Opening sentence unclear[edit]

The opening sentence states ASCEND is the GC on November 3, 2016, open source, mathematical modelling system developed at Carnegie Mellon University since late 1978. What on earth is GC? Best wishes. RobbieIanMorrison (talk) 14:28, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

@RobbieIanMorrison: This apparently meaningless text was added to this article in November 2016. Should we peer review this article to prevent future incidents of vandalism like this one? Jarble (talk) 03:43, 25 January 2017 (UTC) Jarble (talk) 03:41, 25 January 2017 (UTC)
Hello Jarble. Thanks for your response. It seems that this kind of vandalism has occurred only once on this article and my instinct is that the threshold for placing it under peer review has not been met. Furthermore, the vandalism was detected through normal processes and quite quickly too. I am not skilled in dealing with abuse on Wikipedia though, so if you want to request the page be placed under peer review, then please go ahead. By the way, the page still needs fixing. Best wishes.
