one week block is not enough.
So just to be clear Hill Staffers: the Iraq war is really causing kids to die and is a disgrace. Global warming is really happening. This administration is bought off by Big Oil, and yes, DeLay is guilty of being a jerk and worse.
Now here’s a news flash for you too – Geek are smart. They can track you down to the computer level. Oh and you’re on government time, using taxpayer funded equipment. Can we say getting sacked? Just look at what happened to Washingtonette. Oh and you will not get a book deal out of this either. Only laughter. At you.
