There have been a few recent media reports in recent weeks about the foundation blocking accounts and ip addresses who contribute to fan boy write ups of corporate pages and identities of individuals who manage these corporations.
Obviously the foundation has not got around to one of the worlds largest mining companies and their CEO Wikipedia fan page.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_Walsh_%28businessman%29
You will note the following Rio Tinto IP's (UK Corporate + Australian Corporate) have anonymously edited the article.http://whois.domaintools.com/188.8.131.52http://whois.domaintools.com/184.108.40.206http://whois.domaintools.com/220.127.116.11

I'm certain a majority of the article content has been written by Rio Tintos social media people.
Someone please nominate Sam Walsh article for Featured Article to stir and wake the administrators up.
I'm sure they have better checking tools available than I have.This post has been edited by Brutus: Sat 12th September 2015, 11:00am
