Dear Sir/Madam,

I am one of the administrators of the English version of the Wikinews project which can be found at Along with other editors I have had to deal with childish vandalism of a number of key pages on our site by someone at a FCPS-registered IP address, specifically You may view the history of disruptive edits made by this person at the following URL:

Click on the "diff" item next to each edit to see what text was put in.

I would really appreciate if someone could have words with the person responsible for these edits. They do not seem to realise that there is little or no anonymity on the Internet and their actions can be traced back.

At the moment this IP address is blocked from making edits on the Wikinews project, we really don't like blocking educational establishments as wikis are an excellent tool for introducing collaborative working practices and encouraging people to join an online community.

Your attention to this matter would be greatly appreciated.


Brian McNeil
