Wikipedia blocks edits from Congress

Apparently some people in Washington have so much time on their hands that they can inappropriately and repeatedly edit Wikipedia. After warning Congress back in 2012 to stop it, Wikipedia has now banned changes by anyone from Congress for 10 days. Most changes aren't a problem, but some are definitely false, propaganda, or crazy. The changes are noted on "a Twitter feed, @congressedits, which posts every change made from the government-owned address.". I'm glad someone can at least partially control Congress. Too bad Wikipedia can't make them work together more effectively as well. Read about it here http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-28481876.
