    " .mil" tracking up the Internet

    _wikipedialogo_bwb Bingo! It's the Pentagon, according to Catherine McRae Hockmuth over at Ares. She describes a program, Wiki Scanner, that tracks anonymous Wikipedia edits:

    As much time as DHS employees are spending editing Wikipedia entries [4,018 edits],

    their work is nothing compared to the folks at the Department of Defense, whose .mil account holders have been very busy on Wikipedia.

    The defense agency with the most edits originating from its .mil address is Army's Network Information Center, with 43,823 edits.

    The U.S. Air Forces comes in second with 21,478 edits,

    while the Naval Surface Warfare Center has 18, 591. The numbers drop dramatically from there with fourth and fifth place going to the

    Pentagon overall and the Office of the Secretary of Defense at 3,355 and 2,685 edits, respectively.

    DOD, .mil, others, they must know they were leaving tracks all over the place?

    Didn't they?

    I see them in my logs often but here they are just reading, on Wiki they edit?

    Wouldn't that info be actionable Intel?

    They should have been wearing boots.
