“Here is an interesting item you might not be aware of: 22 of Top 30 Wikipedia Editors are Robots.

Scholars studying Wikipedia tend to ignore or quickly dismiss the influence of bots on the site, even though of the top 30 most prolific editors on the site, 22 are bots. In fact, Wikipedia itself erases their contributions; according to Geiger, when a Wikipedia “user account is flagged as a bot, all edits made by that user disappear from lists of recent changes so that editors do not review them.”

Got that? Changes made by Wikipedia robots are automatically approved. Changes may by human editors need review. I have to ask: by computer robots or humans?

Inquiring minds might be interested in the list of articles on robots that I accumulated recently.
