Long term vandalism (mosquito tactic?)
There was incredible deterioration of article content through vandal attacks over time.
It was mainly swarm of one-edit (or few-edit) IP accounts, which took over the article over the long period of three years. And they had torn the content of the article into the pieces in the end. What a shame! Kind of mosquito tactic. It is shame that it eventually succeeded to this degree.
The defense of article was simply worn down by constant attacks. This is alarming.
It looks like the culprits really tested under which conditions the community will be unable to track back, that what happened actually was baleful edit. They intermezzed the baleful edits with lot of back-and fro edits, where they even let other IPs to revert obvious vandalisms, so the antecedent deleterious edits of content happened to be lost in cover.
Lot of semi-automatic reverts prevented any casual patrolman from restoring it to fully original shape, because the history become very confused. At least I guess so, after going through the history click-by-click, step by step. It is unbeliavable. And horrible. It was originally quite nice start article.
See my analysis here: User:Reo On/Passive transport. I tried quite a lot to be careful. And listed all beneficial changes and archived all untracked serious deteriorating edits.
This article has actually about 1000 pageviews per day! , it would be nice, if it wouldf last in better shape then this: 19th October 2010. In the end, I restored it to the state in may 2008 (analysis.)
Movement down concentration gradient
What about including that passive transport is due to movement down concentration gradient? Such a simple principle, has been omitted I believe, little earthlings! 188.8.131.52 (talk) 13:06, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
