Wikipedia Scanner also points the finger at commercial organisations that have
modified entries about the pages.
One in particular is Diebold, the company that supplied electronic voting
machines for the controversial US election in 2000.
In October 2005, a person using a Diebold computer removed paragraphs about
Walden O'Dell, chief executive of the company, which revealed that he had been
"a top fund-raiser" for George Bush.
A month later, other paragraphs and links to stories about the alleged rigging
of the 2000 election were also removed.
The paragraphs and links have since been reinstated.
Diebold officials have not responded to requests by the BBC for information
about the changes.
