Wikipedia is one of the most highly visited sites on the internet, and a pattern seems to be developing of Wikipedia articles about Iranians who happen to disagree with the regime being targeted for rapid deletion.
The Iranian Cyber Army has taken credit for hacking websites in the past. Iranian intelligence is reportedly trolling Facebook. And so, it would not be surprising if they also became Wikipedia editors and targeted Wikipedia articles for deletion.
The Wikipedia page for Fullbright scholar Sadegh Malek Shahmirzadi is under attack, and may soon be deleted if the deletion is not challenged. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sadegh_Malek_Shahmirz... Archaeologists who publicize pre-Islamic culture may be under attack in Iran in the current political environment, and it is possible the attacks extend into cyberspace.
Sadegh Malek Shahmirzadi
Ph.D. in Prehistoric Anthropology
Ministry of Higher Education and Tehran University fellowship
author of many books
head of Sialk Reconsideration Project
The Wikipedia page for composer and producer, Mahdyar Aghajani is under attack, and may soon be deleted if the deletion is not challenged. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahdyar_Aghajani Aghajani has spoken out against censorship, and he fled Iran to escape persecution for his music. He works with filmmaker Bahman Ghobadi, whose girlfriend Roxana Saberi was imprisoned in Iran on charges of espionage.
The Wikipedia page for writer, translator and women's rights activist, Akram Pedramnia, is under attack, and may soon be deleted if the deletion is not challenged. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akram_Pedramnia Wikipedia article lists Pedramnia as a women's rights activist and heavily critical of Iranian censorship that opposes the freedom of writers and artists. I'm unable to find much more information on her. The regime has a pattern of persecuting women's rights activists, though.
