Re: block wikipedia edits

More than one way to solve this issue I'm sure.

You could filter by URL. For example, when I click on the edit link for the article on the Cisco PIX, I go to the following URL:

en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Cisco_PIX&action=edit& section=4

So one way you could filter this is to block URLS to wikipedia that contain the string "action=edit"

Re: block wikipedia edits

Editing probably involves a HTTP POST versus a GET. I didn't verify mind you;-) So, you could block all HTTP POST requests to wikipedia.
