If you look at the history of the Wiki, a certain IP traces back to a Matt Joens (ResNet)

True, but its only fair to let her have some privacy. Though I really wish they wouldn't lie, but say undisclosed southern California UC campus or something of that kidney.

If you look at the wikipedia edit history for the page you will see it was 100% factual with all her personal details, but then the resnet ip came along and kept editing it with lies... big lies to start with, but those kept getting reverted so then smaller lies which people seem to not mind so much to change.

You do know you are allowed to edit wikipedia, right? If you see something that is wrong, just change it.

Does UCSD really put your initials in your web address?

Just for the record Evelyn Lin has weighed in against her own wikipedia page.

Not safe for work: http://www.raincoatreviews.com/forums/s ... tcount=752

Hi guys,
I personally don't like the Wiki entry because people keep attempting to post personal information about me on the site. I don't think it's particullarly fair for a page dedicated to me to have information that I don't want/not true on it... I mean, I keep going back and deleting what they write AND writing stuff that is cited and it keeps getting deleted... Not exactly accurate if they're going to delete what I write.


Ohh well, fame is a double edged sword at best.

True. A lot of porn star entries have the performer's real name and real biography listed. There is no way to have an accurate encyclopedia article without listing it. Otherwise the article becomes a fansite/advertising venue.
