Wikipedia has blocked U.S. House of Representatives computers from editing the site because of controversial and offensive editing, according to reports.
This is the third time in the last three months for the ban on the House computers, with the latest offense being anonymously editing the Wikipedia page for "Orange is the New Black," according to The Hill. The House computers were detected by a common Internet Protocol address and banned on Wednesday. From the article:
The final straw came on Wednesday afternoon, when someone from the House edited the page for the Netflix hit show “Orange is the New Black” to change the characterization of an actor from “a real transgender woman” to “a real man pretending to be a woman.”
