Early response to false claims in Wikipedia reports an empirical study on false claim insertion in Wikipedia.
P. Magnus made vandalisms anonymously and from various IP addresses across separate philosophy articles, e.g., the edit "Kant's poetry was much admired, and handwritten manuscripts circulated amond his friends and associates" in the "Immanuel Kant" article. After 48 hours 18 of 36 of this kind of vandalism remained.
