Now let us see what happens after the text above was amended to read thus:
Radio Caroline is the name of a station that broadcast from 1964 to 1967. However, several unrelated radio stations, all with controversial background histories, and not all of them tied to one geographical location, organization or audience have subsequently used this name.
From currently available and authenticated documentary evidence, the originator and first user of this name for a radio station call sign was Jocelyn Stevens of Stevens Press Ltd., a firm registered in London, England under the laws of the United Kingdom. Stevens was a printer and publisher of several titles including a fashion magazine called 'Queen'. His editor, prior to Radio Caroline going on the air was Beatrix Miller who had been using the eponymous name for many years within her own style sheet to describe the typical reader of Stevens' fashion magazine called 'Queen'. Beatrix Miller resigned when Stevens announced his decision to become involved with an offshore commercial radio station based upon a former Danish ferry boat anchored off southeast England just outside UK Territorial Waters. This was before Radio Caroline first came on the air, but on the same day that a sales company representing the station was registered in the Republic of Ireland outside British jurisdiction.
This station first began test transmissions on February 27, 1964, and shortly before a new British law called Marine Offences Act came into effect at midnight on August 14, 1967 and made it illegal for UK citizens to be involved with it, Jocelyn Stevens severed his relationship with the station which was not controlled by a company of that name. The British Board of Trade attempted to discover what the name and location of its operating company was, without success. A verifiable record of factual events following August 14, 1967 are still drowning in a sea of contradictory press reports.
Because the radio station was operating outside of the laws of the United Kingdom, Stevens did not register a British company by the name of Radio Caroline Ltd in the United Kingdom, or in any other country where his ownership could be legally traced back to him. Instead, Jocelyn Stevens employed a well-know British public relations firm to create a fake ownership and operating history of the radio station. One such myth was that the original Radio Caroline had been "founded in 1964 by Ronan O'Rahilly and George Drummond  initially to circumvent the record companies' control of popular music broadcasting in the United Kingdom and the BBC's radio broadcasting monopoly." Over the years after 1967, many different radio stations have broadcast under the call sign of Radio Caroline. They are not related to the original venture headed by Jocelyn Stevens.
Well, lookee here, that didn't take long for the anorak trolls to leap into action, did it? They have already deleted the above text and replaced it with the original nonsense text. This is what is on their history of edits page:
JUST LOOK AT GHMYRTLE'S WIKIPEDIA QUALIFICATIONS .... LOTS OF 'BADGES' AND NO COMMON SENSE!
On Wikipedia for 15 years, over 119,000 edits!
Are they all as stupid as the one about Radio Caroline?
This is why Wikipedia is such a waste of time and so misleading as an instrument of educational knowledge. It is also the reason why we want to read what Paul Rusling is going to release on to the market within the next few hours. Is it going to be his original nonsense incorporating intellectual theft from us and then twisted to fit his own crazy and fictitious (Wikipedia influenced) style, or is he going to steal more from us to amend some of his original and glaring errors? We shall soon find out. That is why we want to wait and see what he does next before releasing more original research. As for Wikipedia we will keep a distant eye upon it but let the anorak fools play its game of replacing fact with original fiction. Both Rusling and Wikipedia will give us a good bench mark for asserting the 'us' versus 'them' approach that we have.
Like most spineless and stupid anoraks we received this nameless challenge not to post the following comments. What the writer does not seem to understand is that over and over and over again in the past we have done precisely what 'it' suggests with other editors of Wikipedia pages, and over and over and over again they have ALL deleted the truth and preserved a LIE. So, here is the latest nameless anorak challenge which makes us wonder why this person does not identify themself, and why they do not follow-through on their own advice?

Why not discuss your Wikipedia revision as invited instead of attacking the editor who doesn't accept your submission at face value? Why would you expect him to do so? Look at it from his point of view. It is contrary to all published information, so you need to justify it. Can't be bothered and would rather just rant about it, I guess.
