Some of the crew appear to have got smart and are using mobile internet/computer dongles it seems, could probably find even more of them if you looked on UK politics related articles and looked for mobile internet IP addresses...
True, that would be smart, but what's really
smart is that they've learned the most important lesson there is when it comes to POV advocacy on Wikipedia - never, ever interact with the so-called "community."
It's the same method that was used successfully for so long by Mark Binmore and, no doubt, many others whom we just haven't noticed yet - because without the manufactured drama that comes from such interactions, WP is just too big to allow for adequate ideological monitoring.
That's not to say all of 18.104.22.168's edits were unreasonable, particularly if you happen to be a conservative yourself. But my guess is that as more people catch on to this AnonIP non-engagement strategy, most ideologically-oriented content on Wikipedia will become too biased and one-sided (depending on who has control) to be worth much of anything, assuming it isn't already.
