‘Grayfell’, a Wikipedia ‘editor’, removed a link to the ICMI18 website on the Wikipedia page for AVfM just 18 minutes after it was posted

We’ve had very good reasons to expose the hostility of Wikipedia ‘editors’ in relation to men’s issues, men’s rights organisations, and individual MRAs, but this story takes the biscuit. I was pleased to be emailed by a supporter who’d been checking out the Wikipedia page on AVfM, and was pleased to see a line linking to the July conference website, and alerted me to it. I was pleased to hear the news, but here’s the thing. When I checked out the AVfM website, the text was nowhere to be seen. So I checked out the history, and learned the following had been posted at 23:49:

He [Mike Buchanan] announced on his party’s website on 1st December 2017, that a contract had been signed with a new venue in London, for a conference over July 20-22, 2018.

The line was followed by a reference, clicking on which would take readers to this website.

At 00:07 – just 18 minutes after the addition had been posted – ‘Grayfell’, a Wikipedia ‘editor’, removed it. His (or her?) justification was as follows:

Find a reliable, independent source, please.

The history of the edit is here. So this website, posted by an established political party campaigning on men’s issues, giving details of a forthcoming International Conference on Men’s Issues, is not “reliable”.

Wikipedia’s coverage of gender-related matters is predominantly written, edited, and censored by feminists. 


About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
